Bluth, you're not only asking good questions, but you're doing a great service to those who would ask them but aren't here to ask them, or will come later. Please take the credit for contributing to the welfare of others.
One thing I wish to impart to you is to start practicing using NATURE to find your answers. And your own body IS a significant part of nature.
So would all the babies alive right now suddenly pass puberty and start dating your sister in hopes of 'gettin' some'? No: every life unit is on its own timing. Whatever phase of ascension you're at is exactly where you're supposed to be
. I used the above bible quote because where you're at will determine where you go. (Remember my comment about your upcomingtrip to L.A.). And this ISN'T a sudden event: again, just like the earth isn't going to start spinning faster, the next year may SEEM faster, but all of this will unfold at the pace life can conduct.
One reason your questions are important is they uncover some of the deeper aspects OF the question.
For quantum mechanically-minded: as we traverse the sharper edges of the Event Horizon time concepts will get very chaotic. And the suddenly absolute calm. It's experiential: just enjoy the ride.
Another point your question brings up is something I need to impart, and that is the concerns about leaving loved ones behind. Again, let me get a break and I'll come back with that one. Should the site go down, remember I left you a link in the previous post way back there.
