Question: In the beginning, Carlos Castaneda writes
about the assemblage point as a point on the cocoon, but in other
places — differently...
Answer: Castaneda misunderstood Juan Matus and mistook one particular
case of placement of the assemblage point as the definition of this concept.
The assemblage point is not a point at all, but a region, a zone, in which
the energy of the consciousness is distributed. A consciousness is energy. A lump
of the energy of consciousness can assume various forms. Moving it within the body
and outside of it, giving it different form, shifting from one spatial dimension
into another — this constitutes shifting of the assemblage point.
