Shelved ideas

I’ve been thinking a bit about Maslow’s Hiararchy of Needs. What if there existed a type of being in which the levels are rearranged or where some level is missing? What would that be like?

I toyed a bit of applying this for the elves but decided against it. Messing around with things like this would create beings so alien they would be too hard to relate to. I think the exception would be beings like goods, or anthropomorphic personalities (like Death in the Discworld books).

It’s an interesting idea though and I might return to it later, but for now I’ll put it away.
