March 1, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We will be working with you in Open Floor format tonight, so begin your queue. We will comment first on the question of ADD, Attention Deficit Disorder, and its variations: ADD is valid, but only in nearly 30% of the cases wherein a diagnosis is reached. In most cases, those who are diagnosed inaccurately are either Artisans, Artisan Cast, Artisan ETs, or with an emphasis of Overleaves on the Expression Axis (especially Artisan-related Overleaves). Another false diagnosis is a result of perceiving the challenge within a fragment as they work to reconcile the difference between the “normal” input levels and the expansion to experience more than what is “natural” for that Role. With that consideration, a Scholar, Warrior or King, for instance, can be diagnosed with ADD if there is an interest in Artisan experiences, Priest Experiences, Server Experiences, or Sage Experiences of processing the life or period of events. This can also be the case if there is heavy imprinting on those Roles with One Input Level from those with more than One Input Level. When a Role determines to expand in the processing of their perceptions, the process for the life changes drastically and this is sometimes deemed unacceptable by the culture/society at the time. For Artisans, 5 inputs is “natural”, but there is a tendency to “cut off” at least two inputs, so as to “fit in”. When this is not done, or the inputs are accessed freely in contrast against accommodation, ADD is then seen in these fragments as well. The 30% or so of valid ADD cases are exclusively Chief Feature-related. ANY fragment who is preoccupied with gauging their life situations to remain “one step ahead” of their Chief Features can be diagnosed accurately as having ADD. The battle to remain in this position is not based on progress, but avoidance. Issues that could ultimately free the fragment from the torment of Chief Feature are avoided through constant distraction of some sort from the moment. In addition, many who have valid attention disorders were thrust into adulthood far before there was a comprehension of the previous Internal Monads. Those who remain within the 3rd and 2nd Internal Monads suffer the most, while the incompletion of the 4th Internal Monad can bring on Adult versions of the same disorder. The Chief Features most vulnerable to this are Self-deprecation and Arrogance. Impatience and Martyrdom is second, while Greed and Self-destruction are last. Stubbornness rarely deals with this. Self-deprecation and Arrogance can be a complete distraction over self-esteem issues having the fragment constantly preoccupied with what others expect, seem to want to see, or might be seeing in the fragment, so the individual remains in constant “hyper-self-consciousness”. This is a clear enough response to this topic for now. We will take your queue now. [Kathie89] Do birthmarks or scars or moles indicate a part of the body that was injured in a past life? What work could the individual do to reduce the effects of harm in past life experiences for the current life? [Michael_Entity] It is valid that many fragments use a birthmark, scar, or mole as a “reminder” of past life injuries, but this is not a constant. Many times they are simply part of the dynamic of the current body. Detail is rarely considered to the extent to prevent “flaws.” There is nothing that is required of a fragment within a current life to prevent harm from a previous life. There may be trauma or Karma carried over, but this is not imposed. ALL interactions from past or future lives are invited in some way. If a fragment were to live its life without any recognition of another life, it is in the astral interval that the past lives would be considered. If conscious recognition of past lives is being brought into the current life, then the consideration would be in how to manage that memory and apply it practically. By that we mean seeking dialogue in dreams, working with an instructor, or simply “riding it out” to see its implications. [nemo999] Are humans now living on other planets? [Michael_Entity] Not that we know of; at least in terms of that sentience that is of Earth. There certainly are other “humans” native to other planets that you would identify with, yes. [MichelePriest] Three different entities have been suggested for me: 1, 3, and 7. While I would love to be a member of all three I understand I only get one. Any consensus which? [Michael_Entity] Through this channel we are not responding to personal information in the group chats, though we will include this response in the transcript. [Response: When a fragment is presented with obviously conflicting information through our channels, we tend to consider this an opportunity for you to discern the ‘truth’ for yourself. We can suggest these insights as a means for you to determine your placement: [Entity One is themed highly with a sense of PURPOSE, in that most from that Entity generate acceptable paths and initiatives for others or at least maintain