A thought previously made by the philosopher Arne Næss.

Arne Dekke Eide Næss (died 2009) was a Norwegian philosopher and environmental activist.

I had no idea that he had made the same observation.
The older we get, the less esteem many of us have for our narcissistic species.

But don't old age and contempt feed the sensuous pleasures of one's own narcissism? Much more than to the species? A narcissism far more connected to the Western species than to the Asian?
