He seems genuinely conflicted, rather than firmly opinionated, certain only that people should take these questions more seriously. DFW on lobsters: PKD is pretty easy to find, no link.)As a practical matter, you should hesitate to kill spiders (unless you live somewhere they are poisonous)Households spiders eat all manner of pests!Or maybe he's being coy, to avoid alienating the gourmand. I leave mine alive, and almost never have insect trouble. Fair, but that's a very different rubric than contemplated by the article.

They don’t just crawl, they kind of hop about (or so three year old me remembers).

So, to answer your question I have a standing agreement with the arachnids that inhabit my abode: I know you’re here and that you eat bugs, which I appreciate, however if I see you, game over.

In fact, if you're concerned, like DFW is, about minimizing suffering for all things that "exhibit preferences," then maybe that's too broad. On the other hand, maybe other insects don't pass the sentience/sapience test, only spiders do, and everything's fine, and it just leads to Jainism.

Maybe then you don't want spiders slaughtering a bunch of other insects, because they exhibit preferences in turn. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jainism But if you use the "insects are dumb" out, you eventually hit a more general carnivore problem.

I'm curious if he hesitates to kill spiders since writing this article. If your take is strongly influenced by utility, you might not necessarily object to eating lobsters in the first place.

And maybe that's fine, just two distinct approaches to this question.

Also, many spiders give you rashes even if they don't bite you. Having to do with the fact that lobsters (according to Wallace) have decentralized nervous systems consisting of ganglia wired in series, so that slicing through one of them might not disable the creature's nociception upon being immersed in boiling water.

You might just be keeping it from flailing around, paralyzed but still "aware" in whatever sense a lobster is aware of anything.

And to act so is immoral."[1] https://books.google.com/books?
