Jagad Guru Chris Butler quotes – Bacteria Have Awareness and Purpose

Bacteria Have Awareness and Purpose

If there is no self in the body, then there is no reason not to treat that body—human or otherwise—the same as we treat any other composition of matter. The no-self world view is the basis, the rationale, for the uninhibited exploitation of other living entities.

However rudimentary the awareness of bacteria may be, it does exist. Bacteria also have a sense of self-awareness, as indicated by the fact that their observable activities seem to center on survival.

“Awareness” refers to that inseparable, essential, inherent attribute of yours, the self, which enables you to perceive thoughts, feelings, the world, etc., and indeed your own existence (self awareness = awareness that “I am”).

Jagad Guru Chris Butler – Science of Identity Foundation

======

Awareness is your natural attribute—indeed, your essence—that makes this witnessing and observing possible. As such, awareness cannot be separated from you, the self.

Jagad Guru Chris Butler – Science of Identity Foundation

======

Mankind doesn’t own the lower or higher species of life.
