    As humans have evolved on this planet to a place which in our minds puts us further and further above all other living creatures, with it has come an increasing and dramatic disconnection from reality. The heartless and barbaric nature in which we dominate and abuse the other creatures and life on this earth is not only disturbing in itself but what is further more troubling is the way in which the majority of humans who reep the benifits of this abuse remain either blissfully unaware or completly disconnected to the brutal killing of the animal which has become their bacon and eggs. This can be seen especially in the west where, unlike in some eastern third world countries where carcasses still hang for sale on the street side, meat is now simply mass produced (grown and slaughtered) behind closed doors and distributed country wide onto super market shelves, plastic wrapped and neatly packaged and portioned out to look nothing like the bloody dead flesh it was only hours before. In this age, a child (or even an adult) could pick up a packet of chicken from the super market shelf and to them it may as well be a box of cereal. This series does not simply seek to uncover the brutality of the way in which we use the other living creatures with whom we share this world but the way in which we do it with such casual ignorance. Further more, I hope to go further- past the thoughtless act itself into the phase of reflection and the intrinsic moral nature of the human spirit. To connect with the pig once more as a living creature who has as much personality and value as you or I. To bring us back down to earth. 'it's like the human spirit finally rises up out of unconsciousness and the moment of realisation and awareness is captured. he has become humanised, no longer a barbaric animal but a realised creature of consciousness. his awful act is what has sparked the awakening, so even that is not in vain.' -Amanda Ridd Read Less
