the reduction of something to nothing more than a commodity is what you are doing.
are you aware of what you are doing? do you even care?
to copy the work of another without a thought other than to gain monetary enrichment – is money your God?
do you understand from where the material you work with eminates? how it comes into being? do you teach others of this eminence? do you reach for the deepest understanding through your work and pass that knowledge along? or are you just seeking financial rewards in the moment, unaware and uncaring of that which you may destroy along the way?
please think about what you are doing.
I realize it may be hard to understand when there really is no intention other than personal enrichment- but try to imagine another view.
