Please clarify something for me.
We emerge as minerals within the mental plane.
We develop as plants in the astral plane.
We existed as beasts in the ethereal plane.
And we now inhabit the human form in the physical.
We devolve here as physical animals or ethereal animals? Same question for plant and mineral states (in regards to astral and mental). Assuming the devolution in in the other dimensions, are the current animal life devolving from previous Ethereal humanities? Or evolving into a future ethereal humanity.
But if that is the case would not that coming Ethereal humanity been animal in the physical, plant in the ethereal and mineral in the astral? In which case, how did they initially unfold if the mental plane was skipped?
At the conclusion of the devolution and the Second Death is the ego completely disintegrated?
The experience of the consciousness has already gone thru the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms previously. Why is it that evolution is necessary? Why isn't that experience already there?
So is the consciousness, not just the go, kind of destroyed in and of itself? Because what sets a brand new essense straight out of the Absolute from one that has been thru the Second Death?
