Stimulation as a painkiller

Pain is a symptom of a deeper cause. Taking a painkiller makes the pain go away, but doesn’t address the underlying issue.

Boredom is a symptom of unrest in the mind that festers under the surface. Stimulation from work or from the constant chatter of connected devices makes boredom go away, but doesn’t resolve the deeper mental unrest that causes it.

People intoxicate themselves with work so they won’t see how they really are. – Aldous Huxley
