I’ve just read an article here in which one reads in the title that Chinese culture, among all other, is the one that feel emotions more physically. I tend to think that is true. Physically only! Not emotionally. Based on the cruelty they have been inflicting to animals nowadays (dogs and cats at the ‘horror festival, let alone these bear-bile farms) — they seem to me the heartless and soulless people in the world. Period. Of course, South Koreans with that other horror called Bok Nal ‘festival’ are very close to Chineses when the subject is cruelty to animals. I do not understand Asian culture at all. Unfortunately, they seem to me soulless people.
“endegenous wind” or inner wind was a chinese language phrase that can translate stroke or other seisure disorders. Term more descriptive than causal. Exterior wind would be a common “cold.” In-flu-enza comes from confluence of river of stars.
That is a brilliant article. I think that the bike farms are as you mentioned cruel. I also believe that the farmers that cause pain and cruelty to animals in poorer countries do so because that is all they know and their father did it. We need to ( the governments) reeducate so they are able to put food on the table.
I absolutely adore animals they are nicer to be with and nicer to each other and yes they do hurt, which is the balance of life.
It’s the cruelty westerners are probably the worst offenders as they know the hurt they are inflicting and they don’t appear to have empathy for life animal or human and that is extremely sad and scary for our children.
Thank you for this thoughtful and profoundly moving essay. This comes home to me as one of the stranger transformative experiences that the mind is capable of entering when ripe, and prompted. The birth of my son was my own gateway into feeling the animal continuum running through me, a vivid instinctual life with unignorable moral implications. Very pleased that the “Gregory Bateson” Google alert I have set up has brought me this essay.
This is a horrendous abuse of power over innocent animals and must be stopped.
