Population overcrowding results in something called an out-of-balance of the land to man ratio. According to our celestial friends, this planet could
comfortably keep of between 2 and 3 billion people, but not more. We are approaching over 3 times what the planet can sustain. Man usually meets
overpopulation by either accepting lower standards of living, or by territorial expansion. But there are few land masses on our planet that can be
invaded and support a much larger population, and the un-equal distribution of wealth and resources around the world will not easily lend itself to
the “haves” accepting a reduction in their standard of living.
“Human resources. Man power is indispensable to the spread of civilization. All things equal, a numerous people will dominate the civilization of a
smaller race. Hence failure to increase in numbers up to a certain point prevents the full realization of national destiny, but there comes a point in
population increase where further growth is suicidal. Multiplication of numbers beyond the optimum of the normal man-land ratio means either a
lowering of the standards of living or an immediate expansion of territorial boundaries by peaceful penetration or by military conquest, forcible
occupation.” [The URANTIA Book, pp 907-908- see Tmarchives
In 2006, a high Son of the universe spoke to the problem and the correction in these recorded excerpts: [All quotes here are from
“The population of your world is grossly out of balance. It will be at that time, which you state , approximately three times larger than it
should be. There is truly an equation for the number of people that can successfully, productively, rationally, spiritually, occupy land in
relationship to the square mileage or land mass.” . . . .
“We will not institute any global program of eugenics. This situation of over-population of your planet will be self-rectifying. It is unavoidable;
it is now in preparation, we are aware that there are forces in your world, which will change the population level dramatically in a very brief period
of time.” . . . .
“This scythe that will cut across the populations of your world, is no respecter of status, power, authority, monies, or spiritual development—it
will strike evenly to everyone. And it will reduce the population of your planet: it is unavoidable; it is inevitable; it will occur. And when you do
cross, whether before or after this occurs, we are there, we are so close to you. We will help you make this transition more easily.”
“We work with all individuals; we work with all souls. We wish that the production of healthy, whole, heavy souls occur on every planet, and that
every soul that leaves this planet be weighty with wisdom, experience, understanding, insight, and personal reverence. You make them by moral and
ethical decisions; you make heavy souls with the addition of service—not required, obligatory service, but joyful service, generous service, gleeful
service, service that is done from the heart.”
This problem of overpopulation is admixed with other ethical problems developing on our earth that will, in the final analysis, create a sea change on
our civilizations. For the most part, these population pressures coupled with all the racial tendencies because of genetic misalignments, will be
forced on man. Man will call them “nature”, and nature will evolve a tactic, already in the works, to bring the world back into a normal balance
with its life forms.
Spirit dominates mind, and mind dominates the material or natural laws of the universe. Disease is a consequence of spiritual mis-adaptation while
mind remains ignorant of the laws which can abate such disasters from happening in cooperation with Spirit. No one is calling anybody
“unspiritual” by the above, but clearly if a sane process of reproduction was somehow found, man would not now be faced with a monumental act of
nature to eventually cull his numbers to a more manageable (in a planetary sense) population.
This approach, the spiritual one in coordination with material facts, is the one that eventually will provide solutions. Solutions to both maintain
culture and preserve learning will be necessary if population over production continues at the present and uncontrolled rate.
Thank you all.
