Cooperation just means raising the level of competition from the individual to the group. Instead of man vs man or man vs nature it becomes group vs group or group vs nature.

Absolutely not. Cooperation plays an important role in pack animals like ourselves but we are constantly competing even with those we cooperate with.

But that is not the same as "everything is a competition."

I also said, competition is part of the deal.

It is absolutely the same. Every single second we're on this earth we're competing with other humans, other animals, and even plants for resources at the most basic level. As you move up through the levels to human social structures we are still competing in every aspect of life.

Life's not fair, and life's not nice.

Competition is just one way we can interact with people. We can choose to be competitive or choose another way to be in contact.
Some people are unaware that it is even a choice and just react or act out as they have learned. Slaves to their emotions and/or learned patterns of behavior.
Can be fun but time will always make the competitor a loser in the end. Having competition a foundation of your life is a childish choice.

You must have gotten yourself a good bottle of pills if you're saying that's wrong. Competition and cooperation are not mutually exclusive, nor do they cancel each other out.

That's an interesting, rosy way to look at life. Completely false, but whatever floats your boat

It's the cooperation that resulted in human evolution, not competition.

Sceince.


If you're not competing, doesn't mean you are a loser.

It just means that you're not a jock.

Isn't saying "everything is a competition" implying that completion and cooperation are mutually exclusive?

I said that both play a role.

The fact that you're equating "jock" with basic competition just shows you lack understanding as to what competition really is. And once again, competition and cooperation are not mutually exclusive, nor do they cancel each other out

And I'm still puzzled by the early 80s "jock" use as an insult

I still say this is not accurate.

Even in the most cooperative unit of all, the basic human family, the family members are still competing for resources within the family.

Competition is also subconscious

We make exchanges and comprise some of our individual interests in favor of larger group interests all the time, but even when we make those compromises we are still working toward what we perceive to be our own best interests in the aggregate.

Why do we nurture our family and friends? In direct exchange for them returning that nurture in some form whether that return occurs sooner or later. Why do we virtue signal? The return we're aiming for may not be material, but may take the form of social capital and influence. Regardless of the form of the anticipated ROI it's ultimately still self-serving in one way or another.

"You're better than that" is notable and laudable on the social basis precisely because - for the most part - humans are not better than that. Same as when man bites dog. That's usually not how it goes.
