*******What an animal is able to do----like a bird able to fly---- wasn't
worked out BY the creature but FOR the creature---- it was given its form
by Nature, just inherits it from the world. WE are given nothing because
we've graduated to the point where we can do it for ourselves, and therefore
are expected to.
Man has reached the end of his childhood. We went through an animal-like
existence before the earth state, and in this world were ready to move on to
the Human stage. We were thus given the Ego, the drop of the Divine Spirit
that enables us to no longer be creation, but creators.
We're born "helpless" because we don't need [that kind of] help anymore.
