“Teddy-Bear” -ing

There’s a “human-behavioural reminder” that is fivefold “Creature-Comforts”-like,
but seriously ‘picturing’
(i) the material-needs (-cum-‘fancies’)
of a human-being
or of a human-organisation;
and

(ii) the relationship needs (of those human-beings)

like this:

Shark
totally focuses on its own material-need, totally disregards both the material and the relationship needs of the ‘other-player-or-party’

Tortoise
totally disregards its own and the ‘other-party’s’ relationship and material needs (by closing-down under its shell)

Fox
allows some ongoing ‘relationship’ by taking what it needs but leaving plenty (for it to come back for ‘tomorrow’)

Teddy-Bear
‘sacrifices’ some of its own needs, in order to maintain the relationship, in situations where “your need is greater than mine”

Owl
maintains both its own and the ‘other-party’s’ need and the two-way relationship
[this ‘Owl’ may be ‘parallel’ with the “historical-human-archetypal” understanding of ‘Sophie‘ as being the “all-loving matriarch’]
