Separation -- part 1
Perhaps the most difficult task now facing all of us is
to understand and then carryout the separation process that is fundamental
to the eschaton. The working out of this cosmic imperative will the determining
element in the success of the global transformation that is now beginning
to unfold. The proper facilitation of the separation will the ultimate
test of the aquarium, or of whatever group is substituted.
The actual dynamics of the eschaton will necessarily remain
obscure until we become more directly involved. For the most part, we will
all be feeling our way along, with the aquarium exercising only a relative
degree of clairvoyance. It is clear that the mixing pot of history will
finally be overshadowed by a cosmic realignment of the human population.
This realignment will almost certainly not be a reversion to a prehistorical
tribal segregation. That would simply negate the purpose of history. That
would be our most likely failure mode for the eschaton, and it would necessitate
the most drastic and traumatic intervention on the part of the cosmic intelligences.
Instead I see two general types of human culture emerging
from the eschaton, that will evolve into quite different and separate entities,
before reintegrating into a form that would be far removed from anything
we could presently imagine. At that distant point, even the present concept
of time or history would have very little relevance.
Keeping in mind all of the admonitions against reverting
to the prehistorical condition, a better understanding of from whence we
have come will contribute to finding our path into the future. By knowing
our history we will avoid repeating it.
We have to ask ourselves what it is that makes the world
go 'round. We already know that the ultimate answer is love. However, love
cannot be the only thing in the world, there are other forces at work.
There is much force behind history, this is the force
of raw human emotion. This is the sound and the fury. This is the spilling
of blood, this is the friction of reality, where the rubber meets the road.
The final attractor of history is the final cause or teleology of the eschaton,
which finally molds history into a coherent whole.
Each human consciousness is a micropump of cosmic emotion
or energy which feeds into the dynamo of the cosmos, and keeps those energies
recirculating like a heart pumping blood. Knowing this we can reexamine
the cosmic diagrams.
We now have the master gear or master cycle of the cosmos being powered by a set of planetary gears or epicycles, one of which is our human history. The power does not involve the drive shafts as in ordinary mechanics. In this model those axes function more as guiding intelligences, with the motive force coming in the meshing of the gear teeth. That is the maw of history. No?
Once the gods have us chained to this galley ship we call history, one might suppose that they would want to use us as a perpetual motion machine. But that is where the pragmatics of love and free will intervene. Galley slaves may be an historical myth. Slaves, even wage slaves, can provide useful service only under very limited conditions.
Once humanity becomes aware of its servitude, once we awaken to the higher realities, it will be very difficult to keep us down on the farm. The slumber of materialism has kept us in our places, has kept us distracted with all the magic of science and materiality. Just ask the "material girl." But the novelty of modern materialism was bound to wear off one day. And there are logical limits to material progress within a given system of physics. Physics is not transcendental, it has its limits and its barriers challenge our spirits to higher realms.
Once we see the light, we will no longer be useful dunces. It is reasonable to be concerned that we would then be riffed or terminated with prejudice. Are we not just "one trick" ponies? Can we be retrained? This is where immaterialism and eschatology come to the rescue, but there is a price to pay, and that is separation.
There is a further depiction of the cosmology prior to adressing the separation.
