Duality is not resolved by buffing up the apparent separate world.
It happens at the level of individual insight.
No one said there will not be dukkha-- there certainly will be.
In particular, there will always be dukkha on earth and there will be birth, old age, sickness and death.
However, during the next two thousand years, humanity will act in less self-centered ways, and also be blessed with an incredible, seemingly infinite amount of inormation that is freely available, technology, and great ease of communications, and a sense of equality and brotherliness. Hence, we are entering a golden age for humanity. Really, it's going to be a great time. It will not, however, be without fault or problems. This is samsara, after all. This is simply a time where are good qualities will shine more and people will do actions based on love and equality rather than so many power moves.
It's important for people to know because this transition might challenge us in areas and this energy will be especially amplified now. If we don't change to more harmonious views, it creates a stuck in the mud resistance for us in a rapidly changing environment which effects our energy very negatively, that negativity causes a problem for ourselves and others.
