Re: Makalu's statement: "...cant prevent division but also cant prevent the continual mixing of the races and the eventual one olive-skinned race." I'm not sure this "eventual one olive-skinned race" is a foregone conclusion. Which begs the question: Will world peace and the hig...

Jim, i don't disagree with the point you're trying to make but i think the "system" can accommodate more souls than what you've listed. sorry i dont have time right now to look for references in the papers but i think there are seven group resurrection halls on mansonia #1, one at the end ...
