(at the beginning of time?) and when it will end. It's a constant battle.
I'd like to post my theory about what is happening in this other world while trying to remain neutral. In the beginning there was this person who
told everyone about something called a spirit, "you". Before this the astral was like a big undefined soup with shapes forming and dissolving. Now
this was just a theory but that is what the astral is about; thoughts. But it reformed the human sphere, there was now land and spirits dwelling like
nomads. At some time someone was tired of always having to move around and came up with the idea of a soul, likening it to a house and this because of
this theory many smaller spheres were created with individual spirits inhabiting their own soul.
So the physical body creates the human spirit and the human spirit creates the soul, after death there is the transition to the soul where the spirit
continues to exist for all of eternity. Now each spirit had their own house which they could store their memories, ideas, all experiences, some agreed
to become neighbours by accepting the same faith which is something like the formation of a country where it's residents agreed upon creating
streetnames and assigning numbers to houses so spirits could assign a meeting place and move from A to B at an agreed time.
The soul governed the spirit and each spirit governed their own soul, choosing how to see itself only restricted by it's imagination, any unwanted
visitors were easily expelled or denied access. There was no war, things only became better.
Until when certain forces came up with an idea to conquer and unite all souls. They made up this larger sphere which encompasses all other spheres.
That way this larger soul has complete authority over all other souls. It's like all houses are being broken down and the bricks being transported to
some other place to expand this larger house and all spirits get a room there. Which might sound great because every spirit wants to belong to
something bigger but how it will turn out is that this larger force dictates all souls how to exist.
Before this joining of spheres, a spirit could be with another spirit and create everything they wanted and could imagine in their own private
infinity. Earth is where they would be created and "made" like a factory, ideally everyone would be taught everything about existence. They were
free to go as they please, the only boundary being imagination.
After, 2 spirits would not be told about existence as it is but an alternate version. They would have to ask the supreme authorities' permission for
anything they would want to do, for example to be with another spirit and they could only be together inside their own finite rooms. Forget about
changing even a grass halm in the garden without the permission of the master. There's no escape since all residents are made to believe outside this
larger sphere there is nothing at all and since they are not taught how to create they can't create anything in this void, but those highest
authorities can. And only if pleased and this can be done by working for them, for example think of cleaning one's own house, these spirits do not
want to clean anything just have fun so they made this big house and allowed people to live there but only if they clean up their mess for them. This
way many souls have to do chores while a minority gets the good life, just like on earth.
In reality however the astral is infinite and houses many spheres besides the human sphere. Some see through it all and understand the catch but most
do not and stay inside for all eternity even trying to prevent others from escaping. The way this scheme is constructed only the highest authority can
communicate with the real outside (which is a different outside to the 'resident souls' on the inside from that highest authorities' perspective)
which it never will if only because it is too busy inside the human sphere (and for fears of radical change that would occur). Nothing from the
outside can enter since there is only one single point of contact and this is controlled by the same that controls this sphere which controls all
other spheres within.
