Perspective

It was thought that what differentiated man from beast was the ability to see things from another being’s perspective. This has proved not to be the case (see: Signs of empathy seen in mice)

I think what differentiates man from beast is the desire to make another being see from one’s own perspective.

Do you understand what I mean? Did you get it?

  2. I did. Does that make me a beast?
