I would change "to be born into the higher forms" to "to be borne into the higher forms" personally. While I do not agree with the postulate that there is a Craftsman (or that said entity created 'Man' or 'Adam' with a purpose), I do agree that:
*Humans collectively have the power to create an objective framework of Laws (under which to collectively dwell) which dictates, places limits on, and constrains 'all other beings'
*Humans individually have the power, by choice (in this case indicated by 'thy soul's judgement'), to degenerate or regress (in my view, regression from Human to an 'other being')
*Humans individually (and, uniquely) have the power to ascend (or, be 'borne into') into _A_ higher form (be that from 'other being' to 'Human' or indeed 'Human' to a so-called 'Post-human'), also by choice
I feel that humans are unique (in our capacities, which may or may not have evolved over time as a result of the biological systems we appear to be made up of and which may indeed present itself again - or already has), and gifted with one crucial gift: that of personal choice.
