This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

Passing through all stages

Some suggest that each being simply passes through all stages of development, from mineral to vegetable to animal to human and then beyond. This seems to us again to be an idea stemming from the need to see all paths as uniform, equal, and linear according to the paradigm of materialistic evolution. But again, this would be absurd, especially if we imagine all beings as unique, and that to truly pass through all of these modalities would be a process that could continue indefinitely. Yet at the same time, we can see that the human being comprises in himself all of these possibilities, and does in fact pass through them in each single lifetime, as embryology suggests.
