[Geraldine] Civilizations don't begin during the immediate period. There is a several hundred year period where population explodes, technology rapidly evolves, and changes happen. Since I've been told about the level of human civilization at the 1 million year mark, were there pivotal changes that caused this level of expansion?
There is always an intervention factor for every wave of civilizations that have come and gone; even the current civilization (or mankind) as a whole is a result of intervention.
Because the human species is a hybrid, there have always come periods of instability in the bodies that make up humans as hosts for sentience, and these usually peak in large cycles, then collapse, and have to be stabilized by intervention, and then rebuilding begins.
The interventions happen in two ways: through caretaker intervention, which might be seen as "aliens," and through the bringing of the Logos through the Infinite Soul manifestations.
When metaphysical instability begins to be profound, the Infinite Soul manifestation occurs. This metaphysical instability would include emotional, intellectual, and "spiritual" instability of the collective bodies at the time, and the probabilities that those bodies would give rise to even further instability without intervention.
When physical instability begins to be profound, such as self-destruction, destruction of great parts of the planet, and degradation of capacities for evolution, then "alien" intervention occurs.
On the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual levels, Intervention happens as necessary and has happened multiple times throughout the history of your sentience.
There are usually 2 kinds of Intervention: "Alien" or caretaker intervention, and Infinite Soul intervention. Both tend to be stabilizing, pivotal, and redirectional forces for the entirety of the Sentience being supported.
These occur in two ways: hidden or presented. The greater the population, the more hidden these interventions tend to be.
Furthermore, each of these are often Insidious and/or Invitational. In other words, slow introductions of change, and usually seeded within relatively small groups.
