GB No. 5-6, summer-fall 1991
Nature is morally indifferent, the earth doesn't circle because it is good and a lion doesn't kill his victim because he is bad. tim because he is bad.
Nature is not sensible, wind doesn't blow because it should to blow.
A man has morals which tell him to kill and a mind whith which to justify murder.
When you observe a fox you have no doubts - the fox's own place is in the forest, in the temperate climate, and he lives by killing other animals.
I can't find a man's place: it's not a forest because the man, while building the house, wants to isolate himself from the surrounding nature. However it is not his place because he misses the nature. He tamed the animals to eat their flesh. Then he won't eat them because he finds it morally dubious. The man doesn't have his own place and his own food.
The proper environment for a man is his mind; it is only here he can truly change the house and the menu.
Some say the mind is in the brain - an organ which completely deformed our skull (that's also why we catch a cold so often). It's our mind that is responsible for perfecting our laziness and investing our system of values. Valuation is his creation too.
AFRICAN TIME IS WORSE THAN LONDON STOCK-EXCHANGE TIME, DISEASE IS WORSE THAN HEALTH, A PIG IS WORSE THAN A MAN.
All this is only a concept of our mind - the instrument which replaced claws, fur, a sense of smell.
Death and life, pig and man - those are the aspects of the one phenomenon called The Universe. Putting values on things doesn't make any sense, it sets our mind above other minds, it makes us egoists.
It is because of this egoism that we can't accept the rule which says: we are as free as the others are. The others are animals, air, soil, bacteria, water. These all have a real existences they are all elements of The Universe. We threatened them, we released the defending mechanisms. The system which we are a part of now fights against us in the same way it fights against Cancer. It is neither morals nor any consciousness which instructs this system - the lion doesn't kill his victim because he is bad.
