Impact of Societal Parameters on Cycles

July 1, 2006

Let us remark that societal parameters which weigh most heavily on the Baby Cycle and are pushed most powerfully in the Young Cycle, tend to become muted in their impact in the Mature Cycle. Of course no "sane" fragment is "immune" to societal pressures, but after the young cycle is completed, the fractilic nature of social interactions shifts to one of introspective awareness, rather than externalized awareness. Because of this shift, the manner in which Young and Mature Souls relate to the world has many distinct differences, and while both young and mature souls are apt to misunderstand the other, the engagement with the nature of society is at its uppermost.

The Baby Cycle is most thoroughly engaged with the rules of society. In instances of single influence societies both Young and Mature Souls tend to "fret" due to the nature not only of the perception but of the overall "goals". In dealing with the shifting emphasis from Baby to Young to Mature, all aspects of society and culture are encountered.

By the time the Mature Cycle is completed it is possible for the beginning Old Soul to distinguish socio-cultural "necessity" from socio-cultural "tradition", differences that are not apparent or valid to the Baby Soul and which have very little enduring impact on Old Souls past the mid-Cycle. That does not mean that fragments are unaffected by the nature of society at all levels of evolution, we did not say that nor did we mean to imply it, but the manner and degree to which the culture and society "weigh in" in terms of importance for any fragment, undergoes constant evolution as in all things but the fractal for this particular phase of evolution turns on very slow curves and is generally not "played out" until the final life.
