Did you hear about synchronicity? Jung has developed this concept, meaning 
the relation that exists
when things occur at the same time, to explain how the collective 
unconscious works. In the case
of The Who we see an example of that. The name, as we know, was inspired in 
a tv serie, Dr.Who,
and because it is funny (ya know, The Who. Who? Oh yeah, the band). But when 
Pete Townshend
discovered Indian mysticism, and knew Meher Baba, it changed his life and 
the future of his band
forever - Tommy is clear influenced by eastern mysticism and the meetings 
with the Avatar. But
now, the brand The Who has assumed brand new meaning. If you don't know, 
"God Speaks",
written by Meher Baba, talks about the purpose of Creation. In a spiritual 
saga where God is the
protagonist, all individual biographies are encompassed as a vehicle for His 
quest, passing through
evolution, reincarnation and involution (the spiritual path of return to 
Himself). In an infinite Ocean,
after God asks "WHO am I?" creating the individualized souls (compared to 
drops or bubbles within
the Ocean), those will traverse a multitude of forms, developing new ones 
with greater
consciousness (the many natural beings) until evolve to human form (where 
consciousness is fully
developed but not aware of itself). In the second phase, reincarnation, the 
souls are now playing
themselves out in the broader context of intelligence, emotions, choices and 
interactions with
people. In different lives, becoming male and female, rich and poor, 
vigorous and weak, beautiful
and ugly, exploring the potential of these many opposites, one eventually 
exhausts all possible
human identities and, therefore, has fully learned the entire range of human 
experience. In the
third phase, involution, the soul try to return to the full awareness of the 
Divine Force, which
created him. After seven "planes" (the first three ones within the subtle 
world, the fourth in the
mental world, and the last about true sainthood), impressions and duality 
goes, the drops burst
and again become the Ocean. God finally answers his question of "WHO am I?" 
with the answer "I
am God."
The WHO - not the tv serie, or a joke, but the fundamental question. Or
