Interestingly, the below pictorial quote and short article from “The 9th Arcturian Council” and the article “What is the Fifth Dimension?,” appeared separately and from different sources today (March 9, 2018 both on the same day), and basically say the same thing in describing this dimensional shift which is, 1) logical, and 2) from my “gut feel,” the Truth. ~ Don
