Hi David

>>Yes, the 6 billion create this "consciousness" by agreeing on certain things. The sky is blue, oranges taste like oranges, etc. But birds and other animals see color and objects diferently, experience taste differently than us, and for a shark, ripping another being to pieces is perfectly aceptable. And if you've noticed, not every human has the same notion of right and wrong. Not everyone is wrapped up in rules and "black and white". Saddam Hussein sees things differently than most of us, believing that torture was a perfectly suitable tool of government.

I should have mentioned that although 6 billion people generally agree on what is right and wrong, not one of them can fully realise a life led 100% right, and all who are honest will admit this. Even Saddam did not claim that torture was right, rather he denied torturing people .... in effect stating that torture is wrong!

The fact that we mostly agree on right and wrong, and yet cannot live up to our ideals is the fundamental point here. It is something we have to live up to that we can't, something that comes to us from beyond human conciousness, something absolute that we cannot deny exists, even though some of us would like nothing more.

Another question : Jesus preached a bodily resurrection of the dead .... which body will we be resurrected in ... the first, the most beautiful, the last, the oldest? If we have all lived a million lives on earth, we have all had a million bodies.......

Blessings
Banah
