Evolution of consciousness first, forms second

The evolution of gross forms is but a by-product in the universal
factory of evolution of consciousness. (Meher Baba, GS p. 23 online version)

The physical form that acts as the medium for experiencing the opposites of Creation is shown to be an increasingly complex by-product of this will of God to know Himself consciously. The very force of evolution of form becomes, not a random selection of the fittest, but a result of the necessity of the residues of experience to express themselves through increasingly more complex instruments. (GS xxxi)

...this evolution of consciousness inadvertently evolves a series of forms of higher and higher species...(GS 18)

by-product –noun
1. a secondary or incidental product, as in a process of manufacture.
2. the result of another action, often unforeseen or unintended.
