What is the abandonment of life? Killing the will to choose between the material gains. We have common consciousness, having common evolution. Did evolution leave space for something other than matter? Is there a conception of the soul that eternally recur, though historically? Something that lasts between the birth, an immanent part of spirit circles the existence.
The evolution is a slow but gradual process how matter evolved into a shape and form that could navigate the space around. Is it there a reward associated with nature which has delivered what could be called the spirit? The spirit that pervades the cosmos in terms of (a) knowledge (b) existence in time-space. The knowledge is stored in the one Akasa and the akasa has time and space piercing it into infinity. It is from this common consciousness of evolution that man has been made aware of the cosmos and then he must pervade the cosmos scaling both time and space.
The spirit is the primordial sea in which lingers on the knowledge and with that knowledge is the necessity of occupation of time and space. So as I occupy time-space, I draw from the common pool the knowledge. So spirit is associated with knowledge. The more I draw on this knowledge the more I become cosmic.
