If I may clarify the following. A statement was recently made to the
"...if you are not one of the 'saved' - you will be cast into outer
darkness, you will be destroyed."
And this generated the response: "This is ridiculous. The infinite
Firstly, the infinite cannot die, of course this is true. This is not
what the statement implied. The infinite is the foundation though of
the finite, which includes this world, the Kosmos, and all the lower
regions under the veil since the beginning of the error which led to
the creation of the Demiurge. All of these realms are most finite,
and have a temporary existence. We exist within these lower realms,
and are composed of the matter therein. By receiving gnosis though,
we can be saved, for then we will contain something that is of the
higher realms, and thus will no longer 'belong' to the lower realms.
It is written that the Outer Darkness is like a dragon who has
swallowed his own tail, so the parables of Jesus state. He goes on to
say that it is a condition or state of existence, in which a person
is trapped, and 'frozen up in the heat and cold'. Even the Outer
darkness is a realm, that is an 'extension' from God. All that exists
is an extension, and all extensions are linked to, and can be traced
back to their source. The lower realms, at the assension of the
universe - that is, where creation 'withdraws back into God' or God
ceases to manifest creation - are 'cut-off' though. This occurs when
a certain number of cycles have passed in the expansion of the
universe. Once they are cut-off, they instantly are swallowed up and
disappear as if they had never been, for nothing can exist that is
not an extension of God and the manifestation of God's thinking.
The part about not being saved is explained as follows. People who do
not have the light of gnosis in them, remain in the lower realms, and
have not earned the right to enter into the higher realms. Thus, when
the lower realms are cut-off and destroyed, the people who remain in
them, who did not receive the saving gnosis, and who are composed of
the same matter as the lower realms, are annihilated along with them.
There is no suggestion in this, that what is infinite itself 'dies',
for this cannot be. When Mind ceases to think, the Mind remains. Only
the Thinking itself ceases, and thus the outward manifestion of the
thoughts which we perceive as the world is gone.
