Much here to be contemplated.. GOD has a barrier between himself and humanity. it is a communication barrier and it is caused by man's choice. Thus the Fall From Eden. My own interpretation is that mankind chose this road in order to accelerate our ultimate progression.
Recall little changed from 200 000 BP through 45,000 BP. Then we rose and went into space in 30,000 years or so, chose to cause the Pleistocene Nonconformity or at least concurred with it, and are now rapidly terraforming the Earth and reenteirng space itself. We have been rather busy.
Concurrently we are now reconnecting our communication channels with GOD. Thus we will now enter Heaven on Earth. It has already been imagined and openly discussed through this blog. This will entail a massive increase in the human lifespan, the restoration of health and a human population exceeding one hundred billion governed through the rule of twelve.
