This question is related to What happens next when you finally have everything you want? but I think the focus is different enough to justify another question.
If we ever reach a point where everyone on Earth knows about The Law of Attraction, then what happens next as far as the human race is concerned?
Does humanity evolve to the next level of the game, and we suddenly discover we are beginners again at something more difficult?
Or do we just live relatively boring (but happy) lives launching desires and then coming into alignment with them (and enjoying the subsequent manifestations) until the end of time?
Or do we all go and incarnate onto some other planet where the dominant species still believes in lack and we all have fun again as a group consciousness in turning the ship around? :)

Obviously there's no definitive answer to this (that we're aware of). If I had to I'd probably choose your first suggestion - evolving to the next level of the game so we continue to learn and grow.

I like to think that we are so very spoiled for choice for our future incarnations - if that's your choosing :) I'm only just getting a grasp on this one. I think as a "Race" we are learning from our mistakes and are making huge leaps towards a more compassionate life style.But on the other hand, "Who" really knows what happened to Atlantis? Love and Light
When we all know of the law of attraction, The journey will still continue.the road might be better paved and the vehicles more efficient. but the journey remains.And that's why we are here "for the ride"

For me it will be at last a conscious CHOICE in what do you prefer to experience.
Yes, some will incarnate on other planets, and yes, some will stay here to assist others. You know ALL choices are valid, ALL choices are possible, so what will YOU choose ?
You know it's finally getting to a point to stop asking around for other peoples answers and really start diving in for your OWN answers. Don't get me wrong, you've got to ask questions to get the answers, but to ask questions "Is money a false measure of success?" Don't get me wrong, I don't want to attack anyone, but come on. What do YOU think? Is money a false measure of success to YOU? I think it's obvious to many people that the answer is yes, so why ask these questions? For me always the ultimate question is WHY? Why do some people think that? What beliefs do we, as a society, hold regarding money and abundance? How does it affect our lifes?
So really, how many answers regarding manifestation and Law of Attraction do we need? Don't take thie personally Stingray, as for I see you are really giving something to this community, but when I put "Law of Attraction" in the search bar I've got almost 200 hits for that!
I don't want to sound like an asshole, but really people, you should start reflecting on the answers that are already here. I know people just have a light in their head post a question, read the answer, but never really reflect on the answer. Then, few days later. they post the same question in a different form. Again, I don't want to attack anyone or make him feel bad or me better or smarter than everybody else, but I know that this kind of going in circles can get you confused. I was asking so many questions, but the truth is that I needed only few of the answers. Most of them I never reflected upon or considered relevant. So, I'm asking all of you, before you post questions make the research wasn't it already answered before, because if Stingray, you have now over 7000 points and still ask questions about Law of Attraction, where does it leave the 'newbies'. They think that if you're so experienced and ask those questions then they should do it too. Well most of those answers are already available, you just have to go deeper. That's why I stopped posting answers, because what took me an hour to write sometimes, was asked 2 days later by the same people in a different form.
My point is to really think about the questions before you ask them, and when you do, put your own answers underneath (just like you here).
I wanted to share my point of view on this subject with people in this community for some time now. Just think for the answers you might get BEFORE you post the question, because you know what you're gonna do in the end? You're gonna make all the people who have got some interesting answers NOT to share them with you. Why? Because you won't reflect on them, so why should they waste their time giving them to you? You might not agree with me, but 30-40% of questions on this website are copies of different questions that have already been answered, and maybe even more. Maybe someone should really start filtering questions before they get posted and link to the answers that are already there, I don't know.
Ok, that's enough of me complaining like a little bi***. Cheers :)

I think the word boring is the most important part of this question. Why else would we choose to incarnate?
Presumably, before we chose to live this life, we lived in a state where there were no limitations, where we were free of pain, and we understood that everything was one. Essentially, we left heaven to come here, and forgot everything we knew.
The only reason I could think of why we would do that is boredom.
In the movie Star Trek: Generations, there is a scene near the end of the movie where Captain Kirk is riding a horse, in what was called the Nexus (Heaven, essentially):
Kirk is riding his horse hard over the countryside and across a stream, through a thicket of trees, and finally out onto a rolling plain. There is a large ravine up ahead. Kirk sees it and smiles tightly. He spurs his horse faster toward the ravine. The horse is tearing along, comes up to the edge of the precipice, and makes a daring leap to the other side. Horse and rider land together and Kirk spurs the horse on. But as he rides, we begin to see a change come over him- a look of doubt crosses his face. Something's not right. He slows the horse to a trot, and then to a complete stop. He sits there for a moment and frowns, turns and looks back at the ravine, which is now a fair distance away. Something about that jump is nagging at him. He turns his horse around and then digs in his heels. The horse breaks into a gallop, racing back toward the ravine. Kirk grips the reins tight in his hands and then the horse makes the leap across yet again. This time when Kirk lands, he brings his horse to an immediate stop. We can see on his face that something is very wrong. He turns and stares at the ravine with a mixture of shock and sadness on his face. In the distance, Picard can be seen approaching on a horse of his own. He stops next to Kirk. There is a long, quiet moment as the two men sit there side by side. Kirk is introspective as he sorts through his feelings. KIRK (re: ravine) I must have made this jump fifty times, and every time it scared the hell out of me. But not this time. (beat) Because it's not real. A quiet beat. Kirk turns and looks toward a particular hill in the distance, shading his eyes against the bright sun. Picard follows his gaze and we can now see the distant figure of a woman walking her horse. PICARD (re: woman) Antonia? KIRK (nods) She's not real either, is she? Nothing here is. Nothing here matters. All euphoria is now gone from Kirk. It's a moment of self-revelation. He glances around. KIRK It's kinda like orbital skydiving. Exciting for a few minutes, but in the end, you haven't really done anything. You haven't made a difference.