a path that is apparently wrought with intent and meaning. Those from Entity One rarely question what they are DOING, but just DO IT, even if they are concerned that they might need to be doing something else, otherwise or in the future. They continue to DO what they are doing until they determine otherwise. They have a strong momentum. They create workable paths to accommodate the greatest amount of fragments to move through within a given period of time or to be left for other “generations” as well. [Entity Three is heavily themed with ENTERPRISING, in that most from that Entity are geared toward taking on anything skewed from from the acceptable “norm” and generating something NEW. These fragments, in general, are preoccupied with presenting to others a way of viewing life that is slanted and sometimes, veritably “kaleidoscoped”. Those from Entity Three are usually concerned with the “outcasts” and “eccentrics” of life, creating sanctuaries for small groups to find refuge, maintaining themselves as self-declared outcasts, or standing as an icon for “outcast” behaviour. We do not merely mean those who “feel” like outcasts, but we refer to literal outcasts that usually have very little ability to manage themselves in the current society. Though many old souls may feel they relate to this, it is those from Entity Three that tend to make variations of this work on an obvious level. [Entity Seven is heavily themed with INCULCATION, meaning that those from Entity Seven tend to be repetitive and instructional in their behaviour to a distraction, even to themselves. Highly self-conscious, most from this Entity are preoccupied with the feelings of others and their ability to feel comfortable and capable in the current life. They are usually preoccupied with what is most healing to those they interact with and what will bring the strongest lessons out of the current contexts. Not all from this Entity are particularly in positions where they feel they are “teaching”, but they tend to be looked at as healers and teachers even when they don't “want” to be in that position. People are generally irresistibly drawn to those of Entity Seven, even when the fragment from that Entity is in the negative poles. [Again, many from other Entities can claim they may feel similarly to these themes, but we are speaking from the angle of how you relate to the world, in general and consistently. There may be other factors in the Overleaves that allow you resonate to these descriptions, but this is where your trust in intuition and perception comes in.] [Anne49] I would like to ask, in how many lifetimes has MaryBV known me? [Michael_Entity] One. Mary BV will exist only within this time frame. The fragment who is now Mary has known the fragment who is now Anne 113 lives. [MoonSinger] Hello Michael, I've been wondering about how you do your teaching work. Do you have one “spokesMichael” fragment who speaks through all your channels? Or different fragments “assigned” to each channel? Does that fragment answer all questions, or does another take over if the question is more in line with that one's “specialty?” Or does the whole entity speak “as one” somewhat like the Borg consciousness on StarTrek? [Michael_Entity] We do assign fragments of this entity to different channels. This channel works with a cadence of Warriors and 3 Kings. The immediate assignment is based on camaraderie and past lives shared; a resonance, if you will. From there, a “circle” of Warriors and Kings spanning the Entity are then the “relay source” in accessing the Akashic Records, if needed. Further “within” the entity we have another large “circle” that acts “as one” and is the culmination of all that our Entity “knows” at any given time. Ultimately, we do speak “as one”, but there is still a great deal of awareness and recognition of our individuality, if you will, though nowhere near the depth that you know your own individuality while Physical. Channeling, then, in terms of our Entity, is a three-stage process, not including the factor of the Essence and Personality of that fragment “speaking” for us. [MaryBV] Please expand a bit on the other humans in the galaxy. Are any of these currently monitoring the Earth with intentions to contact us? Any information on these other humans would be of interest. Thank you. [Michael_Entity] Other humans native to their own planes are in the same degree of awareness and exploration as your own. There is only one group of humans that are not planet-bound, but the exploration is of a tourist-like event and highly limited. There is actually film footage that can be found on your planet of this event as they view your planet regularly. The humans that are not planet-bound have not learned how to communicate cross-species or to adapt to varying atmospheres yet, therefore they have always been confined to their tours for now. [MaryBV] As in a Club Med Earth? [Michael_Entity] In terms of a Club Med Earth, no, this would not be valid, though the joke is not lost on us. [Leela] Where are these other humans located? I mean on what planets? [Michael_Entity] We do not have an accurate term for the planetary system in which you might have a reference. Your astronomy is highly limited at this time and what can be “seen” is actually “not there” anymore. We can say these fragments reside near what has been called the “Horsehead Nebula” area. We will complete the session then. Good night.
