Hey, I was going to respond earlier, but I have been super busy... I haven't been on here for a while lol. I looked at what you were saying and I did take what you said out of context. I had been going back and forth with Sassan K on different forums about the Occupy movement and I was frustrated at that article and you were the last person to comment and you were saying something about telling that other guy to learn about America or something or other. So, I am sorry I took the comment out of context and going through some of your other comments on that forum, we do quite agree I think!
You are definitely correct. I didn't expect that type of response at all. I also agree, the real issue seemed to be that some people just seem to be incapable (or unwilling?) of understanding what the main point of my post was, that I had become aware that each and every creature as an experiencing subject. You can see the gap in the language used. Those who seemed most violently opposed to even thinking about the concept are also the ones that seemed to refer to animals in the most abstract sense.
I'm not a member of AoF yet. I'm focusing on recording my songs, and that costs money. :-( Didn't I send you a link to my myspace page? Here it is: http://www.myspace.com/thevov -- scroll down until you see a live video shot outdoors. If not, click on "videos" on the left panel, right under the avatar. It's a mix of funk, latin, and death metal!! :-)
