How could it? Your decisions create only positive results. . .oh, wait a minute. . . are you saying that you purposely tried caused me dis-utility by your actions. Hmmm (hmm). Maybe it doesn't work the way you think it does, maybe it is ... magic (hehe).

If I trade a portion of something I have an abundance of for something I need, but lack, with someone who has an abundance of what I need, but lacks and needs what I have...than is a win-win, not a zero-sum game.

I don't know. Seems reasonable. Why did you have an abundance, and what dis-utilty was generated by you taking ownership of more than you needed? Now to ask the same of the other party? Who or what suffered a loss or a missed opportunity due to a transaction that was only possible because of an initial unequity?

That you assume a "dis-utility" doesn't make it so. Perhaps I grew a bumper crop of tomatoes and my trading partner more peppers than needed...how is our trade "dis-utility", "unequity", or anyone else suffering a loss?

Do you want a debate? Of course it all comes down to hypotheticals. And yes, I assume, based on my understanding of human nature, human needs, economy and agriculture.
But of course I don't know. I would be happy to suggest a few dozen possible sources of dis-utilty. I am also happy just to say, "OK, you win."

Of course you could find inequality in the most benign and mutually beneficial things, Vic. It's who you are.

Mortar ** vs. Synthetic **
I've tried both

Your thesis makes no sense. "Zero sum" means no benefit from cooperation. Consider the carbon cycle, oxygen cycle, water cycle, a bazillion other cycles associated with living things. All give benefits from cooperation.

I submit that all also have resultant disutility. Equal, in the long run to the benefits.

That we choose to ignore or simply cannot measure those results notwithstanding.
