Is it just me, or why is everyone seeking some kind of personal notion of satisfaction? It seems to be a better life mentality to relish in the cold reality of accepting the inevitable pains of life. That is, see pain as satisfaction. Rejection is a kind of pain, but what's that adage "Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb." Is this not a concept? Like, in my own opinion, I believe that the meaning of life is to get to the next logical step until life ends and that we all do this subconsciously under the guise of other beliefs and that the swarm interactions of all people doing this is what causes the empirically/scientifically verifiable notion of progress. Is this way of thinking an established belief system? I'd like to read/practice up on it if so.
But, then again, other people's next steps are going to conflict, which produces one of three outcomes: 1 winner, 2 winners, 2 losers
But, to win is to attain satisfaction, no? I don't know, I just think that satisfaction should happen upon you as an unbeknownst consequence of your endurance. You know, I think what I'm asking is in the attainment of satisfaction is it better that it be sought after or given as a consequence?
But, then, among all those who have attained satisfaction as a consequence of their endurance at least one will have sought it prior, which kind of seems to nullify my purposed righteous method of satisfaction attainment.
Ok, now I'm having a one-electron universe moment where it doesn't seem to matter and all is equivalent.
