The hierarchy of people in my world is as follows:
There are the people I love
The ones I know
And those I care about
The logic of allocation and of the categories themselves follows a set of principles, thusly:
- All people fit in at least one of these three categories;
- The difference between the categories is indeed hierarchical (in descending order, it goes Love to Knowledge to Care);
- Each category contains at a minimum the concept of its name as well as the qualities of the concepts namely of the categories below it;
- To be precise, the category of Love contains both Knowledge and Care; that of Knowledge also contains Care. Care is the fundamental.
- Minimally, all people are cared about;
- Love is of course the maximum expression;
- There are no other categories;
- “The people of my world” means all people of every world.
- “My world” refers only to the hierarchy I hereby describe, in which I receive and differentiate all people. Likewise, all people are all people: I define no hierarchy of a person per se, just in their reception and treatment.
- Nobody can enter or exit my world without entering or exiting the world itself.
This defines the hierarchy of people in my world.
