This is a rather new idea, but I have a great feeling that material and spiritual go together. I always thought that only the spiritual matters, but what would we be if we would be just ideas, just thoughts? We would be something existing in a big black (or blue?) world.
If I think about it, we would not be able to fight, kill, die or cheat. There would be no books, we wouldn’t need to read because there would be no jobs to work for. And there would be no capitalism or communism, only ideas floating somewhere.
So maybe this material world is a limit, but it also allows us to be more.
But then again, maybe my human trained mind doesn’t allow me to see further than what I know and am.
