The Law of One, Book I, Session 19
Questioner: We are concerned in this communication with the evolution of mind, body, and spirit.
It seems to me that a good place to start would be the transition from the second to the third density, then to investigate in detail the evolution of third-density entities of Earth, paying particular attention to the mechanisms which help or hinder that evolution.
Do all entities make a transition from second to third density, or are there some entities who have never gone through this transition?
Ra: I am Ra. Your question presumes the space/time continuum understandings of the intelligent energy which animates your illusion.
Within the context of this illusion we may say that there are some that do not transfer from one particular density to another, for the continuum is finite.
In the understanding which we have of the universe or creation as one infinite being, its heart beating as alive in its own intelligent energy, it merely is one beat of the heart of this intelligence from creation to creation.
In this context each and every entity of consciousness has/is/will experienced/experiencing/experience each and every density.
Questioner: Let’s take the point at which an individualized entity of second density is ready for transition to third.
Is this second-density being what we would call animal?
Ra: I am Ra. There are three types of second-density entities which become, shall we say, enspirited.
is the animal. This is the most predominant.
is the vegetable, most especially that which you call, sound vibration complex, “tree.”
These entities are capable of giving and receiving enough love to become individualized.
is mineral. Occasionally a certain location/place, as you may call it, becomes energized to individuality through the love it receives and gives in relationship to a third-density entity which is in relationship to it. This is the least common transition.
Questioner: When this transition from second to third density takes place, how does the entity, whether it be animal, [vegetable] tree, or mineral, become enspirited?
Ra: I am Ra. Entities do not become enspirited. They become aware of the intelligent energy within each portion, cell, or atom, as you may call it, of its beingness.
This awareness is that which is awareness of that already given. From the infinite come all densities.
The self-awareness comes from within given the catalyst of certain experiences understanding, as we may call this particular energy, the upward spiraling of the cell or atom or consciousness.
You may then see that there is an inevitable pull toward the, what you may call, eventual realization of self.
Questioner: Then after the transition into the third density, am I correct in assuming—we’ll take Earth as an example—the entities would then look like us?
They would be in human form? Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct, taking your planetary sphere as an example.
Questioner: When the first second-density entities became third-density on this planet, was this with the help of the transfer of beings from Mars, or were there second-density beings who transferred into third density with no outside influence?
Ra: I am Ra. There were some second-density entities which made the graduation into third density with no outside stimulus but only the efficient use of experience.
Others of your planetary second density joined the third-density cycle due to harvesting efforts by the same sort of sending of vibratory aid as those of the Confederation send you now.
This communication was, however, telepathic rather than telepathic/vocal or telepathic/written due to the nature of second-density beings.
Questioner: Who sent the aid to the second-density beings?
Ra: I am Ra. We call ourselves the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator.
This is a simplification in order to ease the difficulty of understanding among your people.
We hesitate to use the term, sound vibration, understanding, but it is closest to our meaning.
Questioner: Then did this second-density to third-density transition take place 75,000 years ago? Approximately?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: Where did the second-density beings get physical vehicles of third-density type to incarnate into?
Ra: I am Ra. There were among those upon this second-density plane those forms which when exposed to third-density vibrations became the third-density, as you would call the sound vibration, human entities.
That is, there was loss of body hair, as you would call it, the clothing of the body to protect it, the changing of the structure of the neck, jaw, and forehead in order to allow the easier vocalization, and the larger cranial development characteristic of third-density needs. This was a normal transfiguration.
Questioner: Over how long a period of time was this transfiguration? It must have been very short.
Ra: I am Ra. The assumption is correct, in our terms at least—within a generation and one-half, as you know these things.
Those who had been harvested of this planet were able to use the newly created physical complex of chemical elements suitable for third-density lessons.
Questioner: Can you tell me how this newly created physical complex was suited to third-density lessons and what those lessons were?
Ra: I am Ra. There is one necessity for third density.
That necessity is self-awareness, or self-consciousness.
In order to be capable of such, this chemical complex of body must be capable of abstract thought.
Thus, the fundamental necessity is the combination of rational and intuitive thinking.
This was transitory in the second-density forms operating largely upon intuition which proved through practice to yield results.
The third-density mind was capable of processing information in such a way as to think abstractly and in what could be termed “useless” ways, in the sense of survival.
This is the primary requisite.
There are other important ingredients:
the necessity for a weaker physical vehicle to encourage the use of the mind, the development of the already present awareness of the social complex.
These also being necessary: the further development of physical dexterity in the sense of the hand, as you call this portion of your body complex.
Questioner: This seems to be a carefully planned or engineered stage of development.
