Why do we even want to know

if we're not looking for change?

What do I mean by, 'change'?

The individual who is capable of adapting

to certain truths about reality,

gains a measure of control.

For instance: 

You are increasingly sick.

You don't want to go to the doctor,

but you know that the quicker you adapt

to the fact that the doctor will likely 

improve your situation, the quicker you

get your life back.

The person who cannot,

(or more likely, will not)

find their way to act against their

sense of discomfort, and therefore, 

on behalf of their recovery,

is earmarked for the

evolutionary dustbin.
