“Drowning from exhaustion because there was no ice.”
Is prajna/wisdom/awareness or ignorance preferable? All of us would say “wisdom.”
Is sadness or satisfaction preferable? What if awareness wisdom shows us the sad effects of our selfish actions? Do we still want to “see”?
Is there a point beyond guilt trip? Can awareness lead to responsible action?
Cause and effect is the technical definition of “karma.” It’s too bad the effects (melting ice) and the cause (us, driving, etc) are disconnected by “out of sight, out of mind.”
So let’s keep it in sight. From Planet Earth, with the majestic baritone of Sir Attenborough.
“Warning – that video is incredibly depressing. You can see, though, that it’s an issue with the ice being weak and they struggle, exhaust themselves, and eventually drown (video cuts off before he actually dies).”
