Following on from Caitlyn Jenner and Chelsea Manning, it is now Dr Who who will be transgendering. It is the Transregenderation.
After twelve male actors, actress Jodie Whittaker will now play the role and become the 13th Doctor Who.
It was going to happen at some time. My initial thought turns to the Number 13 and the twelve signs of the Zodiac. Possibly a sign of the turning of the wheel.
And the other thing that struck me like a bolt from the blue, was when the new Doctor showed her face. Because I know her but I don’t. Looks familiar.
I checked some of the images of actress Jodie Whittaker but her pics in previous roles didn’t ring a bell. It seems to apply just to her new Dr Who image. But she doesn’t look anyone I know or have known, so why do I know her? This question has come up a lot for me over the last few years.
Dr Who fits with an idea that has been running around my head for about a year with regards to ‘Archetypes’. The Doctor has at times been portrayed as a Saviour figure – a quasi Jesus.
The vast majority of individuals don’t even get anywhere close to identifying with an archetype at a conscious level and I think it is a sign of ‘spiritual’ progression, if you ever get that far.
But I’ve been sensing its time to transcend the archetypes. Years ago, I knew someone who so closely identified with Jesus that he started to look like him with the beard and other attributes. But he wasn’t Jesus. As far as I can see, the Universe is not so much interested in what would Jesus would do, but what you and I do in the ‘Me’ that we experience.
Below is a video of an interview which discusses ‘transcending archetypes’. Its fairly long but I think it’s interesting.
And Multiples. Wherever I go these days, I am confronted with the concept of ‘Multiplicity’. In different people eg doppelgangers and names, similar life experiences and places and maybe different countries and states layered over each other. Which can then lead into a collective field which crosses Time. At times, it looks like peering into the Heart of the Tardis.
And The Tower again. Watching ‘Never Let Me Go‘ was another dive into strange connections with myself and AN Other, but then would appear to connect with others, and I suspect similar experiences.
And again, the rock band Genesis.
But I’m still not letting anyone get near me with a rusty knife, thank you very much.
