I've been thinking about it for as long as I can remember: Is a bagel happy to be eaten, knowing that is what it was "born" for, or does it want to be left uneaten, even though it knows the "goal" of a bagel is to be eaten? Does it approve of that goal, and wait with great breathless anticipation for its fulfillment, or would it prefer to be preserved in a freezer so it can remain intact longer, or would it prefer to be passed over at brunch and risk eventual mold, never having been put to any use?
