Theos-World brief comment regarding Yugas

The Kali Yuga that we're in, for the Fifth Root Race (the current
human stock), started 3,102 BC.  (See THE SECRET DOCTRINE, I, 66,
II, 435.)

The different Root Races of Humanity each have their own Yugas,
and they overlap:

The overlap goes down to the littlest subraces:

This means that it's possible that while the bulk of humanity is
going through a dark age, and we live amidst them, we don't
necessarily have to partake of it.  We can potentially experience
life on a slightly higher subplane of the physical, that
corresponding to a higher type of humanity.  This would be
archived, I think, *inwardly*, by our consciousness, our
awareness, our inner faculties, and not necessarily be some
aspect of our body or personality, something objective that could
be quantified and measured by priest, psychologist, or scientist.
