And it guesses wrong time and time and time again...that's the beloved "pursuit of happiness". It turns out that happiness is the result of a realization of the inner self, not a pursuit of outer elixirs.
The pursuit of happiness is the root of all evil. It's done out of logic, out of the mind, and the mind has no heart. If the mind thinks logically that raping a little girl is happiness, then the mind commands the body to make it so.
It's sick, it's evil, it's a paradox.
