There is something that is not created or made. The Scriptures called it ‘intelligence,’ which at a certain stage in the pre-existence was organized into a ‘spirit.’
Teachings of the presidents of the church: Harold B Lee, chap 2
In support of this are the scriptures that say that the Lord created the world, and all things in it, _spiritually_ before they were created physically.]]>
The apostles have stated that Heavenly Father “clothes” an intelligence “with a spirit body”. Therefore, my belief is that “unorganized” spirit matter gets “organized” into a spirit body, and becomes inhabited by an intelligence.
It may be _somewhat_ analogous to physical matter being organized into a physical body that then becomes inhabited by a spirit body/intelligence combination.]]>
Regarding the McKay quote: Sounds like he was speculating to me; and not speculating very effectively in that case. We are all allowed to make guesses though.]]>
