I made an error in my statement, I meant mentally doing nothing. Not physically doing nothing.
I think there are states different to pleasure and pain, but they are difficult to describe because any discussion of positivity or negativity is allocated to pleasure and pain by most people. Personally I believe a state of peace as different to pleasure, but it's a matter of interpretation.
