' It fulfills Itself '...

Why should the waves of life-entities take this spiral-like two-way course?

Why do they not go along a direct single one?

The answer is that they have to gather experience to grow; if this experience includes totally opposed conditions, all the parts of each entity can grow, all its latent qualities can be stirred into unfoldment.

In the oppositions of birth and death, growth and decay, in-breathing and exhaling, youth and age, joy and suffering, introversion and extroversion, spirit-form and body-form, it fulfills itself.
