Is 'life' an attribute that can be arbitrarily ascribed?
i.e. is my adorable baby bumpkin dollikins really alive if I treat her as if she were?
Is the reality in which she is alive for me sufficient for me to ascribe to this sack of fibrous material and organic cotton the attribute of being alive?
I really want her to be alive
Why do we have open ended prompts in school when the teachers are looking for a narrow set of answers?
What a brilliantly cutting observation. I have felt the frustration of that also recently in school. Maybe it serves as a metaphor for the narrow-minded majority on a broader scale > world stage > life?
