I can perform a simple experiment to either disprove karma or to render it useless as the moral compass of our morality.
Please ask if you are interested.
I will start off the discussion by asking this question below.
Is karmic action over our next life guaranteed ?
This is a yes or no question.
If yes, it means one can expect to receive the karmic action of his past life.
If yes, then I can design a simple experiment to disprove karma.
If no, if means one might or might not receive the karmic retribution of his deeds in the past life. It simply lacks guarantees or predictability.
Think about the implication if you say no. It then means if one's reason to do good is because he wants to break the bad retribution, but since this retribution is not guaranteed, then it becomes bloody useless.
Please debate if you agree with me, or ask questions.
Since the experts can't answer satisfactorily, let me answer for them. Ahem.....
Karma is carried throughout a "consciousness" existence where the next cycle is determined by that has been done in the previous cycle.
The one that most people understand is that if you have done good in this life, you will rewarded with a better life next cycle. If you did bad, you will be demoted in the next cycle.
What happens to the ants that got the free insecticide then? Well, first of all, they were very bad in the last cycle so they were demoted to become ants. Serves them right. That's karma!!! So how are they going to get the opportunity to ascend when everybody knows ants can't do good or bad deeds. What? Ants going on a homicidal rampage then get bad karma? Or ants did good deeds by helping poor ants so get good karma? They probably don'tt understand anything at that time. Only mindless insects programmed to do their work. Punishment enough I would say.
So if the ants died suddenly, the default is that they get to ascend up the ranks... a bit. Maybe become spider. After dying, the ascend further. Up to a point where their consciousness become self aware, and they know what is good or bad. At that point in the cycle, karma kicks in, and you'll get what you deserve in the next cycle based on what you did in the previous life.
How did I do? Ok?
Part 2 - So a consciousness will ding dong up and down the ranks in each cycle depending on previous cycle karma. Accidental death is not a problem because karma are carried to subsequent cycles. The best top tier rank, I guess, is to be a human Buddhist monk where your chances to enter Nirvana is the highest. If your karma was not that good, you'll become a normal human Buddhist believer, who doesnt care whether they take 9,999,999 cycles to achieve nirvana. If worse karma, you'll end up being a human who believes in a non-existent God - a theist. Lower would be atheist.
And so on and so forth until the lowest rank.... bacteria and virus?This post has been edited by kmarc: Apr 6 2020, 07:24 AM
