[.. Jesus was describing a process He knew to be the evolutionary process God instituted, where a being is 'born' of the woman's body (exits the water world of the womb) and 'born' of the Spirit, to enter into the kingdom of God, the next reality of the Universe. ..]

Being "born again" like most spiritual things it is metaphorical.. Describing the "Spirit" or even the "spirit" in human language is weak it takes a word picture to approach showing the observation.. Being "born again" is a word picture of something else.. the term is pregnant..

Very true. Language fails. The only way to know the Holy Sirit is to know Him, to experience Him.
