Dissertation on Pain

Uploaded by blademaster78 on Jan 22, 2000

Pain is a universal constant. It is a reaction to anything detrimental to one's well-being or comfort. In any form of reality, it must exist. Pain is never any easy experience, but it is necessary. After all, can one truly appreciate pleasure without pain? Or realize the relief that comes when pain is absent? Pain also strengthens. Pain increases tolerance for itself, but also allows the body to increase its defenses against injury. It is a warning of injury, and an indication of what shouldn't be done.

It is inside where we can't reach, and what we don't truly understand. The eye sees not itself, and so it is with the brain. Logical conclusion from emotional pain is impossible, because our logic is affected by our emotional center. We cannot observe the brain from its exterior, and so our efficiency in dealing with the problem is greatly impaired. To make matters worse, there is no black and white.
