  16. 16. &quot;The caterpillar&apos;s new cells [after it has built its cocoon] are called &apos;imaginal cells.&apos; They resonate at a different frequency. They are so totally different from the caterpillar cells that his immune system [that is the immune system of the worm] thinks they [the new imaginal cells] are enemies... and gobbles them up . . . But these new imaginal cells continue to appear, more and more of them! Pretty soon, the caterpillar&apos;s immune system cannot destroy them fast enough. More and more of the imaginal cells survive. <br />
  17. 17. &quot;And then an amazing thing happens! The little tiny lonely imaginal cells start to clump together, into friendly little groups. They all resonate together at the same frequency, passing information from one to another. Then, after a while, another amazing thing happens! The clumps of imaginal cells start to cluster together!... a long string of clumping and clustering imaginal cells, all resonating at the same frequency, all passing information from one to another there inside the chrysalis.<br />
  18. 18. &quot; . . . . Then at some point, the entire long string of imaginal cells suddenly realizes all together that it is Something. Different from the caterpillar. Something New! Something Wonderful!… and in that realization is the shout of the birth of the butterfly!&quot; <br />
  19. 19. &quot; . . . . Each new butterfly cell can take on a different job. There is something for everyone to do, and everyone is important. And each cell begins to do just that very thing it is most drawn to do. And every other cell encourages it to do just that. A great way to organize a butterfly! And a great way to organize a butterfly movement!&quot;<br />
