Now as we head into Part Three, we check in on the remarkable works of Edgar Cayce and the Law of One series. Cayce’s readings specifically mention a Solar Cycle, and we investigate that question against the backdrop of other information in the Cayce Readings.

Then, we go through an in-depth analysis of a series of excerpts from the Law of One seriesl, giving us a precise outline of what we might expect as a result of Ascension, or what they refer to as the “harvest.”

September 22, 1939: Sleeping Prophet Edgar Cayce is finally becoming well known in the public eye. The world is soon to be in war. Tensions are high and patience low.

For thirty years or more, Cayce’s information had been quite astounding in its own right. He had captured the interest of the academic world through fantastic medical readings, correctly diagnosing illnesses and prescribing natural treatments.

It is now a well-known fact that with nothing more than a name and address, Cayce could go into a trance state and precisely describe any medical ailment facing a person, with a 99-percent accuracy rating.

With no formal education, his “readings” used all the mainstream anatomical and medical jargon of his day. Absolutely no one can argue these points, and thus Cayce’s medical readings are essentially “bullet-proof” to the prying eyes of the devoutly skeptical.

The readings would also prescribe a huge range of natural remedies to cure these problems, involving everything from diet to exercise to homeopathy to chiropractors, masseurs and osteopaths.

They designed many new medical remedies that had never before been seen, precisely describing what ingredients to use and in what combinations. They also designed new devices for healing, including the Wet Cell, the Radial Appliance and the Violet Ray.

For the time period he was in, and indeed any time period, Cayce’s results were extraordinary in scope. It seemed that there was a limitless access to all manners of spiritual information, similar to Ramanujan’s access to mathematics.

However, for almost the first twenty years of Cayce’s psychic career, the topic of reincarnation was never mentioned once, nor many other metaphysical facts and concepts that were largely controversial at the time.

But now, in 1939, Cayce is now on the opposite end of a major personal breakthrough — he decided to lighten up on his diehard Fundamentalist Christian beliefs and begin accepting many metaphysical things that his readings had wanted to tell him for years.

This information included things such as past lives, astrology and even life on other planets.

Had the forces revealed this knowledge earlier, he would most likely have declared them evil and possibly shut down the entire process.

In the midst of this new information, Cayce’s sources reveal the possibility of epic, unprecedented changes centering around the year 1998. It is on this day, September 22, 1939, that perhaps the single greatest puzzle piece in the entire Cayce saga was granted regarding this issue:


8. (Q) Three hundred years ago Jacob Boehme decreed Atlantis would rise again at this crisis time when we cross from this Piscean Era into the Aquarian. Is Atlantis rising now? Will it cause a sudden convolution and about what Year?

[As we will explore in later chapters, French astronomers have fixed the dawning of the Aquarian Age as somewhere around 2011 — almost exactly the same time period as that of the 12/21/2012 ending date of the Mayan Calendar. Here the Cayce Readings are calling this a ‘crisis time’.

If 2012 were the only date to be concerned with, we should expect that the Cayce Readings would have mentioned it. Instead, they call attention to 1998 as a possible focal-point:]

(A) In 1998 we may find a great deal of the activities as have been wrought by the gradual changes that are coming about.

These are at the periods when the cycle of the solar activity, or the years as related to the sun’s passage through the various spheres of activity become paramount or Catamount to the change between the Piscean and the Aquarian age.

This is a gradual, not a cataclysmic activity in the experience of the earth in this period. [emphasis added]

– 1602-003,  9/22/39


The original question was essentially this: “Is the sunken land of Atlantis going to rise again? If it does, will it cause a sudden convolution, a shifting in the landmass? What year could we expect something like this to take place?”

Notice that the wording of the answer does not indicate a definitive answer to any of these questions. It does not definitively state that Atlantis will rise, nor that California will sink.

It does say that this event is a gradual, not a cataclysmic activity during this period. Therefore, although other Cayce readings did indicate disaster in 1998, this one clearly does not. Let us focus on what we did get in this reading, as it is extremely important.

Paraphrasing the answer in the readings, one might come up with the following statement:

“A great deal of the gradual, (not cataclysmic) changes surrounding the transition into the Aquarian Age may be happening in 1998.

It is a [Great] Cycle in the Sun’s activity that brings in this new age. Or, more precisely, it is the passage of the Sun through other spheres of activity that creates this solar cycle.”

Our crucial question in unfurling the puzzle then becomes “What other spheres of activity does the Sun pass through?” This should lead us to ask, “What does the Sun revolve around?”

The obvious answer, based on the system of physics that we have been investigating, is that the forces are referring to the spherical harmonics of various “consciousness units” existing as force points in the Milky Way Galaxy.

As time progresses, we will bolster this idea with greater evidence, including that of a mathematical nature. Let us paraphrase again.

“1998 will bring many of the great awakenings that lead into the Aquarian Age. This is being caused by the Great Cycle of the Sun.

This great solar cycle is in turn caused by the revolution of the Sun through the various spheres of activity in the galaxy.

This cycle is a gradual activity; it does not occur all at once.”

Wilcock’s own readings explain clearly that through events such as the Jonesboro school shootings, the popularity of the movie Titanic and its ability to cause spontaneous emotional release, and the public “crucifixion” of President Clinton, major awakenings within the public were made.

Indeed, now that it has passed, we might not see 1998 as being such a crucial year, yet an event like the Clinton scandal is truly unprecedented in world history. Through Internet, the private life of the world’s most powerful man was exposed in excruciating detail to the public.

This, in turn, has led to powerful realizations within the populace of the reality of how wrong these extra-marital sexual behaviors really are.

We learned a powerful lesson in not hurting our own loved ones, in this case our spouses. In the “group mind” of humanity, massive changes did indeed occur.

The next problem here is twofold. We know that Cayce’s reading listed above refers to a solar cycle. We are given almost nothing to go on regarding this cycle, except that the Cayce readings put strong weight in the year 1998.

We will tackle the question of how 1998 relates to the Solar Cycle in later chapters, but for now, we will focus on the first part of the problem.

If this Solar Cycle is in fact a tangible, measurable phenomenon, there should be certain clues in the Cayce Readings that steer us in this direction. We will now go digging for those clues and see what we can find.

First of all, if we look back to the reading, we can see that this Solar Cycle is clearly associated with the passage from one age to another.

We know that we are currently in the 2,160-year Age of Pisces, and will move into the Age of Aquarius at a point in time calculated by French scientists as occurring in the year 2011.

So right away, we see that there is a possibility that these ages of the Zodiac figure in to our equation.

As some of us may or may not know, there are a total of 12 ages, for the twelve signs of the zodiac. And 12 times 2160 is 25,920. Thus, one complete or Great Age of the Zodiac would be 25,920 years.

Someone might wonder why this number was chosen, since it might appear to be arbitrary. Actually, it is not arbitrary at all. This number is actually an observable astrological cycle that the Ancients have known about for thousands of years.

It is referred to as the precession of the equinoxes. This means that the position of certain stars that appear to be fixed will actually precede through the sky in a set motion every year. You would measure the position of these “fixed stars” each Equinox, and after 72 years, you could indeed observe that all the stars would have shifted in their positions by one degree of arc in the night sky.

Of course, the number 72 is twice that of 36, so right away we can see the harmonic systems at work. We remember that in the last chapter, the designers of the Great Seal of the United States put exactly 72 bricks into the Pyramid. 12 and 2160 are also perfect harmonic numbers, along with the “master number” of 25,920.

In order to visualize the one-degree movement every 72 years of precession, we must look at Polaris, which we normally would consider to be fixed and immovable. This is the “North Star” that we all know and love, because it appears that all other stars in the heavens rotate around it during the course of the night. However, precession will eventually move Polaris out of this position.

For example, the star Alpha Draconis, in the nearby constellation Draco, was at one time also in this position. The movement of the earth that accounts for this phenomenon is the precession.

Since the questioner for this reading asked for specific details regarding the passage of these zodiacal ages, we can see a direct connection to the 25,920-year precession of the equinoxes.

Cayce’s readings attribute it to a solar cycle, although current scientific opinion has it that this precession is caused by a “wobble” in the Earth’s axis, caused by an interplay between the Sun’s gravity and the Moon’s gravity, having a very slow effect on the Earth’s orbit. The effect is said to be the product of Earth acting as a gyroscope.

Many people know that the Earth is not a perfect sphere, but rather an “oblate spheroid,” meaning that it bulges at the Equator. And so, due to the uneven distribution of weight, the Earth experiences a very slow counter-rotation in the opposite direction to its normal counter-clockwise, or west to east rotation.

The same thing can be seen to happen in a spinning top that has broken its regular upright rotation and is about to grind to a halt. Let’s say your top represents the Earth, and you start it spinning counterclockwise.

You can watch it go along for a good bit of time and everything will be fine, but before too long it will shudder and start a slow opposite-spinning motion as it also continues spinning at its normal speed.

This shudder will occur in a clockwise direction, opposite to that which you started your top with. You will see a slow but precise circle traced out as it continues to slow down. So, even as it continues spinning very fast, once it destabilizes, it also traces a circle very slowly in the opposite direction.

We can tell from looking at this that it obviously has to do with a gravitational effect. There is no question that the strongest gravitational factors on the Earth are the Sun and Moon, and thus modern astrophysicists explain that this motion is caused by the interplay of these gravitational forces.

This still doesn’t get us much further in terms of understanding why this cycle is 25,920 years. There doesn’t seem to be any causative mechanism that is specific enough to explain the precise length of this motion.

Clearly the image of precession is a complicated picture to visualize, and the best way to do it with the Earth would seem to be through the notion of a visible axis. If the Earth were reduced to the size of a basketball, and you could walk up to it as it spins, you could visualize a giant axle going through the Earth in a north-south direction.

Let’s say that you could touch and move the axle without disturbing the Earth’s rotation, similar to a gyroscope. The Earth would be on its 23.5-degree tilt, inclined away from being straight up and down.

If you went up to this axle and grabbed it on the top and bottom, you could spin it in a slow, deliberate circle in the opposite direction from its counter-clockwise rotation. It would be similar to stirring a giant pot of food with a spoon, making one complete circle. The time that it would take you to complete this circle would be, in Earth terms, one Precessional Year of 25,920 years.

So, that is our official explanation for how to visualize precession, and how long it is. Now we have a Cayce Reading that seems to be indicating a solar cycle that is coming to the end of its age, not strictly an Earth cycle.

If there is indeed a cycle in the Sun that governs the precise length of precession, we have yet to officially discover it.

In future chapters, we will present very compelling evidence that a researcher by the name of Maurice Cotterell has done just that, to an amazing degree of accuracy. Cotterell has also tied this Solar Cycle in directly to the enigmatic Mayan Calendar.

But for now, our concern is the Cayce readings themselves. If they are indeed referring to a cycle roughly 25,000 years in length, then there should be some other clues in the readings that point us in this direction. So, we need to discover if the Cayce Readings do in fact refer to any turning points of previous ages, and then see if the numbers jump out at us.

Without getting into tedious detail, and for the purposes of keeping this chapter brief, we can summarize the following information. Anyone can cross-validate this data in a variety of means, including the numerous Edgar Cayce books that are available as well as going directly into the readings themselves to find it.

We will quickly see the implications of the actual information that the Cayce Readings have given us as we study the events that are listed for these various periods of time. Here are the approximate values in years for the Cayce cosmology of ages:

10,500,000 BCE: First apelike humans living in caves that separated into families. These formed the bodies for modern humanity. [2665-2] [5748-2]

200,000 BCE: Entrance of extraterrestrial-like spiritual entities to Earth plane, forming original Atlantis. [364-4]

Entities are “much rather of the nature of thought-forms” that could “push out of themselves… in the way and manner as the amoeba.” [364-3] The entities in question are hyper-dimensional or non-physical beings.

100,000 BCE: Amilius, a spiritual entity present at the time, notices that a crisis is forming. The thought-form entities are becoming separate from their spiritual roots, and may become “hardened.” [364-3]

75,000 BCE: Thought-form entities become “hardened or set much in the form of the existent human body of the day.” The hyperdimensional thoughtform presence suddenly begins occupying the human bodies on the Earth, as well as animals.

Spiritually conscious humankind is born, and with it comes a forgetting of its original heritage. Amilius begins a massive program to free the hyperdimensional entities by joining them in the physical form to teach them who they really are. This incarnation of Amilius is called Adam, the “First Man.” [364-3]

[Note: The Cayce Readings do not specify exactly when this “hardening” took place; the Ra Material, on the other hand, gives us the date we have listed.]

50,000 BCE: First major human technological civilization on Earth collapses from pole shift. Near-total destruction of Lemuria and partial sinking of Atlantis.

A worldwide conference had just decided to use a radiation-type device designed to kill predatory animals in very large numbers. After the polar shift itself, the inhabitants discovered that their use of radiation only exacerbated a cycle that was about to complete anyway.

25,000 BCE: Second major inundation of Atlantis. Civilization falls yet again.

12,500 BCE: Third major inundation of Atlantis. Great Pyramid is built in part to preserve the records.

1 AD: Amilius / Adam returns to Earth for final physical incarnation as Jesus the Christ. He then completes His obligations in getting humanity to recognize how to escape materiality through the process of Ascension. This sets the pattern for all others to follow.

As we can see from the chart, there is a lot of interesting metaphysical information that can be developed as a result of all this.

The reader is encouraged to ponder on these matters, and look further to the many books about Cayce and Atlantis for more details regarding these things, such as The Egyptian Heritage, Edgar Cayce on the Origin and Destiny of Man and Mysteries of Atlantis Revisited.

For now, the immediate focus should be in seeing that the cycle we are looking for in the Cayce Readings cosmology of ages is indeed divisible into roughly 25,000-year units.

Thus, we can aptly demonstrate a fundamental connection between Cayce’s “solar cycle, or the Sun’s passage through the various spheres of activity” and our approximately 25,000-year figure for precession.

While we have the data right in front of us, it is good to point out some other things in this Cayce cosmology that are now backed up with modern science. In the Cayce timeline, the entrance of human bodies to the Earth is cited as being some ten million years ago.

This falls precisely in line with the latest research that has been done by Thompson and Cremo regarding historical cases of fully human skeletons that have been found. The epic work that catalogs these discoveries is called Forbidden Archaeology, and their assertions are backed by hard, definitive science.

Their conclusion is that the entire Darwinian theory of evolution is wrong and modern humanoid-styled beings have been on Earth in one form or another for approximately the last ten million years.

The entrance of extraterrestrial-type spiritual beings to the Earth is cited in the Cayce readings as being some 200,000 years ago.

It is quite interesting to note that modern genetic researchers have concluded that the human DNA can be traced back to a single Eve who lived some 200,000 years ago. This fact is referenced most completely in Zecharia Sitchin’s book, Genesis Revisited.

The work of Richard Hoagland and others regarding the possible extraterrestrial ruins on Mars, which we have already explored in previous chapters, also points towards the time of 200,000 years ago.

This was perhaps the most recent time that Mars could have endured a cataclysmic asteroid collision that led to its destruction. There is overwhelming evidence that Mars was very similar to Earth at one point in its past, with fertile oceans, blue skies, clouds and rain.

The evidence, from researchers such as astrophysicist Thomas Van Flandern, is very strong in suggesting that a colossal explosion caused by an asteroid was responsible for the demise of Mars.

Another resource for this data is found in Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval’s The Mars Mystery. Interestingly, the most recent “Mars Meteorite” being examined in Europe as having possible evidence for bacterial life also traces back to 200,000 years ago. It is certainly possible that this planetary cataclysm might have been what jogged the rock loose.

Going back to the essential point raised in the Cayce Readings, it would appear that all modern humans have “fallen” from a more spiritual and energetic form of life.

These lifeforms are referred to as “thoughtform beings… capable of pushing themselves out in a matter similar to the amoeba.”

We are not told very much about these beings in the readings, but the implications are that they possessed vast intelligence, enough so that it allowed them to be able to project into animals in the first place.

The inescapable conclusion that we are faced with in the Cayce Readings is that the intelligent energy of these creatures caused a modification in the DNA of the existing hominids on the planet.

By entering into bodies in the way that they did, they might have had a definite effect on the DNA structures. Cayce tells us that their complete “hardening” by 75,000 BCE in turn led to the production of modern humanoids.

The modification of the DNA structure would therefore be the “hardening” or “setting” referred to in the Cayce Readings above. Cayce’s slant on the story would tell us that the vibrations of the entities themselves must have had a direct effect on the structure of the human DNA molecules.

This does harmonize with the interesting facts about DNA that we have already discussed. It has been repeatedly demonstrated by scientists, including one of the original discoverers of the DNA molecule itself, that the design is far too complex to have come about through the random processes of evolution espoused in the Darwinian model.

Therefore, the scientific paradigm is increasingly moving in the direction of “intelligent design.”

Furthermore, as we have already stated, Gregg Braden cited research that proved that a DNA molecule, when inserted into a cylinder of light, would attract the photons within and cause them to spiral along with itself.

And we remember that he also said that this spiral will continue once the DNA has been removed. So, since we now have seen that the “spiraling line of light” is the fundamental building-block of the Consciousness Unit, and the Consciousness Unit according to Seth is the formation of all intelligent perception, everything starts to become clearer.

Each one of us is truly a “hardened” wavelength of a form of consciousness that at one time was a form of pure spiraling Light! Since we learned in the late 20th century that the DNA of modern humanity can be traced back to an origin 200,000 years ago, we have to accept the fact that there is an increasing body of scientific evidence that fits Cayce data very well; data that came in advance of these more recent discoveries.

One thing that is a definite fact is that Cayce’s medical accuracy cannot be disproven. So for now, let us continue to work with this timeline. The actual combination of these thoughtform entities with the physical humanoid bodies on the Earth took place in 75,000 BCE.

Therefore, this would be when the cycle of human incarnations began in proper. We will see a little later that the Ra Material covers this in great detail. From this we can then see that if the cycle length is roughly 25,000 years, there have been exactly three cycles leading up to the present.

The fall of Atlantis, occurring 12,500 years ago, would be exactly at the halfway point of the most recent 25,000-year cycle. Therefore, each cycle appears to be divisible in half, and the ending point of either half might produce stressful tectonic activity.

The sinking of a landmass like Atlantis could be explained through the idea of magnetic pole shift, which we previously discussed as being sanctioned by no other than Albert Einstein, upon reviewing the work of Charles Hapgood.

In Hapgood’s model, the entire Earth’s magnetic field suddenly reverses its polarity, causing a sudden change in the location of magnetic North and South as well as causing the Earth’s outer crust to slide over the liquid mantle inside.

Obviously this process would cause immediate and very serious trouble on Earth for those who still remained in the third density – and that is the key phrase.

Researchers like Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky in his book Worlds in Collision have definitively tied the notion of a Pole Shift into the immediate, wholescale destruction of much of the animal life on Earth in the past.

Velikovsky’s data includes the discoveries of huge numbers of prehistoric animals that lived in temperate climates showing up twisted, mangled and dead in Arctic regions. The carbon-dated time for these disasters is identical to the time of pole shift.

Facts like this point Velikovsky and others to the notion that what happened on Earth was so fast and so catastrophic that the surfaces of the Earth itself literally changed from tropical to Arctic in a matter of minutes, depending on where they were located. In other words, the Earth completely shifted its position in the heavens.

And furthermore, it is commonly known that the last major magnetic pole reversals that have been recorded occurred roughly 75,000, 50,000 and 25,000 years ago.

So again, we can see a very precise dovetailing between the collapses of the purported lost civilizations in the Cayce Readings and the actual dates for the pole reversals. The Cayce Readings also referred to these collapses as occurring through “a shift in the magnetic poles of the earth.”

It should be no surprise that the Cayce Readings indicate another polar shift occurring in 2001. The epic work of Michael Mandeville provides conclusive geological evidence to support the idea that Cayce’s predictions will come true.

Now note that in this book we are not predicting any doom. The larger implications of the Great Solar Cycle indicate that a fundamental shift in the nature of consciousness and energy itself will naturally transition us to a level where this would not affect us.


At this point we will again give some background information regarding the Law of One material remind ourselves of the significant points of this development in the field of “psychic readings.”

This author stands behind the opinion of fellow author and friend Dr. Scott Mandelker in saying that the Ra / Law of One Material is at the cutting edge of channeling.

The Law of One is second only to the Cayce Readings in terms of its veracity, reliability and depth of documentable, provable facts it exposes. And in many ways, the Law of One surpasses the Cayce Readings, since you do not have to go digging through 14,000 different obscure readings to find all of the important information — everything is contained in five books.

Mandelker’s comments on Ra are gleaned from Appendix 3 of his book From Elsewhere. He states the following:

Without a doubt The Ra Material is the single most important source of written teaching I’ve ever encountered. The Ra Material is the first of four volumes of channeled text, organized into 100 question-and-answer sessions over a two and a half year period.

Having said this, it becomes difficult to organize my thoughts on a subject whose personal influence has been so tremendous, such a revolutionizing and redefining experience.

For anyone interested or sympathetic to the extraterrestrial perspective, I believe it’s difficult to come into contact with The Ra Material without its having a profound impact on one’s personal civilization and feelings. Indeed, I believe one’s complete outlook on the universe will be altered.

The Law of One series was the end product of over twenty years of channeling work from a three-person team that called themselves L/L Research. Each member of the team was equally valuable to the connection being formed.

In this work, the ‘instrument’ Carla Rueckert was rendered completely unconscious, just as Cayce was in his own work. [This is not the typical pattern for “channeled” literature, which is usually done from at least a semi-conscious state.]

Rueckert had no memory whatsoever of what she said in the Ra contacts, whereas her earlier experiences had always been through the process of “conscious channeling.” Ra spoke directly through Rueckert and was questioned by Don Elkins, Ph.D., a former airline pilot and University of Louisville physics professor.

Mandelker is not the only published author to express the utmost praise for the Ra Material on the printed page. Also in this camp is retired USAF Lt. Col Donald Ware.

Col. Ware’s account of the Ra Material is given in the book UFOs and the Alien Presence- Six Viewpoints by Michael Lindemann, published by The 2020 Group, CA, 1991.

At the time the book was published, Col. Ware was the Eastern Regional Director of MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network. Ware played a key role in MUFON’s investigation of the now-famous Gulf Breeze sightings in Florida. MUFON concluded that the photographs from Gulf Breeze were indeed authentic.

Lindemann clearly did not expect that Ware was going to get into the topics discussed in the Ra Material, and it seems that Ware’s own information gleaned from Ra was quite surprising, even amazing, to Lindemann. Ware states the following in his interview with Lindemann:

ML: You speak of the larger reality. I’d like to know what you mean by that.

DW: The larger reality is the basis of all the major religions of the world, and all the secret societies. It’s knowledge that was so heavy that only a few could comprehend it, and not thoroughly at that.

The larger reality is coming through to us in many different ways now, most of them telepathically.

I think the clearest description that I’ve read in the last couple of years is in the four books of The Law of One, which are the transcripts of 104 question-and-answer sessions that Don Elkins had with an entity called Ra between 1981 and 1983.

[Note: The fifth book in the Ra series, a collection of personal material, was released for the first time in 1998.]

The information contained in the Law of One series is vast, but so was the toll that it took on Carla’s body.

As we already mentioned in the chapter on Ramanujan, when we look at the field of psychic readings as a whole, there are repeated examples of people who suffer considerable damage to the body as a result of their work. These include Jane Roberts, Paul Solomon and Edgar Cayce, all of whom had deep connections and died at a rather early age.

Similarly, the Ra connection was enormously draining on Carla’s physical and vital energy, exacerbating pre-existent arthritis pains and kidney dysfunction. By the end of the fourth book in the series, this reader was practically in tears over the toll it finally took on her. It appears that she may well have died if they had tried to continue it any farther than they did.

But apparently, this physical toll in vital energy was part of Carla’s gift, in order to be able to bring in this unique information for the world.

Ra is indicated to be an extraterrestrial group that aided in the founding of high civilization in Egypt after the fall of Atlantis. The words that emerged from Carla’s lips are arguably more complicated and intricate than any other material in existence, and yet remain 100 percent consistent in data from one session to the next, throughout all five books.

The Ra Material was not dictated as a book as much as a long series of question and answer sessions — 106 in total — between Ra and Don Elkins. The complexity of the Ra information was so high that it frequently stumped Elkins, who was obviously very well educated and had researched the UFO phenomenon for more than twenty years.

The group itself was in control of what questions were asked, and they were routinely chided for venturing into areas that were “off-topic,” which Ra called “issues of transient importance.”

It is quite evident from reading Ra that the only topic they wished to discuss was the Law of One, as this was the most powerful law that anyone could ever hope to understand.

The law states that all entities, places and things in all dimensions of the creation are One, and there is no actual separation between any of them.

Ra explained that the single most important thing we can learn to support the Law of One is the notion of service to others.

That is the one term almost invariably used when Ra describes the positive polarity, or the positive path. The term used for the negative polarity is those who choose the path of service to self. Therein lies the distinction.

It is the author’s own experience that a half-hour can be spent on one page, reading, rereading and digesting the material, before it can be understood.

To read and begin to understand all five books is no small feat. The main arguments in this book that you now read are the end result of two years of intense study of certain portions of this material, so in a sense, the author has taken the liberty to analyze the literature and compress the main points into simple chunks.

Indeed, due to the overwhelming difficulty that it presents, Ra is not for everyone, and the author himself never gave it a second look when first perusing a copy of Book Three in a bookstore.

It certainly appears that no human intelligence could ever really understand everything said in the Law of One material; we can simply stand on the outside and point a finger at the most obvious parts.

According to these readings, Ra is a “social memory complex” from the sixth dimension, which they claim is actually the equivalent of an entire planet worth of beings that have fused into one identity.

Their planet of origin is in our own solar system, and very long ago in our terms they had a third-density civilization there — the planet is Venus. Several scientific studies have pointed towards the fact that Venus may have been much more Earthlike in the distant past, making it suitable for life.

This was the topic of a feature article in USA Today in 1996, with the headline, “Venus may have had life millions of years ago.” Of course, both the Cayce readings and Ra would agree that Venus is still quite suitable for higher-dimensional lifeforms.

The Ra group often used words far outside the range of Carla’s own vocabulary, forcing them to use dictionaries afterwards.

Though this body of material is far less recognized than the Cayce Readings, there is every reason to believe that in many ways it is an improvement in information quality over them in the sense of providing a comprehensive “cosmology of dimensions” with the physics to go along with it.

We should also say this: Cayce apparently was going to a higher dimensional level than Ra to obtain the information; namely the octave, or eighth. Ra indicated that they were a sixth-density source. No other reliable “channeled” information appears to be coming from anything higher than the fifth density, besides Ra and Cayce.

Cayce’s extreme fundamentalist beliefs only allowed him to obtain esoteric information after more than thirty years of strictly medical-based psychic readings.

For years, Wilcock had felt that an immense, untapped knowledge was hiding behind the Cayce readings, with only the briefest glimmers coming into view in such cases as the solar cycle reading given above.

The forces were never actually allowed to simply explain everything they really knew, as Cayce wouldn’t have tolerated it. Plus, the readings were done for paying customers who wanted to find out about their own lives.

Our statement that the Law of One series could be construed as a better source is not meant to attack or undermine the credibility of the Cayce Readings one bit. However, it is safe to say that the Ra contact improves greatly upon the same information that is only hinted at in Cayce’s work.

The main difference in the Law of One series is twofold. Cayce’s readings were quite obscure, and this was due to the fact that he sent a portion of himself individually to these higher realms to obtain the information.

Thus, in conducting these information searches, all he had was the resources of one entity — namely himself. With the Law of One series we are told that we have a whole planet worth of entities involved. These entities naturally live in that level, and thus have much more experience putting the material together and being able to communicate it in an accurate and reliable fashion.

The second reason why the Law of One series is more useful is that there were no apparent limitations in the flexibility of the beliefs with the group doing the work. Cayce’s inflexibility posed a tremendous and ongoing problem to the forces working with him.

In the work with Ra, it seemed that almost nothing that came through any session could upset or shock Elkins, (with a few exceptions journalized in Book Five,) as he was extremely open-minded and had studied the phenomenon very intensely.

Before the contact had started in earnest, over twenty years of previous channeling and UFO research had been done. The channeling had always been done on the conscious level. It was the arrival of Mc Carty into the group that directly provided the catalyst for the unconscious-level Ra contact to be born.

Clearly many would think that these statements supporting the Ra Material’s excellence might be overinflated. But the simple truth of the matter is that Ra was able to answer every question the physicist could produce, no matter how complex or intricate.

The level of intelligence displayed in the contact is so high that it is literally impossible to fathom that Carla could have produced it on her own. The source often makes Elkins appear ridiculously inadequate in his understandings. Among other things, Ra resolved many paradoxes in physics that Elkins had been working on already.

These solutions included a Unified Field theory, which bolstered the findings of a little-known physicist named Dewey Larson. Ra confirmed that each dimension of space also had its own dimension of time. Our current model of physics does not supply a different dimension of time for each level; time is seen as a third-dimensional phenomenon only.

The other main breakthrough in physics that came through the Law of One material has been the cornerstone of this book: the fact that the dimensions themselves are organized into an octave structure.

Just as we have seen, Ra informs us that each dimension corresponds to a sound frequency, a light frequency and a geometric, structural “frequency,” and even the most cutting-edge physicists such as Tony Smith have produced models that indicate almost exactly the same thing.

This author has found that the more research he does and the more he understands his research, the more the Law of One series explains. This is ongoing even into our 2007 re-edit of this book.


It is important to keep in mind that Cayce and Ra are literally the two biggest players in this whole story. Cayce himself had an important incarnation as the Egyptian priest Ra-Ta, who coordinated the efforts of the survivors of Atlantis and helped design the Pyramids and the Hall of Records to preserve their knowledge.

The name “Ra-Ta” is indicated in the Cayce readings as meaning “Sun-Earth.” But clearly the Ra we are talking about here cannot be the same as Ra-Ta. We are told that Ra exists out of linear time altogether in the sixth density, and is millions of years ahead of us in terms of evolution.

In one section of the Cayce readings, a list of holy names are given to invoke for prayer and protection. In this list of names, there is a “Ra” as well as a “Ra-Ta.” This is our only clue in the Cayce readings that there is another force involved besides Ra-Ta himself.

Therefore, if our sixth-dimensional group of entities had the name Ra, the name “Ra-Ta” may well have been taken by their contact on Earth. Again, we are told that “Ta” means “Earth,” so this name could mean “Ra on Earth.”

Cayce must not have been presented with this information about the external Ra because of the effect that it would have on his fragile beliefs in esoterica, and thus this portion of the story was deliberately omitted. The story of Ra-Ta’s activities was simplified in order for it to get through at all.

Near the beginning of the very first session with Ra, they say the following:

The identity of the vibration Ra is our identity. We as a group, or what you would call a social memory complex, made contact with a race of your planetary kind called Egyptians.

[Others from our density made contact at the same time in South America…]

We spoke to one who heard and understood and was in a position to decree the Law of One.”

What better name for this entity than “Ra-Ta,” or “Ra on Earth?

And then, in Session Two, we get a timeline for this arrival, as well as a summarization of some of Ra’s activities:

We are those of the Confederation who eleven thousand of your years ago came to two of your planetary cultures which were at that time closely in touch with the creation of the One Creator…

We attempted to aid them in technical ways having to do with the healing of mind/body/spirit complex distortions through the use of the crystal, appropriate to the distortion, placed within a certain appropriate series of ratios of time/space material.

Thus were the pyramids created.

We will explain what this cryptic quote means in a moment.

In the Cayce readings, Ra-Ta is said to have designed the Great Pyramid with the help of Hermes, an earlier incarnation of Jesus. The timeline given for this being done is approximately eleven thousand years ago, which is perfectly in sync with what Ra tells us here.

Obviously this was another way that Ra worked cooperatively with Ra-Ta on Earth; Ra provided the pure hyperdimensional power necessary to construct the Great Pyramid.

Right away, we can see in the reading that the pyramid is a “crystal appropriate to the distortion [of healing] placed within a certain appropriate series of ratios of time / space material.”

The crystal portion is quite interesting and revealing. The Pyramid is the same shape as the top half of an octahedron, one of the five basic Platonic solids.

These Platonic solids, in turn, form the geometric structures that organize and provide a foundation for each of the different dimensions. The pyramid would then be a way to physically build this “crystal” on Earth.

The “ratios of time / space material” could very well refer to the positioning of the Great Pyramid on Earth, relative to the Global Grid.

Later on in the book, Elkins asks a question about where Ra came from, and they tell him the planet Venus, many millions of years ago in our terms; they have since gone on to the sixth dimension.

They describe how they were seen as luminous beings when they appeared on Earth. Elkins then asked them how they were able to appear on Earth.

Since they were sixth-dimensional beings, how were they able to appear in the third? This will prove to be an interesting answer that will also provide more questions.

Q: How were you able to make the transition from Venus? Did you have to change your dimension to walk upon the Earth?

RA: I am Ra. You will remember the exercise of the wind. [This was a process regarding opening the pathway to higher consciousness.] The dissolution into nothingness is the dissolution into unity, for there is no nothingness.

From the sixth dimension, we are capable of manipulating, by thought, the intelligent infinity present in each particle of light or distorted light so that we were able to clothe ourselves in a replica visible in the third density of our mind / body / spirit complexes in the sixth density.

We were allowed this experiment by the Council which guards this planet.

Again, what Ra seems to be referring to here is that they are taking each “distorted particle of light,” and manipulating its frequency to a lower vibrational level in order that they might become physically visible to us on Earth.

What they are obviously referring to is consciousness units, which have been central to our discussion. Ra then seems to hint at some form of cosmic government or Council that allowed them to do this. Naturally, Elkins jumped on the opportunity to ask about this.

Q: Where is this Council located?

RA: I am Ra. This council is located in the octave, or eighth dimension, of the planet Saturn, taking its place in an area which you understand in third-dimension terms as the rings.

Naturally, it would only make sense that intelligent, hyperdimensional forces that work in our solar system would organize their efforts.

The Cayce Readings did indicate in no uncertain terms that there was life on the other planets in the solar system, only of higher dimensional levels.

What Cayce probably could not have dealt with at the time would have been the truth regarding other physical civilizations, which might have left behind other physical artifacts.

Within only the last few years, researchers such as Richard Hoagland and Thomas Van Flandern have been examining this very evidence; physical artifacts on the planet Mars, and the idea of an artificial explosion of an inhabited planet that is now the asteroid belt.

Understand that this is by no means idle speculation, but hard science. The Martian hypothesis is supported with increasingly convincing pictorial data of structures, including the most recent batch of photographs that provide an even better view of the pyramids there.

And as for Van Flandern, the discovery of a common origin point for all comets and the discovery of asteroids with smaller fragments orbiting around them are two facts that support his “exploded planet hypothesis.”

More recently, an asteroid has been found that shows stratified geological layers, which essentially proves to even the mainstream scientists that it had to have come from a larger planetary body that exploded.

The Ra contact gives us valuable insight into the actual civilizations behind these disasters, if we choose to believe it. Also remember that this book was channeled in 1981, well before the word was out to any significant degree on either the Mars Face or the Exploded Planet Hypothesis.

Q: Are there any people such as you find on Earth on any of the other planets in our solar system?

RA: I am Ra. Do you request space/time present information space/time continuum information?

Q: Both.

[David’s Note: I laughed when I first read Elkins’ response. But I then thought to myself that with a question as serious as this, if they offered you two choices, you would have said “both” too.]

RA: I am Ra. At one time/space, in what is your past, there was a population of third-density beings upon a planet which dwelt within your solar system. There are various names by which this planet has been named. The vibratory sound complex most usually used by your peoples is Maldek.

These entities, destroying their planetary sphere, thus were forced to find room for themselves upon this third density which is the only one in your solar system at their time/space present which was hospitable and capable of offering the lessons necessary to decrease the mind/body/spirit distortions with respect to the Law of One.

Right away, we see that Ra provides the perfect explanation for the “exploded planet hypothesis” of Van Flandern, years before it was ever put before the public. The planet’s explosion was due to the fact that its own people destroyed it.

Q: How did they come here?

RA: I am Ra. They came through the process of harvest and were incarnated through the processes of incarnation from your higher spheres within this density.

[Understand that Ra has made this statement without having explained what harvest was at any point in their work so far.]

Q: How long ago did this happen?

RA: I am Ra. I am having difficulty communicating with this instrument. We must deepen her state. This occurred approximately 500,000 of your years ago.

Q: Is all of the Earth’s human population then originally from Maldek?

RA: I am Ra. This is a new line of questioning, and deserves a place of its own. The ones who were harvested to your sphere from the sphere known before its dissolution as other names, but to your peoples as Maldek, incarnated, many within your Earth’s surface rather than upon it.

The population of your planet contains many various groups harvested from other second-dimension and cycled third-dimension spheres. You are not all one race or back­ground of beginning. The experience you share is unique to this time/space continuum.

Now, we can clearly see that Ra is referring to a form of planet-hopping, which they are calling harvest. They are also implying that most people on Earth had lived on other planets in the past and were harvested from them.

Since harvest was not yet explained, Elkins took the opportunity to try to figure out exactly what it was. Italics are the author’s, for emphasis.

Q: I think that it would be appropriate to discover how the Law of One acts in this transfer of beings to our planet and the action of harvest?

RA: I am Ra. The Law of One states simply that all things are one, that all beings are one. There are certain behaviors and thought-forms consonant with the understanding and practice of this law.

Those who, finishing a cycle of experience, demonstrate grades of distortion of that [higher-dimensional] understanding of thought and action will be separated by their own choice into the vibratory distortion most comfortable to their mind/body/spirit complexes.

This process is guarded or watched by those nurturing beings who, being very close to the Law of One in their distortions, nevertheless, move towards active service.

So, to translate what Ra is saying here, harvest occurs when an entity “finishes a cycle of experience,” which we will soon learn from Ra as being our 25,000 year interval.

At that point, the entity can make a freewill decision to go into a higher dimensional frequency, or a “vibratory distortion most comfortable to [its] own mind/body/spirit complex.”

Furthermore, we learn that this process is not automatic, but rather coordinated by “nurturing beings very close to the Law of One,” or what we would term either extraterrestrials or angelic beings. We continue:

Thus, the illusion is created of light, or more properly but less understandably, light/love. This is in varying degrees of in­tensity. The spirit complex of each harvested entity moves along the line of light until the light grows too glaring, at which time the entity stops.

This entity may have barely reached third density or may be very, very close to the ending of the third-density light/love distortion vibratory complex.

Nevertheless, those who fall within this octave of intensifying light/love then experience a major cycle during which there are opportunities for the discovery of the distortions which are inherent in each entity and, therefore, the lessening of these distortions.

You have to read that paragraph carefully, as the implications of what Ra is saying are vast. An entity could be “very, very close to the ending of the third density,” but if the entity is not ready for the fourth level, the entity must experience another “major cycle” of the third dimension.

Obviously there is a quite good reason to overcome your lessons of third-density polarity and karma!

Q: What is the length, in our years, of one of these cycles?

RA: I am Ra. One major cycle is approximately 25,000 of your years.

There are three cycles of this nature during which those who have progressed may be harvested at the end of three major cycles. That is, approximately between 75 and 76,000 of your years.

All are harvested regardless of their progress, for during that time the planet itself has moved through the useful part of that dimension and begins to cease being useful for the lower levels of vibration within that density.

This paragraph is perhaps the single most important statement we can glean from Ra to point in the direction of the reality of this cycle.

It says that any planet in the cosmos with intelligent life apparently goes through a 25,000-year “major cycle” as part of the functioning mechanism of the universe. This cycle obviously determines when the entities there are “harvested.”

Plus, we learn that no planet has to “put up” with more than three of these cycles. Obviously, third-density life is very hard on a planet; the Maldek entities even went so far as to destroy the entire planet. Luckily, we haven’t done the same thing here.

Q: What is the position of this planet [Earth] with respect to the progression of cycles at this time?

RA: I am Ra. This sphere is at this time in fourth-dimension vibration. Its material is quite confused due to the society memory complexes embedded in its consciousness.

It has not made an easy transition to the vibrations which beckon. Therefore, it will be fetched with some inconvenience.

As you can already see here, and becomes even more obvious later, Ra is saying that we on Earth have almost finished our passage through three major cycles. It is so close to us now that the fourth-dimension vibration is already extremely strong.

Ra speaks of the “inconvenience” in our transition to the higher vibrations; this fits very nicely with the Cayce information regarding Earth Changes and pole shift as we approach these turning points.

Q: Is this inconvenience imminent within a few years?

RA: I am Ra. This inconvenience, or disharmonious vibratory complex, has begun several of your years in your past. It shall continue unabated for a period of approximately thirty of your years.

Since the Ra Material was written in 1981, the target timeframe is 2011-2012. Remember, this was BEFORE all the hubbub about the Mayan Calendar end-date came out… in all five books, Don Elkins never once mentions the Calendar or 2012.

After that point in time, Ra says the inconvenience is over, because the cycle itself has ended. Therefore, some time after Dec. 22, 2012, or thereabouts, the Earth will be 100 percent fourth-dimensional vibration, and all life upon it will be fourth-dimensional or higher.

We can again see how the Ra Material is fitting perfectly with all the data that we have before us. This data correlates perfectly with the ending date of the Mayan Calendar, and vastly increases the knowledge gleaned from the Cayce Readings regarding these cycles.

Q: After this period of thirty years [1981+30 = 2011] I am assuming that this will be a fourth density planet. Is this correct?

RA: I am Ra. This is so.

Q: Is it possible to estimate what percent of the present population will inhabit the fourth-density planet?

RA: I am Ra. The harvesting is not yet, thus, estimation is meaningless.

Wilcock’s own sources indicate that the numbers are still lower than they should be, however many of the great Earth Changes prophesied for 1998 in other readings by Cayce did not come to pass. Hopefully, more progressive spiritual events will occur in our societies to raise the numbers of people who are “harvestable.”

Q: Does the fact that we are in this transition period now have anything to do with the reason that you have made your information available to the population?

RA: I am Ra. We have walked among your people. We remember. We remember sorrow: have seen much.

We have searched for an instrument of the proper parameters of distortion in mind/body/spirit complex and supporting and understanding of mind/body/spirit complexes to accept this information with minimal distor­tion and maximal desire to serve for some of your years.

The answer, in short, is yes. However, we wished you to know that in our memory we thank you.

What we can see from the above paragraph is that the whole reason for a contact like Ra to occur now is to prepare this planet for harvest, or Ascension. This is literally identical to what Ra keeps saying through Wilcock as well.

We are at the most crucial turning point of the entire 75,000-year cycle. Notice that Ra said that 2012 was the completion of the planet’s progress into the fourth density; they did not say that it was the first time that human entities would be able to Ascend. They tell us that the “inconvenience”, or Earth Changes, will last this whole period of time.

