    All humans owe respect to the Earth and to all creatures on it.

    Contribution. We all do something to the world, have some impact on it, offer it something, owe it what we will. The birds are happier with feeders in the yard.

    Example:  Nicholas Roerich was a genius born into good wealth (e.g., his father was a prosperous legal servant of many wealthy individuals, and they owned a summer retreat of some 3,000 acres).  Roerich gave the world his iconic spiritual paintings, and his profound love of people and their cultures.  Many of his works were behind the scenes, such as his suggestion that the familiar all-seeing eye and pyramid design be placed on the American dollar, and his suggestion to Igor Stravinsky of the idea of the "Rite of Spring," (with Roerich's set designs inspiring and guiding Vaslav Nijinsky's innovative choreography).  http://roerich.org  In other words, the wealthy genius owes God, himself, and others the most Godly behavior possible, regarding genius and wealth or other resources.

    Gratitude to the folks who made his wealth.

    The desire and wisdom to use it to make their children's lives better, not merely to make his life better.  A rich man is responsible for how he uses the power his wealth gives him.

    Since he is a genius and has the means to cultivate his intelligence, he must do so. Rest and relaxation is essential but, but No slacking. No goofing off. OF THOSE TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH WILL BE REQUIRED.

    That's purely a matter of opinion, so put at least two brain cells together if you have that many and form your own opinion about it.

    Same as a genius born into the middle class or poverty.
