<2>The evolutionary process of going from
plants to animals, and eventually to humans, was achieved. <3>However,
the entire first chapter of Genesis in the Bible is a
description of creation in the state of planning and thinking. The
real creation as a manifested world starts later in chapter 2 of

unit consciousnesses to human form as they were

<7>After these seven periods in which
God finished planning the
creation, He saw the process of
evolution and was very pleased with it. After He would create
it, it would be self-sustaining and He did not have to interfere in
its process very frequently. So He could rest and become a witness

God formed man of the
dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the
breath of life; and man became a living soul.
<9>When the first expression of awareness
appeared as a sound vibration, "The
Word," time was perceived. When this manifested universe started
to be created, the reality of space became understood, and the
atom was built.
<10>In Sanskrit, the
atom (anu) is called "avidya"
meaning "ignorance." This same
atom in the Bible
is called "the dust of the ground" which is the
atom in the first stages and also can be called the "cosmic
dust." Man did not have the same body as we know it today. His
body was made more of psychic and spiritual factors.
<11>However, he had many basic things in common
with the man of today. He had a Soul (he was a unit
consciousness) which had a unit mind (the three gunas). This
unit being resided in the ethereal factor (spirit), but he also
had a material body consisting of the four other elements,
namely, aerial, luminous, liquid, and solid. <12>The
four-element-material body can only link itself to the psychic
(spirit) or ethereal body (unit Soul and its ethereal factor)
with some fine element. This fine element in the Bible is
symbolized by "the breath of life," which is also called

(raja guna) from the
Soul. It can be found in
fresh air and is even more necessary for survival than oxygen. It is

is a living thing that can be controlled, directed and used for many
purposes in human life. It is the

evolutionary process, and the human,
God guides the
consciousnesses. With the attraction of the external world (Maya)
-- and because of the
ignorance of man of his Divinity as "'I
am' one with the 'I AM'"
-- he becomes a slave of his illusion that he is a separate being in
the whole universe, and he becomes more and more lost because of the
impulses of his desires and attachments to the external world.
<15>Only after many lifetimes he reaches a point where he
realizes that there should be more in life than this heedless
pursuance of the lower nature which brings so much suffering.
<16>That is when he starts searching for more
meaningful realities than these unsatisfying, impulsive desires,
which are the root of all suffering.
That is when he will be helped and be shown the way to salvation,
