Graph showing 'Chaos Gap', in relation to the 'Harmful Energy Effect':
The curve of energy released (by mankind) and the curve of population changes, are plotted over time. The two curves follow the same path until the nuclear advent of 1945: Thereafter, the curves move further and further apart. The gap between the two curves is the chaos gap: It represents the magnitude of biologically harmful energy.
Graph showing 'Creation-Destruction', that is, 'action of the Creative Intelligence':
Curves, of creation of the new universes and destruction of the old, are plotted over time. The curves follow exponential paths after the nuclear advent of 1945, and cross over at the point of instability in 1998.
Graph showing man-released energy and creative intelligence:
As creative intelligence has increased over time, so has the amount of energy, released by man, increased over time. As the latter is directly caused by the former, the two factors are directly correlated: When we draw a graph line for the one, it is also the graph line for the other.
Graph showing the point of instability or cross-over point:
The action of creative intelligence directly reduces the cohesion of mass and releases the energy of mass. As man's collective creative intelligence increases, so the cohesion of Earth-mass decreases. Where the curves intersect, at E, is the point of instability ... the polarity 'crossover' point: This is about 1998. At that point, the present state of unstable equilibrium becomes one of unstable disequilibrium, as the onset of chaos gains dominance.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to the automation effect:
The history of creative intelligence, in the industrial era, has been the history of labour-saving inventions, namely the persistent growth of automation. The result has been an accelerating decline in industrial job opportunities. Automation sloughs off people sequentially: First to go are the unskilled, followed by the semi-skilled and, finally, by skilled tradesmen. The creative intelligence looks after its own: Scientists and computer specialists are the last to go. The automation effect is the major underlying cause of the weakness in the world economy. Since the advent of the nuclear/computer era, the trend to automation has been gathering momentum. Machine-capital inputs have been progressively outstripping labour inputs, as far as the supply function is concerned. When the instability point (1998) is passed, the world economy moves out of control, and the 'Chaos Gap' widens exponentially.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to the government expenditure effect:
As jobs are lost, consumer demand drops ... and as demand drops, more jobs are lost: This is how the multiplier compounds and intensifies the economic downturn. As effective demand falls, sales fall, profits fall, and the government tax-take falls. This reduction in government income occurs when the need for government expenditure is rising ... and when there is an increasing clamour for more unemployment benefits and other social support services. The extent, to which governments are unable to meet public needs, exemplifies the 'Chaos Gap'.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to the inflation effect:
As political pressure mounts for greater public expenditure, outgoings exceed dwindling tax income, and budget deficits worsen. Governments issue more currency and create credit, in order to cover fiscal deficits. Now, however, the additional currency and credit is not backed by additional goods and services: It is inflationary. The consequences of uncontrolled inflation ensue ... rocketing prices and living costs; balance of payments deficits; collapse of currencies, and collapse of governments. The inflationary effects gather speed as the 'Chaos Gap' widens ... as the volume of paper-money and credit outstrips the volume of goods and services.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to income effect:
Economists try for stable full-employment and full production and supply. This is not to be. A full-supply equilibrium is a static concept and is not in the nature of things. Reality is not a matter of static equilibrium or of material stability: Reality involves a dispersal of mass, not a steady-state of mass. Try as they may, economists and politicians will not prevent a reduction of world income: From 1998, it will fall sharply. The graph shows how the needed world income line will move ever further away from the actual world-income line.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to travel effect:
The international scene will become chaotic, as the onset of the final stage gains momentum. Terrorism and brigandage escalate. International travel becomes fraught with risks and will only be undertaken by the foolhardy and those with pressing business to conduct. Top-security airline flights will be featured but, as airport and general security deteriorate, even these fail to guarantee traveller safety. The volume of international passenger traffic decreases rapidly after the 1998 instability point has been passed.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to world trade effect:
As consumer purchasing power falls, effective demand for imports falls. Also, as conditions become chaotic worldwide, the difficulties of conducting international trade become greater and greater. Increasingly, consignments fail to reach their destination and the costs of transporting and insuring goods skyrocket. From the instability point (1998) on, world trade falls away sharply.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to social change effect:
Thousands of industrial plants will stand idle: 'labour-source' urban areas will become depressed centres of unemployment, deprivation and violence. Under these conditions, social standards of behaviour disintegrate. Respect for customs and traditions will be replaced by impatient and rebellious behaviour, particularly in the younger social groups. Degeneration of in-built stability factors is another example of the widening chaos gap. Behaviour becomes ever less patterned ... ever more spontaneous ... ever less predictable ... ever more random.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to the lawlessness effect:
In future, the number of major crimes committed will soar higher, and the number of convictions will fall further away. Governments will lose control: They will be governments in name only. From the instability point (1998), law enforcement will be so inadequate that social justice will become a mockery.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to anarchy effect:
In the absence of law and order, mobsters will increasingly control political voting. The legislatures become an extension of city chaos, as puppet legislators (pawns of mobs and business cartels) fight for contracts, privileges and preferments. The majority-will no longer prevails. A free, democratic vote, along with other human rights, becomes a dream of the past, as the law of the jungle stamps itself upon every aspect of life. Not only legislators, but judges and government officials become puppets of power groups. Oppression becomes rampant, as anarchy flourishes and democracy withers and dies.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to world suffering effect:
Africa, Eastern Europe, the former USSR, the Middle East, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Central America, South America, and many other areas, suffer increasingly from anarchy, deprivation and disease. Epidemics become widespread. At a time when the need for international aid is greatest, funds are not available. Most people become preoccupied with their own survival and don't have resources to spare for foreign relief projects. Medical effectiveness drops sharply.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to the old world rejection effect:
As the old world becomes too grim to confront, people become ever more interested in imaginative entertainment. Imaginative creations will have a powerful effect on the matrices of the new universes. Increasingly, we will accord reality to fictional scenarios. From the year 2000, we will witness the growing phenomenon of old world rejection, with the new ideative worlds gaining ascendancy over the old 'real' world. Increasingly, people will live, mentally, in the new universes. Early in the 21st century, people will, psychologically, be 'packing their bags' in readiness for departure.
