Indigo Children

There are many people in New Age-type groups who believe in a phenomenon known as "Indigo Children." Basically, the idea is that more and more of the children being born over the last 50 years represent an evolution of a new kind of human. In fact, they say, if your child was born after 1992, she is probably an Indigo. Indigos are creative, easily frustrated, and strong-willed. They are often diagnosed with ADHD. They have unusually large eyes as children. Also, their auras are indigo, rather than blue or violet.

There are many books and websites related to the Indigo Children, ranging from the benign (parents should find supportive environments for their gifted Indigo Children) to the bizarre (the pharmaceutical industry is conspiring with the Illuminati to suppress the evolution of Indigo Children with Ritalin.)

One aspect of this movement that I find interesting is that many (not all) proponents of the Indigo Children theory posit that Indigos are so special because unlike regular humans, who only use 2 strands of DNA, they use all 12 (or 22 or 144, depending on which website you look at). Another theory is that while we only use 20 codons (encoding 20 amino acids), Indigo children have activated an extra 4 codons. Fortunately, an industry has sprung up to allow all of us to use our extra DNA strands and codons for a reasonable price. You can activate more of your DNA strands by phone or in a private session. You can get codon activations for $54 each by e-mail.

Can you check Mster's aura for me?

I for one welcome our new indigo overlords.

Whitley Streiber's gone down this path, too, as an evolution from his earlier alien abduction stories. I think he links indigoity with secret cia programs and alien selection and the like.

Sorry, squishyburrito, "aura cameras" cost about $10,000, and I don't have one yet. But given Mster's age, there's at least a 95% chance that she glows indigo. So next time she sticks her fingers in your nose, you can probably assume it's because of instructions she's receiving from her extra DNA strands.

I played a video game about Indigo Children. It also had a minigame in which you had to mash the L1 and R1 buttons on a Playstation 2 controller in order to fornicate with a pixelated woman. Unfortunately, the puritanical luddites that censors video games took it out of the American release.

Alas... my aura is merely blue. I think I'm gonna go eat some worms.

He who controls the indigo children controls the world. I should procreate more.
