is the name of a philosophy of life

claiming in broad outline that mankind will have to start

 respecting life and well-being of all kinds of creatures on Earth

fully as soon as possible, in case it wants the possibility to continue

 its existance on this planet not to disappear within a few decades

 and at the same time this existance to

 become paradisally.



 Further information

The more or less central idea in this philosophy is the empirically arosen conviction that in nature a rule exists, as a consequence of which whatever a behaviour of one living being that kills or reduces the natural well-being of another one, is proportionally punished one way or another.

In a way the other side of this medal is that those living beings that succeed in living their life without killing or hurting other living beings, don't deserve any punishment and therefore won't get any.

As a result they will have the opportunity to fully enjoy all the aspects of nature on Earth, that are destined to give their life on this planet a paradisal character.

As for the way of life in which (as good as) no other living beings are killed or hurt can be said that it is the most natural way of life possible, be it, that then as well one has to take good care not to hurt other beings.

As however nowadays there are only very few or no places around any more where it's possible to live perfectly naturally, today one can only do what one can to live as naturally as possible in a mostly very unnatural environment. This implies that one uses as little as possible artificially produced objects as these all have been produced in a (mostly industrial) way that took the life of big numbers of microbes (by use of fire and fuel), but also in many a case caused environmental pollution that at least reduced well-being of other kinds of living beings.

But as said, even when living that reduced materialistically, for instance in a forest, one still has to take care not to harm especcially animals and plants there; (no breaking braches, no removal of nettles, no mosquito slaughter, no raw treatment of snails, etcetera, etcetera ).

When living in a nowadays (still) more common situation like in a townhouse, one in the first place feeds oneself with the most natural foodstuff possible (raw-fructarian), but also uses as little energy and fuel as possible, for instance for heating and transportation. Apart from that one takes care that one's behaviour in whatever another field is as human-, animal-, plant-, and microbe-friendly as possible.

It goes without saying that the more Earth inhabitants will persue such a life friendly way of behavior, the more nowadays threats of man's existance on this planet will be reduced and the more paradisal his stay under the moon will become; (disappearance of environmental problems, illnesses,  accidents, wars, overstrain, etcetera, etcetera. )
