Episode 8: In Transition

Why do so many marriages end in divorce? Why are so many people lonely and don’t find happiness in a traditional partnership? Why are there different types of sexuality? Why do many parents experience a conflict between wishing to spend time with their children and wishing to devote more time to intellectual and creative work? Are we experiencing a sexual evolution of humanity that is parallel to its intellectual and social development?

In this podcast episode, Mary McGovern from Copenhagen/Scotland and Pernilla Rosell from Stockholm discuss Martinus’s analyses of the pole transformation and the effects of the changing balance of the poles that we can observe in society today.

According to Martinus, all human beings have two sexual poles in their superconsciousness, a masculine pole and a feminine pole. In the animal kingdom, one of these poles is latent, while the other is dominating, thus creating the two sexes that we know as male and female animals. A completely one-poled sexual state is characterised by the instinct for self-preservation and selfishness that we see in instinctual animal behaviour. For humans, the latent pole in both sexes is beginning to develop, which means that men and women are slowly developing into more intellectual, balanced and loving beings. Ultimately, a third sex will emerge, a truly human gender with the highest moral standard of neighbourly love. The sexual pole transformation is the driving force behind all creation.

Mary and Pernilla reflect on how different human beings experience this transitional period today and on how we can find support and a better understanding of human sexual evolution by studying Martinus’s analyses. Pernilla also talks about how she first met Martinus’s analyses through her grandmother and her father, and how she herself found support in Martinus’s analyses of the sexual pole transformation during her own experience of going through a divorce.
