    What if the NTDs aren’t aware oh what they are doing? What if they do this to stay alive? Like we sometimes hunt for food, so are the NTDs. We kill for food and they are killing people for their own use but ever stop to think this? Maybe this is true. If it is i feels sorry-ish. I hope they will stop and maybe come to peace with our body and kill off the bad bacteria. Please leave a like and subscribe to me if you fee the same. Goodbye :)

      Well on the upside they are definitely not aware much at all, they aren't anywhere near the level of a chicken or dog. If they were aware, well...even human morality has unelievably shocking differences across time and culture. Regardless, we'd still end up having to react like people do to getting the receiving end of any other act of violence. The only possible option for harmonious co-existance would be through science and genetic engineering-for example how scientists are trying to figure out how to grow organs, meat, and even replacements for amputated tissue from stem cells and the like so that we no longer have to rely on donations and killing for those things...
