[asa] Evolution of the Soul

The people in the Bible go through a social evolution. Society has continued
this evolution. I see strong parallels between the stages of society and the
stages of a child's development. Children go through stages of actions
without thought; quickly forgiven violence; general pleasantness; strict
adherence to rules without forgiveness; cruel lack of acceptance, frequently
occurring with violence; temporary maturity; general rebellion; relative
obedience; strict adherence to rules without question or tolerance; gradual
growth with a corresponding growth in tolerance.

All people don't go through all stages. I am not a sociologist - just an
observer (and previously a teacher). The village does raise the children -
even if the village is as removed as Hollywood. I don't know if this
sociological evolution is the evolution of the soul. Is it people learning
from history? Some stages seem to be a regression from previous stages. My
children were far more reliable at age 11 than at age 13 and society seems
to go through that type of regression as well.
