All around us are physical paths and roads leading to somewhere. It seems logical that unphysical paths indeed will lead somewhere as well. But as we climb through this metaphysical jungle gym, we often end up right back where we started with nothing to show for it except a few months of being lost in thinking about the differences between all the jungle gyms we encountered on our quest. Yes the world is fascinating, but fascination wasn’t the only place I was navigating towards.
My experience causes me to think that when one is already on the top of the food chain with all basic needs met, anything more really doesn’t make a sustained difference in daily life. But if that is really true for everyone, then we’d all have the same stuff and means to experience whatever we craved at anytime. And we don’t.
