Human conception from different philosophies
Human conception from different philosophies, scientific and biological contributions, during the second half of the twentieth century, marked social life with their contributions but were imbued with ideological currents with a mater conception.

Scientific and biological contributions during the second half of the twentieth century marked the social life with their contributions, but they were impregnated by ideological currents with a materialistic conception of life, both in the way of living and in the original conception of that same life as human beings.
It is the biology/embryology that gives us a certain reality; the life of the human being begins with the fertilization of the ovum by the spermatozoon, forming the zygote, a new human being.
2. Is a spirit or soul incorporated into the zygote at the time of conception?
The transcendent vision affirms that the human being is immortal, is a corporeal-spiritual being, it is about living a temporal process for each human being created. Those who postulate that the soul exists, have a vision of transcendent openness of life and affirm that soul and body are created directly by God at the moment of fertilization, the origin of bodily existence, as affirmed by the Christian conception. From this transcendent vision the vital soul gives shape to the body and the soul-body union is the human person and this does not end in the death of the body.
The materialist vision advocated by the atheists denies the Spirit and the infused soul, the personality of the human being would be a product of genetics, of hormones, of culture, of the processes of education, of environmental ecology including food, which is received in the family context and social environment and that all this reality disappears completely with death.
Philosophical conceptions such as the Hindu and Buddhist claim that it is a spirit that has thousands of years of existence and is continually reincarnated in an evolutionary process to achieve its perfection. These philosophies do not give too much importance to historical processes, since they understand the world as an illusion, a reality quite opposed to those who adopt materialist positions, especially in the West.
3. An existential crisis underlies the economic crisis
We are in the second decade of the 21st century, immersed in an economic crisis, but it is impossible to forget what underlies the background, the great crisis of human and transcendent values. And the human being tries to define the new paradigms that will govern the society of this century, the answer given to the questions and questions that arise is fundamental.
The fall of fundamental values, the decline of the birth rate in Europe, the policy of the only child, the darkening that is deliberately being done to Christian roots is part of this crisis, although most are not yet aware of it and only intuition is felt for an uncertain future.
It is necessary to refund the true identity and essence of the human being and make it understandable for all people, since the future of society, of which we are all called to build, will depend on that reality since to advance as beings Free and responsible human beings, we need to know a comprehensible guide along the way, to know what existence can bring, as individual beings rooted in the Earth, being solitary as members of the same species. The guide is in recovering the personal sense and the conception of life that we give to our incarnation and death.
4. Why the philosophy of life from conception to death?
This way of marking patterns of the future is not something new, since it is the reason of all philosophies and religions since antiquity, although it is true that each has different and very specific contributions, highlighting the immortality of the soul since Plato or the Resurrection of the human being from the Christian vision.
This reality of the transcendent vision of the human being is a question that atheists question, due to a materialistic conception and thus we find several currents that coexist in the social system in which we live.
And it is important to accept that man transcends this temporal reality and is not only a biological being, which is formed at the time of fertilization and extinguished in death, but is a corporeal-spiritual being. Thus being born and dying are part of a process of mortality, the purpose of which is to achieve the human maturation necessary to acquire a full and eternal life.
5. The desire of parents to have a child and the freedom of the new being.
Each child, new being, comes into existence as an individual being, but not in a solitary way since it is the parents who have to provide the material and physical support with the contribution of germ cells, which are necessary for body formation, this assumes that parents desire the child, it is a personal act of dedication and love, they let the Spirit act, but it is not they who choose the child, but it is the Spirit and in that spiritual reality, the child, who is formed by issuing the genetic message goes beyond any parents' voluntary action on it, if the genes are not manipulated.
Thus the parents, without interfering in the process of choosing the formed embryo, would be the ones who freely choose to have a child and are open to the Spirit, who by infusing the soul to the new human creature creates the essential body for the new spiritual being, you can come and start learning from the incipient body, being a subject who will learn the new lessons that are necessary for him, for the development of his human fullness.
It is very important for human life to be fulfilled, to understand that the process is of three people: parents who act as parents and are parents because they co-create a child. This personal triangularity if it breaks or evades due to lack of responsibility of one of the parents, leads to deficiencies in the child, but also in the father or mother. And parents must understand that children "are not things" or property of them and that the child, new being, is another person and has the full right to life once it has been conceived and exercises personal freedom, since the same embryo, the son, acts from the beginning intelligently and autonomously.
Since the child is born, the process initiated in his conception becomes more visible, it is continuous learning, the infant is an explorer and is shaping his personality, using reason and does with his life what he that it deems appropriate, within the educational framework marked by the family. The parents must exercise their relationship with the child, to love him, to perform good custody and guardianship, feeding and educating him so that he can develop as a human being, taking into account the emotional and communicative aspect that father, mother, and child must keep in their lives while opening up to the social environment. The mother for her special connection in pregnancy must take care of her health, emotional aspects and vital communication relationship with her child.
Thus, each child is a piece of heaven for parents and fathers are their heaven to the child.
