According to Castaneda the assemblagepoint is located on the back on or just below the left shoulder blade. It is not mentioned by Castaneda, as far as I can remember, what this is supposed to look like if you were to try and locate this by yourself. Can it really be seen?
I know that some people can see the human aura and the third eye. My wife, in fact, is one of those that can. She could do this from early childhood but were forbidden by her parents to talk about it.
The other day she went on a course to improve her aura reading skills and found that she could actually also see the third eye of people. When she came back from the course I obviously asked her to read my aura and then, out of curiosity I turned my back on her and asked her what she could see.
Before we come to what she actually saw, I must mention that my wife has never read anything about or by Castaneda. In fact I think that at that stage I have never even mentioned Castaneda to her.
Great was my astonishment when she described a dark oval shaped indentation on my left shoulder blade and asked me what I thought it might be. The spot was about 25cm long and 15cm wide.
Since then we have embarked on a study to see if this indentation could be seen on all people. It transpired that the same thing could be seen on every person she looked at. We found that the size, shape and location of this spot (assemblagepoint?) differed slightly from person to person. There does not seem to be a difference between male and female spots, or between that of European and Asian people.
In the case of mentally disturbed people, the position and size of the spot changed dramatically, in fact it is located much lower down on the back and even on the complete opposite side of the persons body. In all Down syndrome people we studied, the spot was located on the right hand side of the body.
We still have to do a lot of research about this phenomenon and would like to know if any one else has observed the same thing. If so we would like to get into contact with them to exchange experiences and correlate findings. I think that this is an important breakthrough that needs to be investigated further.
What, for example, happens to this spot if a person uses LSD or any other hallucinogenic substance, or when a person is subjected to the barbaric practice of electric shocks in mental institutions?
