Why have men created such fixed things as languages?... It's so deliberately narrow and limited. And I think that's what abolished in man the possibility of intuition, because...
He is forced to become so narrow in order to make himself understood. You feel you could be sitting in front of a genius and have no means to communicate, except like this (gesture above the head of a communication on a higher plane).
They are wondering how to communicate with other solar systems.... But our very way of thinking stems from our form, it's because we count one-two-three-four-five with our fingers, so we say one-two-three-four-five. Others use other words, but if five objects are put together they understand. But can dolphins count, for instance? They have no hands, no feet – (laughing) they only have one-two-three-four-five dolphins!
It would be interesting to know.
And nothing allows us to postulate that out there in those other systems, billions of light-years away from us, they will have the same form as we do or an analogous form. They may be balls, they may be all kinds of things!
There is only one thing, ONE vibration that seems to be really universal: the Vibration of Love. I am not saying its manifestation, no, nothing of the sort! But the something which is pure Love. That seems to me to be universal.
But as soon as you try to express it, it's over.
The vibrations of the beings out there must be rather identical to ours?
I don't know... I don't know.
Why should the Lord repeat Himself?
The forms are different, of course, but the vibrations?
But I tell you, only that Vibration seems essential and primordial enough to be really universal.
That Vibration which is both the need and the joy to unite.
And deep within it, there is an identity of vibration – the RECOGNITION of an identity of vibration.
