    Thank you Satish. I share your feelings that man is a most arrogant specie when it comes to nature and other species. I am affraid that not only Descartes but monotheist religions as well, some of them still sacrificial, share responsibility for this. Or it may be that some of their teachings have been lost. I recently heard, from a student in the Talmud, that, originally, the very first people of Israel, were forbidden to eat meat, any kind of meat. Not only ST. Francis, but also Chief Seattle spoke of deers and rivers as being the brothers and sisters of the Sioux people .