July 1, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Speaks Online – Open Floor [Note: Here is the transcript from Thursday’s Chat! It was great! I have asked Michael for some clarification on some of it, so there is editing involved. Enjoy! Troy] [M Entity] Hello to everyone. We are here with you. Tonight we will open the floor to any questions or topics of interest to each of you as best we can. Troy has restrictions against personal questions, but if you have a way to present a question that is beneficial for all, we will attempt to respond accordingly. [kittlekats41] This is based on a personal experience, but I am interested in an answer that everyone can relate to: when we moved down to Atlanta we stopped overnight at a hotel. Upon arrival here [to Atlanta] the energy felt off-centered and discordant, which it hadn’t been before. One of the cats was especially vocal and restless. We determined that we had picked up a ‘stray’ energy that attached itself to us at the hotel with a number of others; we were able to clean the space and remove the energy into a better environment for it – an old tree that is grounded. The question is: a) how common is it for this type of experience to occur? b) how can we deal with it when it does? and c) are animals a common barometer to identify when it happens? That is my question:-) [M Entity] We would first respond that we would not describe any energy as “stray” that might attach itself to you randomly. We have rarely seen a case of energetic resonance that was not in some way “invited” or allowed. However, what you refer to as “hotels” and “motels” are full of what might accurately be described as “echo energies”. In other words, the emotional and intellectual imprints from the many fragments passing through a small space (which is assumed by fragments to be a sanctuary in many ways) can become literally “coated” with these “echoes” of energy. In the same way that there are “ghosts” of the dead, there are “ghosts” of the living, as well. “Ghosts” are merely echoes of energy, whether from the living or the dead. With all of that being said, your being affected by an echo is based on a particular resonance you must have had with that “echo”. It appears to us that you were in a space of deeper concern, worry, anticipation, and possibly anxiety, than you were in the previous trip. [kittlekats41] true [M Entity] This would naturally align you with any other fragment's concerns, worries, anticipations, anxiety that had left an imprint in that hotel room or location. This alignment then would naturally amplify your own energy, yet again, and because it then becomes disproportional to your original concerns, etc., it can feel strangely disconcerting and distracting. [kittlekats41] would that echo remain as a presence for a number of weeks afterwards and be detected by the animals? [M Entity] We will respond to your questions as quickly and as orderly as possible. The way you can “deal with this” is to consciously “clear the space” in any environment that has acted as a sanctuary for so many other fragments. Doing so upon settling into your room can greatly increase your experience of peace and temporary ownership of that space. A simple visualization of a colorful light of your choice sweeping through the room and clearing it of all darker or heavier energies is enough. It is not necessary to create an elaborate ritual; just a simple, conscious shifting of the room’s energy to accommodate you is enough. We would suggest avoiding rituals focusing on “protection”, as this simply amplifies a contrast between you and your space and does not effect a peaceful, restful shift. Animals are more sensitive to these echoes than most humans, but they are even more sensitive to the effects of the echoes on their human companions. In other words, your animal companion was responding to your own agitations than to the separate “stray energy” you theorized. The “echo” remains only in the space in which is imprinted, but the effects of that echo upon you can last for weeks. It was Good Work that you created time to transform that effect upon you and to ground yourself again. [BradburySE] I just have a question about the number of inputs for the various roles. It seems to be well known that Artisans have five inputs and Sages three, but how about the other roles? I've never seen this written anywhere. [M Entity] The “solid roles” of King, Warrior, and Scholar have a single input, while the inspirational roles of Priest and Server have 2 inputs. [H2OSprtlvr] We were talking about the 9/11 movie by Michael Moore and it was mentioned that he is a Sage and he had a reincarnation from Josiah