Did you realise the unconventional way Fullmetal Alchemist conveys the value of human lives, using the resurrection of life instead of taking someone's life?
The first law of alchemy states that humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return; to obtain something of equal value, something must be lost.
However, there is no equivalent exchange in human lives, as illustrated by these characters:
The Elric brothers
This shows the value of life is priceless. One can try and save a life by alchemy, only to realise nothing could ever be close to a life.
The law also implies that a lesson without pain is meaningless because no one can gain anything without sacrificing it.
In the character arc of Roy Mustang, we witness that he suffered and felt the pain.
He learned the painful lesson of the cost of power and the use of alchemy as a weapon that caused complete destruction and suffering during the Ishvalan Civil War and the pain of losing his best friend.
He was motivated to overhaul the military system and rebuild the country after the incident, which is a sign of humanity in his character development while suffering great pain.
if one wishes to gain something, one must present something of equal value.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