And now, we jump ahead to the next quote, where Ra reveals the true scope of the organization and vastness of the multidimensional or extraterrestrial forces that are around us at this time.

Q: Do any of the UFOs presently reported at this time come from other planets, or do you have this knowledge?

RA: I am Ra. I am one of the members of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator. There are approxi­mately fifty-three civilizations, comprising approximately five hundred planetary consciousness complexes in this Confeder­ation.

This Confederation contains those from your own planet who have attained dimensions beyond your third. It contains planetary entities within your solar system, and it contains planetary entities from other galaxies.* It is a true Confederation in that its members are not alike, but allied in service according to the Law of One.

*Ra often uses the word “galaxy” where we would say planetary system. This meaning is listed in the unabridged dictionary but is not in common use.

Interestingly, this is the exact same type of information that Dr. Courtney Brown received in his remote-viewing experiences, even though he had no previous interest in UFOlogy of any kind. He also was not even told consciously what it was that he would be viewing, but still managed to receive accurate data that fit the “target.”

Brown’s data also indicates a “Galactic Federation,” and there are fantastic parallels between what is written in his book Cosmic Voyage and what Ra is telling us here.

So now we can start to understand that there could be a great deal of intelligent life surrounding us and guarding over this harvest. We know that this intelligent life is organized into a “council” or “confederation.”

We also know that we are at the end of three major cycles of 25,000 years, and that the process of “harvest” is now imminent in our future. Now that Elkins has all of this in mind, he asks a question, seeking to know why it would be that the time measurement is so precise.

By all accounts, it is an excellent question, and it will give us far more insight into what Cayce was describing when he said, “the cycling of the Sun through the various spheres of activity.”

Q: The way that I understand the process of evolution is that our planetary population has a certain amount of time to progress. This is generally divided into three 25,000-year cycles. At the end of 75,000 years the planet progresses itself. What caused this situation to come about with the preciseness of the years in each cycle?

RA: I am Ra. Visualize, if you will, the particular energy which, outward flowing and inward coagulating, formed the tiny realm of the creation governed by your Council of Saturn. Continue seeing the rhythm of this process.

The living flow creates a rhythm which is as inevitable as one of your timepieces.

Each of your planetary entities began the first cycle when the energy nexus was able in that environment to support such mind/body experiences. Thus, each of your planetary entities is on a different cyclical schedule as you might call it. The timing of these cycles is a measurement equal to a portion of intelligent energy.

This intelligent energy offers a type of clock. The cycles move as precisely as a clock strikes your hour. Thus, the gateway from intelligent energy to intelligent infinity opens regardless of circumstance on the striking of the hour.

Note that Ra refers to the energy as “outward flowing and inward coagulating.” This is an indication that the Sun itself is a giant, pulsating consciousness unit, existing in all dimensions and pulsating throughout them.

This provides a very tidy explanation for the ‘cycles of the solar activity’ referred to by Cayce. And as we can repeatedly see from Ra, this pulsation takes on a geometric and geographical counterpart.

This pulsating cycle of the consciousness units is so exact, according to Ra in this quote, that it can be precisely timed and measured. This might also be related to the precision of our modern atomic clocks, which we now use as an absolute standard for timekeeping.

We also see from the above statements that each planet, since it occupies a different position in the Solar System, also has a different “cyclical schedule.”

The above excerpt makes it very clear that there is a harmonic order to the movement of large-scale planetary, solar and galactic bodies, an order which determines the length of time that it takes them to move very precisely.

As we move towards the conclusion of this book, we will cite mathematical evidence, including never-before-seen findings of Wilcock’s own, that provide a much firmer basis for this understanding.

In the next excerpt, Elkins tries to obtain more information on exactly how it is that harvest takes place, in terms of the “planet-hopping” we had been discussing.

Q: When graduation occurs at the end of a cycle, and entities are moved from one planet to another, by what means do they go to a new planet?

[Notice that Elkins asks a question in the plural; “entities.” His answer is in the singular: “… totality/beingness.” In other words, the planet’s intelligent life is One.]

RA: I am Ra. In the scheme of the Creator, the first step of the mind/body/spirit/totality/beingness is to place its mind/body/ spirit complex distortion in the proper place of love/light.

This is done to ensure proper healing of the complex and eventual attunement with the totality/beingness complex.

This takes a very variable length of your time/space.

It is important to note that Ra tells us in other places that a mind/body/spirit/complex/totality/beingness is the full summation of a planet worth of beings as one identity.

So to translate this, the individual entities are referred to here as “mind/body/spirit/complex distortions;” they are distorted forms of the whole that are only apparently individual.

What we see is that the whole group consciousness of the planet places its apparent individual entities into “the proper place of love / light” in order to “ensure proper healing.”

After this is accom­plished, the experience of the cycle is dissolved and filtered until only the distillation of distortions in its pure form remains.

At this time, the harvested mind/body/spirit/totality/beingness eval­uates the density needs of its beingness and chooses the more appropriate new environment for either a repetition of the cycle or a moving forward into the next cycle.

This is the manner of the harvesting, guarded and watched over by many.

What we can see here is that it appears that the entire planet of entities chooses what its mass karmic lessons are, or what it needs to learn. If it needs to incarnate as a whole on a different planet as many apparently separate and individual entities, then it will do so.

If it hasn’t fulfilled its evolutionary obligations to, in our case, the fourth density, it might choose to find another third-density planet for “a repetition of the cycle.” And again we are reminded that this whole process is “guarded and watched over by many.”

So what this means is that there are entities in the universe that are powerful enough to guard and watch over an entire planet worth of beings as their group-mind decides what to do in this harvest situation.

Q: When the entity is moved from one planet to the next, is he moved in thought or by a vehicle?

RA: I am Ra. The mind/body/spirit/totality/beingness is one with the Creator. There is no time/space distortion. Therefore, it is a matter of thinking the proper locus in the infinite array of time/spaces.

Our next excerpt of questions shows us that since we are so close to the end of the cycle, our world is almost completely in fourth-density already. The only thing holding it back now is our own consciousness. But once the cycle completes, the changes will be permanent, as Ra has said.

Q: What is the density level of our planet Earth at this time?

RA: I am Ra. The sphere upon which you dwell is third density in its beingness of mind/body/spirit complexes. It is now in a space/time continuum, fourth density. This is causing a some­what difficult harvest.

Q: How does a third-density planet become a fourth-density planet?

RA: I am Ra. This will be the last full question.

The fourth density is, as we have said, as regularized in its approach as the striking of a clock upon the hour.

The space/time of your solar system has enabled this planetary sphere to spiral into space/time of a different vibrational configuration.

[Again, remember Cayce’s line, “the cycle of the Sun’s passage through the various spheres of activity'”in describing this same cycle. We can clearly see the parallels here.]

This causes the planetary sphere to be able to be molded by these new distortions.

However, the thought-forms of your people during this transition period are such that the mind/body/spirit com­plexes of both individual and societies are scattered throughout the spectrum instead of becoming able to grasp the needle, shall we say, and point the compass in one direction.

Thus, the entry into the vibration of love, sometimes called by your people the vibration of understanding, is not effective with your present societal complex. Thus, the harvest shall be such that many will repeat the third-density cycle.

