Type of Spiritual Experience
When you read Biblical stories or myths concerning new configurations that replace old ones, the allegorical way they are presented gives the impression of a sort of catastrophe for the inhabitants – a huge big bang changeover where the old world dissolves and a new one suddenly ‘appears’
But and this is an exceptionally important but, I don’t think any of the myths convey with accuracy what actually happens.
Most of what is being implemented is software.
The downloading of software to existing life forms is invisible, we and our fellow creatures would never notice the change.
Revelations captures in a sense what happens. We are ‘sealed in our foreheads’. As, in effect, is every life form. There is no way we or any other creature would be aware that a completely new configuration was being implemented, our memories would not be affected, what would be happening would be not dissimilar, if I can put it simply, to a woman during the menopause, when huge amounts of new software is down loaded and a lot of no longer needed software is removed. As such we might all get hot flushes [removal of old] and cold sweats [implementation of new] , but we wouldn’t notice significant hardware differences! We may feel a bit different afterwards, but that would be that. Only afterwards would the hardware changes to life forms start to take effect.
A description of the experience
1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads
