@maxdancona,
Nothing that had a heartbeat - Nothing fried, Nothing processed or from a can, etc

Everything is alive - If it absorbs, expands and discharges energy - It lives.
Consciousness is self-relative, and another subject - One you'll not understand in your current host - So I'll not try to explain.

@maxdancona,
And I've never felt better.
In body, mind or spirit.

By 'processed' foods - I Mean boxed, tinned or frozen.
Clearly Vegetables, fruits, pulses, pasta, rice, nuts, dairy, etc - Are all 'processed' to some degree.
I'll have, some chocolate, some baked and dairy goods and a lager now and then - My main meals are Meat, grease, poisons and bpa-free though.
No corn (Maize) and no produce from the usa ever passes my lips. Or 'Flavour pack' (Poison) orange juice.

Do you think animals are the subjects of moral consideration?

Any opinions about the proper scope and scale of our moral obligations in regard to animals?

Must a morally considerable being be able to recognize moral claims?


1) Of course they are. One very simple example is how you local supermarket is probably selling more free range chicken eggs than those factory raised.

2) We have a moral obligation to not cause them to suffer needlessly and not cause their extinction if we can prevent it.

3) No
