> How is this possible?  If at any moment you think you are better than anyone else it could mean you have a superiority complex.  Which is useless.  You don't exist unless someone else acknowledges your presence. (Can you hear the tree drop when no one is listening?). Please don't assume anyone is unique.  There are way too many species on the planet.  One individual is like a fish in the sea, a grain in the sand or a bull in a ring. How can you possibly map it?

Not to mention the logical impossibility of more than one person in
the world being non-delusionally proud, if being proud means you're
better than everyone else.
