At least to me, there has been a pattern going on for as long as we know and possibly beyond
-since, for example, any sort of metal, stone or plastic-equivalent, would be ground up into dust and scattered across continents, with every ice age and its gletchers -meaning, that there could have been cars, trains and weapons from idk 100 000 years ago -but hey would be all gone by now, but lets not go too far off topic.
My thesis is, that its perhaps by design or someone’s intention, that we experience cycles of the rise and fall of civilzations, going through various stages.
3 Climax and
4 Decline and reset.
with the climax fading in and out with the 2nd and 4th stage.
The basic idea is, that you need some level of culture, safety, material wealth and amount of time in order to properly ascend, which is given at the height and right before the end of the civilization.
In the first stage, barely anyone will be of spiritual expertise
-they might have potent bloodlines and verbal traditions, but they will be highly specialized and adapt to their specific needs and niesche. Few people ascend and watch over their blood.
In the second stage, the ruling elites will possess the time and material wealth to persue their studies, rituals and meditation -while 3/4 of the population is busy providing said wealth.
In this stage, the practioneers will already be blessedw ith ages worth of history, culture, and hegellian development of doctrines, so to possibly grasp more abstract and higher concepts, and build greater things than their forefathers did. A small portion of people ascends regularly.
in the 3rd stage, material wealth is wide spread, it is also the time when spirituality is starting
to be challenged by the 4 evils of nihilism, atheism, materialism and hedonism.
Spirituality will increasingly become a choice of whether or not seeks to develop one’s self or not
-but this choice is still rather “easy”, since the religious or spiritual traditions of the 2nd stage are still quite popular. A significant mass of peopel ascends, while a growing number is degenerating.
in the 4th stage, the one of decay -the 4 evils are going rampant.
being spiritual is less of a choice and more of a conviction that will be challenged at every turn, more people are ascending than ever before, simply due to the massive spike in material wealth and scale of population -life, wellbeing, luxuries, food and shelter are being taken for granted.
It seems to me, that these stages occur with the goal of generating a cyclically appearing wave of souls reaching a new level. Spirituality but also fictional writing, stimulating various meta-physical faculties which develop us on a more or less subtle level, paving the way for us to eventually become world-hosts ourselves.
