The Ecosystem Within Us

Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure.

But I must expla­in to you how all this mista­ken idea of deno­un­cing ple­asu­re and pra­ising pain was born and I will give you a com­ple­te acco­unt of the sys­tem, and expo­und the actu­al teachings of the gre­at explo­rer of the truth, the master-buil­der of human hap­pi­ness. Sed ut per­spi­cia­tis unde omnis iste natus error sit volup­ta­tem accu­san­tium dolo­re­mque lau­dan­tium, totam rem ape­riam, eaque ipsa quae ab illo inven­to­re veri­ta­tis et quasi archi­tec­to beatae vitae dic­ta sunt expli­ca­bo. Nemo enim ipsam volup­ta­tem quia volup­tas sit asper­na­tur aut odit aut fugit, sed quia con­se­qu­un­tur magni dolo­res eos qui ratio­ne volup­ta­tem sequi nesciunt.

No one rejects, disli­kes, or avo­ids ple­asu­re itself, becau­se it is ple­asu­re, but becau­se tho­se who do not know how to pur­sue ple­asu­re ratio­nal­ly enco­un­ter con­se­qu­en­ces that are extre­me­ly pain­ful. Nor aga­in is the­re any­one who loves or pur­su­es or desi­res to obta­in pain of itself, becau­se it is pain, but becau­se occa­sio­nal­ly cir­cum­stan­ces occur in which toil and pain can pro­cu­re him some gre­at pleasure.

To take a tri­vial exam­ple, which of us ever under­ta­kes labo­rio­us phy­si­cal exer­ci­se, except to obta­in some advan­ta­ge from it? Neque por­ro quisqu­am est, qui dolo­rem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, con­sec­te­tur, adi­pi­sci velit, sed quia non numqu­am eius modi tem­po­ra inci­dunt ut labo­re et dolo­re magnam ali­qu­am quaerat volup­ta­tem. Ut enim ad mini­ma veniam, quis nostrum exer­ci­ta­tio­nem ullam cor­po­ris susci­pit labo­rio­sam, nisi ut ali­qu­id ex ea com­mo­di con­se­qu­atur. But who has any right to find fault with a man who cho­oses to enjoy a ple­asu­re that has no annoy­ing con­se­qu­en­ces, or one who avo­ids a pain that pro­du­ces no resul­tant pleasure.
