A woman attempting abortion. An abortion which failed to kill the baby, which was born alive after all. A woman regretting the worst decision she ever took. Having to live forever with the death of her child (which died after all even though in the beginning it was alive – for enough time to make his mother love him and change her mind). (1)
Humans have for a long time been philosophically dogmatic. And they have forgotten who they really are. Unfortunately, only the sight of a dead baby can make them see again from time to time…
No, it is not a “set of cells”.
No, the world is not a “set of atoms”.
No, the universe is not a “set of events”.
We are living creatures. Living and breathing in a luminous world, a world full of consciousness and love. A cosmos full of meaning. A world bull of beings. A world which can only become tragic when we forget our true nature.
Do you have a different opinion?
Go a walk to the nearest butcher shop.
Take a look at the dead meat there.
Imagine everything is matter.
Imagine nothing matters.
Then go on and pay for your meat.
Go back home.
Eat the meat.
Sit and enjoy yourself.
After all it was just a dead baby.
