- Are you a friend or enemy to yourself? How do you view the parts that make up who you are? Do you see or recognize a reflection of yourself in those you perceive as others? Are there certain roles necessary in order to carry out a paradigm of life based in compete-for-survival or conflict? Do we tend to form perceptions of others in the form of a conflict? A two-pole arrangement in a three-pole reality? Us or them? Friend or enemy? Me or you? Is there any other way to interpret these perceptions? Does the idea of ally hold any meaning in a game where enemies do not exist?
