    Now i realize i should have taken photos. (of the embodiment of death)(for you to chew on)

    Got to the secluded island, only to find a dead baby seal washed up onto the rocks.
    Tried to distract him from it, since it's eye was all chewed up and some other parts of the body, specifically the tail.

    No go, he just ran back and sat down and stared at it.
    i sat down, and tried to explain "death"
    but that means you also have to explain "life"


    and why is this seal more interesting than all the ants he had killed.

    have to go pick him up.

    Learning of death is the first step toward learning to live.


    Then again what you were looking at might have been a symbolic display of nature hiding a deeper spiritual meaning...as there are Four Seals; often known as the 4 Keys. Each Seal is divided again into 4 parts.The first of which " That all composite things are impermanent."
    • 2. That all that is tainted entails suffering.
      3. That Realisation is Peace and..
      4. That all phenomena are devoid of independent entity.

    There are 3 more Seals.

    @Wizeard i forgot about the suffering part, it was more life and death.

    I explained about living, playing, eating, exploring, getting tired, sleeping, not waking up, no longer playing, nothingness, finished... being part of the sea, shall we let him go back to the sea?

    "he will go to mamma & pappa?"

    "yes"

    I did not talk about the animals that eat you afterwards.

    got a bucket to cover the face, cause the bottom would be worse eaten than the top, he helped me lift the body up and threw the baby seal into the sea.
    The tide slowly took the seal outwards.

    (causing multiple motorboat accidents).

    50% felt bored after it had gone some distance and went off to piss off some cliffs (nappy training is over) and annoy the other kid.

    Religion is so easy, with its great stories about the after after, which make it so much easier to say the baby seal went to baby seal heaven & found its mamma.

    unsure of what i did.

    Granny was arrested for shoplifting. She was a bad person. You'll never have to see her again.

    One of many methods.

    I didn't like her much, either.
