The Embryo in Us – A different perspective on familiar matters
What do you answer to a child’s question Where do I come from?
That we are ‘made’? Then by whom? Do our children come from us or through us?
Curious about an answer to these questions?

Here is a different view of our pre-birth existence. An ’embryosophy’ that makes it clear that current science with only biological explanations does not have the last word when it comes to the meaning of our (embryonic) existence. Are we perhaps beings of mind and body? Did you know that the embryo is not a matter of the past but is still active in us as ‘the embryo in us’? That our body is not a kind of biological machine, but a process, an appearance in time, the body as movement. More than our genes and our brain? And: we are not made!
WE COME THROUGH THE BODY, NOT FROM THE BODY
How is that? Interested in the embryosophy of Jaap van der Wal, MD, anatomist-embryologist?
On November 14, 2023, I was inducted, as it is called, into the Hall of Honor of Prenatal about science. My so-called “Award Talk” culminated in a sort of credo articulating what my purpose and aspirations are with my courses and such about The Embryo in Us. Short and to the point. Here is the link to the expressed text and to the solemn event itself but included in my 15 minute presentation. Much listening and viewing pleasure. The recording itself is not entirely successful, keeping the text handy greatly improves the transmission of my ideas thoughts.
