This pyramid of life or hierarchy of needs is a common concept when attempting to better one’s community. Not everyone is on the same level of the pyramid and thusly you will not get much community-helping-sharing within that community when most are still on the foundation of the pyramid, i.e.: food, water, & shelter. Those whose foundation has already been built need to realize this when attempting to better the community they reside in. Additionally, one’s foundation is not always built solid and can crack or crumble at anytime, thusly falling your upper point on the pyramid that you may have been at before.
