However, by coming into existence one does suffer quite serious harms that could not have befallen one had one not come into existence.
The album is divided into two parts: "Abiogenesis" (tracks 1 to 8) and "A Coming into Existence" (tracks 9 to 12), which is Origin's first ever EP from 1998. All tracks on ‘Abiogenesis‘ part originally written between 1990 and 1993 Tracks 1, 4-7 - as Necrotomy (pre-Origin) in 1990-1991 Tracks 2, 3, 8 - as Thee Abomination (pre-Origin) in 1992-1993. All tracks on 'A Coming into Existence' part written as Origin between 1997 and 1998, now released as a special bonus re-release and first worldwide release ever.
So in Chapter 2, 'Why Coming into Existence is Always a Harm', he argues for the book's central claim. If you're not persuaded by the end of this chapter, you won't be along for the ride. Chapter 3 offers important supplements, and wants to show both that the harms here are considerable, and that our strategies for denying this uncomfortable truth are many and varied. Suppose you accept that bringing someone into existence causes that person a serious harm, and that this harm isn't compensated by any substantial good. Could it, other things being equal, be right to start that person? Fairly clearly, this couldn't be right.
This book argues for a number of related, highly provocative views: (i) coming into existence is always a serious harm; (ii) procreation is always wrong; (iii) it is wrong not to abort foetuses at the earlier stages of gestation; and (iv) it would be better if, as a result of there being no new people, humanity became extinct. Although these conclusions are antagonistic to common and deeply held intuitions, the book argues that these intuitions are unreliable and thus cannot be used to refute it's grim-sounding conclusions. Keywords: existence, harm, procreation, abortion, future people,.
