I am always surprised at the reaction when i tell people that humans are hard wired for altruism, and that people feel better giving than receiving. Even if the neurological case may not be convincing for some
, few would doubt how difficult this existence on earth is. If it is this hard for modern humans to survive this tech aided world, imagine how are it was for small tribes of proto-humans. A neanderthal was not an island, and the culture of giving and socialization is a key aspect to our evolution. We are social altruistic beings. I spent only a few months working at home, and i felt wrong for months after. Don’t get me started on working in a lab.
