Once upon a time in the universe that spontaneously came about in an uncaused way and in which all life evolved from a unicellular common ancestor, there lived some different organisms:
-Andy the amœba
-Gerry the giraffe
-Slate the enslaved human
-Reginald the independently wealthy human
Andy's independent existence came about after an asexual reproductive event. He was ready to conquer the world and enjoy eating other simple organisms through enveloping them, but while he was on his way toward eating one of them, he himself was eaten by a predator and died.
Gerry had grown to healthy middle-aged giraffehood and was the the most skilled among his friends at reaching the most delicious leaves and other foodstuffs, and yet shared generously with other giraffes and of course his children. However, one day he stepped badly on a tree root and broke his leg. Hyenas approached and slowly tore him apart while the other giraffes moved on to other trees.
Slate was a faithful slave to his master Reginald and served him well, even though Reginald was cruel and often whipped him just because he enjoyed it. Slate brought Reginald a significant amount of wealth through labor that grew in skill as Slate grew older. Reginald never showed any appreciation for it and never put forth much effort to ensure Slate's well-being. One day, Slate contracted a simple infection that could have been cured with a few days' rest. Reginald withheld that rest with full knowledge of the infection, and Slate died at the age of 39.
Reginald, the aforementioned slave master, had been born to a wealthy family with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth. He was shrewd and always took advantage of others, especially his slaves, to increase his personal wealth. He never worked a day of manual labor in his life and treated his slaves and family in ways that they found most distasteful and often painful. As much as they pled with him to be merciful, he grew crueler and more controlling. He died at age 94, peacefully in his sleep.
Andy, Gerry, Slate, and Reginald all went to the same place - death and decomposition.
