    Mhmm. I believe IPs are the next level in evolution however their time has not yet come
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    This obsession with "strength" is the root of all evil.
    Ambition has lead to many terrible things in human history.

    But depending on the emotional health of the individual, it has also been the root of much good.

    The strong are meant to rule. The weak are meant to serve.

    I imagine a certain effort on the individual's part that others aren't able to accomplish as much exists, which would show a certain worth over the others in the specific field. The admiration may come from the more able person which could be translated into the wisdom of the correct choices in the field.

    That explains a lot.

    It's what people make stories out of. Stories make legends. Legends create inspiration and admiration

    I could understand an instinctual drive to appreciate strength, but besides that? Anything?
    It depends on what sort of strength it is, is it resilience or competence or capacity? None of those things are the same, there would be different reasons for admiring any of them.

    In the end I think it comes down to unconscious or conscious reverence for life, people, provided their natural inclinations havent been blocked and redirected in some other way, I think are biophilious.

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture
