Posted elsewhere, but thought I would post here as well:
As a side-note, perhaps -- it is interesting to notice how what is considered positive or pleasant is embraced while what is negative and painful is shunned.
If something is pleasant, does that make it true?
If something is unpleasant, does that make it untrue?
How much effort is expended on behalf of what is pleasant as distinct from what is true?
Just thinking out loud.
