Life rights idea updated
With the coming of technological intelligence I think it is more important than ever we entertain the concept of life rights...
Life rights are based on the principle 'the more needs a life form has the more rights it has'. As an example; a mouse can live in a cage happily, but a human in such circumstance would suffer a great deal. A mouse therefore has no need to live free from a cage so its life rights do not encompass the right to freedom. A human needs freedom, so in regard to life rights has the right to freedom. Life rights is based on this principle, rights are ascending with a life forms needs.
-The most basic life right, the one which goes right down to that of even a virus; is the right to exist, that it should not be exterminated, that we should not commit genocide.
-The next life right up would be the right to reproduce.
-The next life right up will be the right to exist in the environment you are designed for. I guess a virus and unfriendly bacteria don't have the next two life rights up if they conflict with the life rights of other life forms who are higher up.
-The next is maybe a life should be able to function as they were designed to do, to breath, eat live and not be perverted/changed.
-If a creature has a central nervous system they should not be forced to live in pain.
-The right to physical stimulation like exercise.
-The right to intellectual stimulation like problem solving.
-The right to freedom.
- Higher up perhaps all sentient creatures should have equal rights to a degree.
I think life rights should be closely likened to human rights, it should be a term we (the human race) take on into our legal systems one day, Just a concept I thought I'd share for people to maybe discuss. I know this ideas a bit ahead of its time but I'm sure it will come about one day. Ending our dependency on killing animals would help no end, manufactured meat would help no end, maybe my neurogenesis/delta wave work will help with this one. I'll build on this idea again in the future. Damion
