This is just a question I have always pondered theres nothing that lives on this planet the dosent survive off of death . Even plant life is life you cannot walk without causing death of some sort life you just stepped on . There is no way you can live without causing the death of something .

Would like to hear others thoughts on this .

Because we live in hell.

This place is hell.

It is nature's law ?
Can't eat dirt as there are microbes , bacteria , etc. in that.
What would you recommend ?

Because life is harsh and unforgiving. That’s about it. We’d all love to not kill ants, morally, but unless you want to take a week to walk up your own road then I’d suggest to carry on being the predator that you are.

We are really only just beginning to understand what constitutes life.

Could be the entire planet is alive and connected in ways we do not yet fully comprehend.

Nor ever will have the capacity to understand in the entirety considering we are part of the system and equation.

Now apply that to the entire universe and the 11 dimensions in which it exists.

All life on earth has evolved with the specific purpose of eventually dying.

As to why.... well, like most things in life, it's a mystery that we are yet to solve.

Yep, our destiny is death, wholesale, but our DNA tells us that procreation and the betterment our our species, like every other species, is the only game played. Nothing else matters. A race to the finish or to evolve as much as possible.

Apparently, entropy must increase within a closed system down to energy being conserved.

When a life ends that's exactly what nature does.

Precisely, a body is a vehicle for DNA, so it only has limited shelf life for the purpose of the DNA. If you can survive harm and violence, whether intentional or not, then you have a chance to live on, until eventual death.

That's what the gnostics essentially claim.

The Holy Roman Church of St Peter was not too happy with that, hence there demise really.

It sounds like Breatharianism is just the thing for you!

But yeah.. Life is brutal. Full stop.

We can hide from it rather effectively in urban environments, but it certainly doesn't go away. Arguably, that can also lead to.. unrealistic expectations (being kind).

I agree completely that there is an anomaly for humans that we’ve yet to figure out. But right now we’re not that much above those poor ants in how we behave and live in certain respects. I hope future generations do manage to learn the reasons why humans are so destructive, yet have a mission that ants do not. A dichotomy for the ages.

Well that's Darwinism and survival of the fittest pretty much eloquently summed up.

The strong will always feck the weak.

Death i suppose being the great equalizer in the end.


What happens when we build something that transcends what we consider to be mortality through?

That might be interesting.

Death begets life.

It's all cyclic.

Until we evolve into a self-sustaining system without time, that is...

And that’s possibly where we come in. We’re still learning but we’re learning fast.

In a lot of respects, those poor ants are far superior to us semi-intelligent Monkeys.

They have been around, and probably will be long after we depart this planet or destroy ourselves for sport.

They have a purpose and drive humanity cannot begin to fathom.

And collectively they might be a whole lot more intelligent than we think.

All energy (except for radioactive decay and geothermal steam) comes from the sun.

Heraclitus said it 2,500 years ago this way: "wherever something eats, something eats it."

We concentrate the live force of our prey, and make use of it while we live.

It is both savage and beautiful. That isn't a paradox; just the way things are. Personally, I love it. I love hunting, and do so with a clean conscience. I eat everything I kill. I kill (almost) everything I eat.

I suggest you read Siddartha, by Hermann Hesse. It is about a young man in India, ~500 BC, wrestling with these same issues, and finding his place in this world.
