Death is like water in that it flows everywhere in life and we can’t prevent it’s flow and that, like water, it is incompressable. If you get water in two syringes joined by a tubing and press down on one of the syringes the other one will life an equal amount. If the pressing syringe is half and inch wide and the uplifting one is 0ne inch then the amount of up lift will be equal to twice the load and half the distance. If you push the smaller one down one inch with a pressure of one pound then the uplift in the bigger one will be 2 pounds but only half an inch in height. This is a simple law. Death is similar. If you push the death toll down in one area then it raises in another.
For instance the New Zealand police are mad keen to achieve a zero death toll on the roads and keep having campaign after campaign to reduce the death toll. But every time they reduce the death toll on the road it rises in another area, especially in flight and drownings. So the overall death toll remains the same every year despite all human attempts to reduce it.
The films about young people who avoid death in one area and then die in bizzare deaths later on is based on this principle. Trying to reduce the death toll each year is like trying to prevent pregnant women giving birth (this is an especially relevant parable as death of the body and brain is simply the rebirth of the soul into the next world!)
So instead of trying to prevent death why don’t the police do something they could achieve? Like reducing the number of accidental injuries on the road. For every death at present there are 14 injuries. This figure can legitimantely be lowered by man because every soul is divinely protected against “casual” injuries – IF we ask for protection.Thus the number of injuries could easily be cut back to 9 – easily! That would mean a huge saving in hospital, rehabilitation and time of work costs, not to mention mental scarring costs to the victims. We can do this simply because we are allowed to reduce injuries but we are not allowed to reduce deaths.
Does anyone out there think the same way?
