I feel that the biggest fear we all must have is the possibility of unpleasantness. Yes, we are all pain/pleasure creatures, trying to avoid one, while trying to gain, or wishing for more of the other.
But, here is my theory. I think that we are always looking for the pain, as a poor attempt to “dull” it’s constant force, or to find ways to adapt to it.
It must be why we always post the negative stuff, and the positive stuff just doesn’t get our attention.
Why horror movies, and violence seem to be the “attention grabbers” and happy things just seem dull.
I’d like to listen to a newscast some evening where it was filled with positive things, instead of events of death and destruction.
I’m not sure I will see it my lifetime, but I surely hope some of our younger folks see it in theirs.
