So we evaluate human lives
5 unrelated people's lives are more important than 1 unrelated person
1 related person is more important than 5 unrelated
1 Dalai Lama/Einstein is more important than 5 convicts
Yet we fail to realize that it is just our conceited view that "x is more important than y because I say so". Then we engage in conflict with people who disagree. There will be some people who feel x is more important, whatever x is, and others who feel that y is. Their differences are just differences in their conditioning.
An opinion is just a collection of conditions, including this opinion that I am expressing. There is nothing special or important about it, it is just something that arose based on my genes, upbringing, education, interactions with people etc. If I don't think it's special or important why am I saying it? Again conditioning that drives a desire to express my thoughts.
