Ginseng1 said:
I believe All-That-Is is a result of preconcieved desire(s).

Why do you believe that?

“Strengthened by contemplation and study,
I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”

I'm not sure.

Everything that humans have created so far is a result of desires. What has come before might have come to existance via the same drive.

Flowing through beginningless time since time without beginning...

It seems likely.  Evolution is driven by a number of factors, including the desire to survive and the desire to mate.  Organisms which do not desire are unlikely to live long enough to pass on their genes.

I've read some interesting thoughts on the cooperative aspect of organisms becoming multi-cellular, as well.  Nothing very scientific, but it MIGHT have some basis in reality.  :grin:
