Descent into matter - has been foreseen by Cosmic Intelligence

In the Book of Genesis, Moses recounts the expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise after they have disobeyed God. But this is only a means of explaining the descent of human beings into matter. This descent, in fact, was neither a mistake nor an accident; it was foreseen by Cosmic Intelligence. Why? Because in order to attain knowledge in its totality, human beings were required to develop their intellectual faculties; and in order to develop these faculties, they had to devote themselves to the exploration of matter, which meant placing themselves in conditions which temporarily diminished their perception of the spiritual world. Human beings today find themselves at this stage of their evolution: they are immersed in materialism. But it is not the final stage: when this experience is complete, they will return once again to the regions of the soul and spirit which they left behind, and thanks to all they have experienced in the material realm by way of the intellect, they will return enriched.
