11 Let’s take for instance eating. At first, eating meat was good, so you were taught. But as you understand Higher Truth and understand that you shall not kill, you come to realize that you are encouraging the killing of those beings who are part of you and evolving as you once did. And as part of you, you can feel the pain and suffering of that soul…only if you become empathic for just one second.
12 Imagine the atrocity that has been done to the animal world in the name of food. And that IS transgression upon one another.
13 Whatever harm you do to others, you are doing to yourself. Because you are part of them, and they are part of you. And they are evolving as you are and you would not be where you are today if it had not been for them. Do understand that as a fact!

An abstract from the original transcriber, Francisco Valentin
Due to the increasing number of followers concerned over article 11-13 from last week’s transcript I will explain this through this new abstract I’ve been compelled to write:
There are two aspects to consider when addressing Article 11 from last week’s Transcript. One is the Physical aspect and then there is the Spiritual aspect to it. Let’s first tackle the physical aspect so you can make sense from facts before I transition you to the Spiritual aspect down the line:
The animal kingdom is divided in two: The herbivore and the carnivore. The herbivore has a plant-based diet while the carnivore eats flesh. Then you have the Omnivores and Detrivores; Omnivores are those who eat both plant and animal, and Detrivores are those who contribute to decomposition (or no suffering involved by eating flesh.)
Herbivores have been found to have a digestive system much different than the carnivore, making them more able to absorb the nutrients derived from plant. Bulls, for instance, are 100% herbivorous, yet pound for pound they have more muscle mass than many other animals. How could it be possible that a herbivorous animal, such as the bull, could have such a dense muscle mass? Because its source of protein comes from a plant base diet.
The greatest misconception we all have been conditioned to believe is that our protein source should come from animal protein because of the way our digestive system is designed. However, if you take a closer look at our closest relative, the gorilla, the genetic material of apes is identical to that of us humans. But they are many times stronger than us and their muscle mass is denser than ours— yet Gorillas are 100 % herbivorous. So, where does the Gorilla gets its protein?
All plants have proteins. Proteins are amino acids (polypeptide bonds.) These bonds are made up of carbon. Carbon is the basic building block for life and we all are carbon-based organism—from the first particle to the last cell.
So, where does the difference lies? One of the clearest effects of diet on the digestive system is the composition of gut bacteria (gut microbiome). There are many different species of bacteria that can live in the intestines and diet strongly influences what species thrive and which are suppressed.
Unfortunately, we have compromised our digestive system in order to digest meat. The animal-based diet increases the abundance of bile-tolerant microorganisms that produce many harmful by-products and decreased the levels of good bacteria that feed on plant starches and fiber. On the other hand, the gut microbiome of a herbivore (vegan) has the highest proportions of health beneficial and protective bacteria allowing the full absorption of nutrients from the plant base diet.
Just to give you an insight, when I shifted from carnivore to herbivore I learned in the process that I had to transition one step at a time in order to shift the composition of my gut bacteria, otherwise, I would have become ill for lack of nutrient absorption in my body.
Going back to the subject: If you look at the (long) list of the herbivorous family (wikipedia), you will realize how from the biggest mammal to the smallest invertebrate, they all share one common practice: They all are non-predators.
Predators, on the other hand, are aggressive or deceptive killers. Some kill their pray by aggression, while others use deception to capture their prey. Irrespectively of their practice, they both disregard leaving behind from their prey family members, partners or offsprings who sit and wait for those who never come back—bringing more suffering to others by their actions.
So, let me ask you at this point: Do you consider yourself to be a herbivore or a predator?
Most of these new generations of humans, especially from the western hemisphere, don’t even care to know where their fried chicken, meat burger or hot dog comes from, other than the processing plant.
The industrialization of food has made us all believe that a steak, sirloin, rib-eye, tender ribs or ground beef among many other “cuts” are simply variances of a tasty meal. In essence, it is the animal’s muscle mass promoted as meat; the same muscle mass you have in your body. Their juices come from the same fat surrounding your muscles and the bitterness comes from the same blood that circulates in your body. Actually, your butcher is dissecting and you are consuming body parts. Pretty graphic, right?
Not really, it’s simply the truth!
Over ten years ago, while I was still living in Puerto Rico, I witnessed how the pork industry came up with a marketing campaign promoting pork as the new chicken. Since pork meat when fully cooked turns kind of amber or more like the white’ish color of cooked chicken, they chose to promote them as the next chicken.
Did it work? sure it did! I remember my mother selling me the concept that pork was the new healthy meat simply because she was drawn into it by the TV ads, newspaper, radio commercial, and billboards. Yet, pork meat has been proven to be much harder to digest and must be fully cooked to avoid the food-borne illness named trichinosis.
We all are predators through consumerism. While we consume meat, those who feed us do the killing for us. As we all grow in numbers indulging our palate with all the food choices available to us, we promote the rampant genocide against those victims of our indulgences.
