Being now the dominant species on Earth, every living person carries the responsibility of ensuring the proper living care and respect is given to all other living species co-existing with us. By being sympathetic or empathetic, preferably both, there is no harm on being moderate in imposing our will upon beings that we do have an inter-dependency relationship with, in one way or the other.
Before Abraham Maslow added the human need for Self-Transcendence, his theory emphasized the needs that involve Physiological, Safety, Love and Belonging, Esteem and Self-Actualization. If we pay a little bit more close attention to how pets (or animals) behave towards their surroundings, we would notice that they’d surprisingly have similar tendencies as elaborated by those exact same needs. Although living species do differ in terms of their average life-spans and reasoning, the environmental changes are what shape behaviour as the saying goes that ‘the more things change, the more they remain the same’.
For computers, the ‘Master-Slave’ architecture carries a totally different logic as compared to an entirely extreme circumstance when the same terminology describes how living things treat each other. Although the latter is weaker than the former, the time will come in handy when at the very least, some living being, if not a person, does have something good to say or remember us by.
