The realization that the grass on either side is the same shade of green; however, we are all colorblind and oblivious.

If you have ever wondered, with a legitimate pit in your stomach, what the point of our existence is, then you are doomed by your own intellect, and there is no better example of a gift of curse than such awareness.  You see, the many fools of the world, who are blessed with ignorance, wonder only what tomorrow will bring and absolutely nothing further.  Perhaps they are not the fools afterall... Though ignorance cannot be bliss if the truly ignorant do not realize the bliss bestowed upon them, while the wise wish for such bliss but can never achieve it because of their wisdom.  Does no one, then, experience true bliss? Content or obsessed, we are all doomed the same.  In that, we can all take equal solace.
