Reading the early writings, they clearly thought WWII was Destruction.
In the Divine Decree dated 1949, it says Destruction, "within a year or so". Therefore, let us say 1950-51, which I would have to agree with you was when Shiva was "revealed" and the old Knowledge ditched.
I would love to know too. It will only be through the honesty of the organization and our sharing of infomation that the truth will be known.
- Was it consciously invented, agreed and named by way of an explanation for the failure? Therefore, was the metaphorical "Destruction" theory embraced back then? "Oh, look ... a new Spirit!"
Did he pop out "Alien-style" like out of John Hurt one day at the dinner-table and take over the show?
Destruction for my generation was mid-1980s, then to mid-1990s, i.e. 50 years for Destruction and 50 years for Creation ... which was extended to 60 years, as failure became obvious.
- Was there a similar change in the Yagya mid-80s as there was in 1950 or 1976? Was it discussed openly or only in Madhuban and amongst the SS?
May be it was the Destruction of the pure, innocent Orthodox Yagya, e.g. The Golden and Silver Age of service in the West and the beginning of the Corporate PR spin, commercial and executive training style Yagya, e.g The Copper Age of service in the West.
If so, 2007 and all this legal aggression probably signifies the start of the Iron Age of service in the West.
