- Dear Bradford,
thanks for the pictures abouth the 8th sphere question.
I remember that spiritual teachers like Massimo Scaligero and Mimma
Benvenuti had the same insight about the fact that "up to date" no human
soul were lost in the Cosmic Hell.
I rember also,however, that Jesaiah Ben Aharon in his "the Spiritual Event"
gives a different picture (page 64 footnote 12) talkin'about the leading
group of Nazi criminal who, for the first time in Human evolution
perpertrate evil self-consciously.........

I would love to have you send the Ben Aharon fragment along. I haven't read
his take. Also, Dear Andrea I am working on your insights and will soon
share... One other minor, tiny, little thing... Could you learn to delete
what you don't need to send.. so that the tonage of data is a little less
