Which way do you see it: from the darkness comes the light or from the light comes the darkness. Well I know both well.
However many people see a polarized world, and by that I mean the corpreal world of consumers and what each being wants is the light that they try to extract and deem essential to thier exisitence. The competition is all too often seen as the dark side.
Co-operation is just a herd mentality.
The issue I am addressing is that whereas someone may acknowledge light and dark the absolute are beyond comprehension and hence are not available to exploit for continued consumption, hence the notion of recycling as there is only so much energy, dark or otherwise that is accessible.
But it must be clear that there is the grey, or for the deceitful, colours.
So much is grey that it is sensible to say that even the light and darkness, no matter how perceived are just shades of grey. An in this range of greyness we consume. We may want to consume more light, but more often that not dwell on and in the darkness as a) there is more of it and it is easier to manipulate.
This manipukation come from the knoweledge that no matter what a being's range of grey is, it is a unique range and what is more there is no range, lighter or darker, that is closer to the perfect light or darkness - hence there is no moral issue in consuming.
If there is a moral issue then it must be separated form the grey. It could be either the light or the dark, but as these words have clear meaning in the temporal world then another single word, or letter, or sound, would suffice to identify.
Perfection, absolute, eternal, can have similar conotations to morality. Infinite is a close approximation and is very useful in logic.
As there can be no morality in a world of consumption, dare I say killing, then morality must or may exist as an absolute far from the light and dark. So do not expect to find morality in the world of people, do not approach them if you have a moral inclination or at least minimise contact and by people that would stretch to other than homo sapiens and plants. Some may say that the earth, water, fire and air are alive and are people too. And sure all the gods, angels, spirits and what have you, consume.
So knock back your consumption where you can and stay there. Build a soul to return to from the frequent wandering upon the paths of grey. Those closest are your enemies, in that they are the ones most easilerly distracting and open to co-operation. The herd rules in the temporal world but morality is a lonely soul.
Search not in the papers for work, or the forest for wood, for that which you want the most, love, you already own. Now use it to free yourself from the otherwise inevitable decay.
If you can turn on to gray on and see clearly the leave. If you find yourself looking for work then they grey was just one you hadn't seen before, maybe purple or red.
As homo sapien there is a focus on thinking as a major resource, naturally inclined to increasing consumption comfort and security. It is not the only use of intelligent thinking, yes there is other basic thinking. like AI.
The use of intelligence can do no good, but from it's use an awareness of good can arise. Such an awareness is not available to every homo sapien given their varying abilities of youth, injury and aged related decay, so not much change of other animals being conscious of that elusive entity termed good.
In the material world where 'intelligence' animals reign it is known that all food consumption starts as vegetation for animals. The few animals that can only sustain themselves by eating other animals are cats, big and small. Cats do not have the metabolic ability to produce an amino acid called taurine. In other animals this is not essential and hence can avoid eating other animals if there is sufficient vegetation available.
So given the application of intelligence then it is of some concern that homo sapiens in the rich societies, those with amble food, chose to consume animals, and it's not just that it is unethical in the use of land resources.
The query that arises is the how an individual stops using their intelligence at an ethical level that suits their taste. Such an action goes to show that a person who touts ethics it only does it to control other people to free up the availability of the resources they want as an individual. Whatever the excuse for eating animals,
a) Health, really. Cows and elephant are pretty healthy on grass and leaves
b) I have the right, You mean you have the power to abuse those weaker than you
c) They are dumb, You have the power to abuse those more stupid that you
d) God said I could/should do it. OK ISIS
e) I live on an ice pack and there are only fish and seal. OK polar bear, leave you to it.
f) I am stupid, not that stupid
g) I like the taste, well no we have it. Ethics are a joke
But just because ethics are a joke does that mean there is no good and I do mean good not god. After all there infinity - an in definable number, so that absolutes are non existent yet are real. Good is real whilst god exists in many forms, do not mistake god as good, god is your own personal ethics and any compromises you make with other consumers.
Enjoy your heat whilst your heart beats and embrace the cold as you grow old.
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder)
As the H word implies it is noted by Hyperactivity, if that can be defined.
But the notion of any attention deficit would seem to play on the notion that a certain amount of attention is either a necessity for expected function or a subsequent change in expected function following and therefore associated with a drop in attention. How a person deals with that is where the notion that the subsequent actions of the person is deemed hyperactive and a disorder to the environment the activity occurs in
Defining words. The soul seems to refer to a simple form of identity, not so the persona. Between the two is the mind and brain.
These are 1. The Truth 2. The Straight 3. The Curve 4. The Crooked
The Truth as being the only truth, a moral and spiritual truth. But if the Truth be told then it be not the Truth for something so great cannot be uttered, sang, written, drawn or crafted by a consuming animal no matter how sapient they be.
The Straight has the advantage of direction which plants understand as they reach up for light and down for water, but homo sapiens see other directions akin to the flat earth antagonist. The direction of animals is for shelter and food and the animal is blindingly oblivious when in such a search mode to that which is deemed straight and straight forward is anything other than straight' but it is toward. It is this sense of direction that is bound and tied to satisfying fulfilment. Animals may have little else to fill than their stomachs whilst mankind is haunted by The Truth.
The Curve is but all any animal can managed in their hungry pursuit for if the prey deviates from a predictable path then the pursuers deviation from the fore-made plan is inevitable. Even plants will curve towards the sun and send out side roots in search of water, so what then can animals achieve. Taking the lot of other animals and plants there is little use in being straight let alone considering the truth or merits of the action when change is the only constant for an insatiable consumer.
The Crooked is a purely Homo Sapiens adventure. To actively deceive another thinking creature, not something other animals do to any notable degree and plants seem not to . To bend another person to the will of the crook, to steal when trust has been established or to break the bonds of the all so carefully crafted laws that bind humans in their pathetic adherence to a path that offers salvation from the storms of Earth. These are the peak survivors that by not holding to any earthly laws other than survival are closer to the real animals than homo sapiens really think they are. It is not the encompassing or denial of brutality than provides host to the mind games but that neither are a direction yet helps to keep the Truth out of reach.
