What do you think about the concept of altruism? Kabbalah states that it does not exist in this world, for example, if your give thousands of dollars to a charity, you do so to make yourself feel better. There is a barrier called Machsom which separates altruistic from egoistic, beyond Machsom is 100% altruism, below Machsom is 100% egoism. This world is below Machsom. I'm really interested in what people think about this. I was just talking with my father about this and he agrees that there is no true altruism in this world, although is skeptical of kabbalah's claim to be the method of developing altruism and revealing the spiritual world which is the only place of altruism. I talk about this with my friends too, and most agree that there is no altruism in this world. What do you think?
