what is god for you?
mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
lb. i am still not quite sure about what it means to me, the simplest way was to say god is being yourself.
mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
lb. yes, i guess since the fear for god has more and more vanished since the enlightenment; people have been realising what has been done in the name of god and how beliefs were exploited for oppression; which should not mean that believing itself is an oppression.
mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
lb. i do believe all of us make our own choices and form our own paths.
mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
lb. passionate, tender, deep, existential affection to someone or something. not wanting to live without the subject of affection and doing everything to be and stay together. its probably the most important human emotion i have or will ever feel.
mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
lb. i am not sure, in a way, yes because i don’t think you have to have a certain kind of intelligence to realise the love for someone; we could also break it down to “the need of being with something.” maybe you could say the plant loves the rain, because the plant would vanish without it. we emancipated ourselves from nature and love other humans. although for true love between humans there is more than just one ingredient.
mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
lb. the people have to build up their own terms; it will last forever if both want, believe in and respect those terms, keep communicating and be honest with each other.
mig. what have you learned about life so far?
lb. everyone is very different; don't ever expect people to act like you would, if positive or negative.
mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
lb. everything from positive to negative, with all opposites that we can think of.
