To me mystery and magic feelings(that i love) are sensations that our species had learnd to use as a tool to survive,i use to tell between friends that for humans the reality is a sensation,but what we feel is not real allways,so we make religions,legends,politic,cience,culture to explane why our senses fool us so frequently:-)

yes,in our days the young people are more free about the stectic of decay,in my generation we glorifie the life and the brigth side of human kind,but there are allways more than one reality and if wewant to be completly honest there beauty and magic in that to

I agree, Antonio. Larkorb is a very creative person.There is beauty in every form of life. We do not like to see decay in animals because we are scared. Fear is a big factor. Also strong emotions like sadness and grief are attached to it.But there is some form of beauty and magic in that too.

Emma,life and dead are the two faces of the same coin,of course to us(living creatures)life is more likeble(i dont know if is well writen),but dead is a thing that is allways present in our minds,i dont like also decay images of animals,because it is to similar to our species,in the flora world,it's diferent(I know that plants also have sentitiv organs but it's another scale),we can apreciate all the process of born,life ,decay and dead in a more estectic way,to me it's a beautifull form of respect for all the living organisms,
