    I admire you but what do you eat? Plants have life too and probably suffer as well Blame the God that mades us having to eat Why are we not “ self propelled” No needs No hunger No thirst no evacuations , no urination. Just people needing nothing and enjoying a peaceful world Otherwise what are we to do??!

    You are right but I wonder I am confused Couldnt eat an animal I saw alive I go to the store and Look at the meat Steaks etc and ignore or forget But at least if I dont see… i will not eat any animals living in cages at least. Let the roam and have some kind of a life However so “ kind” moves for example Catch and throw it back for fish ?? The poor fish goes through pain and terror for diversion ? Where is that kind? At least fish for hunger Like animals kill to eat Blame a God that made a world were people need to eat Plants have lives too So what are we to do? For one thing Not make a sport of killing or worse torturing animals We should only eat for hunger !!!

    nie pisze po angielsku ponieważ nie chce go kaleczyć.Bardzo lubię Twoją grę, sztukę. Nie lubię postaci w które się wcielasz są.. takie.... ...ale coś jest w tym ze poruszasz mnie mimo to ..jest energia coś co porusza...nie jest obojętne, i teraz wiem co to było...wyraziłeś to w mowie na mnie powaliło...i upewniło że można wszystko...trzeba tylko chcieć. dziękuje Ci za to. Pewnie ta moja skromna dygresja zostanie nie zauważona ...ale nie mogłam inaczej...
