State of living beyond non-death.

The state of the union of selves (social, species, personal) facilitated by the self-reflexive factors (creative labor, direct and indirect social interaction) that affect a world that affects me.... That state wherein opposites vector without protective, speculative, extractive, mediation. Given the historical tools of the species, I am allowed to decide for me as me - and thus to really affect others and myself.
