Harvest in Law of One terms means the transition from one density to the next density. A leap/process into a higher spiritual reality. Ra said some 40 years ago in the Law of One that the harvest from third to fourth density will happen for earth as a whole somewhere between 100 and 700 years from that time. This means at earliest 60 years from now.
A technological singularity, which is a point in time when an intelligence explosion of artificial intelligence (AI) is reached, has been predicted by Ray Kurzweil to happen in the year 2045. I doubt that a technological singularity will happen, however the accelerating progress of technology will happen and by 2045 AI will be extremely advanced.
One possibility is that the approach towards a technological singularity will act as a catalyst for a spiritual harvest here on earth. Because even without an actual technological singularity our technology will become so advanced that the risk is a materialistic third density future for humanity instead of a spiritual fourth density future.
“The technological singularity—or simply the singularity—is a hypothetical future point in time at which technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unforeseeable changes to human civilization. According to the most popular version of the singularity hypothesis, I.J. Good’s intelligence explosion model, an upgradable intelligent agent will eventually enter a “runaway reaction” of self-improvement cycles, each new and more intelligent generation appearing more and more rapidly, causing an “explosion” in intelligence and resulting in a powerful superintelligence that qualitatively far surpasses all human intelligence.” - Wikipedia
40.8Questioner: Then what will be the time of transition on this planet from third to fourth density?
Ra: I am Ra. This is difficult to estimate due to the uncharacteristic anomalies of this transition. There are at this space/time nexus beings incarnate which have begun fourth-density work. However, the third-density climate of planetary consciousness is retarding the process. At this particular nexus the possibility/probability vortices indicate somewhere between 100 and 700 of your years as transition period. This cannot be accurate due to the volatility of your peoples at this space/time.
I think it was some 100 years ago, Rudolf Steiner said something similar, talking about a web over the earth of mineral spiders (the internet and computers) with enormous wisdom (artificial intelligence):
“And from the earth will well up terrible creations of
beings who in their character stand between the mineral
kingdom and the plant kingdom as automative beings with a
super-natural intellect, an immense intellect. When this
development takes hold, the earth will be covered, as with a
web, a web of terrible spiders, spiders of enormous wisdom,
which however, in their organisation don’t even reach the plant
Yes, I think AI can evolve together with humanity. After all, everything is one reality, including technology. However there might be a danger of materialism becoming too dominating and removes our connection to spirit.
“Steiner provided descriptions regarding the potential future of the earth, foreseeing
the construction of a virtual or artificial double earth referred to as the “eighth sphere” (achte
sphäre)—earth being the “fourth sphere” in the theosophical cosmology. This eighth sphere
would be constructed of the densest forms of matter and ruled over by Ahriman (with the help of
Lucifer) to entrap unwitting souls who succumbed to materialism and spiritless technology and
who were consequently unable to progress spiritually.” - https://escholarship.org/content/qt2059q49x/qt2059q49x_noSplash_20b55504d5dbc68efd28680e8fb689a6.pdf
One risk I see is that people will be attracted to transhumanism with the prospect of making humans live forever by enhancing the physical body through things like age-reversal medicine, biotech and nanotech restoring the biology in the body and enhancing it.
That could easily become a materialistic trap keeping humanity stuck in third density, dependent on technology and science and where spirituality is disconnected. The mistake I believe is to see the material world as the cause, when it’s the original thought Ra talked about in the Law of One which is the cause. The same explanation as in the Bible I believe where it says that the Word has created everything (John 1).
Ra: I am Ra. … To the other side of the Bible, a small amount of cense, or incense, in a virgin censer. To the rear of the book symbolizing One, opened to the Gospel of John , Chapter One, a white candle. 2.6
Then what about the alternative to transhumanism? Should we accept aging and death? Or should we adopt transhumanism while still try to maintain a connection to spirit?
Most spiritual and religious traditions it seems, including esoteric teachings and channeled works such as the Law of One, describe the need for physical aging and death. And many people may want it that way. I myself want to avoid transhumanism (at least in the materialistic third density sense) and at the same time I want to achieve immortality within this lifetime!
Ra talked about people with dual activated third and fourth density bodies existing on earth today. I guess they too still age and die as usual. If they would evolve more potentially they could make their fourth density body take over more and more and achieve longevity that way. Personally I believe that the harvest for individuals from third to fourth density is possible today within our lifetimes.
