Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.
That other planet was this one, in the distant past.
I don't believe the son pay for the sins of the fathers, but this view is strong ngl
I don't believe they should have to, but the cumulative damage to the global ecosystem has determined that literally this is what is happening. Scale matters so much. If it was a matter of grandpa poisoned the water hole through some spite or negligence, then we all move on from that site and spit when we say his name and hopefully learn from his error. Eventually, that water hole might naturally recover and another group might use it. But now there is nowhere to move on to. I see heaven and hell metaphorically, so they were always this world or the imagining of it as a cautionary tale or a guide. The problem I run into so so much is that one person's cautionary tale is another person's how to manual.
Ohh I see, sorry I was reading your comment in a different lens
I totally agree with your comment
My early comment was about my feelings and a different interpretation of that quote. I usually have strong feelings about the pelt and fur industry and when I saw this news I instantly remembered how many religions portray hell as a place of never ending suffering and gore and pain, and the many gruesome things humans can imagine to entertain their own dark side. For me the animal exploitation in industrial scale is a faithful reproduction of any of those frightful hell scenes, for any sentient being the very thought of this is saddening.
Not sure if A.Huxley was thinking in these terms, but my mind associated the quote with a notion of metempsychosis in a Dharmic context. That with all the progress we made in human civilization we can be compared to a hellscape to any other alien civilization.
