	Alan, this suggests the Chaos Factor, which I do
believe in.  However, the only way to get yourself born onto
this physical earth into a physical body is desire.  Without
the desire, you just can't make it.  The catch it, desire for
self-expression is inherent in all beings--its a monadic
characteristic that sooner or later bites us in the butt, so
to speak.  So *all* entities get themselves born into matter
at some point or another.

>And are we not all spiritual entitities to begin with?

	Yes, and even the gods must reincarnate
at some point.
