In a previous post I mentioned the Abstraction Ladder in relation to the Ladder of Inference and the Semiotic Ladder. In this post the focus is on the Abstraction Ladder. If you look at the upper two steps of the ladder you see they are titled “Asset” and “Wealth”. But where would “Greed” be? Isn’t Greed an abstraction on top of “Wealth”? After all, people who are greedy easily factor out dimensions that are irrelevant. This is logical because you wouldn’t be succesfull being greedy if you factored in dimensions like “Wealth”, “Asset” etc. So how could we foster a world where Greed isn’t beneficial? Simple,just replace Greed with Love and everything will turn out fine! Good luck!
How “Greed” Can Be Considered a New Abstraction and How You Could Change The World Into a Beautiful Place
