[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2000]
[ShannonB] You told us, long ago, that many of the fragments presently incarnate on this plane were here to witness the Infinite Soul. Now it seems, the IS is not coming in the manner expected. Will all of these millions of incarnates cycle off (or die) and “depopulate” the planet as planned, or have the plans changed?
During a period of time wherein the Infinite Soul may manifest, it is not done “lightly.” Though last year appeared to indicate a shift in changes as to whether the Infinite Soul may manifest at all, your coming year may prove to require a continuation as “planned.” In your Time perspective and sense of change, it may appear to be more whimsical than you would think, but it is not. There are parallels where the manifestation has already occurred. There are some where it will not. The probability of a manifestation in this parallel, as it stands tonight, is approximately 44% within 10 years and 67% within 30.
As for the “depopulation,” we looked at probabilities approximately 10 years ago for what is now your present and saw a great reduction “by now,” but this has not occurred and does not appear to be. This is a strong indication that Essences are still very eager to enter into exchange while Physical with the Infinite Soul.
