The First “Catastrophe” Is the Breaking of the Cellular “Sisterhood” and the Release of the “Mongrel Hordes”: The First Fall From Grace, Sperm/Egg and Conception, Part Four

The Breaking of the Vessels

Shoham continues: “God needs man to ‘mend’ the catastrophe of the breaking of the vessels” (p. 36). By this he means that God needs man to mend the catastrophe of birth. He has told us that “The transition from the womb to the world outside is violent in all respects” and that “The shock of birth . . . is not remembered by us . . . but it is undoubtedly registered by our sub- or preconscious and is projected, inter alia, by myths” (p. 36). This fits exactly with our experiences and discoveries in the experiential psychotherapies.

The First “Catastrophe”

But I disagree with his next statement: “The myth of the breaking of the vessels relates to the birth-giving mother and the ejection from the womb” (p. 36). The experiential psychotherapies tell us that birth is the second catastrophe and that the sense of catastrophe is associated initially with the time surrounding that of conception, with the first coming-into-form of sperm and egg.

With this in mind, the myth of the breaking of the vessels does not have to be related to the time of birth, e.g., to the breaking of the mother’s water; but can more accurately be situated, once again, farther back in time to that prior to conception. From this perspective the vessels that break are those of the testicles and the ovaries. The egg breaks free from the ovary; the sperm are suddenly released from the container of the testicles in an emission.

The Cellular “Sisterhood”

It is known that the egg is inside of the ovary for the whole lifetime of the mother. The eggs are actually developed in the ovaries of the fetus; the girl about to be born has her eggs inside of her already. And at puberty her ovaries begin to release these eggs. She starts “breaking the vessels,” so to speak. But the eggs have been there for a long time, sometimes going back twenty or thirty years. So by now a “sisterhood” has been created. Then what happens? At a certain point at the start of menstruation the vessels get broken, they start releasing eggs; before that they are sealed. Thus the “pact” between them (experientially speaking) is broken as well.

The “Faceless Masses,” The “Mongrel Hordes”

As for the male, the sperm are in the testicles a much shorter time. But the individual sperm are inside the testicle with hundreds of millions of other sperm. The testicle is also “sealed” until an ejaculation. One could think of that event as analogous as well to a breaking of the water before birth. The seal on that vessel has to be broken in order for the sperm to “spill” out.

The First Separation, First Removal from Divinity

Thought of this way, the result of the breaking of the vessels—which Shoham says is the scattering of the divine sparks—is much more easily understood. Its interpretation does not have to be stretched to fit the idea of the sparks being the neonate itself. Rather the scattering-of-divine-sparks myth fits perfectly with the idea of the release of multitudes of sperm and egg upon the “breaking of the vessels” of the testicles and ovaries.

For these reasons I believe Shoham is wrong when he says this myth relates to birth; instead it relates to the experience of conception—lending support to the idea that conception is the first catastrophe, the first separation, the first removal from Divinity. Thus the myths support what we have discovered experientially at the level of cellular consciousness.
