Correct. The ideal route is to automatically give everyone universal respect.While I contend that people are all generally equal, there are ways to distinguish oneself above and beyond one's betters, peers, or lessers. Self-betterment, self-improvement, those are the tools to go beyond just what is. Because there is the truth that virtually no one is superior while we are shackled to this life, does it not stand to reason some can push beyond this? If anything, being "other" is an excellent means to do these things, because one knows what potential is; it is experienced, it is seen, it is felt, it is desired. One can raise themselves up or alternatively, lower themselves back down or even fall terribly low.
It is also true there is no knowing "otherness" in others but in all serious likelihood, the odds of crossing paths with another of that variety, of any shape, size, shade, or stripe, is unfathomably unlikely. Perhaps we are all "other" and only some of us are aware of this but I doubt this sincerely - the few I have even so much as touched upon the faintest inklings of the idea to the few who do know me as me say they do not know the experience.
Regardless, we should not put humans down for being what they are, not even ourselves while we are here, rather we should use what we know, what we understand, what we can create to reinvent that and go beyond it.
Agreed. My kintype for example: needs an audience that they can make happy. The only species on earth that can fully comprehend television is humans. Plus humans are some species' best bet at staying extantWhile yes, I find it hard to relate to humanity I do not see myself as superior or better in any way, and if I do have those thoughts I know they stem from my own ego and lack of self worth. Sometimes I use my alter humanity as a crutch to help myself feel empowered, I am more than human so I am better, but in the end I know that's not the case.
Every living thing plays an important role, and that includes humans. We are all on our own path, and though different, no one is more imperative than another.