Royce. This seems confusing to me that he is a Sage, because all the studying and fact finding is so Scholar. I was wondering where the Scholar might be in his personality, since Sages only want to have fun and are not into fact finding or writing books. [M Entity] First we will say that we have never said, nor have we implied, that Sages “only want to have fun” and that they are not “into fact finding or writing books”. This conclusion is highly simplified and inaccurate of the Sage and of the Scholar. The very Essence of a Sage is to find the Truth and then to disseminate what they have come to believe is true. In that search for the Truth, they will use any means possible. The stereotype of the Sage comes from the fact that in most cases a Sage's method of “fact-finding” and “writing books” simply ends up looking like so much more “fun”. By contrast, the Scholars have been responsible for some of the most influential and “beautiful” music on your planet. This could look contrary to the stereotype of the Scholar, but in fact the Scholar finds the connection between music and math to be one of the most beautiful aspects of life on earth and if that can be translated into music, they will try. We explain this to you to help contribute to your broadening understanding of the Roles of Sage and Scholar. This is not to say that the fragment now known as Michael Moore does not have Scholar influences, because, in fact, he actually does. This Sage is Scholar-Cast, with a Server Essence Twin. [H2OSprtvr] I realize I was stereotyping and I'm grateful for further clarification on the roles. [M Entity] Comparing the lives of Beethoven and Royce/Moore can give you great insight into the differences between how a Sage-Cast Scholar (Beethoven) vs. a Scholar-Cast Sage (Michael Moore) may act within a lifetime. In most cases, a Sage-Cast individual will behave more like the “stereotypical” Sage than a Sage with different Casting. Furthermore, in most instances when a fragment is behaving like one of the Essence “stereotypes”, it is usually an indicator of that person's Casting than of their Role. [BingeBuddie] I know this may seem like a very basic question, but I have had a hard time validating my role in essence. With so many factors to consider such as casting, ET influence, overleaves, and entity position, etc. is there any definitive way to determine your role? I’ve went with channels in the past, but that causes confusion because its difficult to tell what one input is as opposed to many inputs, such as Scholar having one and Artisan having 5. One channel Roles (Scholar, King, and Warrior) can concentrate in the midst of chaos right? So that's kind of what I try to look at. Is that a good indicator? [M Entity] No, we would not suggest using your ability to concentrate as your determining factor. The symptom of concentration vs. distraction in terms of Input is another of the simplifications that can happen when first learning about a part of the teaching. While it is true that an Essence with a single input can usually focus more intently in the midst of chaos, the influence of Personality, Imprinting, and Situations can greatly affect that level of concentration. What we would suggest as part of your validation of your Role in Essence is this: First, study the Roles. It is important to truly comprehend each Role. This means moving beyond the stereotypes that are a part of the initial stage of learning. Next, it is important to understand the vital differences between Essence and Casting. Casting affects how you behave “naturally”, how you express yourself to the world on a DAILY BASIS. Your Essence Role is most obviously comprehended in moments where you feel you SHINE. For instance: A Scholar-Cast Sage: In the daily life of this individual he may appear unkempt, distracted, refined, studious, directed, serious, and maybe even a bit out of synch socially, but this fragment would “shine” as soon as he was able to publicly share what he has gained as experiences in a way that was entertaining to at least a small group. A Sage-Cast Scholar, on the other hand, may be dramatic, socially obnoxious, emotional, depressed, extreme, performing, and chaotic in his daily life, but this fragment would “shine” when he is able to wholly comprehend something that can be finalized as a bit of profound personal knowledge. We do not know of a more appropriate word than “shine”. When you are in Essence, you feel complete, “on”, and you usually feel cohesion between your mundane self and your higher self. When we say “shine”, we do not intend to mean that everyone will see this, but rather that the Personality and Essence open to each other and a sense of lightness and wholeness pervade. We explain all of this to you in the context of an Essence having a different Role than Casting, but of course, there ARE Sage-Cast Sages and Scholar-Cast Scholars, but those fragments usually have little confusion as to their Role. Having explained those basic differences between Casting and Role in Essence, you can then figure out