I am wondering if ethics and compassion are to be developed concurrently and
if they could be treated as separate. Based on my own experience, I am not
the same person I was 10 and 20 years ago and I wont be in 10 years from now.
All the warnings, hazards and pitfalls others have pointed out could be
useful and one has to keep an open mind and make a decision for themselves.
