Information is based down to us genetically from the countless generations who came before us. For thousands of years, humans have made other than conscious connections to symbols and colors. Today we know that, just like the memories of our grandmothers, this knowledge of symbols and color is part of what we know. We know it on an unconscious level but do not know it consciously. MARI® is accurate because this unconscious knowing informs our intuitive choices of symbol and color. MARI® is a whole-brain instrument that includes both conscious and unconscious elements of our whole psyche.
