Taken from numerous
channelings in J.P.vanHulle’s Wednesday Night group. I have hopefully not
added too much fog to the inevitable channeling inaccuracies.
Michael has frequently commented that our
species ranks as a 3 on the aggressiveness scale. This scale runs from 1, for
the most aggressive, to 9 for the least aggressive. As one might expect, the
largest group of sentient species are in the middle, or a 5. So we are
significantly more aggressive than average.
Aggressiveness is the tendency to take action
when faced with a challenge, heedless of possible consequences. Highly
aggressive species tend to be found in hostile environments; the instinctive
reaction to strike out and subjugate the challenge is needed in this kind of
context. However, once the environmental challenges are conquered, the highly
aggressive species tends to a high level of internal warfare.
In this connection, it’s interesting to
notice that our species base is that of a predator. From an evolutionary
viewpoint, this is relatively easy to verify. Predators tend to have their
eyes set so they have overlapping fields of vision, the better to see and
range on prey species. Prey species, on the other hand, tend to have eyes
widely spaced on their heads to cover as much of a 360-degree field of vision
as possible, the better to see threats approaching and avoid them.
Level 3 is usually the break point. A tool
using species at this level has an even chance of wiping themselves out,
either with a nuclear war or by destroying the environment. In our case, the
nuclear war crisis showed up as the Falklands Island crisis, between Great
Britain and Argentina in 1982.
Michael comments that about 50% of the
parallels did, in fact, destroy themselves in a nuclear war; with this crisis
being one of the most probably trigger points. The psychic reaction convinced
the remainder of the parallels that they did not want to do this, so the
likelihood of nuclear devastation quickly declined after that point.
As I write this, the probability of an all-out nuclear war is very low,
although there is still the possibility of a limited conflagration, especially
by North Korea or in the Pakistan – India confrontation. (Note – this was
written before George Bush’s infamous “Axis of Evil” speech.) The use of
nuclear arms by Israel is much lower: they don’t have anything to hit that
would warrant that level of destruction.
The environmental crisis has still not been
resolved. The root cause of the environmental problems is, of course,
overpopulation. Current UN estimates are that the population will peak at
around 10 billion by 2050. If nothing is done, and food supplies remain
adequate, and current fertility trends continue, the population will decline
Michael has a somewhat different perspective.
They say that the current overpopulation is caused by essences living
multiple, concurrent lifetimes for various reasons. One of these reasons is
early infant souls attempting to catch up as the planet shifts to first level
mature, the other is that there are huge numbers of interesting things going
on as the industrial revolution winds down, male / female dominance shifts to
female dominant, and the planet becomes more mature. Once these changes
stabilize, the desire for multiple, concurrent lifetimes will decline. They
concur that it won’t happen soon, simply because the Infinite Soul is
currently planning to return in the 2030 – 2035 time frame, and that is an
intensely interesting event.
They have also said that our species’
aggressiveness is one of the main reasons why we have not been publicly
contacted by any of the extraterrestrials that maintain observers here. They
consider it to be too hazardous, either to themselves, or to us. They consider
that contacting us would set off a public panic and frenzy that would do no
one any good. There’s also a perfectly understandable reluctance to get too
close to a species that might regard them as the main course at dinner.
