This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book considers the primary literature that had given the initial description of the Indigo Child to the world and to adherents. It explores the issues around studying something that is primarily expressed online, and used Pink's concept of the "ethnographic place" to define boundaries for the object of this research and the aims of the research itself. The book also considers the parental account, with Emma's discussion of her two daughters as an example of the Indigo Child as a biographical narrative presented on behalf of a child. The Indigo Child is a shape full of potential, endlessly reformed to express mastery and identity in the contemporary memetic culture, used again and again to make another "place" to belong, and another way to connect with others "like us".
