|Leonardo da Vinci: Saint John the Baptist.|
Every life has some own specific task.
Among other things, this is why every life is extremely important - as human but also any other creature´s life.
But the human selfhood will get point to initiation phase of the spiritual path, where it divides into two, if not three-, see, for example, the Man-Erg lyrics, as it feels so.
Then the old mind base, will begin to decline.
