The mind, someone said, is never satisfied, never.  That is because it faces a cruel paradox:  the mind, which can contemplate the eternal, is composed of matter that is not eternal ~ and, worst of all, the mind knows that it is not eternal.  Like chickens and oysters, we are going to die.  The difference, however, is that chickens and oysters don’t know it.  We do ~ and the realization causes us a great deal of anguish and suffering.