your Role or Casting by first determining if you feel you are more exalted or more ordinal in either of those contexts. In other words, in your DAILY LIFE, are you more one-on-one, but when you “shine”, are you surrounded by people? One-on-One might indicate a more Ordinal position, while being inclined toward groups can be an indication of an Exalted position. Once you have determined how you may behave in either context, you can then determine if you feel you are more compelled to have an inspiring, expressive, or active effect on your environment. This will then give you an indication as to the final role description you might be in your Casting or your Essence. For example, you may notice you are naturally more one-on-one in your daily life, thus indicating that you may be Ordinal-Cast, but when you “shine”, you notice you love to be in a group of people in some way, indicating you may be an Exalted Essence Role. Then you would determine if you are more inclined to be expressive, inspiring, or active in your daily life. If you find you are more concerned with inspiring, you could then safely start trying out the idea that you may be SERVER-CAST. When you “shine”, you may find you are more inclined to be expressive, entertaining, and teaching-oriented, which may indicate a SAGE ESSENCE. This would then be a Server-Cast Sage. We realize this can still be very confusing and difficult to determine, but it is a start. Because the Scholar Role is neutral, it can be the most difficult to determine and we would not be able to convey in this format the depth of questioning that would need to be explored for true validation of the Essence or Casting. One of the most important things you can do while studying our teaching and seeking to validate your Role, Casting, Overleaves, Entity, and Essence Twins, etc. is be open to an evolution of your understanding. You may discover that what you believed was inaccurate channeling is actually profoundly accurate to who you realize you are becoming (as you come into your own identity). Or you may discover that your self-determined Overleaves were highly inaccurate in your initial understanding and you now see that you are someone completely different after all. Never feel as if you must conclude who you are. Our system is designed to help you understand who you are, not complicate your self-perception. If you are thoroughly confused, pick a Role, pick your Overleaves, and begin “living with them”. You will begin to see what does and does not hold validity. [BingeBuddie] But would you have to be past the 4th internal monad to judge completely accurately as to what role you are? (not to ask ANOTHER lengthy question) [M Entity] It does help to have completed the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole for true self-awareness in terms of Essence, Casting, and True Personality. But then, that is the very crux of having a completion of the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole, so it is not a matter of waiting for that rite to pass before seeking valid self-awareness. We are working with Troy in creating two new ways of determining your own basic profiles: a self-test, and a step-by-step process of elimination method. We believe this will help many of our students. We never sought to have any student dependent on our channels, so this is an important evolution to our sharing of the teachings. We believe we have given you at least some “food for thought” until then. [freyaisissuz] That's great, Troy, I will keep it short. I have sensed a connection with J Royce/M Moore. Is he a “reality shifter” or “dream maker” as in cadre 1/entity 3; if another, where? [M Entity] That is a valid observation. This is a fragment some of our channels would call a “wild card” within Cadre One, Entity Three, as well. This fragment is one of the youngest soul ages in that Entity. (3rd Level Mature) If there are no more questions, we will conclude for the evening. If there are more questions, we will take one more. [BradburySE]: A quick one [M Entity] Yes, Shannon, we will conclude with your question. [BradburySE] Who is this other “Dogma Dismantler” besides Michael Moore of whom you spoke in Troy’s energy report? Where will we find him, and is he or she now incarnated? [M Entity] Yes, he is incarnated: a Server Essence Twin of the Sage known as Michael Moore. The Server is a reincarnation of William James now focusing on the funneling of necessary requirements as a means to convey the Sage's “truth”. He may only be peripherally identified in the media. We believe he is one of the “producers” of Michael Moore's films, as well as several of his own projects which reflect some of the profound psychology explored in his previous life as William James. [BradburySE] Thank you, we can figure it out from here most likely! ? [M Entity] This relationship would appear to be more like a Task Companion relationship, but that is not the case. The relationship is taut with disagreements and power struggles, regardless of the powerful results. Good night to all of you. We will conclude here.
