Have you also imagined a world where people help each other more? It doesn’t have to be a world made of superheroes, just a simple place where when someone suffers (even silently), there is someone else who will go out of his or her way to help… without expecting something in return. Have you ever dreamed of a more compassionate world? Most of us have.
It is because compassion is an innate attribute of the living. Michael Tomasello and other scientists at the Max Planck Institute have found that infants and chimpanzees spontaneously engage in helpful behavior and will even overcome obstacles to do so.
This only shows how naturally
compassionate we can really be.
