Lower centers (or the 3 centers)
  • The intellectual center: seat of our thinking activity. This is where our thoughts, representations, concepts, reasoning, logic, and ideas are formed.
  • The emotional center: seat of our emotions, feelings, and desires.
  • The physical center, consisting of:
    • An instinctive center (inner movements): the automatic, innate functioning of our breathing, blood circulation, digestion, and metabolism, as well as our senses and reflexes.
    • A moving center (outer movements): any movement that must be learned (walking, speaking, writing, chewing, etc.)
    • A sex center, which produces the sexual energy necessary for reproduction, the conservation and evolution of the human species, and also permits man to give birth to what is highest in himself.
