evolving. This is not a logical contradiction or chaos but a statement of
the existence of some capacity that is completely transcendent of human

choice exists because the keynote for human evolution is "experience promotes
growth." Through choosing we learn how to become conscious creators for
good. The karma of limitation but there are other realms of cause and
