If we take the universe to be only material, evolution is limited to the evolution of matter and energy. But when it comes to man, another possibility is given. And that’s the evolution of consciousness. Man has the possibility to become conscious of his own existence. That gives him the possibility to know the purpose and meaning of life. Man being conscious of his own existence is extremely important to the life of this planet, to the life of the universe.
What happens when consciousness develops and fulfills its potential? The beginning and end come together, just as they do in physical evolution. The seed becomes a tree, the tree grows branches, it flowers, gives fruit, and the fruit give seeds. We come from within the Absolute. Our ultimate evolution is back to the Absolute.
