The repetition principle in the
reincarnation process seen after coupling-cell.
Chico had written as early as 1948 that 'the
electrons and protons that form your physical clothing also integrate our
vehicles of manifestation, in other vibratory characteristics'.
(it means them ALSO existing in the astral or mental level, as
we are indeed multi-dimensional entities. Rø-rem./interpretation)
'There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body,' St Paul wrote in
his usual plain language to the Corinthians. ‘Evolution in Two Worlds’
seems to have been written with the aim of stripping the latter of all its
mystical connotations. It is presented as something just as real as the
physical body, with a structure of its own parallel to it. Chico's chapter
on this spiritual body is of special interest.
There may still be controversy as to whether the chicken came before the
egg or vice versa, but Andre' Luiz (one of the many on the other side that
wrote thru him) makes it quite clear that the spirit body came before the
physical one, always has and always will.
'All this richness of modelling on the lines of Creation is raised on the
basis of corpuscles under irradiations from the mind; corpuscles and
irradiations that we cannot define in all their multiplicity and
configuration with our present level of knowledge, although we are no
longer on the physical plane.' It is good to know that even the spirits
are not omniscient:
Andre' Luiz frequently complains of the difficulty of finding words that
we can understand with which to describe the spirit world. 'Death merely
dilates our concepts,' he explains, 'and clarifies our introspection,
illuminating our moral sense. But in no way does it solve the problems,
which the Universe poses at every step with its displays of grandeur.
One intriguing idea that recurs throughout the book, is that of a model
behind all creation of life. “Under the orientation of Superior
Intelligences, the atoms are grouped in immense hives; and under the
spiritually directed pressure of electromagnetic waves, the spatial
inter-atomic areas are reduced in a controlled manner, without loss of
movement, so as to be transformed into condensed nuclear mass from which
the planets are sculpted, and in whose bosom the celestial monads are to
find an adequate cradle for development.' It is literally a case of mind
over matter on a cosmic scale.
The spiritual body, which the author often calls the psychossoma , is
subject to similar control from spirit. 'The body that evolves and
perfects itself through experience of action and reaction on the earth
plane and in the spiritual regions that border it, is susceptible to
numerous alterations based on the adynamia arising from our mental. And
fall into remorse, or the hyperdynamia imposed by the deliria of the
imagination, as these become responsible for numerous dysfunctions of the
soul, born in the state of hypo- or hypertension in the circulatory
movement of the forces that keep its organism subtle. It (the psychossoma)
may be ‘worn out’ in the sphere next to the physical one, to be remade
there through rebirth along the lines of the Pre-existent mental mould, or
it may be restricted in order to be reconstituted once more in the uterine
vessel, for the recapitulation of the teachings and experiences for which
it shows a need, in accordance with the failings of conscience before the
Reincarnation is not quite as simple as some of us may have thought.
Over and over again, the idea of a 'biological organizing model' crops up.
The author insists that it is the spiritual body that moulds or models the
physical one, and the latter that represents the former, just as bricks
are put into place according to the architect's instructions, so the cells
of our bodies are subjected to the discipline of the 'orienting idea' that

He has never married and not even the Brazilian press has managed to link
his name with anybody, which they certainly would have if they had had
half a chance. Chico's life of monastic chastity and dedication to his
work of writing make the views on sex expressed in his books even more
surprising. In one, we are even treated to a close-up description of the
process of fertilising and it is not quite what you find in the medical
'The masculine sexual elements were racing along the natural channels in
search of the ovule, as if prepared beforehand for a race of about three
millimetres a minute. I was surprised to see there were millions of them,
heading forward en masse in an impulsive instinct of sacred competition...'
At this point Andre' understands that his guide Alexandre is actually
going to intervene from the spirit world, as occasionally happens when a
particularly important rebirth is being planned and carried out.
'I realised that Alexandre could see the chromosomic dispositions of all
the masculine principles in motion, after closely observing the future
maternal ovule, presiding over the initial work of determining the sex of
the body to be organised.
(The spiritual being connecting to the physical
'After watching, deeply absorbed, the march of the minuscule competitors
that formed the fecundating substance, he identified the most apt and
fixed his magnetic potential on it, giving me the impression that he was
helping it get ahead of its competitors and be the first to penetrate the
maternal sac. The element he focused gained new energy over the others and
advanced rapidly towards its target The female cell that, in face of the
microscopic spermatic projectile, looked like a small round world of sugar,
amidogen and proteins, awaiting the vitalising ray, underwent laceration
of the cuticle like a small ship being torpedoed; then it went stiff in a
singular manner, closing its tiny pores as if seeking to withdraw them
into its own depths so as to receive the expected visitor face to face,
preventing the entry of any of the other competitors that had lost first
place in the great race.
