In this area of the land live a lion and me. I’m slightly smarter than him, he’s MUCH stronger than me.
It’s an open land and we get the visit from several other smaller or not very smart animals. We feed on them, sharing the load. They satisfy us so I don’t need to bother the lion, and he doesn’t need to bother me.
We leave in peace and respect each other on our strengths and weaknesses.
Occasionally one of our visitors gives us trouble and we wonder what if we don’t let them in anymore. But shall we close the borders, I’ll be his prey.
