Transition between Earth and Future Jupiter

From Anthroposophy

The Earth rounds perspective provides a view on the Conditions of Life and Form (CoL, CoF) after our current fourth mineral CoL and CoF will have concluded with the Seventh Epoch. See Schemas FMC00.057B and FMC00.298.

This is relevant because as Man spiritualizes, humanity will develop further beyond the purely mineral. In the Book of Revelation the next CoF corresponds to the seven bows or vials - see Schema FMC00.258.

At the end of Earth evolution, there will be Unification of the human race by Christ before the pralaya and transition to Future Jupiter. The Christ will be like a group soul made up of all compressed spiritual fruits of all previous incarnations of all human beings, that is: the collective of all spiritualized higher selves (see Man's higher triad) that were spiritualized, will be united into a spiritual body. (1914-07-16-GA155 below, and see also Unification and Second Adam)

Schema FMC00.057B provides a context sketch: the end of the seventh epoch concludes the fourth mineral CoL, then three more CoL follow.

It will permeate the totality of human souls, who will rise out of the corpse of the Earth, out of the earthly dross. The Christ Being, together with the totality of human souls, ascends further into the spiritual realms, in order later to come to the next incorporation of the Earth, which in Spiritual Science we call Future Jupiter

In his writings on the Phantom (Ch 5.), Maximilian Rebholz writes:

And this process of reunification continues through the fact, that at the end of earthly evolution, the Christ will unite all these thought-phantoms, which surround the earth as "spiritual haze structures", into a single form, from which - after passing through the Pralaya - the archetypal image of Future Jupiter would appear.…

and he quotes from 1914-07-16-GA155 as follows:

and at the end of the ages the remains of our Earth incarnations will stand there … all the phantom-like beings… like a mighty tableau. … and what do they come to, taken as a whole? Because Christ unites them all … the remains of the single incarnations are all compressed together. … Compress what is rarefied and you will get density. Spirit also becomes dense, and so our collective Earth-incarnations are united into one spiritual body.

Here follows the extract of that lecture, well worthwhile to study and contemplate:

At the end of the Earth period .. .. at the end of the ages the remains of our Earth incarnations will stand there like a mighty tableau if we have not taken into us the living Christ.

...

Because Christ unites them all — Christ who belongs to all mankind in the present and in the future — the remains of the single incarnations are all compressed together. Every human soul lives in successive incarnations. From each incarnation certain relics or remains are left, as we have described. Further incarnations will leave other remains, and so on, up to the end of the Earth period. If these relics are permeated by Christ, they are compressed together. Compress what is rarefied and you will get density. Spirit also becomes dense, and so our collective Earth-incarnations are united into a spiritual body. This body belongs to us; we need it because we evolve onwards to Future Jupiter, and it will be the starting-point of our embodiment on Future Jupiter. At the end of the Earth period we shall stand there with the soul — whatever the particular karma of the soul may be — and we shall stand there before our earthly relics which have been gathered together by Christ, and we shall have to unite with them in order to pass over with them to Future Jupiter.
