In the real world of negotiation and mediation we just can’t introduce something with good intentions without having devastating bad results. I’d say that is a damn good synopsis of the human condition. Think about every good thing in your life and then think about how much bad things you deny in order to have this good attitude up on life. I would bet there is an overwhelming amount of bad things in the world. That’s why we have to focus on the good things. That’s why we have to have fenced off neighborhoods and H OA’s. We have to institutionalize what is good and focus our vision on what is good. And then will let the fallout just happen — to someone else.
Anyways. I’m not entirely sure why we need better pain medication. I mean granted we don’t want to be back in the Civil War times where you have to amputate someone’s leg or pull pull it out of someone’s gut with no anesthesia at all. But nowadays there are so many things that qualify as pain it seems it is merely correspondence with the need for more types of medication that takes care of pain.
I think it would be interesting if someone did that sort of study to classify all the various types of feelings that people have that they want to call pain. I bet we would find that there’s really a extremely small amount of sensory experience that his actual pain that any sort of medication can really deal with, and that the rest of the stuff we call pain is really just based on this fundamental problem solution attitude upon life when we’re always addressing problems with solutions that are proposing to anticipate new problems even while their applied to pass problems. Problem problem problem narrow your vision focus clearly on the good things fence off all bad things from the goodness. I bet most of what we call pain is just maladaption, variations of traditional and familial manners of dealing with what is proposed as a righteous life. The perpetuation of sickness where is otherwise there would be health.
OK im preaching and I’m way too sarcastic; anyways here’s a repost:
