Thoughtful posts, michael. We've been so effectively distracted from our true nature as beings of consciousness in this illusory 'physical', existence we fail to understand how connected we actually are to our creation source and sense of impunity to manipulative fear. Perspective means everything, and Farsight helps.
"Where does everybody go when the number of available body's drops precipitously due to mass die offs?"
We don't actually 'go' anywhere. That particular bias is one of this perceptual state, governed by 'time' in state of limited dimensional 'realization'. Perhaps there are limitless combinations of limited states of being, ..as manifest all around us in observable myriad physical 'life forms' linked unequivocally in energetic flows in various dimensional states.
And, clearly as exercised in creative human enterprise, chips do fall to reveal David, etc, ..or David is smashed by effects of periodical galactic waves, eh?
I'd just like to contribute without elaborating to say that my being has witnessed an interface of unmistakable creative origin that's dominated by infinite intelligence and ultimate compassion. Not a being as we've come to expect in a 'God', but a presence so sublime as to calm any anxiety about what we actually are and what endless capacity there is to creatively express our existence.
We are trapped only by our own fears and our fears exist only through persistent ignorance of what we are in limited human, 'time' governed context. 'Aliens' exist as manifestations of fear that actually have no power over our 'souls'. We empower threat only through stubborn ignorance cultivating all 'traps' here or hereafter.
Axiomatic in Buddhism is the admonition to not 'cling' to anything.
Very good advice.
