Here's the basic math of sanity:

The number of things I own will always be

The number of things I

This will be true even if I own everything that is on my must-have list today. Because there will be things I don't want today but might start wanting tommorrow. And there will be things which I don't know exist, but as soon as I discover their existance I will start wanting them. And there will be things which have not even been invented yet, but as soon as they are invented and as soon as I discover their existance, I will start wantng them. As I said, this category is fundamentally infinite.

Therefore what I have (finite) will always be less than what I don't have (infinite)

Chasing infinity is a recepie for madness. Sanity is rejoicing in the finite.

The number of things I own will always be

*finite*.The number of things I

Well said Farid but what to do with capitalistic attractiveness?
