1. Even though the genetic difference between a human being and a chimpanzee is smaller than that between a human being and an orang-utan, Man thinks he's morally justified to do vivisection on chimpanzees. This is based on his conviction that he possesses the essential feature X, that sets him apart from all animals, including chimpanzees. Through the ages, theologists, philosophers and psychologers have suggested solutions for this X. 2. Dr. Mengele, who experimented on people in Auschwitz, fills us with the deepest hate that we're capable of. How could he do that? Surely he was a human being himself? I consider it probable that he could do it because he was convinced he didn't experiment on people, but on Jews -- and Jews weren't people, they were vermin. Ungeziefer. They missed the vital feature X, that he himself as an arischer Herrenmensch of course possessed in great amounts. 3. Now let's look at this. A decade or so again NASA launched a space capsule with all sorts of data, that indicated that we are intelligent creatures with the feature X. It also contained the location of the Sun and the orbit of the Earth. Imagine now, that this capsule indeed will be intercepted by a civilization of highly developed creatures, that possess feature Y and differ from us as much as we differ from animals. Then they come to the Earth and subdue us. 4. Three questions: One: Are these creatures, on the ground of their feature Y, morally justified to do vivisection on us the way we, on the ground of our feature X, do on animals? Two: If no, are we still allowed to do vivisection on animals? Three: Who at NASA was so stupid to give them the location of our planet? Shouldn't we, knowing ourselves, try and camouflage and hide?
