Human Beings Need to Want More

Why is it that we as humans are never satisfied and always want more? More money, a better job, a promotion, a prettier spouse, more power, etc. Why are we never satisfied with what we have?

I often say to myself if I get this I will be eternally grateful and never ask for anything again. A day later, I'm on to the next thing I crave.

You must always strive for more. The moment you become complacent is the moment you get past up.

You have a club, Oog? That's nice. I have a club with a sharp rock through it.


Now I have your club, and your woman, and your cave.

You get a little older, you probably won't feel this way.
If you do, you haven't matured.

re: Human Beings Need to Want More
All human nature can be traced back to evolutionary necessity. At one point in human history resources were scarce. We were hunter-gatherers and our tools weren't very sophisticated. Thus humans (and most animals) have an instinctive drive to seek out and acquire more and more resources for survival.

Even when times are good (say, we have plenty to eat), our biological tendencies tell us to "get while the getting's good" and keep eating so that when the inevitable scarcity comes we will have enough fat stored to get through it. It's why obesity is an epidemic and why it's so hard to get over cravings.
