Shells are containers like our bodies. That's it. Grant is
mild compared to "The Master Bertiaux" ...
What is this doctrine supposed to be about anyhow? In the Tree
of Jacob's Ladder which I have had endorsed by a latter-day
Jewish 'Hasid as 100% compatible with their version of Kabala
the sephira Daath usually depicted in the center of an Abyss
disappears whenever a [rising] shift in awareness/ consciousness
occurs and becomes the foundation or Yesod of the next level
up. I would guess that this goes way beyond our human
"evolution" - don't like this word as I prefer to think in
terms of "development". Just my 02 pennyworth.
