The human physical organism, and all life in general, is
motivated to find comfort/security. All behavior is motivated by this
need/drive, to find, maintain, and optimize comfort and/or the idea of
The premise of this universal drive for comfort implies an equally
universal experience of discomfort which creates, energizes the movement
of that drive, does it not? If we were already fully comfortable there
would be no motive force to support a behavioural drive towards comfort.
One of the interesting aspects
of the human psyche is that it
appears quite capable of
*never* feeling sufficiently

out of reach, apparently just
to keep the striving game (for
which it is so superbly suited
by virtue of evolutionary and
social conditioning) going.
