Also, how can it be selfless if it required yourself for it to happen?
Also, is it possible for a consciousness to exist without a perspective? Ethics are, as it seems to me, an ordered perspective.

Scarecrow Jack.. that is what I was thinking. You have to think about the intent/outcome of the act at that moment. That is the perfect example... to "lose out and gain nothing.." So, there can be selfless acts?! Carrot Sprite..Energy/Action, itself, is not gained or lost, right? It has to go some where so it is always there. Really are you gaining anything?
