Why don't we focus on benefitting eachother?

I think this might be a bad aim for individuals. For example, suppose I have a child. If I were to aim to benefit everybody, then I would have to neglect my child. I think that maximizing (benefiting everybody as much as possible) also might not be a good aim: we need rest and leisure, time to ourselves, in order not to burn out.

我真的不知道。但這是一個非常重要的話題(對我來說),我喜歡討論。 答案可能取決於我們如何定義“好處”這個詞。還好嗎?是從長遠的角度還是短視的貨幣/舒適感?


我和你在一起。 100%。 但爲了讓某些東西持久,它不應該成爲主要焦點,而應該成爲副作用(出現?)。而且,這只是我的意見。

有些問題並不容易回答。而且,有些根本不可能(不是出於失敗主義心態,而是直接看到看似無法回答的事物,給了我純粹的快樂!)。 對我來說,在生活中牢記這些問題是關鍵。 人們總能找到做/不做的理由。如果你問我,我會說這是幸福和智力的問題。個人或所有人的幸福?如果你看得足夠深,就不存在沒有他人的個人,反之亦然。更直接地說:我們融入了我們的環境並專注於自己(取決於你有多貪婪(在 RL/CS 意義上)),生活只是短視。

How can we benefit everybody as much as possible?

I really don't know. But this is a very important topic (to me) that I love to discuss. The answer might depend on how we define the word "benefit". Well being? in a long-term view or short-sighted monetary/comfort sense?

Shouldn't our aim in society to benefit everybody?

I'm with you. 100%. But in order for something to last, it shouldn't be the main focus but something that comes as a side-effect (emergence?). And, this is just my opinion.

Some questions can't be answered easily. And, some can't be, at all (not from a defeatist mindset, but seeing right in the eyes of something that seems unanswerable, gives me pure joy!). To me, keeping these questions in mind while going through our life is the key. One can always find a reason to do/not-do. If you ask me, it's the question of well being and intelligence. Well being of an individual or everyone? If you see deep enough, there exists no individual without others and vice versa. To be more direct: we're embedded in our environment and focusing on one's own (depends on how greedy (in RL/CS sense) you are) life is just being short-sighted.
