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.
Humanity is not the last step in the terrestrial creation. Evolution goes on and man will be surpassed. It is up to each one to know whether he wants to participate in the adventure of the new species." This is the year of the cultural revolution in China. A more profound revolution was being accomplished in a body that was waging the one revolution that would change everything for all the little terrestrial bodies: "We are seeking the process so as to have the power to abolish death... It is the mind of the cells that will find the key." This is the perilous transition from a human body animated by the laws of the Mind to a next body animated by a nameless law in the heart of the cell: "A coagulated vibration, denser than air, extremely homogeneous, of a golden luminosity, with a tremendous power of propulsion... Everything is becoming very strange. The body is no longer dependent on physical laws." What was the sensation of the first vertebrate to leave the marine world for another, nameless world in which we breathe today? "For each part of the body, the moment it changes, there is a feeling it's the end... All the supports have gone. I no longer have a path!" And where is the path to the next species? "There have to be some who make it." Sometimes, that other "environment" breaks forth: "An instantaneous marvel... A condition in which time no longer has the same reality. An innumerable present. Another way of living." Eighty years before, a little girl had lived her first revolution of Matter: "When I was told that everything is 'atoms,' it created like a revolution in my head: then nothing is true!" A second revolution of Matter takes place at cellular level: old Matter and its overt laws change into a new world and a new way of being in a body.
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.
