At this stage, we call the cell undifferentiated. As the cell matures, certain genes get turned “on,” or expressed, and others get turned “off,” or silenced. As this happens, the cell matures into its destiny as an eye cell or a liver cell or a muscle cell. Here’s the really amazing thing: Before a cell has become differentiated, we can move it to another part of the body, and it will assume that part’s function. For example, if we relocate an undifferentiated cell whose DNA is programmed to become an eye to the cheek of a fetus, it will become a part of the cheek—it will mature as a cheek cell!

Dr. Perls was highly critical of this behavior: “We are phobic, we avoid suffering, especially the suffering of frustrations. We are spoiled, and we don’t want to go through the hell gates of suffering: We stay immature, we go on manipulating the world, rather than to suffer the pains of growing up. This is the story” (1973). Perls is saying that the more mature we are, the more we suffer our frustrations and use that tension to become self-supportive.
