MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin.    We are speaking to you today under the general request for our perspective on "the state of the planet."   This is a pivotal year for humanity.   There are pivotal years for individuals, for relationships, for families, for communities, for nations, for continents, and humanity.   For a year to be pivotal for humanity, it means that every level of pivoting is happening on a large scale.
