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.

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