mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
sb. when i was younger i used to go to church and i was a choir boy. i was in contact with other religions in our really small town, but there were few other religions around. i think for me adding to religion is something in your head and something that you have to do; you can use something from the writings or research of others but you don't have to follow the strict rules others have written; i believe more in what a human is and what a human can give you.

mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
sb. undisclosed.

mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
sb. yes there are numerous religions that have one or more gods; i think the word god or religion is always linked to that. so if you talk about religion there is always god involved, this is what we learn in school.

mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
sb. we are the reason why things happen. maybe you have coincidence; i don't know if that is something you can control or if that is a word we use, but it always involves an act of a human.

mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
sb. you can use the word love in so many ways, you can love your friends, family, partner, animals or have love for the world. i think that love and passion are close to each other. i think of sharing everything with these people; love means being yourself and being honest.

mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
sb. i don't know if all life forms understand the word love but i think that they care for each other and if caring is a form of love then all life forms do love each other.

mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
sb. true honesty. be yourself and try to be honest.

mig. what have you learned about life so far?
sb. listen more to people, learn to be quiet once and a while. taking it easy, not to stress out about small things that are not worth it. try to turn negative energy into positive energy.

mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
sb. undisclosed.
