    Must  one as a human alive not  first  live for yourself  before you have the  ability to live for (take  care of) another  human ?

    Of course, according to the  laws of nature, even a  human corpse exists  for “someone else’s”  livelihood until  consumed – and  can leave under  certain (economically and morally  sound?)   conditions  also a helpful legacy  to  those   helped  already when alive.

    I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that dogs think humans are nuts.
