It is one thing to do thousands of these, and quite another to measure the same person monthly, or frequently. The insights come from seeing what behaviors, what moods, what results correlate with what measurements.
In this article I will talk about those correlations, in the context of power vs. force, spirit vs. predatory genes.
I’ll begin with a little history: the term predatory genes came from a book, The Cure by Douglas Richards.
The book talks about those predatory genes as if they made a person a predator, or maybe even a psychopath.
And that may happen occasionally, but upon further examination, what is closer to the truth is that the predatory genes are the selfish genes Richard Dawkins talks about… the genes that only care about you getting more than others… a definite driving force in behavior.
So when I look at it this way, a whole new picture shows up… a picture that makes it easier to understand what happens and why…
First I am going to look at couples… married, not married, if they are in a relationship where they join forces, I will call them a couple. Not just friends, partners.
In my experience, every couple is built on an interesting lopsided principle: one will bring the spirit the other will bring the force.
In predatory genes terms that means one will have a 10 measure, the other zero or 1.
Single people with either extreme will have some interesting things to teach, but let’s look first at couples.
In a ‘power couple’ we’ll see one person pushing the other to perform… while they either don’t want to, or can’t on their own… for reasons of their own. This party, without the pushing, would be OK with having little, enjoying the pace of their activities, the type of their activities. No ambition, no high dreams.
It is rare that the high predatory genes person is a producer, and if they are, they are resentful about having to produce.
- My parents’ case my mom had the 10, my dad had the zero predatory genes… My dad was pushed high on the proverbial ladder… his death was front page news on the official paper of Hungary.
My mom with her 10 forceful predatory genes was frustrated, and unhappy. And never amounted to much, despite her high ability to learn…
- My older brother: he is the one with the zero predatory genes. His grades in school were passing grades, and my father had to use all his substantial political influence to get him accepted to university with just passing grades.
At university he found a woman whose predatory genes were 10. They studied together, he graduated, and was steadily pushed by her to reach his potential… And she was the exception: she also became an achiever. Very rare…
- My downstairs neighbors: she was the pusher, he was the happy go lucky… he produced results beyond his own potential
- My landlords… she is the pusher… he is the pushover… (they also met at university) both are successful producers
- My next door neighbors… she is the pusher… he is the pushover… everything works famously (they also met at university) both are successful producers
- One of my teachers… works famously. She is the pusher, he is the pushed, I am enjoying the outstanding results of their union.
So these are the examples for successful couplings.
But it doesn’t always work out.
Another example is
- an educated woman, unambitious, uneducated man… She didn’t manage to be the wind under his wings… he had no wings.
- my younger brother’s story is similar, although he was with the 10 predatory genes, not his wife. It took him 15 years to be able to push his wife out of dead center and from being a non-producer. He himself was not a producer… just very very very frustrated…
The rule seems to be that the high predatory genes person is looking for someone to dominate and push
But if you push on water, nothing much will happen.
So when a couple is referred to me, a couple with this imbalance, where the one has force, the other has nothing to turn into productions, the couple is not happy, and not successful.
My initial instinct is to even out the field: adjust down the 10, and adjust up the zero…
I have noticed that the relationship part of the couples becomes happier… and that is a very important part, one third of a successful life.
This takes us to what it’s like when someone is either extreme, left to their own devices:
Whether you have zero or 10 predatory genes, it seems that human success works best in partnership.
If you have too few predatory genes, you’ll be OK with just doing what you like to do… and not amount to much.
If you have too many predatory genes, you’ll be always frustrated, because you are pushing. Hard. Even worse if you picked someone who is low on abilities…
Let’s say you have 10 predatory genes, but low talent, low spirit, low ambition, low motive power. Result is pure and horrible frustration, anger, hate, resentment, depending on your soulcorrection.
If you know that, your job is to couple up with someone who has all that you don’t, and they would do well, better, if someone pushed them.
I, for one, would appreciate a partner like that.
But if the forceful person is only interested in themselves… this whole system doesn’t work out well.
Believe me, I have experimented enough to know.
What is the story about people who have 10 predatory genes, but only care about themselves and are not willing to push someone else to success?
They are also low on spirit. They don’t have the word ‘we’ in their vocabulary. They don’t, actually are unable to care. A typical issue for people with a number two in their numerological makeup.
Why them? because number 2 is not willing to be part of… Their attitude is ‘either you OR me’, no willingness to make it ‘you AND me’. That is their main soulcorrection.
Some more disjointed observations I don’t have enough to say about yet will have to wait until I do.
The inspirable/inspired measure: when the second number is lower than the first: the person is dispirited… meaning that spirit doesn’t get enough energy from their actions or goals to soar. What they are up to isn’t inspiring. They expect to get energy from the outside, not inside… and they are not getting it.
I have a few forceful students like that… they set a should-goal to themselves and push for it, but the spirit is dying inside. They also don’t listen to guidance…
Forcing suppresses the human spirit
Another insight: in the starting point measurement: desire is force/ambition is power. Desire is the predatory genes, ambition is the spirit.
And yet another place where I see this dichotomy, a struggle between two extremes: should is force/shouldn’t is spirit
there is an internal fight between force and power, between the energy of the predatory genes and the human spirit.
Remember the Kabbalistic story of the birth of the Universe: the Vessel got ‘infected’ with the desire to give, to contribute, to be a giver… even though the Vessel (the souls) was originally a receiver only.
- the energy of the giving is the spirit
- the energy of the receiving is the predatory genes
Always at odds. Rarely working out to be harmonious and peaceful.
What is there to do?
I have found that adjusting the predatory genes causes a better inner balance for people…
I originally had zero predatory genes… Adjusted and now I have 3. Three is the ideal number: it has some oomph, but it doesn’t kill the spirit.
If you have 10, your spirit is suppressed. So adjusting your predatory genes will allow the spirit to have some say in the matter of your behavior.
If you are a 2 numerologically speaking: you may need some more intervention… and sadly I don’t know what it is yet.
But given that I have many 2’s in my sphere, it is important to me, so you can count on me to ferret it out.
So what should you do now?
Get your predatory genes adjusted… it is easy for me, and it can make a huge difference for you.
