At the receiving end of a giant telescope, a man of science – an astronomer – watches a large scope of the universe in search of phenomena and other events that he must note down with exact Earth’s time for ulterior study by colleagues using special programmes in an attempt to determine likely causes and effects of the phenomena, in most cases unsuccessfully. He suddenly detects an explosion occurred at several light years from his emplacement: his immediate guess is that a star has exploded, but it could as well be a planet, a planet like ours. Immediately he makes an entry in his note pad for development later on.

Having done this he notices a tremor under his feet growing in intensity until it reaches catastrophic effects. A earthquake of the highest magnitude has occurred, allegedly because tectonic plates under the surface of the planet have been displaced.

But, let us imagine that on top of the problems we are experiencing due to the enlargement of the holes in the ozone layer giving way to  unopposed sun rays which heat the planet to temperatures becoming more and more unbearable, temperatures that dilate firstly the surface of the Earth and  then keep on dilating the following layers until vent is given to the unknown forces contained in the core; fire from the inner part of the planet will add to the uncontrolled heat being received from the sun, the expansion of the planet exceeding the limits of resistance and causing an immense explosion that will terminate with all kinds of life: human, animal or vegetable, everything; as I say let us add to the problem that a nuclear war broke out, with thousands of intercontinetal ballistic missiles soaring the skies to and fro, deteriorating more rapidly the conditions that have permitted the earth to live so far. The acceleration of the destruction of the ozone layer would be immediate, to me there is not the slightest doubt, and I believe the disparition of planet Earth, which would be turned into stellar dust, unstoppable.

God’s present problems with humans would go for good, it would be the very humans who will assume the task of doing away with them.

Another man of science in another planet several light years afterwards would be trying to determine the causes of that explosion he has just observed and its likeliest consequences, of course so unsuccessfully as his predecessor on the Earth was many light years before.

    When I read something as excellent as this, I grow in my conviction that ‘we are spiritual beings having a human experience, rather than human beings having a spiritual experience’.

    Oh, Richard, you are very kind, indeed, but I cannot see myself as an angel of sorts much that I try to. LOL.

    How do you know, Jose 😉

    Well, that is the end of the world as we have been foretold in biblical terms, films and various other media….. we just don’t know, do we? Apocalypse now, it’s what we try and grapple with. And I’m sure there are no angels…..however much we’d like them to exists.

    Jose, you might not update this blog very often but when you do, it’s always worth waiting for.

    Richard, interesting thought that we might be spiritual beings having a human experience. If it were so, I wonder how and why so many of these spiritual beings allow their/our human form to become so corrupted.

    You always your kind self, earthpal. My problem is time, after dedicating it to reading and commenting in the much more interesting blogs which I read every day, little is left to write my thoughts.

    Yes, Richard is insisting we may be “housing” spirits in ourselves and I wonder where those spirits go after the inevitable hour of our death. If it were as you say, Richard, perhaps after death that spirit you say may exist in ourselves would move to another body and therefore we should have to make no guessing. Don’t you think?
