"Dear Robert, you have published twice in your 4000 Ideas (in Volume III and VIII) the Dismal Alphabet by Mary Luttig. The first time I considered it indeed a dismal record of humans killing other humans wholesale in wars and in massacres.
The second time I added up the total which came to more than 15.5 million killed between 1836, the earliest record and 1985, the latest and there are quite a few more massacres to be added for the last sixteen years. As a matter of fact, the total people killed in World War II amounted to 60 million.
This thought then dawned upon me: what would be the world's population today if these people had not been killed? There would be quite a few more millions added to today's world population of 6.1 billion. And most of these killings took place in the developed countries where you consume thirty times more of my resources than the people consume in the poor countries. I also thought of you personally: having not been killed in World War II you had four children and have now nine grandchildren. Suppose the 15.5 million dead of the Dismal Alphabet or the 60 million dead of World War II would not have been killed and would have had only two or four descendants over that time. By today the world population would be 30 to 60 million more in the first case and 120 million to 240 million more in the second one. I wish that the United Nations Population Division would make estimates and come up with more accurate figures. They would render me a great service.
My conclusion as the Earth is therefore that these killings, while being awful from the human point of view, turned out to be a blessing for me today.
What do you say to that?"
I am speechless. But my first reaction is that you should also think of the destructions which were inflicted upon you.

Chapter 3 - Of Consciousness
To give life is the most sacred, divine act conceivable: it is to give birth to an embodiment, an incarnation of incredible cosmic forces, a true act of Creation. Each father and mother is a Co-Creator, a God and a Goddess.*
