Question 7

[1516] Question 7: "Is man the product of the natural development of living beings, and does ze differ from the mammals only in the manner as the mammals differ from the plants, or does ze belong to a kind of 'overnature'?"

[1517] Answer: The natural development of everything that exists is decisively based on the divine order, since this specifies the possibilities of all development and contains the rules that constitute our world. These rules are also subject to a development process, since our world is an open system, into which substances and references enter and from which they escape again. This ongoing exchange is crucially influenced in the universe by L and the divine instances, without which it would not exist. [1518] If one keeps this in mind concerning nature, then man is the product of the natural development of living beings. But then ze cannot belong to a kind of "overnature". Ze holds indeed a top position in our world, but also does not approximately touch a divine instance, or even L. Man is part of nature. Zis creative achievement, based solely on zer, is so strongly facilitated by the divine instance responsible for our world that only a marginal intrinsic value belongs to it, which by no means justifies to establish a border between culture and nature. [1519] If anything, a very simpleminded concept of nature justifies to speak of "overnature". In man there are completely different substances and references than in the animals, which again have other ones over the plants. A comparison necessarily is flawed here. The reflectivity of man has no adequate equivalent in the animals, the perceptual apparatus of animals has none in the plants. Only a very shallow consideration gives at all sense to the comparison. [1520] The question is extended by the posing of the question how man will develop. Man will first of all solve all fundamental problems that are of high relevance for zer. Hunger, poverty, wars, violence, diseases, aging and all the low developed that has no utility will be the first to disappear. Evil will be still for quite a while of relevance, until it also plays no longer a noteworthy role. [1521] The differences between the conditions of life of humans will become, except for the occasional one, less and less, where a flat hierarchy contributes to. One will develop technologies that allow everybody to possess great knowledge. One will be more individually considered and furthered in accordance with zis inclinations and abilities. Some day one will proceed to design zis life form and lebensraum (in space) oneself. [1522] New dimensions will be opened up and man will integrate any technology convenient to zer in zerself. It will be travelled and communicated by (instant) references. The unity with L will increase, since everybody wants it. One will be able to transfer targetedly contents of awareness to other units, which can assist one and with which one can network oneself. L will allow to contact other worlds, such as those of the dead.
