One of the charactoristics of the free radical is that it literally steals protons from nearby atoms and molecules. There's a ton of information just in that one sentence. If you consider the fractal nature of our universe, then you know that what's happening at the molecular leverl is also happening in our larger world, and the solar system larger than us. That statement takes me back to the chaotic node and the demise of this forum.
I had said that the Pavlina forum was a microcosm of events, and that's true. All reliable spiritual sources have spoken repeatedly aboutthe earth upheavals and "The Shift". This is exactly what you're experiencing. "As above, so below", or in a term most of you are more familiar with , "On earth as it is in heaven".
So if a free radical is stealing the proton or electron or one of the basketballs atoms use for sports, the victim is deficit. the choice is to either replace the loss with Light, or continue the theft-chain by also stealing. You can see the same pattern in our society at large, and specifically the money system. This will now continue to get worse. the crux of the matter is because the Christed...Embodied Light...will no longer be around. So the thefts, prompted by scarcity, will indeed be a microcosm of the society's collapse.
