FACTOR # 10. And thus there is life.

Life is there from the first moment, for the order is the hallmark of life. The order evolves as follows:

(1) From energy to matter
(2) From matter to animation
(3) From animation to reaction
(4) From reaction to thought

Thus, life evolves from raw energy to thought through purposeful activity.

KHTK FACTOR # 10: And thus life evolves.



The ultimate stage of thought is enlightenment, which is the recognition of its own nature. The moment thought recognizes its own nature it is enlightened. What the next stage is going to be? That answer is yet to come.
