Better seems like a mantra for humanity.
For Socrates, acquiring self-knowledge was a path for becoming better. Alexander stood fighting for a better empire.

Better is the key pillar of the marketing and advertising industry.
- Want to be healthy, drink this daily protein supplement.
- Want to perform better in the next marathon, eat these.
- Want to continue looking better at old age, start using anti-aging cream.
Like a lab rat, we are on a treadmill, running for being better. Some externals are directing us towards it.
We are moving far away from ourselves and what should have been our priority: the better soul is getting erased.