August 5, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Speaks – Open Floor [Question] Could Michael comment on some of the channeled material from “The Pathwork” and Duane and Sayana Roman? Are these astral or causal entities? Are these channeled materials helpful? [MEntity] We are familiar with “Orin” and “DaBen” as presented through Duane Packer and Sanaya Roman. “Orin” and “DaBen” are what might be called the “Oversouls” of the two fragments in question. Orin and DaBen are the personifications of the representative, collective knowledge gained by the entities to which Duane and Sanaya belong. Rather than channeling a separate entity, such as our channels do for us, Duane and Sanaya are actually channeling their own Entities. This is NOT in the form that a Transcendental or Infinite Soul would manifest, but simply as an Old Soul would creatively convey the knowledge that “bleeds through” the collective of an entity that is nearly completed in its physical plane cycle. Although a bit confusing to linear thinking, it could even be said that Duane and Sanaya are channeling their “future selves”. Each of you have two types of “Oversoul”. One is the collective identity of the Entity to which you belong, while the other is the collective identity represented by the name of a lifetime in which your Essence felt particularly personified. “Orin” and “DaBen” are variations on the names of the individual Oversouls, but the source of information between Orin and DaBen is the collective Entity to which Sanaya and Duane belong. The channeling is not only valid, it is “helpful”. [Question] There is a journalist by the name of Goeff Dividian who runs the putnampit.com, and shorewoodvillage.com. He seems to be on the same angle of reporting as Michael Moore can you tell us anything about him? Thank You [MEntity] This appears to be another witty and media-savvy Sage who has the ability to root to the underpinnings of a story and present it to the public, even if this means lacing it with entertainment. There is a bit of showmanship and identity distortion involved around this Sage, so we are unclear if he will be able to be taken as seriously as the Sage who is Michael Moore. He is another member of Cadre 1, Entity 3, if you were wondering. [Question] I was wondering about the hands across technique for centering. I was curious about some examples. [MEntity] The “hands across” technique, as some of our channels refer to it, is the process of utilizing the positive pole of the Overleaf that shares an axis with your original Overleaf… as a means to move that original Overleaf out of the negative pole. For instance: An individual who has chosen ACCEPTANCE as a Goal for the lifetime can easily find she begins to feel Ingratiating (the negative pole). Ingratiation comes from forcing a false form of Acceptance over a genuine form of Acceptance, such as saying “yes” when you mean “no”. Ingratiation can also mean forcing others into a position of Acceptance of YOU that is false, such as assuming someone will “get over it” when you offend him or her. The Positive Pole of Acceptance is AGAPE, which is acceptance without attachment, or LOVE. The partner Goal of Acceptance resting on the same Axis is DISCRIMINATION. The Positive Pole of Discrimination is SOPHISTICATION. When someone finds he or she is in the negative pole of Acceptance, he or she can use the “hands across” technique to quickly and powerfully move out of the negative pole. In this case, it would mean “sliding” to Discrimination’s SOPHISTICATION. Sophistication in our system means being able to determine exactly what is in resonance with YOU, what is in harmony with YOU, and learning how to choose that out of all the choices available to you. A person then who would be using Sophistication to move from Ingratiation would mean that person removes the pressure to accept, and allows himself to say NO to that which is not in harmony with him. In other words, the person gains a much more powerful ability to accept those things that are unacceptable, if he first surrounds himself with that which is more acceptable. [Question] how might this technique be applied to the centering, for example Emotional Center? Does the Center/Part change anything or do you treat them individually? [MEntity] This same method can be done with any Overleaves sharing an Axis. The Emotional Center shares an Axis with the Higher Emotional Center; therefore the “hands across” technique would require access to LOVE, the positive pole of the Higher Emotional Center. Sentimentality (the negative pole of the Emotional Center) is simply about ATTACHMENT to symbols, whereas LOVE is complete detachment. In other words, the way to move from your attachment to symbols is through the act of releasing those symbols. Sentimentality simply means being unable to allow an emotional evolution beyond the pictures you have deemed representative of a feeling you have experienced. The Center/Part does not change how you would treat a “hands across” technique