Time cannot be stopped, mainly in the cities. The vortex has begun spinning and everybody will be thrown to their exact physical location and in the end to their corresponding dimension.
The planet’s crisis cannot be solved by the system, by those in the economic and political worlds who have created it. We are literally in the hands of God.
Let each one assume its role and its mission for the battlefield now is Time.
Humanity will be given two options:
The politicians allied with the scientists will offer a new reality, increasingly virtual, where age will be reversed for the rich, to be promised immortality, people will be cloned at wish, disease will be eradicated and humans will live in a biotronic world where all their needs will be satisfied. It will be a world where physical money will be discontinued. A world without suffering and adventure.
Access to nature will be progressively fading and the spirit will be banished as an irrelevant idea.
The spiritual solution. A life of simplicity and contentment for all. Devoid of the materialistic and consumerist drive that has ruled us in this last cycle. The earth being uplifted to another stage of cooperation, love and integration into the sentient cosmos.
An inner acceptance of the will of God, as the creator of our spirits.
A life where we as gods will be creators, conscious creators of our reality. Thus ceasing to be like animals and to have to prostitute ourselves for a salary.
The economic crisis has already become a social and political crisis. It will become a spiritual crisis, a systemic crisis of the prevailing paradigm. People will really have to choose between two ways of living.
A new culture is available for mankind, a way out has been trodden. Soon it will be announced.

People are very proud of our three-dimensionality. We laugh about the possible experiences of Flatlanders. Accordingly, some people believe that sculpture is superior to painting , like others believe that the monumental is superior to the miniature. Yet, the truth might be that… one-dimensional is superior to two dimensional and that two-dimensional is better than three-dimensional …
The brain, in its thoughts, feelings and imaginations is two dimensional and it has its reality, it is creating. But the brain wanted to see, to see itself. It wanted more definition, more texture, layers. And then it started projecting, attracting matter to give body to its intentions.
People can imagine that before the Big Bang, before dimensions began, nothing was happening and that one- dimensional now would mean something boring, eventless. Yet there can be 13 dimensions inside a point. This is easy to accept for a scientist. That is why they postulate the need for 11 dimensions in the super string theories. These dimensions are ‘enfolded’ as they say. They really are inside.
Only that people do not know anymore that they have an inside… We don’t even know how to conceive of it.
People live so much outside, in relationships, in movies, in sports, in their jobs, that they are not even aware there is a physical inside to their skin unless they have some pain or illness.
And when you do not know your body you cannot see and feel it as a vehicle. A vehicle made to interact with the third dimensional world. And any scientist can tell you that it is in the brain that we reconstruct and give three-dimensionality to what our eyes see and our senses convey to it.
But the brain craves excitement, novelty. It is not content with dreaming. It does not really believe its thoughts are real. It believes they go with the wind. Yet, if it would start being less rigid and constringent, reality would also begin to flow and be perceived as energy, as the energy it really is.
Quantum Physics tells us that the atoms can behave both as wave and as particle. They are in their natural state flowing as a wave, but when we observe them , they ‘collapse’ as particles. To be configured according to our private devotions, to be shared with our co-believers in this collective hallucination called objective reality.
Harder for people to accept is that we are programs. Not exactly like those of the computers but not very different either. It only takes some time for you to observe yourself and have the humility to recognize it.
I have done that cursory investigation and I have seen how binary I am; a complex but binary program. We are binary because we live in a world of duality. We are ‘inside’ a world of subject-object, framed by time and space, a world where our achievements will always betray our expectations and desires.
We are binary programs also because it could be said that people’s personalities in the end really can be divided in those who see the cup half full or half empty; or people who trust and believe in themselves and the universe and those who don’t; or people who give and those who take. That is how we are programmed. How our brains are wired. How genetics and culture have given us certain lenses to see and react to the world. The baby comes free from bias but soon space and time start creating distortions in its fragile perceptive vehicle.
As a personal note I have to admit that all my life I paid importance to my dreams and to so-called coincidences. This gave me leverage into understanding the connections between inner and outer life, the openness to the possibility that they might be one, that after all there is only one life. Not a dreaming one, a sexual one, a working one, a traveling other, another one that paints or writes.
In the end you are your experience. Whatever happens to you is you, is the story you are narrating, to yourself and to others. They are your characters, they are your audience.
Perhaps in the beginning our creations and projections were simple. But due to the brain’s craving for more and more, because the more it has the more the ego believes in its reality, we inflated our reality with an ever expanding array of emotions , feelings ,objects and possessions.
