According to this concept, the human being is the culmination of the universe, and without humans, heaven and earth would have no significance.
The cosmic spring, when heaven breathes life into the dormant earth, is the Era of Heaven’s Nobility. The cosmic summer, when earth nurtures humans and all other forms of life, is the Era of Earth’s Nobility. The cosmic autumn, when humans ascend to an enlightened state of existence, achieving a perfect union with the spirits and wielding the might of creative change, is the Era of Humanity’s Nobility.
Humanity’s nobility signifies that humans will become the most majestic beings of the universe. Hence, Sangjenim chose to foreshadow this forthcoming era of humanity’s nobility by incarnating into this world as a human.
