Article reads: These two ideas – sacrifice (as self betterment) and empathy – are humanity’s two drivers, competition and co-operation. I reckon we have them in roughly equal parts, and their blending has been our species’ secret of success. Jesus’s genius was to merge the two in a single act, reversing the traditional sacrifice of other for the self, to give sacrifice of self for other.

The middle-term holds the polarity together, and provides the wellspring of vitalism. Remarkable!
