The pyramid is an example of what we are. It is the shape of what we are. It is the lesson that must be seen and understood. It is the wisdom of the ages passed down for us to hold. So when did we forget this wisdom and why are there so many without it?
Take and examine the number of souls on this planet. If you look at 50 years ago, you would see far fewer souls, as a matter of fact, only half. If you look 200 years ago, you would again see far less souls, as only one quarter of those here now were sharing this Earth. But if you chart the long history of human population since the end of the last ice age, the number of returning souls and the adding of new souls would have a very consistent and uneventful accumulation for the first 11,500 years of modern history (post ice-age) and we would see that the old souls returning would outnumber the entering new souls by a wide margin. This should have made it easy to live as the opportunity for wisdom was in abundance.
As the population grew ever so slowly, there were always many old souls within the population and for the longest time they outnumbered the entering new souls greatly. So this must have produced a time of great wisdom and learning.
Modern day does not reflect the days of old when the old souls outnumbered the new souls. One would be surprised, and find difficult to digest the image of what the population explosion has done for the new soul to old soul ratios. What was once in ancient (and somewhat recent times) a ratio largely in favor of the old soul, has flipped and now old souls are greatly and dangerously out numbered.
During the first 3,000 years since the end of the last ice age (10,000-7,000 BC) the same 5-10 million souls were long time returns and so for these many years, the number only doubled making the number of new souls in each generation few and far between. This must have been a time of great learning and understanding as the old souls accrue wisdom and experience to share.
In the next 2,000 years (7,000-5,000 BC) the population doubled again to 20 million. And again, each generation carries the slightest of burdens by the entering new souls and they should easily be able to maintain a stable environment for learning.
And then, the following 1,500 years (5,000-3,500 BC) saw the next doubling of our population to 40 million. The numbers are still clearly in favor of the old souls as each generation would only see ½ million new souls. This would mean 20 old souls were here for every new one being added.
It was not until another 1,500 years (3,500-2,000 BC) had gone by until the population doubled again to 80 million, but continuing a favorable ratio of old souls to the new being added. And for thousands of years, the new souls were delicately and moderately peppered into the population.
So finally we reach the Greek philosophers at 500 BC and another doubling has occurred to 160 million and over a 1,500 year period again, a slighter number of souls are being added to a comparatively strong base of older souls.
Then at the time of Christ, in the first century AD, the population just 500 years later stood at 250 million. Even still, the number of old souls remains strong relative to our current age.
Once again, 1,500 years later during the time of Martin Luther (1,500 AD), the population again doubled to 500 million. The adding of souls has been steady for nearly 12,000 years. Less than 1 in 10 of the souls today is from before the time of Luther. But during this time (in 1,500 AD), 1 in 10 souls were over 6,000 years old and 1 in 3 was a soul from the time of Pythagoras.
