    I've been thinking a lot about this lately because we were talking about it in one of my classes. By the end of the class we had all agreed that there's no such thing as a truly selfless act. I had this opinion before class as well as after and during. But I think I've finally figured out a truly selfless act. Tell me what you think... There's two people you and someone else. You are given the choice to be killed or the other person will be killed. You choose to die simply because you believe your life is of less value then the other person. You don't believe in heaven and don't think that anyone else will ever know. That person may not even know. A little far fetched I know but wouldn't that be a truly selfless act?

    I feel like that would be a selfless act, yes. because you're not doing it for yourself, or for affection from the other person if they don't know about it, and you're getting absolutely nothing out of it.
