Worth investigating or just a bit of nonsense ...?
Everyone has times when they hoped to feel better. At the basic level, maybe it's better-than-sick, better-than-sad, better-than-ouch, better-than-hungry, or, if you're on a big-bang-Buddhist bender, better-than-deluded, perhaps.
OK, feeling better would be nice.
But "better" by definition carries with it a something-else, something against which to compare or contrast the "better" that is sought or attained. So by making a reality of whatever is "better," a foundation and support system is also created for what is "worse" ... in short creating more of what anyone might hope to escape in the first place... sort of an out-of-the-frying-pan-into-the-frying-pan effort and direction... seeking relief by imposing discomfort.
It sounds as wacky to me as it sounds true and human.
Is there a better mousetrap? I'd ask the question, but we all know how reliable 'better' mouse traps are.