A few years ago, while being introduced to this higher truth by The Collective Forces of Knowledge and Wisdom, while under a deep sleep, I was taken to a meat processing factory. There I was figuring out what was I doing there when suddenly I saw a small pig limping from one of its back legs.
As the pig got closer to me, I noticed that it was limping from missing a big chunk of meat from its rear leg. I could see the bare bone and the freshly open wound from having have removed a thick slice of its rear leg. I was horrified and looked around in desperation to get an answer from someone when I saw a man whom I immediately asked why was the pig missing flesh from one of its legs.
He replied without any concern: “Oh! We do this to keep the meat as fresh as possible.”
I couldn’t bear the pain that was emphatically transferred to me as the pig put pressure in its wounded leg forcing it to limp. I couldn’t believe the answer I had just heard and wanted to hear a more logical explanation. I ran from one corridor to another and saw more pigs in similar condition. And the answer was still the same.
I wanted out but paradoxically I couldn’t leave unless I could find an end to that barbaric practice. Next thing I remember, I was back in my room but the memory of the lived experience hunted me for days, even weeks, months and still today I can vividly recall the lived experience.
So, if you felt I was too graphic when I mentioned the simple truth behind the word “meat,” it was nothing compared to the lessons I had to learn before acquiring Higher Truth such as this one. Many others were the firsthand experiences I had to live before I could shift my mind and give up over 50 years of a conditioned carnivore behavior and become a herbivore, but I’m not going to overwhelm you with more stories for now.
For those who are carnivores and believe they are not predators, all I ask from them is to burn their wallet (or credit card) and see how you would acquire your next meal if not by having to capture and kill your next victim—or have someone do the dirty deed for you.
However, keep in mind that at the end of the predator’s life, the law of cause and effect leaves them where they can no longer hunt and kill their prey. Their death now becomes a long and painful one when they can no longer catch their prey and eventually starve to death.
On the other hand, all herbivorous live a peaceful life (except having to fear the predator). They all have plenty of resources to eat, and the searching for food needs no deceiving or preying.
As one of the Transcripts read:
“If you must take a life in exchange for yours, take it from the lesser.”
Although it may seem an incomplete sentence, keep in mind that the abstract I receive translates not all in words. As I catch up with the abstract shown from the original intent, the wording stops for no longer needing to be further explained. In other words, “eat from the lesser” translates to eating from the lesser in conscious awareness, which in this case it means to eat from the Plantae kingdom.
As I transition from facts to a more spiritual, moral or ethical perspective, let’s see what great thinkers who understand this principle had to say:
Pythagoras: The Greek scholar known for his math theorem who lived 2,500 years ago, ate a fleshless diet, called the Pythagorean diet, until the word “vegetarian” became popular in the 1800’s. And I quote from what I gathered he once said:
“As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”
Leo Tolstoy: He was one of the world’s pre-eminent writers becoming famous through his epic novel War and Peace. And I quote: “A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.”
Leonardo Da Vinci—Born in 1452, this Renaissance man was famous for his study of mathematics, anatomy, engineering, art, sculpture, and aerospace. His vegetarianism has been credited to reading about the life of Pythagoras. He said, and I quote: “My body will not be a tomb for other creatures.” He also said: “I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.”
Mahatma Gandhi—Gandhi wrote: “I do not regard flesh-food as necessary for us at any stage and under any clime in which it is possible for human beings ordinarily to live. I hold flesh-food to be unsuited to our species. To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being. I should be unwilling to take the life of a lamb for the sake of the human body.”
Albert Einstein: It was his belief that man was not born to be a carnivore and he said forcefully, and I quote: “Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution of a vegetarian diet. Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”
Plutarch: He was a Greek historian, who later became a Roman citizen, a biographer, and essayist born 46 -120 CE, and I quote:
“I rather wonder both by what accident and in what state of soul or mind the first man touched his mouth to gore and brought his lips to the flesh of a dead creature, he who set forth tables of dead, stale bodies and ventured to call food and nourishment the parts that had a little before bellowed and cried, moved and lived. How could his eyes endure the slaughter when throats were slit and hide flayed and limbs torn from limb? How could his nose endure the stench?”
Benjamin Franklyn: Diplomat, political activist, and inventor, who discovered electricity and invented the Franklin stove. He has often been referred to as ‘America’s renaissance man’ and was emblematic of the fledgling American nation. Franklin wrote in his autobiography that he became a vegetarian when he was 16 years old.
Nikola Tesla: The inventor of AC Current once wrote: “It is certainly preferable to raise vegetables, and I think, therefore, that vegetarianism is a commendable departure from the established barbarous habit. Every effort should be made to stop the wanton and cruel slaughter of animals.”
These are only a few out of an ever greater list of those many who understood the nature and relation of us humans with the animal kingdom and the spiritual ways.
Let’s now move on to the religious aspect, without theological ties, of course. But having known that Christianity accounts for over 33% of the worldwide population and roughly 75% in America alone, I have no choice but to talk to them (or you) on a more direct basis:
Saint Francis of Assisi: He once wrote: “If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who deal likewise with their fellow men.”
