These thoughts have to do with effects on others— not necessarily effects on their feelings, since they may never find out about it, but some kind of damage nevertheless

[What does it all mean, Thomas Nagel]

I don't understand the bold sentence. Is it connected with "these thoughts"?

Thank you!

  • The damaging effects on others. Yes they are connected to these thoughts.

The damage is referring to the effects on others. The thoughts have to do with an effect, which is some kind of damage to others.

The word 'nevertheless' in this case means that it's not damage to their feelings, but some other kind of damage.
