1. When the friend and the group are greater than us, in other words, we regard our friends and the group as higher than us in order to feel their greatness;
2. When friends and the group are beneath us;
3. When they are equal to us.
If I perceive them as being smaller than me, then I am able to give to them like a big one gives to the small.
I have a certain kind of communication with them in either case, when I either receive the greatness of the goal from them, or ignite it in them by introducing my might, my investment into the greatness of the goal, the greatness of unity. And all this is in order to reach a state of being equal to them. And then we will really be friends.
The comparison must always be the goal. And the state of being below or above them is the state when I adjust myself in relation to them.
