Kay Burley, like many in the media, has an exaggerated sense of her own importance. Therein lies the problem.
6. Interesting point about deadness:
Deadness – There isn’t even a word for this assumption, which almost everybody assumes… It is that ultimately everything is or will be Not Alive, but Dead. We exist in a Dead universe (the stars, planets, moon are all Dead; all submicroscopic stuff is Dead), and living things are made of Dead components. Ultimately, everything is reducible to Physics, and the entities of Physics (waves, particles, forces etc) are Not Alive, not Conscious, lack innate purpose. What is denied is our inborn assumption (and that of most people in history) that reality consists of living, and (in different ways) conscious Beings. Apparently everyone believes this at some level, but Modern man denies it – by assumption.