Hi Stingray, Your question is assuming that there are not other souls who are waiting to incarnate. What if there were billions of souls who have never had this physical experience. Then the game can go on for a long long time. If there is only a limited number of souls then I imagine that it is possible for everyone to get there eventually. However even if you get "the law of attraction in this life" you can choose to come into the world again with a blank slate and start over. It can go on forever. World without end.

When everyone in the whole world becomes masters of the law of attraction we will all be in a state of bliss. I say this because I feel like ultimately the law of attraction is mastered when we feel love, joy and goodness about ourselves. We attract with our state of being. We have a saying that says 'be careful what you wish for you just might get it' and to me this means that happiness and contentment are the choices to be made first because there is no guarantee that what you are wanting will bring you happiness and joy. This is the lesson of the law of attraction and once everyone realizes this the world will be a much happier place. To me, 'knowing' about the law of attraction is knowing how to be happy.

I think I will go with your first suggestion that when we all know about the Law of Attraction, then we will find that we are only beginners at this game of manifesting and coming in alignment with our desires.
I think you can know about the Law of Attraction for years and years and still not come close to applying it in a way which is close to its real potential.
So, in my opinion, we cannot master the real potential of the Law of Attraction in this lifetime as that is not why we came here. We came from the non-physical where we all know the real potential of the Law of Attraction and this is where we are all going to go when we die.
Life is just a learning curve when it comes to the Law of Attraction and that is the way it will stay for beings that want to have the physical experience on earth.

well even if you have everything you want it does not make you happy. loa is one thing but enlightement is another.Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."Luke 18:22 When Jesus heard this, he said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
"Here on this seat my body may shrivel up, my skin, my bones, my flesh may dissolve, but my body will not move from this seat until I have attained Enlightenment, so difficult to obtain in the course of many kalpas".
Cessation of feelings and perceptionsThe Buddha also rediscovered an attainment beyond the dimension of neither perception nor non-perception, the "cessation of feelings and perceptions." This is sometimes called the "ninth jhāna" in commentarial and scholarly literature.
About this, it is said: "Seeing with discernment, his fermentations were totally ended. He emerged mindfully from that attainment. On emerging mindfully from that attainment, he regarded the past qualities that had ceased & changed: 'So this is how these qualities, not having been, come into play. Having been, they vanish.' He remained unattracted & unrepelled with regard to those qualities, independent, detached, released, dissociated, with an awareness rid of barriers. He discerned that 'There is no further escape,' and pursuing it there really wasn't for him."
Someone attaining this state is an anagami or an arahant. In the above extract, the Buddha narrates that Sariputta became an arahant upon reaching it.
“I also saw both the light and the vision of forms. Shortly after the vision of light and shapes disappear. I thought, ‘What is the cause and condition in which light and vision of the forms disappear?' Then consider the following: ‘The question arose in me and because of doubt my concentration fell, when my concentration fell, the light disappeared and the vision of forms. I act so that the question does not arise in me again.'” “I remained diligent, ardent, perceived both the light and the vision of forms. Shortly after the vision of light and shapes disappear. I thought, 'What is the cause and condition in which light and vision of the forms disappear?' Then consider the following: 'Inattention arose in me because of inattention and my concentration has decreased, when my concentration fell, the light disappeared and the vision of forms. I must act in such a way that neither doubt nor disregard arise in me again.'”
As the concentration becomes stronger, the feelings of breathing and of having a physical body will completely disappear, leaving only pure awareness. At this stage inexperienced meditators may become afraid, thinking that they are going to die if they continue the concentration because the feeling of breathing and the feeling of having a physical body has completely disappeared. They should not be so afraid and should continue their concentration in order to reach "full concentration" (jhāna).
so now you know the next step. experience and enjoy.
