I realized something and it blew my mind. I want to make sure I am understanding it correctly.
If life is 50/50 pain and pleasure then if we add false pleasures (overeating, overdrinking, buffering with anything), then this false pleasure fulfills the 50% of the positive part of life and we are left with 50% of negative? In other words, false pleasure robs us from experiencing 50% of the true pleasure?
I hope this makes sense.
Thanks a lot!
