Plasticity of the Sense of Self

We expand and retract our sense of self without even knowing it.  Objects that bypass our threat filter and we feel sympathy to we expand our sense of self to include.  If you are in the store and someone walks off with your shopping cart you feel bad because the cart has positive survival data for you and the loss of it has negative survival data.  You have temporarily expanded your sense of self to include the cart and the items in it.
