According to Jains all living things have a soul. The life you live now determines the life you will live in your next lifetime. The soul is always
reborn, but when you learn to devoid of all Karmas and desires then your soul becomes God and you are no longer reborn. At this state the fully
developed consciousness of a person acquires complete knowledge and becomes blithesome and supreme. Jains do not believe in God as a creator or
nurturer. To them a God who is considered a creator or nurturer would be endowed with desires, and such an entity cannot attain complete perfection.
To them there is four states of consciousness- human, superhuman, subhuman (animals), and hellish. They also believe all matter in the universe has
always been here, everything continues to change form. I'm not saying I 100% agree with the religion. I wanted to share what I learned from reading
To what degree has 'god' acquired any consciousness at all? other than through its own creations reporting back with a book report of experiences
under their arms. All matter in the universe has as you say always been there, it continues to change form because its in a constant state of
flux/change, what is causing this? A god aspect; what is really happening is that the system (plasma) is always in a state of reorganizing itself.
Why? for the most profitable outcome (growth) of the finer detailing of subsets within subsets of promoting a more conscious existance.
Perfection in itself is a desire. One cannot be perfect until they no longer desire perfection. As long as you wish to attain perfection, you will be
forever imperfect. Perfection is merely a shade of greed, of malcontent and dissatisfaction. Right up there with immortality and omniscience.
Perfection is a terrible thing to want.
Replace the word perfection for another (ANY) because once acheived everything collapses (the system becomes a perfect model), and by becoming so is
static/stagnent hits the inth of what entropy is and not growing anymore. You may be speaking of the individual humans perception of a perfect model,
YOU, ME THEM selfishly endevouring to become a better person COMPARED TO WHAT? No such thing other than that one existing in scripture; the fully 9D
human Jesus (so I am told).
