When someone is called a user it means they are selfish and "use" people but recently when i was stoned and thinking i thought that aren't we all users? We use everyone in our lives for our own benefit whether we realize it or not. For example we use our friends to entertain us and give us things to do. If our friends offered no entertainment would we stay friends with them? I wouldn't so am i a user? It may sound like a load of bollox but just thought id share my stoned thoughts with a few who bothered to read. :laugh:

yeah it's sort of like saying everyone's selfish
in a way everyone is
so in what situations is being selfish a bad thing? cause i think sometimes it is
i mean, everyone wants stuff
maybe when it's about ignoring people's wants
other people's or one's own...
everyone's wants are important

We use and are used. You are right :thumbup: Do you think there is any more to the story? :grin:

One of the core principles of Taoism, and I believe several other Eastern relegions, is that total enlightenment comes only with the cessation of desire. So rather than selfishness just being an inate human quality, it could also be seen as a boundry on the path to greater understanding.
