Reincarnation

Baseline awareness is the calm state I return to after anger, sadness or excitement. The bass line of this song is the bass line of that song, that song, and that song.  Baseline awareness is the basis for all my awareness. We come back. We recur.

Sperm

They put me in four-point restraints and took my sperm from me at UAB. I was 16.

Ice-Age Poem

I see a canyon in your ceiling,
a horn hung between two fires.

Transhumanist warning

If the trans humanists turn you into a finch temporarily you may eventually reincarnate as a finch, because you've taken on that baseline awareness.

Utilitarianism

In ethics we have to take into account not merely pleasure and pain but the ways in which pleasure and pain are imagined. Murder isn't just the unpleasant end of a life. it sets into motion events that are unpleasant when thought of. In certain cases the imagination of death cannot be avoided. Grief is immeasurable but not infinite. But the gap between nothing at all and pleasure is infinite, but not uncrossable. Utilitarianism doesn't begin to cover any of this. In this way Utilitarianism is not even sufficient for an animal's suffering and happiness.

Spirit

Molecules are made of atoms. Atoms are made of subatomic particles. Each of these is a component layer. Each component layer is completely dependent on the layer beneath it. Therefore there cannot be an infinite series of complete dependance for the same reason that an infinite series of zeros does not add up to one. There must be something at the bottom which has no component parts. That something is spirit.
