A question I received: Why did the Earth’s population have to reach seven billion people? Is it to prepare humanity for making the leap to a new state?
My Answer: The entire path humanity has gone through was necessary for just one thing: to bring people to the recognition of evil. This is the point from which correction begins.
The population growth is related to the constant growth of our “will to receive,” or the desire to feel pleasure. This desire has to be divided among billions of people since otherwise it would be too big for each person and impossible to correct. When it is divided over a large number of people, it becomes possible for each person to correct his personal, small egoism. So, it is the level of egoism that determines the world’s population size.
Everything is planned. When there is a possibility that a smaller number of people will carry out an intenser correction, this causes a war. In times of great suffering, people become more sensitive to others and are more willing to make concessions. Correction can then be achieved by a smaller number of people, and therefore a large part of the population dies.
Everything is determined by the level of the will to receive and the need to correct it. This is not decided at the level of our world, but is determined by the Upper Governance.
