Altruism’s Assistant

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Which of our egoistic needs will be less valued and which will be better in the integral state? That is, will there be a need to change them all?

Answer: There is no need. If egoism will begin to work in the right partnership with altruism and they complete each other, there will only be benefit from it.

Think about what is happening in our body: a huge amount of all kinds of reactions, connections, disconnections, mutual destruction, births, and so on. A body that is assaulted by a multitude of hostile elements and germs destroys or corrects them. There is a great struggle, constant work of analysis and synthesis of the data obtained, and decision as to what to do with them.

In other words, the body cannot function without positive and negative forces; they both must operate.

So when an altruistic force appears against egoism, the egoism enters into balance with it, immediately becoming equal to it in importance. It is a system that maintains itself in homeostasis, in balance, in harmony.
