Sounds like an interesting book Cath. I didn't know astrology got into those areas. Sounds more like Hindu or Buddhist with the reference to reincarnation. I'd like to learn more about these religions. I admittedly know very little.

So, if it's an evolutionary thing, is the trend toward more of the herd being enlightened as time goes on? Say, the enlightened level becoming 5% and then 10%, etc., or is that an evolution of a person's lifetime?

All of these descriptions of humans...stupid, selfish, enlightened, fallen, whatever are very subjective and will be made through the screens of religion when religion is in play. A Muslim might feel quite enlightened, but a Christian might look at the same individual as quite spiritually stupid.

So, if we look at it from a non-religious perspective, we will have an easier time deciding what is stupid and selfish and what is natural and spiritually enlightened.

Cath, be safe through Floyd! Are you in it's path or on the fringe?

Chris
