The docility and acceptance of the cow epitimizes the attitude which leads to clarity. To become docile we let go of all resistance to, and rejection of, what is happening. We accept every twist and turn of events as something useful and essential to the creative process. We cling docilely to what is good in ourselves and others, even if this is the smallest of embers. Through docility we are able to keep disengaged from the inferior power [edit to add: this is basically fear controlling our ego and keeping us from seeing things objectively] When others are sharp, we can be dull, able to maintain a moderate and just view of our own and of their mistakes. Docility thus allows clarity and independence to return.
I just realized something that makes the Law of Attraction make perfect sense. It all has to do with our country's tendency to label things - often, those labels carry no weight because they are simply put on an empty shell!
How long until when you go to the store to buy "Toothpaste" entirely assuming that it is for cleaning teeth, but the company realizes you don't actually check, so fills it with sugar paste?
How long until a law passes called "The Patriot Act" that is about nothing of the sort, but because of the label, people think it is?
This is like the opposite of the Law of Attraction, this is the Law of Stupidity.
So, think about this - the Law of Attraction says to act as if you had the label, before you get it? Well, in all honesty, that actually makes a lot more sense than getting the label and then never earning it after.
For example, when I say I love someone, does that mean I love them? Or does that mean I want a label put on me saying I love them?
Instead of saying I love someone, doesn't it make more sense to express it? And to experience it? And to work out all of the kinks? And then after expressing it and knowing it, doesn't that mean when I say it she is more likely to say "Aww, I love you too?"
From what I realized, The Law of Attraction makes a lot more sense than anything else.

What you are saying is complicated, Akushla. I do agree with it. The truth of the matter is a lot of our mind's full potential is held back through fear and social norms - if we were able to experience enough to open our mind and at the same time be able to make good decisions
(the process of opening the mind seems to result in bad decisions as we learn, failure is the only way to success) -
So yes. What is the point? I think the evidence seems to point to a way for us to learn, as spirits, through experiences, more about life and how to be happy.
It could also be an alien race or technologically advanced civilization that is running a simulation for cultural reasons (producing games like Skyrim) or possibly diplomatic reasons (determining and studying the pros and cons of different philosophies).