Can you tell me anything of the origin of this plan or its development?
Ra: I am Ra. We go back to previous information.
Consider and remember the discussion of the Logos.
With the primal distortion of free will, each galaxy developed its own Logos.
This Logos has complete free will in determining the paths of intelligent energy which promote the lessons of each of the densities given the conditions of the planetary spheres and the sun bodies.
Questioner: I will make a statement then of my understanding and ask you if I am correct.
There is a, what I would call, physical catalyst operating at all times upon the entities in third density.
I assume this operates approximately the same way in second density. It is a catalyst which acts through what we call pain and emotion.
Is the primary reason for the weakening of the physical body and the elimination of body hair, etc. so that this catalyst would act more strongly upon the mind and therefore create the evolutionary process?
Ra: I am Ra. This is not entirely correct, although closely associated with the distortions of our understanding.
Consider, if you will,
the tree for instance. It is self-sufficient.
Consider, if you will,
the third-density entity. It is self-sufficient only through difficulty and deprivation.
It is difficult to learn alone for there is a built-in handicap, at once the great virtue and the great handicap of third density.
That is the rational/intuitive mind.
Thus, the weakening of the physical vehicle, as you call it, was designed to distort entities towards a predisposition to deal with each other.
Thus, the lessons which approach a knowing of love can be begun.
This catalyst then is shared between peoples as an important part of each self’s development as well as the experiences of the self in solitude and the synthesis of all experience through meditation.
The quickest way to learn is to deal with other-selves.
This is a much greater catalyst than dealing with the self.
Dealing with the self without other-selves is akin to living without what you would call mirrors.
Thus, the self cannot see the fruits of its being-ness. Thus, each may aid each by reflection.
This is also a primary reason for the weakening of the physical vehicle, as you call the physical complex.
Questioner: Then we have second-density beings who have primarily motivation towards self and possibly a little motivation towards service to others with respect to their immediate family going into third density and carrying this bias with them but being in a position now where this bias will slowly be modified to one which is aimed toward a social complex and ultimately towards union with the all.
Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. You are correct.
Questioner: Then the newest third-density beings who have just made the transition from second are still strongly biased towards self-service.
There must be many other mechanisms to create an awareness of the possibility of service to others.
I am wondering, first about the mechanism and I am wondering when the split takes place where the entity is able to continue on the road to service to self that will eventually take him on to fourth density.
I’m assuming that an entity can start, say, in second density with service to self and continue right on through and just stay on what we would call the path of service to self and never be pulled over. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect.
The second-density concept of serving self includes the serving of those associated with tribe or pack. This is not seen in second density as separation of self and other-self.
All is seen as self since in some forms of second-density entities, if the tribe or pack becomes weakened, so does the entity within the tribe or pack.
The new or initial third density has this innocent, shall we say, bias or distortion towards viewing those in the family, the society, as you would call, perhaps, country, as self.
Thus though a distortion not helpful for progress in third density, it is without polarity.
The break becomes apparent when the entity perceives otherselves as other-selves and consciously determines to manipulate other-selves for the benefit of the self.
This is the beginning of the road of which you speak.
Questioner: Then, through free will, some time within the third density experience, the path splits and the entity consciously chooses—or he probably doesn’t consciously choose.
Does the entity consciously choose this path of the initial splitting point?
Ra: I am Ra. We speak in generalities which is dangerous for always inaccurate.
However, we realize you look for the overview; so we will eliminate anomalies and speak of majorities.
The majority of third density beings is far along the chosen path before realization of that path is conscious.
Questioner: Can you tell me what bias creates the momentum towards the chosen path of service to self?
Ra: I am Ra. We can speak only in metaphor.
Some love the light. Some love the darkness.
It is a matter of the unique and infinitely various Creator choosing and playing among its experiences as a child upon a picnic.
Some enjoy the picnic and find the sun beautiful, the food delicious, the games refreshing, and glow with the joy of creation.
Some find the night delicious, their picnic being pain, difficulty, sufferings of others, and the examination of the perversities of nature.
These enjoy a different picnic.
All these experiences are available.
It is the free will of each entity which chooses the form of play, the form of pleasure.
Questioner: I assume that an entity on either path can decide to change paths at any time and possibly retrace steps, the path changing being more difficult the farther along the path the change is made. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect. The further an entity has, what you would call, polarized, the more easily this entity may change polarity, for the more power and awareness the entity will have.
Those truly helpless are those who have not consciously chosen but who repeat patterns without knowledge of the repetition or the meaning of the pattern.
Questioner: I believe we have a very important point here.
