Unless nothing mate.

We are a product of our environment.

If we broach the singularity before we run out of energy and resources we might have a hand in the creation of Humanity 2.0.

But as long as we are stuck on this rock we seem destined to fight over whats on it and under it.

I choose to believe there are many ways that humanity could become an interstellar species. Perhaps it will take more cycles of collapse and renewal to achieve this. Obviously the end of the universe is a problem as well, or is it ?

Well, it's not something that can ever be measured or observed, that is whatever came before the current iteration of space-time in which exist.

They apparently have found stars that are estimated to older than the age of the universe, which raises some interesting queries.

Did a white hole spit the Methuselah star out into our universe, or has our universe somehow merged with another?

Then there is the possibility that we simply have it all wrong or that our estimation of the age of the star is off.

If it would have been Gods will that we quote scripture all the time we'd be parrots.
Instead he gave us a brain to think our own thoughts you should try...

It's a historical document and Manymasks asked about ascended masters of the past, so I quoted some that claimed to be ascended masters. I agree, we should be able to speak the truth from our own hearts and not rely on a script... But the script(ure) tells us about humanity's past and that's what Manymasks was asking about.

Describing an ascended master isn't easy. A lot of times I would imagine they aren't really written about because they fly under the radar. Here is one example that I found from Kahlil Gibran in the 19th century:

The Coming of the Ship

Almustafa, the chosen and the beloved, who was a
dawn unto his own day, had waited twelve years in
the city of Orphalese for a ship that was to return
and bear him back to the isle of his birth.
And in the twelfth year, on the seventh day of Ielool,
the month of reaping, he climbed the hill without
the city walls and looked seaward; and he beheld
his ship coming with the mist.
Then the gates of his heart were flung open, and his
joy flew far over the sea. And he closed his eyes
and prayed in the silences of his soul.
But as he descended the hill, a sadness came upon
him, and he thought in his heart:
How shall I go in peace and without sorrow? Nay, not
without a wound in the spirit shall I leave this city.
Long were the days of pain I have spent within its
walls, and long were the nights of aloneness; and
who can depart from his pain and his aloneness
without regret?
Too many fragments of the spirit have I scattered in
these streets, and too many are the children of my
longing that walk naked among these hills, and
I cannot withdraw from them without a burden
and an ache.
It is not a garment I cast off this day, but a skin that I
tear with my own hands.
Nor is it a thought that I leave behind me, but a heart
made sweet with hunger and with thirst.
Yet I cannot tarry longer.
The sea that calls all things unto her calls me, and I
must embark.
For to stay, though the hours burn in the night, is to
freeze and crystallize and be bound in a mould.
Fain would I take with me all that is here. But how
shall I?
A voice cannot carry the tongue and the lips that gave
it wings. Alone it must seek the ether.

The error is assuming Jesus was a living, breathing man; he was not. The story of Jesus is a metaphorical depiction of the mind. God is your imagination. Thus we access god through christ; imagination through the mind. When you pray, believe that it is already so and it will be. That is what it means to live by "faith".

Listen to the work of Neville Goddard. He is the only one to accurately decipher the true meaning of the bible.

Have you awakened the kundalini serpent and experienced christos?

I woke my Mrs up eating Doritos stoned in bed, does that count?

Understanding is the ability to see how the parts or aspects of something relate to one another, to see the entire matter and not just isolated facts. Proverbs 9:10, in saying that “knowledge of the Most Holy One is what understanding is,” shows that true understanding of anything involves appreciation of its relation to God and his purposes.

The video further below may help a person better understand the phrase "for we are walking by faith, not by sight." (2Cor 5:7, NW)

‘Walk by Faith, Not by Sight’

The Roman army abandons its siege of Jerusalem. Two Christian families face tough choices. Will they obey Jesus and forever walk away from all that is familiar to them? Their decision will mean life or death. This video portrays events described in the Bible that are historically accurate. For accuracy, there are scenes of fighting; however, the violence is not glorified but merely depicts the reality faced by first-century Christians.
