I can't really relate to cut and dried ideas of Good and Evil or enhancing
or diminishing of life. It seems completely disconnected from reality to

and avoid Evil things? Obviously our experiences have many layers and
qualities which change dynamically. Anything can be interpreted as
enhancing or diminishing life. Chemotherapy Good or Evil?
