What is good and bad?
"What is good and bad?"
"I'm unsure if that's even possible to answer."
"What's the difficulty? Would we not just base it upon enjoyment and suffering? Such as, it is terrible to lose a loved one to death?"
"Well, sure but I mean - that's very elementary. You made a thoughtful decision there to help formulate a truth, which is first to distinguish a basis for reasoning. Though I agree in the preservation of life and supporting growth as a good deed, as I morally feel that to be right, however - philosophically we discover numerous problems with such an attitude. Death is necessary. To resist it is to oppose the essence of life. As we know, there is an incomprehensible amount of dying everywhere within and all around us, which supports the possibility of continuation for anything currently living. Our species owe our existence to various catastrophes, and to that of the events tracing further back regarding the collapse of stars and explosions which probably wiped out entire planets. You, individually underwent an immense amount of suffering and death during the formulation of your body in your mother's womb, as she also endured pain to birth you. It's hard to define anything as wrong as we cannot and will never be able to identify the wave of consequences that follow any event as nothing in the known universe has a conclusion; not even yourself. I mean, take note of the current virus. The suffering, tragic and heartbreak it's caused humanity, yet there’s the potential 'good' it's doing for this planet relative to our survival."
