Daniel Pinchbeck

“Anxiety is the great birth-giver,” Gebser writes. A new form of consciousness emerges and realizes itself during a fatal crisis, when the prevailing structure has reached “the end of its expressive and effective possibilities, causing new powers to accumulate which, because they are thwarted, create a ‘narrows’ or constriction. At the culmination point of anxiety these powers liberate themselves, and this liberation is always synonymous with a new mutation.”
