A Contemporary Definition of ‘The Ethical’:
Co-operate or Sink
- “It arises, to lapse into metaphor, when people begin to see that, first their own society, then human beings at large are all in the same boat, and it is a precarious boat that will sink if there no co-operation among those who are on board.”
“Your brain uses information it already has to interpret what you see and feel and hear and touch and smell.
This interpretation can easily distort the ‘reality’"
Pushing the limitations imposed by social norms allow us to reconsider our approach to the way we interpret the world around us
