BLIND chance could never on its own have produced a self-conscious thinking human being, nor would it have any reason for doing so.
Because for the random neo-Darwinist evolution machinery, an underlying intelligence is not necessary.
But intelligence, whatever one calls the force, undeniably exists. The paradoxes of self-consciousness evident in human nature are challenging to materialism—especially the concept of personal responsibility.
But just like every caterpillar’s solo struggle to grow wings and fly, with the progressive development of awareness of truth, and individual spiritual growth, H. P. Blavatsky wrote:
“the true Adept must become,
he cannot be made.”
