Disruption & Effects Caused by Early Trauma

December 23, 2006

We have discussed, of late, the degree to which experience, cultural pressures, Family Icons, and such impinge upon the general outward curve of the Overleaf fractals. They are secondarily influenced by the Monadal fractals, of course, and while all such interpolations are part of the hazards of the physical plane, it does not change the fact that every one of these modifications effects the full range of potential within the fractals present and can, at times, be so extreme as to "disconnect" the Fragment not only from the algorithm but from the fractilic expression. Such things as the sexual abuse of children, the cultural disruption of a child under the age of twelve, the significant social disorganization for a child again under the age of twelve, will tend to have marked effects (and for that matter, affects) on the Fragment in question, in large part because brain development has not yet adapted to that level of consequential evaluation.

To be aware of these qualifications imposed upon the fractals of Overleaves is an important step in understanding not only the means by which Chief Features "sink their teeth into" the individual Fragment, but the way by which some of the most concentrated intentions become "derailed". (Hahaha) For those Fragments who, for whatever reason, choose not to confront these issues in the life, the inward fractilic curve becomes more pronounced more earlier in life than it does for Fragments not necessarily more compromised.

It is of note, we would think, that many Fragments use creative outlets as an "end run" around the consequences of all manner of fractilic karma and trauma. That does not mean that all talented Fragments expressing themselves are compensating for abuses, we did not say that nor did we mean to imply it. However, we are very much aware there are many many Fragments that without some degree of misalignment in early life might not have taken the final step towards created expression. This is particularly true in Young Souls. For Mature Souls the impact on the fractilic curves is most pronounced. For Old Souls, while there are fewer adherences to the consequences of the modification, there can be an inward conflict with the nature of the Old Soul Cycle and dealing with temporarily displaced trauma. Baby Souls of course, regard all trauma at any stage as equally disruptive and "wrong".

By becoming aware of the degree of disruption caused by early trauma (that being trauma before the brain development can accommodate it), Young, Mature, and Old Souls each can find a way to restore the curve should they choose to take the time to deal with the impact of trauma upon the Overleaves. There is no "time schedule" for such adjustment, but the degree to which Monadal transits may be, and we stress may, be associated with the degree to which the Fragment is willing to address the distorting influences of the trauma.

Almost all Fragments experience some trauma early in life, but those that impinge experiences beyond the capacity of the brain to handle are the ones most likely to linger in the psychological makeup and over time will be the ones imposing the most distortion on the Overleaves and the Monadal processes. While all is chosen, identifying and dealing with such traumas while unpleasant in and of itself, can be the key to the positive poles of the Overleaves, should the Fragment be willing to recognize and validate the perceptions associated with it.
