for many years now there are children whose conception is in vitro instead of in vivo.
more technology is arriving, crispr (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CRISPR) and today I read that some Japanese ( I think) researchers have been able to create eggcels out of cells taken from the tail of a mouse. Technique needs to be refined of course, but you get the idea.
pretty soon humans will be able to create humans in ways that were not to be thought of only half a century ago.
Now much debate about the ethical side of these developments is of course to be expected, but that's not what i aim for here. I think i will hide posts about the ethical side.
I wonder what it means on the spiritual level,
for me, the making of a baby is a joining of bodies, energies and preferably spirits. but one way or another, a being not yet physical enters the action and starts to make a connection with father and mother. At that moment the twosome becomes a threesome, some people are aware of this.
then the new being sort of attaches itself to the energetic body of the mother to be, and i think that at the moment that the fetus is physically 'sound' this new body stats to enmesh itself with the small physical body. I think that these processes probably are not linear but sort of 'vague' a slow dipping into first the energetical body of the mother and later into the physical. Sort of slowly lowering vibrations, or something....
these are my thoughts on the conceptions of a baby.
Further, I know that IVF children are more prone to developmental problems then the old fashioned produced baby.
But I wonder, what the hell happens to the new spirit when those first stages are in vitro? When it misses the threesome, the slowly dipping in the energy of the mum in those first days???
