Brief Summary: 

The implantation journey of the blastocyst/embryo is traced throughout its many biologic/embryologic transitions and transmutations. Possible psychological impacts that may arise from early stresses, imprints, and other experiences are discussed. The journeying blastocyst/embryo is sometimes portrayed as a protagonist in the transcript of each human being’s personal past.

Abstract: The implantation journey of the blastocyst/embryo is traced throughout its many biologic/embryologic transitions and transmutations. Possible psychological impacts that may arise from early stresses, imprints, and other experiences are discussed. The journeying blastocyst/embryo is sometimes portrayed as a protagonist in the transcript of each human being’s personal past. Events confronted and subsequent coping or survival styles during the journey are examined in reference to adult behavior patterns and belief systems. The relationship between Myths (as reflections of the human psyche) and the consequences of a human being’s individual implantation journey (as the basis for templates of the human psyche) are explored.