Graph showing the chaos gap, in relation to the 'Pandora' effect:
As governments become less effective, their control of dangerous nuclear knowledge decreases. Information, concerning government nuclear weapons research, which was previously tightly controlled, becomes more freely available. So many organisations become involved in nuclear research, that security of information becomes virtually impossible to maintain. New inventions and cost reductions make nuclear weapons much more accessible. The lid of 'Pandora's Box', partly opened by the Manhattan project in 1945, will be completely lifted ... with disastrous effects.

The 416 cohesion-index series is a physical macro-series and careful interpretation is required where social or biological entropy are concerned. In general, a multiplication factor of 10 should be applied when converting from the 416 table to a social entropy table, and a multiplication factor of 5 to a biological entropy table. For example, the 416 table shows a 2% p.a. Decrease of cohesion in 1993: This converts to a 20% p.a. Increase of civil disorder and a 10% increase of ecological deterioration.
The quality of cohesion is absolute: As it decreases finitely and physically, it increases transfinitely and non-physically: Always, total cohesion is unabated. The transition from finite forms to transfinite forms is the metamorphosis ... with the cross-over point at the year 1998. The graph of proposition 401 is apposite.
If ideative activity is tautological (within an absolute which is wholly in each idea), what is its use and purpose? The comparison, of part with part, no doubt leads to greater self-awareness ... but is there perhaps some other purpose to ideative activity?
Ideas are not, of course, gaseous ... but they do have some properties which gases possess. Excitation generates a kind of heat, which causes a kind of ideative expansion. We are using analogous terms here, and the analogy should not be taken too far. Let us say that a universe of ideas is something like a transfinite, living super-gas.
As a gas expands indefinitely in void, software an ideative universe expands indefinitely in void. But an ideative complex has more living characteristics than a gas. An ideative complex reaches out prehensively, like a multi-cell organism.
A title is a privilege granted by a society to one of its members. It may be conditional or unconditional, and it may be transferable or non-transferable. It may apply to land, goods, social status, or to any preferment whatsoever which is within the gift or influence of the grantor society ... and it may refer to entitlements either of legality or custom. The privilege granted applies only within the grantor society, except in so far as it is recognised by some supra-societal authority.
The additional societal rights and liberties conferred, by societal grants, reduce the rights and liberties of non-grantees. Where non-grantees are a majority, the granting of special rights and privileges to an minority constitute a diminution of the freedoms of the majority.
It is noteworthy that the more qualitatively aware a person becomes, the greater access that person has to all quality, including the qualitative aspects of entitlements and privileges which have been granted to or acquired by others. Quality is not measurable or constrainable: It may be freely shared by all who access it by their awareness of it.
To use a market expression, no one can corner the qualities of love, divine grace, inspiration, spirituality, worship, compassion, justice, integrity, nobility, beauty, sublimity, creative intelligence, joy, happiness, and so on. The more qualitative in awareness we become, the less subject we become to the constraints and dictates of society. We ourselves become as free and as rich as the free and rich qualities we feed upon.
The processes of the industrial revolution have been self-feeding as to population ... creating more jobs and more material wealth and supporting greater populations which have in turn generated more economic demand and more jobs and more material wealth.
Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, greater and greater emphasis has been placed upon economic self-interest until, in most countries, it has now been raised to the status of a top priority social end. But there is now some evidence that economic self-interest has peaked as a social obsession.
Greater industrial mechanisation has increasingly alienated industrial labour in western societies and, since the 19401s, automation has accelerated and accentuated this process of alienation. Now, in 1993, western economic activity is becoming stifled by depression of demand resulting from decreasing employment and decreasing total income of the worker group.
The quality of life of the average western person has improved since the beginning of the industrial revolution ... and, from an educational aspect, western societies are more qualitatively aware now than they were in the latter part of the eighteenth century. Humanity generally has clung tenaciously to every qualitative gain it has made. We cannot say, therefore, that industrial materialism has downgraded our race qualitatively.
It may be that the current trend, towards automation and de-industrialisation, implies that our race can best make its future qualitative gains in ways which do not involve such heavy emphasis upon economic self-interest.
