I didn't say that we would all turn into self-deniers concerned only to help others. I
said we would achieve an optimal moral society. Such a society would always bear in mind
the absolute equality of all subjects (not in the 'royal subject' sense!), with each
person knowing their actions are received by none other than themselves. The best moral
action would be the selfish action, seen from the perspective of the entire self rather
than the fragmentary self. Imagine you share an island with a person for one year, and
you know that the next year, you will become the other person on the island at the start
of the same year again - ie, you will experience everything from their perspective. How
will it change the way you behave?
So does this universal person include dogs? apes? spiders? rocks?
