ideas, inventions and works of art. Most scientific thinking
today is still in its early, linear phase. With the addition

2,000 individuals. When you feel a yearning for your true
spiritual home, you are remembering your connection to this

to this frequency of consciousness that you ultimately ascend
in spirit before planning your next physical incarnation.

universe on a cosmic scale. Its complete activation brings
the ultimate state of human achievement and enlightenment,
that of cosmic consciousness.
