i think it's just a matter of defining selfishness. like i said the people in the expirement don't
cooperate when they aren't getting anything back later, which seems selfish to me.
it mostly just requires not thinking of selfishness as a bad thing - just realizing that people
want some form of recognition when they go out of their way to do something for another
