Animal soul consciousness
In this stage, the solar plexus center, the sacral center and related centers are highly developed as the main centers of contact. The brain is impressed with impulses coming in through the solar plexus and the sacral. The emotional nature will be of a very low order, meaning there are few real emotions present. The instinct to self-preservation and propagation of the race will be the dominating influence in the life of such a one. During this stage the heart and throat centers will be very slowly activated so that in the latter part of this development the man will show a tendency to feel emotionally and to respond in a dull sort of way to thought.
