Even "psyche" seems a bit mystical to me. That word can be translated as "soul" and can also have metaphysical overtones when used by Jungians and the like.
Of course, if Misty's teacher had simply said that one's first experience of sexual intercourse tends to be quite important to one, that would have been fair enough, although in my case I barely remember my first time and saw it very much as a rehearsal for things to come, if you'll pardon the expression. I suspect, though, that this imprint on the antakarana is considered far more significant than that. Something to do with past or future incarnations, perhaps?
Fair enough you don't remeber your first time, as I see it's only a shame that you dont, but then again we're different people and I suppose a different sex.
Speaking from a girl's point of view, the mechanical veiw is not so important as its emotional side, it is the emontional side that touches our hearts. I can just imagine you saying.... "ur heart! ur heart is nothing but an organ!" Emotions must have something to do with the 'heart'... yes, it is true, scientifically speaking our feelings are generated in the brain, however what use is a brain if it has no heart?
I'm sure every girl remebers thier first time, as there is a lot of emotional baggage, especially on thier first time.
Katy's teacher was speaking to a group of teenage girls.
And among everything she said, it is absolutely obvious
that sex is absolutely important to one.
I don't think The imrpint on the 'antakarna' has anything to do with the incarnations, it is just a more shorter way of saying: The first person you have sex with will leave in imprint on your heart, it is better if you were married to that person, as you will always have them on your 'heart'.
