A couple of questions on your posting
Is there anything wrong with thinking that the motive for all this evolution
stuff could simply be to replicate itself in individual creatures with all its
inherent potential capabilities, just to see what happens?
Cass: Are you talking about a desire through time to unfold into its potential perfection? I am looking at this after individualization.
The most developed, i.e. those that reach their goal for that cycle, move forwards, the laggards, remain, until their goal has been achieved. Each zero point would be individual in that its experiences through all kingdoms would be unique to itself. The blade of grass that gets trampled on by a cow's hoof would experience a difference existence than the blade of grass next to it, which was not trampled on. So within the group souls of the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdom each unique experiences would become absorbed into the group soul prior to individualization. When we do individualize we do so with the experiences of the group we have since become individualized through.
>From my old notes"
Having reached the goal for the Moon Chain, they are masters of etheric-physical evolution since the Moon Chain had globes from the Higher Mental down to the etheric-physical, and the humanity of that Chain were skilled in the intelligent moulding of etheric material. Hence, these 'lunar Gods' preside over the PHYSICAL EVOLUTION of the new terrene Chain and evolve all the physical forms of the Chain in the First Round" They lead and represent the human element during the Second and Third Rounds, and finally evolve their 'shadows' or 'chayas' at the beginning of the Fourth Round for those who come behind. These Lunar Gods - the Barhishad or Seventh Creative Hierarch - ar thus the true physical parents of 'ancestors' of man.
I am wondering then if every zero point has a "goal" to reach in terms of the chain that they are on. This also suggests divine intelligence is guiding each zero point.
It's fun to imagine... That, when all those creatures evolve to the same
condition or state of impersonal goodness as the one who dreamed them up in the first place, and all that original flung out spin-energy that constitutes the individual particles and forms of matter have run themselves down to zero in infinite space -- it can go back to sleep in its black hole singularity -- and have just as much time to dream up a new system when it awakens in another Big Bang and another, even greater loop de loop trip through infinite forms and infinite experiences. WOW I can't wait to see and experience that one for myself...
Cass: I was always under the impression that "the one who dreamed them up in the first place" would in Pralaya absorb not only those that have reached a state of impersonal goodness but also those that are,say, still in a state of impersonal discoverers of goodness. The Cosmic Zero Point Consciousness meditates on itself (through each individual zero point it has created)
Also, when I come to think about it (just now after instant meditation on all that) the universe really had no choice -- since it can only be governed by its own inherent nature -- which, being "no-thing" in essence (or Ein Soph as the Kabbalists might say) can never change.
Cass: The Universe made a choice when it exhaled. The choice to exhale. I agree with you that the choice was made to exhale with "free will". Without free will the experiences would have been directed and produced from the cosmic zero point consciousness. It's own awareness, omniscience. With free will, cosmic zero point consciousness, expands and I imagine also includes the negative and positive aspects and opportunities that free will provides. Although this is the 10 million dollar question, does zero point consciousness have the fibonacci principle inherent in itself, or does the "free will" aspect provide for it, an evolution of itself. In other words, does 'god' evolve through us and vice versa?
Wouldn't that mean that even if there were an infinite number of parallel universes (as modern quantum cosmology speculates) they would still all have to be governed by the same laws of nature?
Cass: Don't the parallel universes simply provide a different evolutionary learning experience? I am wondering if the Masters, simply drop their physical bodies, therefore, are able to override the laws of nature. What is interesting to me is how at the Buddhic level we must "know" everything there is to "know". Sadly we would not remember it, or survive, because our brains would not be able to stand the current! I am not scientific enough to understand whether it is important that all dimensions are governed by the same laws of nature, as it was always my understanding that the soul, as atomic energy, and acting through Buddhi can access all planes. Buddhic consciousness is beyond the laws of nature (in terms of physical matter). I imagine that there are laws of spiritual matter and although I don't understand them it has something to do with a natural order of events, whereas here, physical laws of nature, seem to operate through attraction/repulsion/electromagnetism, almost
a state of ordered chaos?
Love it when I receive one of your posts, keep that consciousness of yours ticking over as I am sure that many, many will benefit from your work.
