The power of souls on this planet is beyond measure. Billions of souls from around the Universe are incarnating in bodies that were programmed to follow a pattern. Within the pattern are a vast number of rules that allow/disallow certain actions from taking place. This pattern is completely based upon the perception of reality taking hold as the most significant anchor. In many ways the pattern reinforces itself by creating hypnotic waves of empowerment followed by deep loss. We subconsciously crave the pattern because it appeals to all of our senses.
You can look at a societal pattern and determine its future course based upon what it finds significant. The difference between societal patterns relevant to a hosting planet and those which are Universal in nature, is that Universal patterns are based upon infinite circles and spirals. When a clear self-sustainable progression of consciousness mirrors the evolving nature of the Universe, it means that society has successfully progressed beyond self-deconstruction as its primary learning process.
The most important thing a developing race can achieve is true self-sustainability with the motivation to ascend into higher dimensions. If it lacks one or the other, it is either propagating war as an acceptable mode of existence, or it lacks the necessary emotional catalysts to want change. The significant power behind any civilization are the souls driving its existence. If the greatest motivation is inter-dimensional ascension, the subconscious network forms together in order to manifest the appropriate light structure. A society in a state of disarray powers misaligned structures to propagate limbo.
An entire 7 billion strong powerhouse decides to collectively become Creator realized as our most significant level of existence; the Universe would literally mold itself to try and figure out why the hell we were suddenly kicking so much ass.
