‎"When a caterpillar enters metamorphosis into a butterfly it enters a chrysalis stage. The caterpillar’s new cells are called "imaginal cells." 

They resonate at a different frequency. They are so totally different from the caterpillar cells that his immune system thinks they are enemies... and the first thing it does is try to attack it. But these new imaginal cells continue to appear, more andmore of them! Pretty soon, the caterpillar's immune system cannot destroy them fast enough. More and more of the imaginal cells survive. And then an amazing thing happens! The little tiny lonely imaginal cells start to clump together, into friendly little groups. They all resonate together at the same frequency, passing information from one to another. 

Then, after a while, another amazing thing happens! The clumps of imaginal cells start to cluster together!... a long string of clumping and clustering imaginal cells, all resonating at the same frequency, all passing information from one to another there inside the chrysalis. Once the imaginal cell clusters reach a tipping point, the whole paradigm changes and the caterpillar realises it is shifting into something more magnificent. It surrenders to the change and becomes a butterfly.

You are the imaginal cells within society. This is natural, conscious evolution."
