OK, just for fun, kick this idea around. The statement 'from each according to his ability to each according to his need' is often associated with 'communism'. We won't go into trying to define that word for now, but the phrase is first found in the New Testament. Anyway, back to The Big One. God created everything out of the capacity to do so. Every creature benefits from this abundance according to her/his/its need. Wadyathink? P.S. I am not now nor have I ever been a 'communist' (though I refuse to 'name names'). Just had this thought and wanted to explore the ramifications.
