In Jovian Human Design, people are encouraged to memorize descriptions because of the language Ra Uru Hu used with every gate and channel. This language is deeply programming you, and therefore, memorizing it can get you trapped in a fixed and rigid belief of how that gate shows up. Ra Uru Hu didn't leave a lot of room to come up with your own answers.

With Zeno's approach, we're looking at gates and channels differently.
 Memorizing isn't important. I would even want to say that memorizing can compromise the whole journey and experience.

Because if you memorize descriptions, you will probably fix your idea of those particular hexagrams or Gene Keys. 
Instead, repeated contemplation is way more beneficial because it helps you keep your mind open to all possibilities. 

Descriptions are just depicting a few possibilities but not all.
 And to really honor the gates' and channels’ energies, you would need to keep your mind open to ALL possibilities.


To really honor your true nature and the whole of who you are, your uniqueness, and that of others, you're not doing anyone a service by sticking with what you already know (or memorized). Keep your mind open to be surprised at all times because not all possibilities have been written down, and that will never happen.

So, the Gene Keys have certain descriptions, but they're not all possibilities. 
I'Ching translations will add more possibilities of how energies can show up, but they're not all possibilities.


It is never complete.

We always have to keep in mind that new possibilities can emerge or show up.
 Because we can truly not contain that or summarize that. Words even fall short of describing everything.


So, see these descriptions just as a way to inspire you, to spark new insights and realizations. Still, with every contemplation, something new can arise that hasn't been described anywhere else because our journeys are truly unique and personal. 

No one can tell us how certain gate energy shows up in our lives. It's truly something we need to discover for ourselves, or we can support others in discovering that for themselves.

Let's honor that journey. Yours and others.