And with the advent of the screen we can have –virtually- whatever we can think of. Funny that nobody that I know has mentioned that the TV and computer screens are exactly a screen where we can project ourselves. Where we can see ourselves without the effort of self-analysis or the boredom of a physical mirror. Thus men can feel themselves as sport heroes and women and teenagers can vicariously live the emotions of soap operas.
There are now many young men in Taiwan (as well as South Korea and Japan, for this is the advancing area) that live completely inside the virtual world and shun the company of physical girls. This is not a fad , it is a growing trend .Obviously, each society has its peculiarities, but for several reasons that are not necessary to explain now , America seems to be the next candidate for pursuing this dream. The dream that you can live without a physical body. That you can cross the mirror. That is why some years ago some teenagers committed suicide after their character was killed in the game of Dragons and Dungeons.
When in my role of concept-hunter- always trying to discover the umbrella concepts that include many other words and things – I say to people, for instance, that dimensions and generations are the same they get surprised. But then I give an example: when you buy a new computer, a third generation computer, you know that it comes with many new windows, vistas and portals into new spaces; that it flows at higher speeds of connectivity and comprehensiveness; you know that you and the computer have passed into a more evolved dimension, and, certainly, when images will become holographic you will have no more doubts about that.
But this text is just to introduce certain ideas. Hidden behind it waits the proposition that one-dimension resulted in all this we see and that to one-dimension we will have to return if we want to mend all this chaos which we have created.
INVOLUTION AND EVOLUTION
July – August 2009
One of the things that happen when concepts from one branch of knowledge are used and adopted by other fields is that misunderstandings arise which later become very difficult to clarify and correct.
Evolution and Involution are two such concepts. Their meaning varies according to whether they are studied from a materialistic science perspective or from the different perspectives of the various spiritual branches of the knowledge and wisdom tree.
For instance: As it is postulated both by the material sciences and by sociology, the idea that humankind has been evolving continuously since its beginnings till nowadays, is believed by people as a matter of fact. Yet such an approach ignores several issues that seem to contradict it.
The first issue is the well known and somewhat recorded stage of an original paradise and of earlier civilizations like Lemuria and Atlantis. From both that original paradise and from those civilizations there would have been falls, from which humankind did not yet recover.
The second issue is: from which perspective, with which yardsticks do you ascertain evolution? Also, how do you deal with these issues if materialistic science is totally averse to the idea of involution, even though scientists are aware of degeneration, entropy and decay?
Spiritual knowledge in its various forms states that involution preceded evolution, that there were spirits before there were bodies. People nowadays- in their understandable desire to please both lords- pretend to believe in religious teachings, namely about the Fall, yet piously believing everything science tells them about evolution. And truly these aren’t reconcilable…
What if we were to postulate a different beginning for time and space?
Suppose that before the so called Big Bang – which anyways science recognizes may never be validated- suppose that there was just one point, a sort of superstring that started to unravel, to unfold as short waves that progressively became longer and denser?
That more and more space and slower and slower time started creating this entire visible universe? A universe which is more and more expansionary and inflationary?
What if we would call this the shadow universe in relation to a real but invisible one? What if the idea now would be to conjoin them? That is, to gather and collect all these projections into their source?
So, this second issue of reappraising the concepts of evolution and involution can raise at least two questions:
If we were spirits, gods, who in their(our) fall or self sacrifice, have created more and more dense realms in order to fulfill some goal or mission, would this type of involution not indicate that there would be sometime a possible turnaround, an evolution towards the original state of oneness?
Could it be that evolution is not linear? That sometimes history bifurcates and a civilization takes a less desirable path? As could have been the case when Greece chose science over poetry and the individual over the universal? As when the nascent Christian Church embraced and became the State? Could it be that since the 1940’s humanity ceased to evolve and started to involve?
Those ideas could start to make sense if we define evolution as the progressive awakening of the spirit and involution (in our present historical case) as the progressive and excessive ascendant of the mind over the spirit and the intelligent heart.
Could it be that an “evolution” towards bionic bodies, gene modification both in humans, animals and food crops and the gradual replacement of the joys of creativity and human natural interaction by the enticements of the virtual world is really an “involution”?
These are issues that cannot be avoided much longer. Humanity is at a crossroads. Let those who have an open mind and a good-willing heart listen to their inner feelings and promptings. Help is always available to those of us who dare to be humble.
