Question: We get sick and die because the force of vitality runs out. By studying in integral groups, people will constantly have an infinite source of the force of vitality, they will be able to connect to it and be nourished by it, doesn’t this mean that all diseases will disappear and life expectancy will increase?
Answer: The fact that people will gradually stop feeling their body and will see a collection of forces that depict the form of a body and also the form of this whole world is very close, there is no doubt about that. At the same time all the diseases and problems associated with the body, with the family, and with all others will gradually disappear, since everything moves to another level of solution, to the level of forces.
Our world disappears because the infrastructure upon which these forces depict the picture of the world is disappearing, and so eventually it disappears, we will see how together with the world all the problems disappear.
Question: But nevertheless, will people in integral groups live longer?
Answer: I don’t know about intermediate states. A person, of course, will feel that he exists both eternally and wholly to the extent that he feels the upper Light through the group.
It may be that the same thing will happen on the way, according to the levels of approaching these states. But we will undoubtedly feel fewer bodily-related problems. Food and clothing and everything else will be necessary only as much as we need them and not more than that. This means that fashion and advertising will all disappear. Our world will become totally different.
Life expectancy will certainly grow, but I don’t think that it will much more than 100 years.
I have visited Switzerland many times, especially very small towns and villages. There it is quite common for people to reach the age of 100. It is one thing to be 90 and another to be 95. You look at them and you see an ordinary person, a strong old man cutting the grass in a steep field. I can’t imagine how he can stand on the slope and what is more cut the grass.
So today, leading a normal lifestyle a person can easily reach this age.
But I don’t think we need more than that. The Bible too, by the way, speaks about the “70 years of a man’s life.” If life has a special purpose, then it will be until 100-120. So generally speaking we will not cross these limits by much and there is no need for that.
