The question is now, who build the bridge, and who benefit from the bridge been built? .
Before you answer the question, let me enlarged the picture a little farther. Mind developed in an environment; but the environment does not developed mind, rather, its because mind sets out to developed the environment cause mind to developed. The environment is void and without form until mind act. When mind act the environment react to the mind and the person mind whose act, which cause mind to exhaust. Mind need to act so it may exhaust to refresh. When mind refreshed it becomes an advance mind; more than before. When mind act, the environment react and something happen to the personality of the mind that act; the person becomes more powerful as a person, character emerged.
There can never be a powerful mind or personality if the mind remained old in an advance time. Mind must always new, and active so it can exhaust to refresh. The butterfly will not come if the caterpillar does not exhaust. One person can achieve for an entire race or nation of people or even a world White Australian are not more than the native Australian; its just that the native Australian are functioning in the past which is their NOW, their reality, While the reality of the world has advance.
Mind act and education manage the act, education clean mind up. Every time you act your environment becomes more powerful and you too even becomes more powerful. If you do not act and allow others from outside to come and act for you, then you will become stagnated and weak and your environment will pass you by. So
We can answer the question now; who build the bridge and who benefit from the bridge been built.
Off course its the French man who build the bridge and European benefit.
It contribute in strengthening to the European mind gravity, but weakening the mind level of that kingdom. You must not allow any one from outside to come and do things for you, they can teach you but its you or some one grew up there must do it.
The progress has to come from that local environment, and the people has to be the progress. Progress is an art by itself, the artist has to paint the art. Do not make the error to believing that high education will cause progress; progress and the man is the same, as the art and the painter is the same; you got to BE. Mind has space and need experience growth that has to be filed, like riding a bike; it does not matter how many degrees you have about riding bikes, they mean nothing until you experience riding a bike.
You cannot build a people; the people has to build themselves and experience their own progress. Most people are weak, not that they are weak, they maybe educated but they don’t do the things that would make them strong.
