Families of consciousness

Derived from “The Unknown Reality, Vol. 2, a Seth Book” by Jane Roberts

“These categories do not come first. Your individuality comes first. You have certain characteristics of your own. These place you in a certain position. As you are not a rock or a mineral, but a person, so your individuality places you in a particular family or species of consciousness. This represents your overall viewpoint of reality. At particular periods of history, in your terms, different families may predominate.”
by Seth
