cooperation vs competition.
    #3861103 - 03/03/05 03:57 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

i was just having a conversation with one of my roomates.
long conversation, but i just wanna bring up this one thing here.

if you look at the world throuch the perception of a christian style, seprative, religion. where everyone has their own soul and their own destiny, that is disconected from everyone elses' around you. or.

if you looked at it from a unifed perspective, ie; the earth is a sphere and we all live on it together and thus influence each others experience of life.

your approch and perception of life and, the reponsibilites it entailed would be very different.

at the moment i think everyone in the world is in one of these groups, or some varient of it.

without making examples, hopefully u can see how these 2 types of people inevitably conflict.

in short, the idea is one type, the first mentioned, would be subservient only to their own needs and goals. irrelivent of others around them.
the second type, would be subservient to themselves and everyone around them as equally as possible.

just thought it was interesting.

well, there arent really names for them. It is just different levels of self-absorbedness to absolute awareness. The two you gave are though, the extremes, or better yet, the two sides which do oppose

Competition = reaching objectives
Cooperation = improving processes

Both are needed, the problem is they always seem out of balance.
