This paper discusses how the very purpose of life is to build individual consciousness and how the question of a first principle arises on the current premise of ethics surrounding the debate on the ethicality of euthanasia. It looks at how opponents to euthanasia have viewed most, if not all, their arguments from the moralistic perspective that there is an intrinsic value to human life and, therefore, it needs to be preserved until death occurs naturally. It attempts, therefore, to focus on the real ethical issues revolving around euthanasia and evaluate them against a commonly held view as to what constitutes a moral judgment.

From the Paper:

"While there is certainly some validity in this argument, there also needs to be cognition of the fact that there is individual choice involved in exercising the right to determine whether or not he or she would like to go through such an experiential state. Nowhere in metaethics is there any implication of Divine enforcement of such consciousness on individuals. Rather there is an emphasis on individual effort towards higher and higher states of consciousness. It would also be of relevance here, to note that the theological view of the individual right to determine the time of death has varied down the ages."
