I get what you're saying completely.
I guess my problem with that desire is it can easily be flipped on end. That would mean that you only appreaciate a gold necklace because someone else
doesn't have one.
Everything's relative and whatnot.
i suppose it's whether you want a balanced world of equality, or an imbalanced world of forlorn beauty. There's pros and cons to both.
What if existence is like a taught guitar string?
Standing still is it's natural state, everything in balance, harmony, no friction to speak of, but also no gain from overcoming said friction.
Then you pluck the string.
The string spends all it's time shifting back and forth from imbalance to imbalance until it again reaches equilibrium.
But every time it overcomes that friction, snaps back to other side and ends up one step closer to its original state, it rejoices.
In the form of any beauty our existence can produce.
NO matter how far skewed the universe becomes, there's always that want to return to equilibrium.
Overcoming adversity, that is our strength and our beauty rolled into one
