Separation -- part 3
In theory the separation process should be the most difficult part of the eschaton for us to manage, but there is no reason that we cannot take it in stride. As we come to understand the larger context for the eschaton, the entire proceeding will come to seem very natural.
There is much that must happen before the separation or reaggregation of the human population gets underway. Foremost will be the gestalt switch to immaterialism. The old concepts of space and time will give way to entirely new ones, that will be much more fluid and multi-dimensional. We will realize that our supposed cosmic isolation was largely self-imposed, unwitting though it may have been. At the same time our personal isolation from humanity as expressed in ego-consciousness will also be giving way to greater understanding of our true solidarity. The future recompartmentalization will seem much less onerous from this larger perspective.
The reaggregation that requires the apparent separation, will be seen as leading to a more organic and more natural state of existence. All our history has been spent on a narrow boundary between two cosmic domains, a very unstable and frankly uncomfortable state of existence. Whatever creature comforts there may be, they are very poor compensation for all the psychic distresses that our living on the edge of the cosmos entails.
Prior to the separation, there will be a much greater geographic mixing of the populations. Only in the more heterogeneous localities, will the separation begin. And then it will be occurring in the new, post-eschaton space and time. Thus will it be that the eschaton itself will be made more incremental and easier for us to take in our varying strides.
The separation, as it progresses, will become multi-dimensional, and will be occurring along only the most subtle of personal distinctions that will have very little to do with present day distinctions. Each new aggregate will be more heterogeneous than our present day communities.
Recall that within the larger cosmic duality of yin and yang, or however we want to designate what we don’t yet understand, there is a definite pluralism, particularly on the yang, or outer, ‘masculine’ aspect of the cosmos. This is where the concept polytheism is useful, or where the myth of the zodiac or planetary influences can be reevaluated. These subtleties will be determining or presiding over the separation and reaggregation of the human population.
And, as a minor observation, keep in mind that individual human biology will also be transforming while the larger processes take place. Birth, death, and metabolic functions will, for most people become something quite different from what we now experience or endure. This is not to say that we will end up playing harps in heaven. Heaven forbid!
