(didn't even mention it) and a future mode of procreation. If I was
going to speculate, I would look at environmental pollution as a major
cause of reproductive failure; sperm counts declining, genetic
malformations increasing, poisonous breast milk, malnutrition,
chemicals in food, chemically medicated populations, ozone depletion
allowing for increasing cosmic radiation to enter, etc. Egad, just
thinking about it makes me wonder about the gauntlet that incoming
souls will have to pass. Why bother? Many that wish to incarnate in
spite of the obstacles simply will not be able to.
How this will manifest in the inability of women to concieve and bear
souls (as opposed to bodies) is an interesting question, and how
another method to substitute for what has worked since the dawn of
biological evolution is anyone's guess. It certainly isn't mine,
because I have no guesses.
