We must carry out exercises in thought and exercises in will if the portals of the supersensible world are to open for us. It is this world that we must enter if we want to know the eternal aspect of ourselves and of the universe. – Rudolf Steiner

There are many people who have envisioned a bifurcation of Earth into two Earths, two timelines, two realities.


  1. noun
    the division of something into two branches or parts:
    the bifurcation of the profession into social do-gooders and self-serving iconoclasts”

All earthly life forms result from “a splitting.” A mammalian cell undergoes mitosis to reproduce itself.  An amoeba uses binary fission and sporulation.  Some reptiles reproduce asexually, known as parthenogensis. Mushrooms use both sexual and asexual reproduction. In every case, there is a separation of one body into two or more bodies. In this realm, bifurcation appears to be the nature of evolution.

So why not a splitting of Earth?

From a scientific perspective, NASA Earth Scientists have identified a weakness in Earth’s magnetic field they call “The South Atlantic Anomaly” (SAA), which they claim has created a physical split in Earth that will affect satellites and electronics. Nothing more?

The earth is broken apart, The earth is split through, The earth is shaken violently. – Isaiah 24:19 New American Standard Bible

What about the bifurcation of humanity?

In ancient, prehistoric times, the temples of the spirit were outwardly visible, but today, when our life has become so unspiritual, they no longer exist where we can see them with our physical eyes. Yet spiritually they are still present everywhere, and whoever seeks can find them. – Rudolf Steiner

Humanity has reached the fork in the road on levels both physical and spiritual. Could the direction of human evolution (or devolution) depend upon the soul work that each individual has accomplished thus far vs. the collective? And could this difference be explained through Awakening?

Any awakening from a deep slumber is not for the faint of heart. Anything worthwhile is not easy.  It takes discernment, desire and the will for transformation.

Thus the organs of thinking, feeling, and willing become individualized; their connection henceforth is not maintained by laws inherent in themselves, but must be managed by the awakened higher consciousness of the individual. – Rudolph Steiner, The Splitting of the Human Personality During Spiritual Training 

A split naturally happens from pressure building up, not just of magnetic fields, but also due to changing laws, beliefs, and ways of being. As pressure increases, so, too, does the pressure to change. Bifurcations in religion are common throughout history. The Great Schism of 1054 marked the first major split in the history of Christianity, separating the Orthodox Church in the East from the Roman Catholic Church in the West. Little schisms followed.

Today, faced with bodily threats and restrictions on freedom, people are pushed more than ever to awaken spiritually. Awakening happens when a greatness is felt within that cannot be contained. As with a ripple in a pond, a shift of divinity ripples through human consciousness. So why not with Earth, which is alive and conscious?

Neither path is goodor bad.  Each is based on personal spiritual alignment and the soul work accomplished. For instance, if personal sovereignty is important, you will naturally choose one path, or timeline, over another.

The vision of the human being is confined today to the physical body. One regards this as a reality; one cannot raise oneself to what is spiritual. The souls who now look upon their own physical bodies with their eyes, and are unable to rise to what is spiritual, were incarnated among earlier peoples as Greeks, as Romans, and as ancient Egyptians. – Rudolf Steiner

Polarization of Paths

What do these two paths offer if not a polarization through contrasting qualities? This makes the paths clearer to discern. Each path is approached using free will. Both are part of a collective.

Path One – Connection to Nature

Spiritual human

Natural Law vs. Scientism

Universe vs. Metaverse

Organic Way of Life: Biodynamic farming, food forests

Freedom and personal sovereignty

Regenerative Healing Timeline

Health: Immune System to preserve genetics

Harmony – Christ Consciousness, of the heart, soul integration

Self-sustaining Communities



Path Two – Connection to Machines  


Scientism vs. Natural Law

Metaverse vs. Universe

Synthetic Way of Life: Synthetic meat

Oppression and lack of personal sovereignty

Degenerative Healing Timeline – Loss of Self

Health: Inoculations to alter genetics

Disharmony – AntiChrist Consciousness, soul separation or regression

Co-dependent Communities

Lack of emotion

One path nourishes the spirit more than the other. Lack of nourishment for the spirit causes anxiety, depression, and mental illness. Note today’s Opioid Epidemic resulting from attempts to satisfy those who are spiritually starved with synthetic solutions. Rudolf Steiner warned about the possible imbalances that can occur between the three soul-forces: thinking, feeling, and willing:

These are the three ways of error into which the student can stray: (1) exuberant violence of will, (2) sentimental emotionalism, and (3) cold, loveless striving for wisdom. For outward observation, and also from the ordinary (materialistic) medical standpoint, anyone thus gone astray is hardly distinguishable (especially in degree) from an insane or, at least, a highly neurasthenic person.


That is why it is so essential that the waking life of the student should be in every respect regular and healthy. The more capable he is of meeting the demands made by the outer world upon a healthy, sound constitution of body, soul, and spirit, the better it is for him.


He must seek to find everything corresponding to his powers and faculties which can lead him into undisturbed, harmonious communion with his surroundings, while avoiding everything detrimental to this harmony—everything that brings unrest and feverish haste into his life.

Each person is at a different level in life, in consciousness, and in the cosmos. Wherever that is, it is based on choice and free will.

Wherever you go, there you are. – Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD

Wherever you are is what you will find going forward.

The reason why some will not, or cannot, awaken is due to the difference in the capacity to align with truth, whether its called individual truth or universal truth.

Man must become a partaker of the spirit in order to carry its revelations into the physical world. He transforms the earth by implanting in it what he has ascertained in the spiritual world. That is his task. – Rudolf Steiner

Because you cannot convince those who do not wish to be convinced, instead honor and accept the path they choose. Then focus on your own.
