We have misunderstood God's original intent, we have misunderstood not only ourselves, but also God's purpose for us on earth.
If intent is unknown, misunderstanding is inevitable. Misunderstanding intent guarantees a waste of time, talent, energy, gifts and resources.

Have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."
Please note: In order for the Lord to facilitate this, He prepared a special habitat for His human representatives.
