mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
aa. no.

mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
aa. not really. i think that the way i see god may be controversial for other people.

mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
aa. i do think of it. I suppose it's socialisation, you know, it's just a default mechanism... but I do not associate them necessarily as together.

mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
aa. both.

mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
aa. a space where you can be, grow, feel joy and inspiration.

mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
aa. yes.

mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
aa. communication, friendship and attraction, all levels of communication, not just verbal. i think a deep understanding of how the other person communicates to you and their surroundings and vice versa, a trust that you can exchange and evolve from being together and as individuals.

mig. what have you learned about life so far?
aa. i have learned that sometimes one's role is to set people free by simply telling them where to turn their head to see the sun. i have also learned that the world is a very small place full of echo and surprises. I have learned that everything that i sensed might happen has happened. i feel quiet spiritually empowered by this and there is a sense of magic about this realisation in my life. It’s provided me with great drive and a deep trust in myself.

mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
aa. i would describe us as in conflict.