It then seems that there is an extreme potential in this polarization the same as there is in electricity.
We have a positive and negative pole.
The more you build the charge on either of these, the more the potential difference and the greater the ability to do work, as we call it in the physical. This would seem to me to be the same analogy that we have in consciousness.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is precisely correct.
Questioner: Then it would seem that there is a relationship between what we perceive as a physical phenomenon, say the electrical phenomenon, and the phenomenon of consciousness in that they, having stemmed from the one Creator, are practically identical but have different actions. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. Again we oversimplify to answer your query.
The physical complex alone is created of many, many energy or electromagnetic fields interacting due to intelligent energy, the mental configurations or distortions of each complex further adding fields of electromagnetic energy and distorting the physical complex patterns of energy, the spiritual aspect serving as a further complexity of fields which is of itself perfect but which can be realized in many distorted and unintegrated ways by the mind and body complexes of energy fields.
Thus, instead of one, shall we say, magnet with one polarity you have in the body/mind/spirit complex one basic polarity expressed in what you would call violet-ray energy, the sum of the energy fields, but which is affected by thought of all kinds generated by the mind complex, by distortions of the body complex, and by the numerous relationships between the microcosm which is the entity and the macrocosm in many forms which you may represent by viewing the stars, as you call them, each with a contributing energy ray which enters the electromagnetic web of the entity due to its individual distortions.
The Law of One, Book I, Session 20
Questioner: To go back a bit, what happened to the second-density entities who were unharvestable when the third density began?
I assume that there were some that did not make it into third density.
Ra: I am Ra. The second density is able to repeat during third density a portion of its cycle.
Questioner: Then the second-density entities who did not get harvested at the beginning of this 75,000 year period, some are still on this planet.
Were any of these second-density entities harvested into the third density within the past 75,000 years?
Ra: I am Ra. This has been increasingly true.
Questioner: Speaking of the rapid change that occurred in the physical vehicle from second to third density: this occurred, you said, in approximately a generation and a half.
Body hair was lost and there were structural changes.
I am aware of the physics of Dewey B. Larson, who states that all is motion or vibration. Am I correct in assuming that the basic vibration that makes up the physical world changes, thus creating a different set of parameters, shall I say, in this short period of time between density changes allowing for the new type of being?
Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: Thank you.
As soon as the third-density started 75,000 years ago and we have incarnate third-density entities, what was the average human life span at that time?
Ra: I am Ra. At the beginning of this particular portion of your space/time continuum the average life span was approximately nine hundred of your years.
Questioner: Did the average life span grow longer or shorter as we progressed into third-density experience?
Ra: I am Ra. There is a particular use for the span of life in this density and, given the harmonious development of the learning/teachings of this density, the life span of the physical complex would remain the same throughout the cycle.
However, your particular planetary sphere developed vibrations by the second major cycle which shortened the life span dramatically.
Questioner: Assuming a major cycle is 25,000 years, at the end of the first major cycle, what was the life span?
Ra: I am Ra. The life span at the end of the first cycle which you call major was approximately seven hundred of your years.
Questioner: Then in 25,000 years we lost two hundred years of life span. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: Can you tell me the reason for this shortening of life span?
Ra: I am Ra. The causes of this shortening are always an ineuphonious or inharmonious relational vibration between otherselves. In the first cycle this was not severe due to the dispersion of peoples, but there was the growing feeling complex/distortion towards separateness from other-selves.
Questioner: I am assuming that at the start of one of these cycles there could have been either a positive polarization that would generally occur over the 25,000 years or a negative polarization.
Is the reason for the negative polarization and the shortening of the life span the influx of entities from Mars who had already polarized somewhat negatively?
Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect.
There was not a strong negative polarization due to this influx.
The lessening of the life span was due primarily to the lack of the building of positive orientation.
When there is no progress those conditions which grant progress are gradually lost. This is one of the difficulties of remaining unpolarized.
The chances, shall we say, of progress become steadily less.
Questioner: The way I understand it, at the beginning of this 75,000 year cycle, then, we had a mixture of entities—those who had graduated from second density on Earth to become third-density and then a group of entities transferred from the planet Mars to continue third density here. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. You must remember that those transferred to this sphere were in the middle of their third density so that this third density was an adaptation rather than a beginning.
Questioner: What percentage of the entities who were here in third density at that time were Martian and what percentage were harvested from Earth’s second density?
Ra: I am Ra.
There were perhaps one-half of the third-density population being entities from the Red Planet, Mars, as you call it.
Perhaps one-quarter from second density of your planetary sphere.
