The Channel of Acceptance
17 - 62
A Design of an Organizational Being
The Channel of Acceptance links the Ajna Center to the Throat Center through the Gate of Opinions (17) and the Gate of Details (62). Logic influences humanity’s thinking processes, and shapes the way humanity reaches understanding. Acceptance here means mentally organizing information based on already substantiated detail, and it is an ongoing, internal process.
Background: As the gate of the right eye, Gate 17 visualizes the patterns while Gate 62 translates the and manifests the detail through words. Gate 62 is responsible of the creation language, the means by which we name, organize, evaluate, communicate and give meaning to what we see and experience. Whatever Channel 17-62 can successfully organize into its own internal picture, it can understand; what it can’t integrate into its own perspective in this way, it will not understand. Gate 62 is also one of three gates in the design of mammals that connects to humans, in this case with Gate 17. Such inter-species connections led tot he domestication of animals, which in turn led to the organization of sustainable communities. This particular connection also enhances the training of animals by connecting them to mind, to higher cognition.
Personal: Your mind is constantly busy organizing details into your own mental filing system, always making adjustments to your ‘big picture’ by fitting what others think or say into it. This is how you keep a constant vigil on your internal patterns. All new data has to be logically organized and integrated to fit your perspective. When you say to someone, “I just don't understand you” you’re simply saying, “I haven’t been able to organize my perception of you (or what you are saying or thinking) in a way that fits into my picot of the world.” With constant pressure on your Throat Center to speak, you will find you derive satisfaction and a sense of release by sharing your opinions in great detail, or explaining what you do or do not understand about something. In both instances, it is particularly important to pay attention to your thing and the receptivity of your audience. You have a highly sought-after gift for logically organizing things such as business group, events, projects and other people’s spaces, yet you may not be particularly interested in keeping your won space neat and in order.
Interpersonal: People with the Channel of Acceptance have a built-in foundation for teaching or presenting information to others. They have a gift for effectively translating detailed visual patterns into language, as formulas, theories or hypotheses, so that they can be tested for viability. Waiting to be invited to speak ensures the successful timing, effectiveness and clarity of their sharing, and decreases the possibility of meeting resistance or merely bring others with unasked for trivia. Logic naturally stands its ground. Debate and argumentation, fundamental forms of criticism and friction that are necessary for logic to scrutinize and existing pattern, remain a common source of stress-inducing interactions between people, especially if taken responsibility.
Gate 17: Following - The Gate of Opinion
The ancient law that those who wish to rule must know who to serve
Gate 17 looks for one concept or opinion among many that we can all trust - one that will survive both testing and criticism, and calm our fears about the future. Gate 17 is designed to strict an answer into a concept, a workable pattern or a possible solution in preparation for Gate 62’s substantiating details. Up to this point in the logic process, your mind has taken a doubt about the future, formulated a potential solution, and now feels pressured to express it is an opinion. What it needs next is Gate 62’s ability to translate the concept int language, to support it with facts and details, and present it to the public for their examination and analysis. Your right eye takes in the world at a glance, seeing it as a collection of recognizable visual patterns. If a pattern or an opinion cannot stand up to logic’s scrutiny, it will be or should be rejected. Unfortunately, you cannot always translate your visual image or what you understand about it, into language. Without Gate 62, you will find yourself looking for a name to represent your concepts, for facts to support your opinions, and for an effective means to communicate your suggestions. mental anxiety for you arise out of the fear that no one will understood and value your input.

Gate 62: Preponderance of the Small - The Gate of Details
Caution, patience and detail produce excellence out of limitaiton.
Gate 62 says, “I think.” It is designed to name, concretize, and communicate a visual pattern. It selects and organizes details as facts in order to better understand and explain complex concepts or situations. When connected to Gate 17’s ability to structure the concept, Gate 62’s supportive details make these concepts tangible meaningful and understandable so they can be repeated and tested over time. Understanding is logic’s gift - and yours. When you address complicated situations with clear, appropriate and well-organized details, you opinions increase our understanding of the world. When you wait to be asked to speak, you increase the Collective’s potential receptivity to what you are sharing, and you avoid the embarrassment of compulsively blunting out fact and details that are unwanted, unnecessary and may potentially obscure people’s understanding. The quaintly of your opinion is always dependent on our grasp of the facts, but all facts are not equal. It is helpful to remember that you can have all the details in hand, but without Gate 17 may not necessarily be able to put them into their proper structural context for expression in the moment.
