Will there be a future time when mankind will become extinct, like the dinosaurs, on this planet?
There will be a time when this planet may no longer be the seat of human intensest and existence. What is more probably to occur through natural evolution on this plane is a return to the knowing of two bodies within your possession. Your physical body which is a temporary body, and your true self, which many would say is non-physical, a light being, nonphysical. It is important to know that this is a training ground in which you interact, potentially, with many other beings, so far, not many have done so. The point at which human life ceases to exist would mean that this training ground, in these forms, is no longer necessary. It would be important to say that if this were the case, there is much training to be done in other areas. There are others who need this place, there are others that you will not communicate readily with on this plane in this lifetime but many who do not cross communicate once you return to your true home. This place is only temporary. It is essentially a hologram. There are other beings here that are capable of transporting themselves in their one body between the two places, but these do not entirely act with you when you return home. There will be a time when a new kind of evolution takes place. There will be a time when even the least experienced soul is the most experienced and it will be a new time for new experiences. Each time man progresses in this physical place there become new changes and challenges as those wishing to learn here require new tools and methods to accomplish it. If there were a time of extinction completely there would be a new form. There will be times when the Earth is no the most hospital place to reside, there will be other planets, moons, and other locations that will be inhabited by the human form. A change of form is quite some time away and nearly immeasurable accurately by numbers and ideology. There are not many on your plane who can conceive this but it is more important for them, as they read this, to know that all things require change, change is the permanent thing. Conflict arises in the self and with others, in actions, in thinking, in focus when we do not realize that change is the only permanence. Permanent is not permanent, all things are temporary. When you cease to change and adapt you are essentially stopping your own education, your own development as a being. There was a time when there was not much experience on this plane and fewer experiences were had because beings were equipped in that way. It is less so now for beings to remain in one or two experiences in their entire life. Time by your clock is not picking up, your clock is not moving faster, but the rate at which knowledge is acquired is moving faster. It is not necessarily a short attention span that moves focus so quickly between subjects and study matter and interests. The ability to overcome or quickly become well-versed in a subjects is what many are here to do, to gain valuable insight in a quick time. That is no way to indicate that you must rush, but if you feel that you have moved through many different fads, phases, interests, or periods, it is most entirely true, simply because you have gained from those things what you needed. There may be an interest for you later in your years and possibly later in lifetimes but there is no need for many things to be dwelled upon or within for an entire lifetime. As with all things these are not concrete rules, you may have an interest or a hobby, or a way of thinking that continues through an entire life, many lifetimes, or is part of your true being. As with learning the sense and presence of constant change, so should the ability to critically discern be taken upon yourself. It is important to know that learning is taking place at all times, and learning about the self is taking places, failures are failures, not life ending abruptions, they are opportunities for change. For many, the thought of life ceasing on this planet is unbearable, but when you consider the purpose of this place, the purpose of your presence, the purpose of learning change and learning all of its experiences, there is nothing to fear. There will be greater experiences elsewhere. It is not important for you at this moment. The future now, and in the long-term, is a bright one. New challenges. New experiences. New forms to posses with your being and new forms to interact with in conversation, mentalism, communication. Touch. It is all for you. You can experience new forms and other communication with other beings or forms with your true being while still connected to your physical body. Understand change and you will understand the universe. It is not to be controlled, it is to be symbiotically understood and cohabited with in a mutually beneficial and educational experience.
