Creation and destruction

Using the analogy of software development, in order to create a software package you have to go through a process of development.  Various stages are used to create the package and it is then implemented – the master copy is used to create lots of copies of the software itself.

This is what happens in the spiritual world, the Intelligence Hierarchy are the Developers and what results is the Created.
The implementation is the World soul.

Back to the analogy.  At a certain point older versions of a package and packages that have no more use are withdrawn from circulation by the Developers. 

This is what happens in the spiritual world, the Intelligence Hierarchy delete not only older versions of the software but may also delete the ‘hardware’ too – Destruction or if you prefer extinction.  So the Creator is also a Destroyer.

Creation and destruction go together in cycles, there has to be destruction in order that creation can follow. 

Back to the analogy.  You also need to keep the package up to date by mending bugs, issuing new versions and making sure that reported problems are fixed.  This is done by monitoring the way the software is used.  Error logs and requests for change are used to update the software.

This is what happens with the Creation – it is evolved – this is what evolution is.  The the Intelligence Hierarchy monitors our Perceptions [our logs] to see what is going wrong with our software and hardware and sends us ‘updates every so often – not that we would ever know we were getting updates.  Most of the time it happens in our sleep.

Here the analogy has to end, because construction uses Energy and destruction releases Energy, as such there is Energy recycling

So now we know why there is this continual flow of energy

Because the software is being created and software is being destroyed – continuously

Creation [and destruction]  is thus like a massive project.
