Question: Why does the number forty appear in many studies? Forty days scientists capture information. The embryo develops in forty days. Forty years is some kind of milestone. What is this fateful number?
Answer: Forty is the boundary, beyond which a person exits out of his egoistic quality into the quality of bestowal, into true altruism, but not like in our world, egoistic altruism, but into real altruism.
This so-called moral, ethical distance between the egoistic and altruistic approach is measured by the “fatal” number forty.
In the development of egoism, this fatal number also exists, when from the day of conception, that is, from the moment semen is attached to the wall of the uterus until it receives its first real form also passes forty days. And before that, it is not considered a human embryo.
