(Even the word 'force' is a prejudgment!)
It is so much against the spirit of this age, that I find it very difficult really to interpret things by my belief that this is ultimately a world of conscious beings - and not a world of abstract forces.
At the top of everything is the intention of God - but it seems clear that there are a multitude of other conscious beings - some incarnate, others not; with varying degrees of consciousness and agency; and some are allied with God's plans while other are pursuing their own agendas - or have banded together to pursue another agenda.
This seems to be a world in which it is difficult to learn and progress towards divinity; and a world in which conflict is sometimes a necessity (and in which there are no guarantees of success).
I feel that the divine intention is that Albion should awaken from his slumbering nightmare sleepwalk to self-damnation and death; and I am sure that making this kind of thing happen (or making it possible) is way too complicated for me to understand and that the most important factors are imperceptible.
Yet, for all the unknowns and uncertainties, the ultimate situation is one of conscious beings in cooperation and in conflict and in pursuit of agendas and so should not be impossible to discover.
The difficulty is not that such things can't be known; but that they are the kind of thing which modern people such as myself have great difficulty in discovering due to our trained blindness and insensitivity, and large capacity for wishful thinking, self-deception and despair...
Apart from that, it should be easy!
It used to be called the Zeitgeist, and it is a real thing - as real and significant as the morale of an infantry unit in frontline warfare.
I get peeks, hear snatches and feel hunches concerning the spirit of this time; but I really would love to know more about what is going-on unseen, unheard and imperceptibly.
