    you set up the discussion asking is 'A' more important or is 'B' more important.

    from the start you want put things into a dialectic, this or that.

    but the world is not flat and black and white. how do you measure importance? how do you measure forward/backward?

    is there a need to decide? why can't 'A' and 'B' be just as important, or as unimportant? is human life that clinical and measurable? if you want to quantify everything, why don't you try quantify the value of your existence?

    If I did not set up an either or question, how else would I be able to draw the discussion we have had here?

    Everything on earth is not balc or white, everything is a give and take, but to examine an issue deeply, you have to draw some boundries and criteria, and I choose to set is as I did.

    I don't need to quantify my existance. That is not part of this discussion.

    in the first place, feelings, affection, love cannot be quantified. therefore there's no value to your question. as such there's no value to a discussion coming from that question. go ahead and compare the level of importance of your love ones, you'll know it's unnecessary one day.

    Hi DP,

    actually your question is a tough question, but don't worry we actually dont' have to decide.. to save who (to love who).. since if we can..we are God. we can decide the act, but we can't decide the fate..

    if u ask me who to save first..if both drop in water, i will save the nearest one then try hard and faster to save the next one.. and leave the rest to God..

    don't always give yourself a thought like this, it is very not healthy to our mind.. =)

    don't be so pessimitic(wrong spelling?), I guess your character by your nick..ha, please be optimitic!!(wrong spelling again?)..

    This kind of question is very personal..there is no right or wrong answers..

    Case 1:
    A person being brought up in a run down family, father drug addict, mother prostitute..then this person found his new life when he met his wife..who will he choose..

    Case 2:
    A person who is well groom/taught by his family..marry a wife who is lazy and pushes all house work to you..who will he choose..

    Only YOU will know best! We can't argue anything on the choices made by anyone here..

    yeah, i guess it is not comparable..

    like 'little', u don't say more little, or most little, or littler or littlest..

    important -- is not comparable in some where .. cheers.

    Logical thinking is good..however, emotion/panic usually overrules..end up all may die..

    The who to save first question is typical. I was drawn to that question in the first place when I started this thread.

    However, over th course of this discussion, I feel the importance of this question is not whom to save. You will save the closest one first, as Lens has so eloquently put it. However, it's our frame of mind.

    Who is more important to me? The answer to this will guide me in how I live my life.

    I don't feel questions like this is bad for our psychic, but in fact, it allow us to reflect on what we believe, wehat we treasure, and what we hold dear.

    Probably it's of no value to you because your mind is made up and not capable to accept alternative thoughts and ideas on this topic. It's quite ok, because you won't have to think about it any more.

    If I ever meet your parents, I will congradulate them of having such a dutiful son.