Genesis 1, verses 29-30:
29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.”
Ten Commandments: Specifically the sixth commandment reads as follows: ‘Thou Shalt Not Kill’.
Many times the Bible mentions the word ‘meat‘ which in fact the original word was ‘trophe’ which means ‘nourishment.’
Keep in mind that the Bible is a collection of writings that were originally created in an ancient Aramaic language. Its translation goes from the Codex Siniacus, the Codex Alexandrius, to the Codex Vaticanus, all with tens if not hundreds of lost pages. The translation came from the Hebrew to Greek. Translation to Latin took place around 400 AD and for more than a thousand years it became the standard Bible for the Catholic church until an English version took form in 1320 AD.
For instance, in Luke 8:55 (old manuscripts), the word ‘phago’ is translated as meat (KJV 1769), when the Book should read “and Jesus commanded to give her food” (not meat.) Moreover, as I searched for other versions, (ASV 1901, NASB 1995, WEB 1833, DBY 1898, EBR1902, YLY 1898, DR 1750, AV 1611, NT 1849 and NT1852) none of them mention the word “meat.”
Under Luke 21:34, Evangelion Da-Mepharreshe — (Old Syriac-Aramaic Manuscript of the New Testament Gospels) Jesus said: “Be on guard, so that your hearts do not become heavy with the eating of flesh and with the intoxication of wine and with the anxiety of the world, and that day come upon you suddenly; for as a snare it will come upon all who dwell upon the surface of the earth.”
However, when I confronted said passage with a New International Version (NIV) it turns out that the word “eating of flesh” was substituted by the word “carousing” which translates to alcohol consumption and noisy behavior. Which by the way, is conflicting in itself for redundancy following the next word which is “drunkenness.”
Please let me show you:
Luke 21:34 (NIV) 34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.
The feeding of Jesus to the multitude has been extensively used to argue or justify the meat-eating behavior of many. Let’s study this passage in depth:
The original version of the “Feeding of the Multitude” story only refers to bread, not bread with fish. “Fish” apparently got added to some gospel verses later on. If you look at other accounts of the same incident, from what I’ve gathered, for example, Irenaeus, Eusebius, and Arnobius mention the feeding of the 5,000. In every case, they discuss the bread but they don’t mention anything about fish. Therefore, fish is a later addition to the scriptures.
In fact, at the New Testament, when Jesus is talking about the feeding of the five thousand, he says, ‘Don’t you remember when I fed the multitudes and all the bread that we took up?’ He indeed never mentioned the fish.
Let’s take a look:
Matthew 16:9 “Do you not yet perceive? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you gathered?” No fish included with the loaves there.
Mark 8:16–21: 16 They discussed this with one another and said, “It is because we have no bread.”17 Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: “Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? 18 Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember? 19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up? “Twelve,” they replied. 20 “And when I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up?” They answered, “Seven.”21 He said to them, “Do you still not understand?”
Others have taken bible verses out of context. For instance, I’ve heard in many instances when people make reference to Jesus as he said that what goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.
Here they are making reference to Mathew 15:11. However, when you read Mathew 15 from verse one, Jesus was scolding the Pharisees who accused him of having his Apostles not washing their hands before eating. Clearly, this passage has nothing to do with food choices.
Again, translations by men have made these and many other interpretations vague, confusing and unreliable. But then I ask: How could it be possible that someone like Buddha or Jesus could allow the killing of a life? Does it make sense to you? Not to me nor to those many whom I have made reference above.
I can go deeper into other religions and religious practices, but I feel I have given you enough evidence to prove my point.
Unfortunately, food consumption has become one of the greatest pleasures as humanity has been conditioned to indulge themselves through one of our physical senses: the sense of taste, aka palate.
Since I became herbivore, every time I talk about food choices, I get so much resistance from those who consume meat that it baffles my mind. I must agree that I was there once, but my resistance never came from denial—it was just lack of willpower…a simple case of lack of willpower and the unwillingness to let go of the pleasures from what I loved to taste the most…over and over again. Sounds familiar?
Here I must add that becoming a herbivore does not limit oneself to lettuce and tomato. The food choices are far more abundant than people think. The list goes from legumes to roots and from greens to fruits. And the list of recipes is far more extensive than those you may have seen.
To end this abstract, The Transcripts calls for us all to detach from what’s holding us back. Attachments bring suffering, and suffering comes from not wanting to let go.
If after you read this Abstract you keep having doubts about your practices of eating meat, then it is no longer ignorance but open resistance to keep indulging from your appetite.
My final words to this subject will not come from me but from the Collective Forces of Knowledge and Wisdom as their end statement in many of those Transcripts I have yet to publish:
“Now that you know the truth…what are you going to do about it?”—Transcript
I certainly hope this abstract served its purpose as you detach from what’s holding you back.
