Recorded by Satprem, a disciple of the Mother, in the course of numerous personal conversations with her, Mother's Agenda is the complete logbook of her exploration in the cellular consciousness of the human body. It covers 23 years of experiences which parallel some of the most recent theories of modern physics, and are perhaps the key to man's passage to the next species.
This 6,OOO-page work in 13 volumes represents the day-to-day account over 22 years(1951-1973 ) of Mother's exploration into the body consciousness and her discovery of a "cellular mind", capable of restructuring the nature of the body and the laws of the species as drastically as, one day, the first stammerings of a "thinking mind" transformed the nature of the ape. It is a timely document of experimental evolution, involving a revolution in consciousness that alters the laws of the species. Whatever the appearances, we are not at the end of a civilisation but at the end of an evolutionary cycle. Are we going to find the passage to the next species, or perish? As scrupulously as a scientist in his laboratory, Mother goes back to the origin of matter's formation, to the primordial code, and there, 'by chance', stumbles upon the mechanism of death - upon the very power that changes death - and upon a 'new' Energy which curiously parallels the most recent theories on the subatomic nature of Matter. The key to Matter contains the key to death ... as well as the key to the next species.
This is the year of the Cuban missile crisis and the first Sino-Indian conflict. "Could it be the first sign of something really ... big? It seems something has been profoundly disrupted, in the depths," Mother said. Indeed, the whole earth is disrupted. This year Mother emerges into a "third position" in her body. Neither life nor death as we know it.
Another side of the "web" where physical laws no longer apply and which curiously resembles the subatomic world of "black holes": time is changed, space is changed, death is changed. Could this be the material site, in the body, where the laws of the world are overturned - they were only our self-imagined laws - and where evolution opens on an incredible bodily freedom, a third position that will be the position of the next species on earth? "The body is beginning to obey another law. The sense of time is disappearing into a moving immobility... A mass of infinite force, like pure super electricity... A movement of undulating, corporeal waves, as vast as the earth... All the organs are changed; everything follows a different rhythm. Such a tremendous power, and so free! Something different ... it's something different! I don't know if I am living or dead... The nature of my nights is changing, the nature of my days is changing... The physical vibration is becoming porous... No more axis - gone, blown away! It can go forward, backward, or anywhere at all... Ubiquity, or something like that." And then this cry: "Death is an illusion, illness is an illusion! Life and death are one and the same thing! It's just a shift of consciousness. Why, this is fantastic!" And then a simple discovery, in the flesh: "The closer you come to the cell, the more the cell says, 'But I am immortal!'" A third cellular position in which "one becomes incapable of dying because death no longer has a reality."
Has Mother uncovered another reality of Matter this year, at the age of 84? "Right there, just in the background, is a sort of fairy tale... Something in the making that will be exceedingly beautiful, beyond all expression: a beautiful story Sri Aurobindo was trying to bring down onto the earth - and it's sure to come!"
The Mother born in Paris on February 21, 1878, in a very materialistic, well-to-do family, she completed a thorough education in music, painting and higher mathematics. A student of the French painter Gustave Moreau, she knew well the great Impressionist artists of the time. She later became acquainted with Max Théon, an enigmatic character with extraordinary occult powers who, for the first time, gave her a rational explanation of the spontaneous experiences she had had since her childhood. He taught her occultism during two long visits to his estate in Algeria. In 1914, she visited the French colonial city of Pondicherry in India, where she met Sri Aurobindo, who had sought refuge there from the British. She returned permanently to Pondicherry in 1920 via Japan and China. When Sri Aurobindo withdrew to his room in 1926 to work out a new power of evolution in matter, she organized and developed his Ashram, and tried in vain to awaken the disciples to a new consciousness. In 1958, after Sri Aurobindo's departure, she in turn withdrew to her room to grapple with the Problem -- the change in the cells' consciousness: the great Opening. From 1958 to 1973, she slowly uncovered the Great Passage to the next species and a new mode of life in matter, and narrated her extraordinary exploration to Satprem. This is the Agenda.
