Answer: If we connect as one global group, then everyone experiences everything that one of its members, or the entire group, goes through. Therefore, we are incorporated in one another and go through all these states quickly. In terms of speed, such a development of many groups together differs qualitatively from the development of one group, not to mention a single individual.
Although the changes seem to be indirect, they are included in everyone and serve as preparation for us. So suddenly, I have thoughts and feelings that others already have experienced and thus, they evoke new states within me.
It’s similar to how in our world we learn from one another: A child born in the 21st century uses the experience of all the generations that preceded him. So, it is very beneficial and worthwhile to be connected as strongly and as closely as we can since it shortens the way significantly. Today, nature simply demands this.
