"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

The Would Be Hunger Artist at the NY Times

It’s a small daily tragedy that we animals must kill to stay alive. Plants are the ethical autotrophs here, the ones that wrest their meals from the sun. Don’t expect them to boast: they’re too busy fighting to survive.

It seems that the only ethical thing to do according to this NY Times article quoted above is to starve oneself. (If only the anti-humanists like Al Gore, et al. were ethical!)
