This is a classical example of not being able to value things correctly.
Human beings have imagination and can create understand and believe in concepts.
This concept of having concepts started when we were hunter gatherers and were based on experiences in reality.
From there to the present society has been a long journey. We have mapped understood and created knowledge about a lot of reality.
Unfortunately along with that we have a simulated a great bunch of fictitious belief systems which are causing havoc and forcing us to do to in human things.
Understanding a simple concept that anything in human that you do which get justified in the present state of things is based on some belief system that is is not in alignment with reality.
This small check can help us correct our course and coexist with dualistic and confusing thoughts within our self ,behaving and nurturing beautiful meaningful relationship with other human beings, balancing and making productive use of of all the natural resources without depleting them and replenishing them.
You can find lots of sach basic assumptions been questioned and optional other possible scenarios on my various writings.
Would love to share deeper insights on the same.
