@RTP Yeah this one in particular resonates profoundly, as if reality itself is a living entity explaining to its inhabitating time-space limited creatures what the future holds:

"Transpersonal, interdimensional, or extraterrestrial (ET) event

“There is going to be a clear distinct divide and a restructuring of society with the assistance of ET consciousness. The lower vibrational humans are going to be phased out and replaced.”
