There is a lot of trickery involved in the topic, truly.
Religions and systems of belief the world over have attempted to explore it, and many were usurped somewhere along the line.
Personally, I see no issue with appreciating and being mindful and aware of the material. Both in our own physical system, the external stimuli, and
the membrane between them.
Despite the plentiful brutality and horror of existence, which Id argue is the majority, it is an incredible and awesome thing too. Sure, its
significantly easier to just say none of it "matters" (heh), but that type of thinking eschews the vast majority of our experience. Perhaps even
all of our experience.. I cant blame 'em though, its "nicer" to live in the carefully cultivated and padded rooms of our own mind. Especially
when we have convinced ourselves that these constructs arent just in our minds, but are The Truth. Its simpler to be able to decorate the walls
and arrange the metaphorical furniture to our liking, and then proclaim it is representative of things far, far beyond human reckoning.
Id say the only issue there is when folks try to then convert others to do the same. Construct the same room, decorate it exactly the same, and make
sure its all cloned just right. Else, you will need education and convert if you want to make it into "Heaven!"
Anywho, I think the common trend of discarding meaning and value in the material simply derives from our ability to shape our perception to make
things easier to digest. Otherwise, there are some incredibly difficult things to face and we tend to run away from the things that scare us.
