So God looked at all things He had created and observed in what they were transformed during their first evolutionary cycles. Much has been created and there was such harmony that God, infatuated with perfection, conceived a new being originated from the several forms He most liked. A being closer to Himself and that could carry the gift of emotion and discrimination. It was great God’s love for branches, fruits, petals, leaves, roots.