'Still under Alexandre's magnetic-luminous influx, the victorious element
went on its way after crossing the periphery of the ovule, taking just
over four minutes to reach the nucleus. Both forces, male and female, now
formed one whole, converting themselves as I saw it into a faint focal
point of light.'
Working like a skilled surgeon, Alexandre (his guide) next starts the
process of division of the chromatin in the egg, which Andre' confesses is
a mystery to him, as it was to most people in 1945, when this was written.
And now for the actual moment of reincarnation.
'Next, Alexandre adjusted the reduced form of Segismundo, which was
interpenetrating with the perispintual organism of [the mother] over that
microscopic globe of light impregnated with life, and I saw this latent
life beginning to move.' The initial operation, that of joining the psi
body of the reincarnating Segismundo to that of his future mother, is
over, having taken just fifteen minutes, and Andre' settles down to watch
the process of cell division that is to lead to the formation of the
'The material organism is to supply all the aliment for the basic
organisation of the physical apparatus, while the reduced form of
Segismundo, like a vigorous model, will act like a magnet among iron
filings, giving a consistent form to its future manifestation on the stage
Reincarnation, says Alexandre, means a recommencement of the whole process
of evolution, starting with the amoeba.

'This is why the future body of a man may not be different in its
embryonic development from the formation of a reptile or a bird. What
operates the differentiation of the form is the evolutive value, contained
in the perispiritual mould of the being that adopts the fluids of the
flesh. Thus, upon returning to the denser sphere, which Segismundo is
doing, it must recapitulate all the experiences lived through in the long
drama of our perfection, even if only for a few days or hours, repeaing in
a rapid course the stages it has overcome and the lessons it has learned,
stopping in the position at which it must carry on its apprenticeship.
Soon after the microscopic form of the amoeba, the signs of the aquatic
era will appear in Segismundo's foetal process, and so on through all
periods of transition or stages of progress the creature has already been
through on its incessant march towards perfection...’
Andre' learns that reincarnation is usually an automatic process, with the
spirit simply drawn to a certain parent. When the soul is more advanced,
it chooses its parents with more care. Segismundo has chosen to be reborn
as the son of a man he once murdered, so that they can both forgive each
other and get over a bad stage of evolution.
But before the sexual act that is to lead to Segismundo's rebirth takes
place, the future father has a premonition that he is trying to come back
and at first refuses to accept him. The spirit guides have to work on his
mind for some time before he agrees to welcome the beggar knocking on his
door and forgive him.
Moral considerations apart, the mechanisms of reincarnation are
fascinating enough. Andre' Luiz learns that people can actually help plan
their own future bodies, with the help of genetic engineers at the
‘Reincarnation Planning Department’.
Here, people being reborn for a specific purpose are able to ask for
physical defects that will help them develop qualities they need.
'I have to defend myself against certain temptations of my inferior
nature,' says one, 'and my bad leg will help me, making me think of better
things. It will be an antidote to vanity, a sentinel against the
devastation of selflove.' The physical laws of heredity are fully
respected, Andre' is told over and over again, but now and then 'modifications
can be impressed on matter', such as a bad leg, a weak heart or more
To plan a new human being, the bioengineers make use of the life-size
Visible Man, which fascinates Andre'. His lengthy and detailed description
of it reveals a sound knowledge of anatomy. 'From the frontal to the
annular ligament of the tarsus, threads of light were to be seen,
symbolizing the various regions of the general musculature. Some fibres,
however, were more brilliant, such as those in the orbicular zone of the
eyelids, the triangular zone of the lips, the great pectoral, the
pectineal, and in the thenar and hypothenar prominences as far as the
extensor of the fingers. I was struck by the perfect composition of the
vessels distributed around the coeliac trunk, like small rivers of light
Outstanding was the luminosity of the upper and lower venae cavae, the
external and internal jugulars, the arteries and axillary veins, the upper
mesenteric and splenary arteries, the descendant aorta, the iliac vessels
and the ganglia of the groin.'
Andre' sees the glands as 'small stars of life, like a rutile antenna
attracting light from the Most High', each under the direction of the
pineal, 'a small bluish sun that kept all the others within its field of
magnetic attraction, from the hypophysis to the region of the ovaries,
like our star of life, guaranteeing the cohesion and movement of its great
family of planets and asteroids.
The bioengineers seem to have a way of programming a whole body and then
condensing their design into the genes. Andre' cannot quite figure out how
they do this, as he freely adinits. Nor can he understand the process by
which a spirit is gradually ‘miniaturized’ before being linked to that of
its new mother….
