Answer: Yes, it is rising, but this ascent is modular because, in fact, humanity is descending. However, it descends on purpose in order to understand the emptiness of our world.
This is the revelation of truth, and it is thus an ascent. There is greater and greater revelation of the upper light. On one hand, we feel that we are more developed, and on the other hand, lower and emptier. However, this is a good place.
Now we are entering a new stage when the next generation comes to Kabbalah. These people do not want to conquer the world. They are satisfied with little things, they just need a computer and nothing else. It means a lot. A completely new human being has appeared in our world.
