Ok, perhaps I can reframe the idea. Basically, there is a paradise world where good and evil do not exist, karma is a natural result of polarity, however, because of the inherrent "direction" that karma operates in, it is the very force that binds us to duality in the first place. Thus, we have to learn from our "karmic lessons" in order to "escape" this world, which is in actual fact a prison. The framework being that animals do not experience "karma" and that we are evolved from animals, there must be an artificial system that controls our natural urges and impulses.edit on 15-2-2011 by SystemResistor because: (no reason given)
