Even a rock is individual if you can pick it up and take it home, and even
if it can't be moved and it's stuck somewhere it may be unlike the material
it is stuck in and in that way be individual. Pull up a plant by it's root,
look at it, it's individual. The point is that while mankind on its
downward arc through mental, astral, and finally into physical existence is
reaching toward individualization, which on this fourth globe is at its
peak, so too is mankind reaching away from individualization and towards
unity on the upward arc through lesser and lesser degrees of matter until we
reach the seventh globe where we are the most homogeneous.
