Y'all talking about kindness is this, kindness isn't that, got a short story for you...

George Price, basically developed what is still the best accepted evolutionary, mathematical and biological interpretation of altruism.

Basic idea is, that you're more likely to be altruistic towards those more genetically similar to you, as a way of ensuring survival of the species.

He became depressed at the implications and attempted to prove his theory wrong by committing random acts of kindness.

He gave away many possessions and eventually was evicted from his home. Unable to help homelessness, and unable to prove his theory right or wrong, he committed suicide.

Just a fun little story.

Wait, are you saying it's too sweet, or that you hate it and it's killing you?

@Wildfire_desu well, if you do manage to come up with something better just shoot me a PM. However, until then we are going to stick with the official translation.

The LN's official translation of the title isn't even a translation, it's a rewriting of the title entirely that ignores several unambiguous words (such as slave) because....reasons.

@ijan1: The LN has an official translation? That's a weird translation choice if you ask me, though I guess it could work if you use the "transcendental union of the soul/mind with divinity or the divine reality" definition.

@Meridis My bad, must've misread somewhere.

@xieshu initially it was going to be sorcery but it was decided to go with mysticism since it is used in the official translation of the LN.

How did I misunderstand fitness? We used a very similar description and I made it very clear that it's circumstantial, using a strong group being placed next to a volcano in my own example. My end point was that humans manipulate their environment, especially social environments and that fitness of a group of humans could be decreased by kindness if they constructed such a social environment but the species as a whole would have reduced fitness in that environment as it's made to work in favor of a few more suited to that environment at the cost of cooperation.

Well this was an incredibly heartfelt, warm chapter with light philosophy. Also, kinda sad, but mostly heartwarming.

Somehow, it's also kinda...satisfying to see a woobie-type character like Nephie actually lash out and bite back at the backstory bastards, all on her own.