Also notice that “death” when interpreted esoterically, can refer to spiritual transformation instead of physical death. For example Jesus saying that we must lose our life in order to find our life in Christ, or Ra saying that we must go through death. Ra often makes tricky statements, so “death” may not necessarily only mean physical death.
63.20Questioner: OK. Now as this transition continues into fourth-density activation, in order to inhabit this fourth-density sphere it will be necessary for all third-density physical bodies to go through the process which we refer to as death. Is this correct?
Human losing connection to their spirit? while at the same time, CPUs gaining spirit from human?
I personally don’t think so, what could potentially happened when they ‘embed a cpu’ into human is that the ‘mind will become noisier’. The spirit will not be ‘lost’ it’s already ‘there’.
As discussed above, human mind (even without the CPUs) is already operating like a ‘loop’ in computer code / AI. Thus, the reason why meditation is a practice of ‘silencing the mind’, actually more of not paying too much attention / identification towards the thoughts that appeared in the mind, in order to shift the attention more towards the ‘spirit’.
My guess is that technology if it comes to dominate together with becoming stuck in materialism will keep the veil in place, preventing us from being harvestable into fourth density. Yes, spirit is always present but if it remains veiled it’s like being in a video game without realizing that a larger reality exists.
Technology may evolve together with humanity into fourth density and higher, that I think is fine. It’s the materialistic third density version of transhumanism I’m skeptical about. I’m a fan of Ray Kurzweil but I disagree with his view about how the human body will be replaced by technology.
I actually think the opposite is very likely to happen, when technology becomes very advanced, the spiritual development will slow down or be halted - as described in many Japanese anime movies/TVs.
In addition, given the current political/cultural situation, I think it’s very likely western civilization (Christian based) will fall, probably within next 30-50 years, in both Europe and the US and savages and dictators will rule most of the world at that time.
In the Law of One harvest means going from one density to the next higher density. What does spiritual harvest mean in other teachings?
I found this in the Book of Revelation:
"I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.
Another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the fire, came from the altar and called in a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, “Take your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth’s vine, because its grapes are ripe.” The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia." - Revelation 14:14-20
That sounds pretty severe, haha. My esoteric interpretation however is that it describes a peaceful process where the people (grapes) that are harvested have their kundalini fully awakened (blood flowing out of the press).
What does “God’s wrath” mean? That too sounds nasty. One idea that came to me now is that it means the nastiness of third density, not wrath against the people directly. The “old order of things” shall pass away as it says in Revelation 21.
“Uttarayana is for enlightenment. This is the period of receptivity, of grace and enlightenment, of attainment of the ultimate. This is the time to harvest, and it is also the reason agricultural harvests begin during this period. Pongal is the harvest festival. So it is not only the time of harvesting food grains, but also the time to harvest human potential.” - The Significance of Uttarayana
“Race toward forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden whose width is like the width of the heavens and earth, prepared for those who believed in Allah and His messengers. That is the bounty of Allah, which He gives to whom He wills, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty.” - Surah Al-Hadid (57:21)
What is it that is harvested in a spiritual harvest? My interpretation is that it’s the result, the “fruit” of our personal individual development and of our human civilization here on earth that is harvested.
The fruits even include technology! Not that our technology is particularly advanced compared to advanced civilizations. The real value is the uniqueness of our technology, our cultures, economy, inventions, art, literature, spirituality, science and so on. And for the human being it’s his or her unique individuality that is valuable together with the achievement of reaching upper third density.
Since as off now we are all talking here being hosted by our planet, I am more interested into
how is AI subjected to our Logos and bound to the fact that Earth is already in fourth density. So to me, AI is still really subjected to those.
I do see how AI may be misused by the possiibility of third density succumbing to, as coopers expresses, 'savages and dictators ’
But to me AI stays a tool, just continuing to swallowing and digesting innumerable data, just as the Internet can be used in both polarizations.
Though it’s a fun idea to imagine AI getting some sort of spiritualization due to some sort of human devotion, lol
just my little feeling
Thank you Quid, by the way for the focus on AI by Quo.
There may be clues to be found in fiction such as the Matrix movies. In the first Matrix movie Neo isn’t freed, he is harvested.
When Neo wakes up in his pod and lifts the “veil” he sees a vast number of other similar pods. That represents ego consciousness and third density. The tone of the movie is green representing a view from the green-ray and fourth density. What Neo witnesses - how humans are trapped in isolated pods - is how a fourth density service-to-others social memory complex sees our way of life/illusion in our third density separation consciousness.
In this example the AI acts as a harvester and Zion as the “midwife” for Neo being born again.
