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 
me. If it was that obvious, why wouldn't everyone just do the Good things 
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?
