Talking about human needs, suppose that there are two possibilities:
- We have a need called A and that would be definitely possible to satisfy A anytime we desire.
- We do not have any need called A, and therefore there is no need to satisfy it at all.
My question is: Supposing that satisfying needs is always joyful, which of the above options is more preferred?
Let's take eating as something humankind needs to do in order to survive. Given there is no poor man living on the planet earth, and it's always possible to eat anything you want without much effort, and given that eating is always joyful, what would you prefer more? Is it preferred to have this need and satisfy it, or is it more preferred to completely eliminate the need for eating? The point is that if you didn't need to eat, you would also lose the joy of eating.
