  •  I look at dying as unavoidable and maybe a really (9+ / 0-)

    good thing. First, an eternal life would be eternally boring. Second, if we wink out like a light then that just means what we have here is only meaningful as part of the whole web of life and whether more enjoy it while it lasts without feeding unneccessarily on others. Third, if there is something after this life then why fear moving on. Fourth, I mourn not because the person is gone but because I no longer have them in my life enriching it or because unresolved issues now will never be resolved.

    I don't think it is cold to take into consideration of all life when not clinging greedily to this one. I don't think that considering the burden on all life by overpopulation is cold. But I do think that is the individuals choice.

    I do consider categorizing and expecting select groups to make way for others is controlling. Life is each living beings journey not some formulaic route enforced or pushed by others to meet thier valauation of anothers worth. I think we see far too much marginalizing and exploiting.

    Nice diary.
