Life expectancy was longer century back(over 100 years if excluding war deaths) because of cleaner environment and natural foods compared to modern 60-70 years life expectancy and artificial packed foods. Quantity of population is more today but quality is less because of several scientific equipment comforts like vehicles that are cause of polluted air/Prana(life-force).
Is Euthanasia considered morally right?
Today more people are easily handicapped and lethargic because of several equipment comforts and prone to depression, suicide and mental traumas because they fail to use the power of intellect(long term memory) which is also the master of fickle mind, root of mental problems. Even inferior animals dont commit suicide or suffer from depression because of short-term memory, its only with modern humans who are taking pills for depression, turning atheist, committing high suicide rates and wasting precious human birth, because their souls'(of an animal) evolution level is weaker than human body's evolution level as they dont know how to use the intellect, inherited from God in their Man's sheath which Omniscient God itself has used to project this entire creation. Even an animal can be trained to perform certain repetitive actions by its master, so learning to operate devices like phone, computer or vehicle is not real wisdom. Wisdom does not come to a person if he can memorize some complex scientific theory, or get several degrees or operate equipments, its only cramming, real wisdom is when he understands the most the simplest things that is his mind, his purpose of life, humanity and the nature.
So the Jivas go to heaven, and have a very good time, except now and
then when the demons give them chase. In our mythology it is said
there are demons, who sometimes trouble the gods. In all mythologies,
you read how these demons and the gods fought, and the demons
sometimes conquered the gods, although many times, it seems, the
demons did not do so many wicked things as the gods. In all
mythologies, for instance, you find the Devas fond of women. So after
their reward is finished, they fall down again, come through the
clouds, through the rains, and thus get into some grain or plant and
find their way into the human body, when the grain or plant is eaten
by men. The father gives them the material out of which to get a
fitting body. When the material suits them no longer, they have to
manufacture other bodies. Now there are the very wicked fellows, who
do, all sorts of diabolical things; they are born again as animals,
and if they are very bad, they are born as very low animals, or become
plants, or stones.
In the Deva form they make no Karma at all; only man makes Karma.
Karma means work which will produce effect. When a man dies and
becomes a Deva, he has only a period of pleasure, and during that time
makes no fresh Karma; it is simply a reward for his past good Karma.
When the good Karma is worked out, then the remaining Karma begins to
take effect, and he comes down to earth. He becomes man again, and if
he does very good works, and purifies himself, he goes to Brahmaloka
and comes back no more.
The animal is a state of sojourn for the Jiva evolving from lower
forms. In course of time the animal becomes man. It is a significant
fact that as the human population is increasing, the animal population
is decreasing. The animal souls are all becoming men. So many species
of animals have become men already. Where else have they gone?