Approximately one-quarter from other sources, other planetary spheres whose entities chose this planetary sphere for third-density work.
Questioner: When they incarnated here did all three of these types mix together in societies or groups or were they separated by groups and society?
Ra: I am Ra. They remained largely unmixed.
Questioner: Then did this unmixing lend to a possibility of warlike energy between groups?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: Did this help to reduce the life span?
Ra: I am Ra. This did reduce the life span, as you call it.
Questioner: Can you tell me why nine hundred years is the optimum life span?
Ra: I am Ra. The mind/body/spirit complex of third density has perhaps one hundred times as intensive a program of catalytic action from which to distill distortions and learn/teachings than any other of the densities.
Thus the learn/teachings are most confusing to the mind/body/spirit complex which is, shall we say, inundated by the ocean of experience.
During the first, shall we say, perhaps
150 to 200 of your years as you measure time,
a mind/body/spirit complex is going through the process of a spiritual childhood. The mind and the body are not enough in a disciplined configuration to lend clarity to the spiritual influxes.
Thus, the remaining time span is given to optimize the understandings which result from experience itself.
Questioner: Then at present it would seem that our current life span is much too short for those who are new to third-density lessons. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Those entities which have, in some way, learned/taught themselves the appropriate distortions for rapid growth can now work within the confines of the shorter life span.
However, the greater preponderance of your entities find themselves in what may be considered a perpetual childhood.
Questioner: Back in the first 25,000 year period, or major cycle, what type of aid was given by the Confederation to the entities who were in this 25,000 year period so that they would have the opportunity to grow?
Ra: I am Ra. The Confederation members which dwell in inner-plane existence within the planetary complex of vibratory densities worked with these entities.
There was also the aid of one of the Confederation which worked with those of Mars in making the transition.
For the most part, the participation was limited, as it was appropriate to allow the full travel of the workings of the confusion mechanism to operate in order for the planetary entities to develop that which they wished in, shall we say, freedom within their own thinking.
It is often the case that a third-density planetary cycle will take place in such a way that there need be no outside, shall we say, or other-self aid in the form of information.
Rather, the entities themselves are able to work themselves towards the appropriate polarizations and goals of third-density learn/teachings.
Questioner: I make the assumption that if maximum efficiency had been achieved in this 25,000 year period the entities would have polarized either toward service to self or toward service to others, one or the other.
This would have made them harvestable at the end of that 25,000 year period in which case they would have had to move to another planet because this one would have been third density for 50,000 more years.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. Let us untangle your assumption which is complex and correct in part.
The original desire is that entities seek and become one.
If entities can do this in a moment, they may go forward in a moment, and, thus, were this to occur in a major cycle, indeed, the third-density planet would be vacated at the end of that cycle.
It is, however, more towards the median or mean, shall we say, of third-density developments throughout the one infinite universe that there be a small harvest after the first cycle;
the remainder having significantly polarized,
the second cycle having a much larger harvest;
the remainder being even more significantly polarized,
the third cycle culminating the process and the harvest being completed.
Questioner: Was the Confederation watching to see and expecting to see a harvest at the end of the 25,000 year period in which a percentage would be harvestable fourth-density positive and a percentage harvestable fourth-density negative?
Ra: I am Ra. That is correct.
You may see our role in the first major cycle as that of the gardener who, knowing the season, is content to wait for the spring.
When the springtime does not occur, the seeds do not sprout; then it is that the gardener must work in the garden.
Questioner: Am I to understand, then, that there was neither a harvest of positive or negative entities at the end of that 25,000 years?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. Those whom you call the Orion group made one attempt to offer information to those of third density during that cycle.
However, the information did not fall upon the ears of any who were concerned to follow this path to polarity.
Questioner: What technique did the Orion group use to give this information?
Ra: I am Ra. The technique used was of two kinds:
one, the thought transfer or what you may call “telepathy”;
Two, the arrangement of certain stones in order to suggest strong influences of power, this being those of statues and of rock formations in your Pacific areas, as you now call them, and to an extent in your Central American regions, as you now understand them.
The Law of One, Book I, Session 21
Questioner: So at the start of this 75,000 year cycle we know that the quarantine was fully set up.
I am assuming then that the Guardians were aware of the infringements on the free will that would occur if they didn’t set this up at that time and therefore did it. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is partially incorrect.
The incorrectness is as follows:
those entities whose third-density experience upon your Red Planet was brought to a close prematurely were aided genetically while being transferred to this third density.
This, although done in a desire to aid, was seen as infringement upon free will.
The light quarantine which consists of the Guardians, or gardeners as you may call them, which would have been in effect was intensified.
