Umbilical Mind

Umbilical Mind

The Umbilical Mind is the tertiary mind of the Horan threefold mind. It is the most specialized of the three minds, and it primarily administrated telepathically acquired memories and stimuli. It is the Umbilical that creates the bond between Horan child and mother, which in turn creates the racial bond for which the Hora are so known.

After The Second Death of Horas, children were born with a non-functioning Umbilical. As the generations passed, the functionality of the third mind returned, although many scientists suspect it is not as strong as it was in the past. However, without access to the ancestral memories of the generations that lived prior to the War, it is impossible to confirm or deny this theory.

Psychological techniques that deal with issues and disorders of the Umbilical are, not surprisingly, referred to as Umbilical.

A major known disorder of the Umbilical is called Traumatic Ancestral Disconnection Disorder, or “the second death”. When a Horan female who has suffered from severe psychological trauma becomes pregnant, it is likely that the child will inherent the trauma telepathically, and be born with an Umbilical mind that does not function properly. Children without an Umbilical are commonly disruptive, antisocial, and may be more likely to commit violent crimes. Perhaps more disturbingly, children with untreated TADD are shown to be more likely to develop other Umbilical disorders that may pass on to other generations.
