In order – at least to a small extent - to be able to answer such questions, it is important to know what is the actual basis for our being. The answer to this question is astonishingly simple:
Does this make you rub your eyes? Are you not astonished that it isn’t a chemical formula or a physical process which is the basis of our being? Such processes are naturally an essential precondition for that which we call «life» on earth. The basis of our being however is significantly deeper. Let us therefore analyse this sentence step by step:
