Friends reference :D
No it's not. I'm a very philosophical panda.
OHHHH you changed your name from philosophical to penis??? I knew there was something different!
well i will believe you then
in my head it's a Friends reference though
But very true :]
I am disappoint
Well I know pandas watch Friends :o
I honestly thought of this on my own, mmmk. I should publish this as the "Philosophical_Panda Theory of Human Kindness"
The things you get for doing charity are things you give yourself. So are you really receiving something? Are you really gaining personally from it since you already had what you are giving to yourself?
Well, even if one did something for good will, they can't help but feel good. It's not being selfish to feel happy because you made someone else's life better.
I've thought about this too, it's a very depressing thought.
i've seen this as a post at least twice. can i say, repeat?
well if you want to look at it that way, their technically is no such thing as "good will" so there's no point in saying that the acts are selfish.
ah the good old altruism debate. just about as decided as religion, law, racism, etc.
Nobody believes me when I talk about how each act is led by egoism.