The non-materialistic future of our race, and its pioneers, are perhaps to be found not in the mainstream of materialistic economic endeavour but among those who find themselves increasingly alienated from that mainstream.
Transfinite people are to be found in every walk of life ... they are the music-lovers, the readers, the artists, the video and TV viewers, the intellectuals, the spiritual people, and the creative people of all fields. They are the people who are high on love, caring and compassion; they are the courageous ones; the never-say-die ones; the visionaries; the pioneers; the generous, and the selfless. The transfinite people are all those who place a high value on the qualitative side of life.
Most of us are in an intermediate transition state between the finite-material and the transfinite-qualitative state: While we are in a material body, this is naturally so but every year our race is becoming more qualitative.
In prediction science, one seeks to identify, evaluate and assess the role of the human race (as a whole, its groups, and its individuals) in respect of the characteristics, purposes and modus operandi of existence.
In prediction science, one cannot rely on a single clue or upon a single line of reasoning. One must gather all knowledge together and consider it as the best available body of evidence, and then draw the best possible inferences and conclusions from that body of evidence and from the various lines of reasoning which have been, or may be, based upon it.
To know everything about a thing or a state is to disperse it completely. The duration of a thing or state is a function of the level of our interest, which is the level of our curiosity of the unknown, which is the level of our ignorance of the thing or state.
As social entropy increases, the 'order' section of society will decrease, and the 'disorder' section of society will increase ... and the costs of maintaining old standards of law and order will exceed the financial capability of the 'order' section. This will result in a continuing and progressive downgrading of social standards of law and order.
From now until 2020, there will be more chaos and destruction in the world. This chaos and destruction is a designed aspect of the dispersal scenario and, as all actions are optimal, these actions also are optimal, and they cannot be said to be evil but simply necessary. It is we ourselves who are drawing this cohesion and order from the 'bank' ... but it is not lost, for we are keeping this cohesion and order within our own selves and we are benefitting by it. We are absorbing it. We can't both have our order outside of ourselves and eat it too.
A fully self-aware transfinite person will not lose consciousness at all at body-death: The person will be fully conscious the whole time ... and when it sees its body lying there, it will feel no sense of loss ... it will feel itself to be intact throughout the whole episode. It will already have adapted to transfinite life.
The unready have the privilege of revisiting any past period or place and of reincarnating in any body-life of the past. Such as these become wanderers until they get Earth experiences out of their system, so to speak.
In the transfinite magnitude, each being emits its own light: The beings glow by the light of their auras. The transfinite world is a world of auras: The beings sense each other and communicate with each other via their auras.
Transfinitely, there are no time lapses or periods ... for there is no such thing as time: Everything is here-now and instantaneous. Being speaks to being at the spiritual and intuitive-intellect level.
Transfinite beings, per se, have no desire to return to Earth body-life. They enjoy the absence of jostling, grossness, hate, conflict, tension, anxiety, ill-feeling, gravitas, restrictions, hunger and the multiplicity of worldly needs: They have had enough of all that.
Transfinite beings have no physicality whatsoever: They are spiritual-mental beings. They have no diseases or infirmities or other imperfections. They can do anything they want and they can create anything they want. They are loving, caring, warm and compassionate ... and they have absolute freedom ... and the means and power to do anything they wish.
At 2020, the diaspora or seeding is complete. Now that the seeds are sown, emphasis goes on to the raising, growing, flowering ... and the development of new universes. Some of the new universes will involve reproduction and some will not. Each monad of the old universe becomes the seed-nucleus of a new universe.
A noteworthy aspect of attainer retro-incarnation is the genius phenomenon ... where outstanding individuals are born out of phase, as it were, with capabilities far ahead of those of parent-genes and of other members of the same generation. These rare individuals are attainers who have chosen to return to the past, to help humanity. The genius phenomenon is not of accident but of design. People of genius find the way for the simple reason that they have been in the future: They show the path which they have already travelled.
It is characteristic of the Absolute that its expressions are dynamic and ever-changing ... from phase to phase, magnitude to magnitude, variety to variety, and experience to experience. The human metamorphosis is a phase-change.
Those of us who wish to continue with a physical-material life, will be able to do so. Now is the time of hosting ... when we 'shop around' for a host which suits us: There is a host to cater for every monad's needs.
If any of us feel like wandering back through history, we are free to do so ... for we may reincarnate at any time or place in the past. But this calls for a certain kind of courage, and it is a journey of nostalgia ... and it is an essentially lonely trip among younger souls.
When we choose a host, we do so intuitively: We reach out with our vibes to other like-vibes, and there is a joining of valencies. This hosting is a natural, positive and progressive thing to do: It is happening on a huge scale, right now.
When we say that each viewpoint has its own reality, we must add that a viewpoint is the more real when it is enlivened and empowered by a believer's will and faith. Not only perception but also will, faith and belief, are essential ingredients of our personal reality.
Whenever we need help or comfort, all we have to do is to ask our God-father-mother, and the Holy Spirit will come to enhanced presence within us ... and we will be strengthened by grace and power.
