[Excerpt from TT: 2004-12-12]
[flimflamdamn] What are the chances for a healing of the rift between the Muslim world and the so-called “West”? I include Palestine-Israel and other parts of that region as well. The huge gulf in understanding and perception between us sometimes seems insurmountably huge. I feel like we are a tragically warring family.
[Michael_Entity] The more contact the “Muslim world” has with the “West”, the more likely this rift would be healed. It is in the lack of exposure of one culture with another that divisions remain instilled. The chances are quite high that this rift would heal, then, as the world becomes “smaller”, though the process of healing may be bloody for many.
The “gulf in understanding” can only truly be healed and bridged through education and reincarnation cycles.
There are a multitude of probable futures for your planet from this point where all fragments lose interest in war within 100 years. Once the concepts of privacy, territory, and competition are redefined, your world will find the peace you now conceive as only probable.
The most immediate implementation of Peace would be in the form of a massively devastating impact to life on Earth, while the more tedious, seemingly excruciating path would take approximately 100 years.
But Peace is not impossible and it will happen.
[flimflamdamn] hmm, I guess I’d prefer door #2 then – slow and painful!
[flimflamdamn] I try to educate in my small way, but often feel so overwhelmed by the craziness on all sides.
[Michael_Entity] Begin with healing your own rifts in perceptions and you greatly contribute to the process. It is not only in educating OTHERS that you may bring Peace, but in educating you, and living as an example.
[flimflamdamn] what do you mean by “devastating impact to life on Earth?
[Michael_Entity] We would include nuclear holocaust, meteor impact, and alien invasion under that phrase.
[faldec] How likely would each be?
[flimflamdamn] yeah really
[Michael_Entity] All are possible, but far less probable than most long-term implementations. The reason for the lack of interest in the “devastating” directions is because your world has already experienced those levels of devastation on large community and national levels. It has proven quite ineffective. They are “last resorts”, so to speak.
We state these low probabilities as we see them, not as a means to offer false comfort.
It may be of interest to you that most of what would be the devastating probabilities are played out on a mass level through the medium of film. This allows the secret intrigue to be experienced without the actual interruption of life as you know it.
