Then, within the chrysalis, within the body of the dormant caterpillar, a new and very different kind of creature, the butterfly, starts to form. This confused biologists for a long time. How could a different genome plan exist within the caterpillar to form a different creature? Such metamorphosis makes a good metaphor for the great changes globalisation, in the sense of world transformation, is bringing about. Bruce Lipton narrates the process of a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly.
This short film uses the metaphor to provide an inspirational context for contemporary social activism. Using imagery, music and words it tells the story of a great shift in consciousness and reality that is occurring on planet earth. Following an example from the biological world, this video parallels the transformation that occurs in the metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly with the socio-eco-spiritual transformation that is occurring all over the world as we speak.
This metaphor for the great turning of our time is a beautiful one and I hope it helps to inspire the emergence of more imaginal cells as the shift continues. That's the chrysalis. And inside that chrysalis, as we know JAD: I think that -- I actually have never thought about it, to be honest.
I don't -- I don't understand how it works. I thought, like, I knew and I don't. JAD: Hey, hold up. Now that I've thought about it for a second, isn't it simply that the caterpillar is inside the shell, it sort of snuggles up, and then it grows a wing off of its right side and then off of its left side, and it just pops wings out?
That is actually what I thought, but that's not right at all. He took a tiny little chrysalis There were no legs.
There was no antenna, no spiky spine. He exploded it! JAD: Wait, I don't understand. Where did -- where did the caterpillar go? Its head, legs Muscles themselves just sort of, like, dissolve away into individual muscle cells. And some of the cells rupture and so their insides, the amino acids, the proteins, those all go floating out into space.
JAD: Wait, you're saying that the caterpillar just becomes like a soup of cells? MOLLY: That question -- that question is the big, fat, metaphysical, quasi-religious, semi-mystical, philosophical question that people have been asking forever.
So one of the big arguments that was taking place He's a biologist and historian. And he says back in the s, when naturalists saw that goo, they just thought, "Oh, well clearly what's happening is that He's a philosopher from the Claremont School of Theology. And he says from the beginning, people thought about and wrote about metamorphosis It says somewhere in the New Testament, "Behold, the old has passed away.
The new has surely come.

MOLLY: Basically, people saw the caterpillar as a symbol of our lowly earth-bound lazy bodies, right? And then the butterfly was sort of casting away all of that and it represented our soul up in heaven, sort of in its most perfect form. Never mind that butterflies actually like to eat Because you think "Oh, I've got all -- I'm going to just become more -- a more perfect version of myself," right?

MOLLY: But then the converse side of that is, you cut open a chrysalis and it looks like a whole bunch of goo, and you think that is a hell of a lot of change. So the thing is that this transformation, either of the butterfly or of my soul, seems so dramatic, so miraculous that it made some people think, like, jeez, if you're gonna go to heaven and the process transformed that much, is it even you up there?
Otherwise, like, someone else will be up there enjoying your afterlife. Just not all the elements.
How Does a Caterpillar Turn into a Butterfly? - Scientific American
MOLLY: Yeah, I'm -- I'm so intrigued by that, because I also think, like, what -- like, what -- when you undergo such a transformation, what -- what do they think carries through? Every time they get a whiff, they head in the opposite direction. You get this We're ready for the drum roll. But these moths hated it. I think it's amazing that a caterpillar can have an experience, go into its chrysalis, five weeks pass. Emerge as a seemingly different organism, and that it still can recall experiences that happened to it when it was a caterpillar.
Mini Lesson Plan: Metamorphosis
Some of the brain is dissolved away, but there's this, like, microscopic fragment that has made it through. And Martha suspects that nestled into that fragment is this memory. There's a speck of gut, some nerves, some muscle. It's not as gooey as it seems. JAD: God, it's like -- it's like -- I can't help wondering what does the butterfly know about its caterpillar life?
Like, it knows this one tiny thing, but how much else? Does it know it crawled? That it had But Martha says that these types of questions, like, come up all the time. In fact, one of her colleagues And he felt like this was, you know, when he ascended that he wondered if he would then be able to remember his life on Earth.
The continuity question. But there's a little more freaking cool. Jan -- his name's written Swammerdam, but is probably more pronounced Svamardam.
He just opens it up at the back, along its back. A long line. And what he sees inside, or what he can show them is that, in fact, there are some of the structures of the future butterfly.
