Rocks are made for climbing, that’s what they are for. Going up against all odds until there is no more.
Oh, sure! But, showing off is often a surprisingly multi-layered business. We enjoy it when kids do it. We love it and even pay money for it, when performance artists do it. With our competitive thinking, we are mostly quite critical about it when normal people do it. What is it other than sharing? One may be tickled by the admiration he can get, but mostly it has not all that much to do with self. “Look, isn’t it great that this can be done!” “I enjoy this, I enjoy it even more when I can share it.”