in terms of the Primary Centering. However, your Centering is changeable and is only “Primary” and “Secondary” (part) because of your habitual uses. We note this because it may not be effective to use this technique on such a changeable and malleable system, such as the Centers. In other words, to balance your Emotional Center, it is simply a matter of engaging all other Lower Centers at the same time, which is always the goal. When the Emotional Center is imbalanced, it is most likely due to a lack of use of the Moving or Intellectual Centers appropriately. [Question] In the Seth/Jane Roberts material there is mention of a civilization on Earth called Lamania (not Lemuria). Is the information is valid & accurate, and was I, or any of us here, a part of that civilization? Thank you. [MEntity] We are unfamiliar with a civilization that called itself “Lamania”. The Warrior who is known as Jane Roberts may have expressed a name that was familiar to her or the entity known as Seth, but was known differently to others. The name “Lamania” may have represented any of a few unrecorded civilizations alongside or pre-Lemurian. The only major civilization we are aware of pre-Lemurian is that of the sentient race who completed a cycle before humans and “lemurians”. This race was silicon-based and existed during the later cooling stages of your planet. Our final comment would depend on our channel’s exposure to the source of the term so that we may cross-reference this against the records we use. [Question] Can you talk a bit about probabilities as they stand right now for the coming election in the US, and for our democracy and general sociopolitical situation here in the next couple of decades? Everything feels very fluid and somewhat confusing right now, and many of us feel that our country is not really a political democracy at all anymore. [MEntity] Surprisingly, there is a high probability that the fragment known as “Bush” will be re-elected or remain in office with the use of extenuating circumstances beyond the election date. This stands at a 20% probability, which may seem low, but it is not when compared to the other higher probabilities. The fragment known as Kerry stands at approximately a 30% probability of being elected at this point. We have seen this probability continue to rise. As we have mentioned in previous exchanges: what you recognize today as your system of government does not appear to be in place in approximately 25-50 years. The next two decades looks to bring a much-needed overhaul of an outdated system. [Questioner] I guess I’m wondering if we're heading for chaos in the near future. [MEntity] The process appears to be far smoother than one would expect. We do not (and CANNOT) predict your future, but the probabilities of greatest change appear to be leaning more toward a system of government that actually works for the new average Soul Age (Mature). We did not say there would be no “bumps”. We did not say that, nor did we imply it, but we did say it appears to be a smoother transition than one would expect. There will be “bumps”. Some of them may be harrowing and chaotic, but the recovery and benefit appears to be what makes the transitions seem far smoother than one would have expected. The previous and coming elections appear to be what prompts the pivotal community shift that is required as a means to “clean up” your government. [Questioner] I guess many of us feel like we're helpless to influence any of that right now. [MEntity] That feeling you describe is the “last straw” that will eventually pull your community together to make changes. One of the “bumps” you may sense is the 25% probability of a civil war, though it would manifest as more intellectually-focused than physical. That war has already begun on an emotional level. [Questioner] what is an intellectually-focused civil war? [MEntity] Heated Debate may be the most easily-used phrase to describe an intellectual war. [Question] What is the likelihood of an economic great depression in the foreseeable future, and if so, how will this help the shift in consciousness? And will the economic model of the world shift as well? [MEntity] We do not see a high probability of another “great depression” until around the year 2050, but this is dependent on the shift in government during the 40+ years previous to that. What happens as a result of the upcoming election will actually contribute greatly to whether there is another depression in the following decades. Those probabilities are not calculated as being dependent on which of the fragments known as Bush or Kerry is elected, but rather how the United States manages the results of that election. When we say “united states”, we refer to the community known by that name. The probabilities of a “great depression” during the “foreseeable” future do not look high, then. The shift in the economic model of the world, however, appears inevitable as the years pass and the world grows Mature. The use of a common form of currency will most likely be the first implementation.
