It is Humanity that is stuck in “wilderness”
Opinion from the Internet about the suffering of animals:
“Well if you think animals don’t suffer greater or lesser miseries than humans it may prove that you haven’t transcended what it involves to live in the wilderness with no help and no easy way out. But we made it out and let them have it for what’s left, and what is left of them after hunting and fishing them ceaselessly. Armageddon is upon them, not onus. Utterly Miserable.”
I would recommend you to study Nature’s perfect system, even through the inevitably limited sciences of our present world, based on our present egocentric, subjective understanding.
Nature is based on a constantly, perfectly balanced “circle of life”, within which all inanimate and living creatures are instinctively integrated. The sense, mutual support in Nature’s “mutual guarantee” is such that even after being born, Nature’s elements do not feel that they have left the mother’s womb.
It is not the animals that are stuck in the wilderness, it is Human beings who are stuck in their own wilderness as we are born outside of Nature’s perfect system — from our own viewpoint. For Humans leaving the mother’s womb is a tragedy as almost immediately we are forced to fight, compete for day to day survival in a hostile world where seemingly everybody is only there to harm us.
And animals suffer only when Human beings cause their suffering with their “cancer-like”, all-consuming activities. Thus it is not the animals that we need to save, but we have to save ourselves first, by finding a way to rebuild Human society based on Nature’s fully integrated, mutually complementing template.
As we could observe in many instances when Human activity lessened in certain areas, Nature can replenish, rebalance itself almost instantaneously.
We need to find the way from our Human wilderness back to Nature’s mother’s womb.
