I am making no point about involvement of God, the spirit of caring. Rather, I am arguing that biological forces, as embodied in DNA and the baggage it carries, is almost certainly not responsible for the refinements of these basic instincts. Cultural forces need to be evoked. The creation of skyscrapers has to do with longing to be recognized and to stand out, with the cost of land in Central Business Districts, with the refinement of building techniques to solve a host of practical problems, and with phallic symbolism. Just to warm up.
So don't go all reductionist on me with skyscrapers as a "mere extension of basic arithmetic" or I will tell Rachel about your poetic remarks upon the cello and she will make flattering remarks back at you and probably embarrass you.
