No lava flow stops its advance just to spare a forest.
No supernova limits its expansion just to avoid destroying a planet.
But man can. For he is more than matter. It is his soulfulness, his inner knowing. It is selflessness in which the true inspired human being shows himself and distinguishes himself from the animal, from matter.
Education is the limitation of expansion. Education teaches that everything is already spread, that one is one with what is already spread. And that it is therefore not necessary to expand oneself indefinitely in competition with oneself. Education is the teaching of inclusiveness. In the case of animals into the family unit and in the case of human beings into the whole of spiritual creation.
