The title of this post is also what I chose for the manuscript, and eventually a published book? Thank you to reader(s) who suggested it. Makes for a good topic and questions. Off we go….
Q: Esteemed Committee, the argument is always valid, at any time in human history, that the world as we know it is ending. Change is permanent. What is different now, if anything?
C: The change affects everyone and everything.
Q: Why is this meaningful?
C: It will no longer be possible to look away from something. All humans will look at one another , if humans look at anything at all.
Q: What if we close our eyes?
C: And your ears? How about your mouth, and then eating will be accomplished in what way? You may just pretend you do not see what you do not like, or look away but the thing remains, does it not? At this moment on Earth, remembering that moment and momentum are essentially the same word, slightly varied in English, but in many human languages they are the same word because they are the same thing […ironic sidebar, folks…. Such as "handcuffs" and "wives" which are the same word in Spanish…] at this moment the end of avoidance has arrived. Flight from circumstance, departure from dislike….are coming to a swift close.
Q: This year, the Atlantic Ocean hurricane season and The Shift have produced a double hurricane hit in Louisiana on almost exactly the same track, and just now similar back-to-back hits in Nicaragua. I've been to two other locations (not Louisiana or Nicaragua) which both got hit by hurricanes two weeks after I visited. That was fortunate timing. The two Louisiana hurricanes barely missed me. Coincidences?
C: This is obvious. The Shift is evolving. The USA election controversy is another.
Q: Have the very recent announcements of China virus vaccines [sidebar again, folks….we used to be able to say Spanish flu, swine flu and avian flu but we cannot say China flu?] going to limit the spread of the epidemics?
C: Not so much as hoped or expected, because fear cannot be inoculated. Humans want "off" switches. How many can be made and distributed? The USA has promised to distribute vaccines free, in other words, citizens in general will pay for specific citizens to receive it. Will this be done in other nations?
Q: Why were the vaccines developed in the USA and not elsewhere?
C: Many years of preparation and development of the required research infrastructure.
Q: What else ends on Earth at the moment?
C: Long and detailed have we been about events which humans cannot control, however human reaction and response are well inside human capability and which you all choose will be the answer to this question. Allow us an example; the current USA election, which now two Earth weeks hence, still remains unknown as to outcome.
Back away from the issue for a moment and ask why money can be secured in far more complicated bank accounts and computer systems but not votes? Why is a new system for mailing in a ballot needed, when one already existed? The in-place procedure was more secure; more than sufficient time was available in advance to advise any voter who preferred, to use the established system.
The rush to declare a winner when the voting count remains unfinished two weeks later, should tell you clearly what is happening.
So you see the changes occurring on Earth.
Q: Y'all of course know about what's coming to Earth, and we've been privileged to have your overview and summary. The desperate outcry for specific advice about what to do, will be overwhelming. Forget about the tiny minority of us who know; what about the vast masses who will demand answers, solutions, help, assistance and everything those four words might include. What can y'all tell us about them?
C: Watch, understand and offer your sympathy and assistance where you can. We suggest avoidance of explanations, because humans repeatedly demonstrate a well developed, well trained habit of paying attention to what they want to hear, whether it aligns with circumstances or otherwise. If you attempt to explain what is occurring, most likely you will be met with doubt and skeptical questions. In most cases you will be met with an argument about why you are not correct, or your explanations will be met with polite silence by someone who would be slighted if roles were reversed, thus they will assume the same in you.
Either or another way, explanations will not bring tranquility, because of the insistence upon a solution, an answer and repair, none of which will be possible.
This attitude will be equally as futile as hoping the dead can be revived.
Q: Acceptance is best?
C: Yes, and looking forward.
Q: Thank you, Esteemed Committee.
C: You are all most welcome, please return soon.
