< Teacher 5 > I (Kuthumi) have had many, many incarnations on Earth and one of the most memorable that I had was approximately 500-600 B.C. I was known back then as the philosopher called Pythagoras, a Greek philosopher. It was a very interesting lifetime because back then in this land of Greece there was so much changing in its own consciousness. A new civilization was coming to life preparing for the Christos era of humanity.

< Teacher 5 > It is interesting because at the very time that I was Pythagoras the philosopher, was also the time on Earth where Buddha was embodied, where Buddha was beginning his energy. It was also about the same time where Tobias was on Earth. You see, we, as humans and as groups, develop patterns and then we follow these patterns. We continue to work with them until those very patterns are ready to evolve and transform. And then we move through the old energy into the new.

< (Next) 12 > History is one of the greatest fiction of all times, because history, well, your history, your history of your incarnations, is really not. As Kuthumi pointed out, he was really not Pythagoras. It's the lineage, perhaps, the cousin or brother of his soul, but really wasn't Kuthumi, and he wasn't Pythagoras or Balthazar or any of the others purported to be. That's a linear progression of the spirit, and true spirit doesn't progress linearly. There's an association, you could say, with those aspects of the soul - cousins, a familiarity, and indeed, some bleed-through, because they came from the same soul source - but as Ah-Kir-Rah pointed out to Kuthumi, it's really not you.