The energies of your Wanderers, your teachers, and your adepts at this time are all bent upon increasing the harvest. However, there are few to harvest.

In our next Ra quote, Elkins has asked if it indeed is true that in our third dimension, “there is actually no past or future, that all is present. Would this be a good analogy?” The answer is surprising.

RA: I am Ra. There is past, present, and future in third density. In an overview such as an entity may have, removed from the space/time continuum, it may be seen that in the cycle of completion there exists only the present.

We, ourselves, seek to learn this understanding. At the seventh level or dimension, we shall, if our humble efforts are sufficient, become one with all, thus having no memory, no identity, no past or future, but existing in the all.

If we look closely at this, we realize that the goal of any entity in the universe is to merge with the One and to lose any sense of individuality or separateness. Ra’s answer reveals that they do indeed have some sense of time, some sense of a forward progression of events, even if it is nowhere near as strict as our own.

Thus, even though they can move through time and see the different potentials, they are not currently exempt from a feeling of linearity in at least some form.

Q: Does this mean that you would have awareness of all that is?

RA: I am Ra. This is partially correct. It is our understanding that it would not be our awareness, but simply awareness of the Creator. In the Creator is all that there is. Therefore, this knowledge would be available.

And now that Ra has explained the seventh density and the one-pointedness of mind therein, Elkins seeks to elicit a similar understanding for what we ourselves are heading into; the fourth density. Ra’s answer should help us start to understand what we have to look forward to in the now very near future.

Q: Thank you. Is it possible for you to give a short description of the conditions in the fourth density?

RA: I am Ra. We ask you to consider as we speak that there are not words for positively describing fourth density. We can only explain what is not and approximate what is. Beyond fourth density our ability grows more limited until we become without words.

That which fourth density is not: it is not of words, unless chosen. It is not of heavy chemical vehicles for body complex activities. It is not of disharmony within self. It is not of disharmony within peoples. It is not within limits of possibility to cause disharmony in any way.

Approximations of positive statements:

  • it is a plane of type of bipedal [humanoid] vehicle which is much denser and more full of life;
  • it is a plane wherein one is aware of the thought of other-selves;
  • it is a plane wherein one is aware of vibrations of other-selves;
  • it is a plane of compassion and understanding of the sorrows of third density;
  • it is a plane striving towards wisdom or light;
  • it is a plane wherein individual differences are pronounced although auto­matically harmonized by group consensus.

In the last line, Ra says that “individual differences are pronounced,” but that the group mind automatically harmonizes these differences. It is clear that the closer you are to approaching true Oneness, the less you have any individual sense of identity.

That would explain why in the seventh density, there is no apparent self-consciousness, only the consciousness of the One. With the next question Elkins asks, we get some insight into the causative forces behind the Earth Changes as we head towards harvest or Ascension.

Q: We are now in the fourth density. Will the effects of the fourth density increase in the next thirty years? Will we see more changes in our environment and our effect upon our environment?

RA: I am Ra. The fourth density is a vibrational spectrum. Your time/space continuum has spiraled your planetary sphere and your, what we would call galaxy, what you call star, into this vibration.

This will cause the planetary sphere itself to electro­magnetically realign its vortices of reception of the in-streaming of cosmic forces expressing themselves as vibrational webs so that the Earth thus be fourth-density magnetized, as you may call it.

This is going to occur with some inconvenience, as we have said before, due to the energies of the thought-forms of your peoples which disturb the orderly constructs of energy patterns within your Earth spirals of energy which increases entropy and unusable heat.

This will cause your planetary sphere to have some ruptures in its outer garment while making itself appro­priately magnetized for fourth density. This is the planetary adjustment.

What Ra is saying here is that the Earth will “electromagnetically realign its vortices of reception” with what is emanating from the Sun. This same realignment is indicated in the Cayce Readings and many other sources as a shifting of the poles.

Elkins’ question specifically asked for events within the next thirty years, not at the end or afterwards. This would fit in well with the Cayce Readings indicating a date for polar shift of approximately 2001 or thereafter.

You will find a sharp increase in the number of people, as you call mind/body/spirit complexes, whose vibrational potentials include the potential for fourth-vibrational distortions.

Thus, there will seem to be, shall we say, a new breed. These are those incarnating for fourth-density work.

There will also be a sharp increase in the short run of negatively oriented or polarized mind/body/spirit complexes and social complexes, due to the polarizing conditions of the sharp delineation between fourth-density characteristics and third-density self-service orientation.

Those who remain in fourth density upon this plane will be of the so-called positive orientation.

Many will come from elsewhere, for it would appear that with all the best efforts of the Confeder­ation, which includes those from your peoples’ inner planes, inner civilizations, and those from other dimensions, the harvest will still be much less than this planetary sphere is capable of comfortably supporting in service.

This last sentence exemplifies the problem that we, as Lightworkers, are still trying to solve in the present. The data about the “sharp increase… of negatively oriented [entities]” is very similar to Cayce’s description of the end of Atlantis, with the battle between the Sons of the Law of One and the Sons of Belial.

It is becoming more and more obvious that great tensions between people are developing, and this answer helps to explain why.

One must then ask, if the harvest is so low, as Ra is indicating, what can we do? Is there anything we can do, and if so, how do we do it? Ra’s insights with regards to the form of the solution are quite interesting.

Q: Is it possible by the use of some technique or other to help an entity to reach fourth-density level in these last days?

RA: I am Ra. It is impossible to help another being directly. It is only possible to make catalyst available in whatever form, the most important being the radiation of realization of oneness with the Creator from the self, less important being information such as we share with you.

Again, Ra defines “catalyst” as the outside circumstances and energies that lead people towards the Light of Everlasting Love; sometimes with subtlety, other times with great intensity.

Earth Changes are a form of intense planetary “catalyst” to get us out of our houses and to start living and cooperating with each other.

We, ourselves, do not feel an urgency for this information to be widely disseminated. It is enough that we have made it available to three, four, or five. This is extremely ample reward, for if one of these obtains fourth-density understanding due to this catalyst then we shall have fulfilled the Law of One in the distortion of service.

We encourage a dispassionate attempt to share information without concern for numbers or quick growth among others. That you attempt to make this information available is, in your terms, your service. The attempt, if it reaches one, reaches all.

We cannot offer shortcuts to enlightenment. Enlightenment is, of the moment, an opening to intelligent infinity. It can only be accomplished by the self, for the self.


With these few lines, we will end this chapter detailing Ra’s insights on our solar cycle. It is made very clear here that even with how low the numbers are for harvest, there are many entities who are just not ready for it yet, and though might seem depressing to us, it is what it is, and we simply need to respect it.

Our focus should really be on those who are on the edge, who are very close to remembering and understanding the truth, so that we might then steer them in the right direction.

Therefore, if even one person makes the harvest as a result of our own efforts, we have succeeded in what we are here to do. And that realization greatly takes off the pressure.

So now, with all that we have uncovered with Ra in this book there is a complete framework to understand this cycle.

The problem, as we have said, is that this type of information does not appear at the outset to be “empirical” or “provable” in the sense that most physical data could be.

However, it appears that this material predates a number of physical discoveries that were made by at least seven or eight years. This therefore adds great weight to the case that can be made for its validity.

In the next chapter, we will start examining the physical evidence that suggests the reality of Ra’s complex statements regarding this Solar Cycle.
