The Little Prince is a Human Being


Within six weeks' time, a deranged individual's 'pet' cobra got loose in my neighborhood (attracting the attentions of a big-city media helicopter, causing a lot of noise and panic), and I happened to run across a first edition English language copy of The Little Prince (c1943), a book I'd been planning to read and about which I knew nothing at all regarding the cobra character in it.
 
I started reading the story a few pages each evening at bedtime (falling asleep quickly), and by the time I finally got around to the deeply profound passages about the yellow snake, I had (earlier that particular day) experienced my own surprise encounter with a very frightened and nervous but friendly Black snake coiled up on the sidewalk next to the fence in front the Romanesque Revival mansion down the street from my place. A pair of crows were harassing it until my approach precipitated their reluctant and protesting retreat.
 
And as I was on my way to the grocery store at the time, I didn't have my camera with me. So, I hope you don't mind taking my word for it. I would never deliberately deceive you.
 
The Little Prince is the Inner Child within the soul of a man. His little planet where he lives is his world, his Self or ego. The volcanoes represent his passions and fiery temperament. The Baobab trees represent evil or destructive forces in his world. His flower, the rose, represents the anima portion of his own psyche. For many real men, their anima is deliberately relocated externally -- in the personage of their 'significant other or others'.
 
The love he had for his anima was tested by the discomfort he felt in her presence. In his confusion, he displayed avoidant behavior by running away from it. After leaving and realizing the separation was permanent, he experienced regret over having misunderstood it.
 
I love the words spoken by the wise fox, when he said, "One only understands the things that one tames...to tame means to establish ties...Words are the source of misunderstandings...It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye...It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important...Men have forgotten this truth...But you must not forget it...You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose..."
 
And I love what the Little Prince said, "There is a flower...I think that she has tamed me..."
 
One of my favorite lines spoken by the author of the book, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: "My friend never explained anything to me. He thought, perhaps, that I was like himself. But...Perhaps I am a little like the grown-ups. I have had to grow old."
 
The yellow cobra snake represents two things: death and Satan. Satan brings death while under-rating its significance. The snake deceived the Little Prince into believing that death was the only answer to his dilemma. Listening to the snake was yet another big mistake for the Little Prince. That part of the story made me weep mournfully.
 
While physical death is an unavoidable destiny for everyone, intentionally hastening death jeopardizes the soul.
 
The sheep symbolically represents Christ, the sacrificial lamb who rids the world of evil while sparing the good. The Little Prince was worried that the sheep would spare nothing, not even the good flower. But Christ is not a real sheep, the carnal kind that mindlessly eats anything it can get ahold of. And in some curious way the narrator represents God, the father, who provided a muzzle for the sheep in order to protect the flower. So the whole natural process of life is divinely governed.
 
"I do not much like to take the tone of a moralist. But the danger of the baobabs is so little understood...Children, I say plainly, watch out for the baobabs!"
 
"It is such a mysterious place, the land of tears...I felt the need of protecting him...his loyalty to a flower...My home was hiding a secret in the depths of its heart...Why are you talking with snakes?...I shall not leave you...I shall not leave you...I shall not leave you..."
 
"We have wakened the well, and it is singing..."
 
"They are asleep...Only the children know what they are looking for...They are lucky..."
 
Matthew 18:3-6 ~ Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."

Death is not the answer to pain and suffering. The true answer to every one of life's riddles, to every conundrum -- is agape love: divine love.

My Family Tree DNA Full Sequence Mitochondrial Analysis Report

 
 
Here is the data given me by Family Tree DNA, which I'm currently comparing with that from James Lick. Both sources have categorized my mtDNA as most closely resembling W1-T119C. However, mine has two missing markers and six extras, so I'm not quite sure but I think it means I'm in-between or belong in my own unique group or clade. However, unless the phylotree gets further updating, with my data included, I have to be content with the present conclusion.

 
 
"There are numerous other W1 lineages without enough results yet to receive a subgroup designation. As is the case with the non-Finnish, W1a's, W1b's, and W1e's, these all seem to be north European maritime lineages, perhaps descended from a basic W1 lineage in the eastern Baltic Sea around 4,000 years ago.

"One branch sharing the 119 mutation in HVR2 spread to territories on the Baltic and North Atlantic, and Bay of Biscay. Ancient DNA results show W+119 was present in Germany 7300 years ago, in burials of the LBK culture. Finds of the same type continue in the later Schöningen, Salzmünde, and Bernburg cultures through 5000 years ago.

"One sharing the 16295 mutation arose around 3,000 years ago and is found today in the Netherlands and the British Isles."

This explains my unusual mutations:
 
"MTDNA Mutations

"The most common mutations are a change in a letter at a location to its complementary letter - A to G, G to A, C to T, or T to C.

"Next most common are insertion of an extra letter. These are represented in your results by a dot, followed by the number of insertions. For example, 315.1C - meaning an extra C was inserted after 315C; or 315.2C - meaning two extra C's were inserted after 315C.

"Deletions can also occur, where a letter in the sequence is missing. These are indicated by a dash, for example 16183-.

"Occasionally the test results show 'heteroplasmy' - meaning the mtdna in your cells shows multiple results for the same position. This can happen because a single cell contains hundreds of thousands of mtdna copies, groups of which may have mutated and have different letters at the same location; and your results are based on the average for many millions of cells, some of which may all contain a certain mutation, while others are unchanged. These ambiguous results are indicated by the letters Y (C or T - example 16093Y); R (A or G - example 16034R); M (A or C - example 16183M); W (A or T - example 16189W); N (G or A or T or C - example 16192N). U, S, M, K, V, H, B, D, and X are also used to indicate other combinations of results for the same location."
 



 
 

James Lick's Full Report for My Full Sequence Mitochondria Results

Mitochondria DNA Haplogroup W1-T119C Confirmed

It had been strongly suggested that my mtDNA haplogroup was W1e, and until I updated myself with more elaborate testing, I couldn't really argue with that assessment. However, I now have confirmation from both Family Tree DNA and James Lick's mtDNA Analysis Tool: I'm definitely W1-T119C. Of course, I suspected as much, because my two matches in the database prior to my upgrade are both the same haplogroup. With the upgrade, I now have five matches (one replacing one of the original two individuals, for some reason). None of them seem very familiar to me, except one has Cranfield (an unusual surname) listed in their family surnames. However, for me Cranfield / Crankfield is a surname exclusive to my paternal lineage. So that doesn't quite add up here.

El Cid's Wilma webpage (Ian Logan, I believe) states: "Ancient DNA results show W+119 was present in Germany 7300 years ago, in burials of the LBK culture. Finds of the same type continue in the later Schöningen, Salzmünde, and Bernburg cultures through 5000 years ago."

James Lick's report was interesting and very thorough as usual:

mthap version 0.19b (2015-05-11); haplogroup data version PhyloTree Build 17 (2016-02-18)

Clearly, it is the 119C mutation on my DNA which distinguishes it from both W and W1. My W1-T119C haplogroup has no more relationship to W1e than to most other W subclades, apparently. It is a direct offshoot from W ---> W1. The 7864T mutation differentiates both W1-T119C and W1 from W. My six extra mutations not ordinarily associated with W1-T119C include at least four markers for X, most likely because my mtDNA is supposed to be Cherokee (according to family history). The Genographic Project originally reported my mitochondria as "X", and I still have the certificate to prove it.
