Our desires manifest themselves as greed or fear. We try to gain or to keep loosing something; life, fame, wealth or power. When the ego overrides the compassion we resort to violence. Violence can be physical, verbal or subtle, like cunningness. Violence has only one aim, to hurt the object of the hate.

Higher the truth we try to reach, more our conclusions diverge from other people's, since our pre-formed beliefs are founded on our passions. This is why most sincere and able persons want to choose different roads to reach the same goal.

@ashwin723,
I would say pretty damned close.

My only quibble is in regards to "greed"

I'm not sure "status" and "greed" are quite the same.

It may just be semantics, but "greed" has a connotation that I don't think works well within zoology.

@Finn dAbuzz,
One possible cause for violence;

When the person in front of you at the grocery store has fifty coupons and the clerk looks them over after ringing up everything only to discover half of them are expired. So the person wants those items removed from the balance making the clerk have to find the items and rescan them to delete them. Then the person struggles to dig out change to have enough to pay the total.

@Krumple,
And then they try to pay with New Zealand food stamps and Canadian identification?

@roger,
New Zealand does not subject its benefit claimants to the humiliation of food stamps, it's a very civilised country.

@izzythepush,
Oh, okay. Sure would be frustrating to be behind one in an American supermarket, though.

@roger,
I doubt a benefit claimant from New Zealand could afford to travel to America, but I can see the frustration in standing behind someone attempting to pay with something that doesn't exist.

@Fil Albuquerque,
There's a short story by Malcolm Bradbury about a group of people who try to stop murders set off by temperature. According to the story there's an optimum temperature for killings, any cooler then level heads prevail, any warmer and it's too much effort. They're staking out a particularly cantankerous man on the day the thermometers hit that temperature. I can't remember how it ends.

Why do you persist so with your lunacies, Roger?

@izzythepush,
Interesting!
I was thinking in more simple terms. He asked for a Universal explanation.
this came to mind:
