Thanks, of course, yes, according to the teaching, there is only so far that one
could reach, no matter how high, in the system we are presently in on this
planet. I was only speaking from the point of view of the infinite progress of
humanity, such as that described, from planet to planet, from solar system to
solar system, and so on and on, in an endless series of manvantaras, and
prayalas, and rounds, and races in them all, after all the ones of this
particular system are long since gone through and experienced and terminated --
since we are eternal while every one of these cyclic processes have both a
beginning and an ending.
