Whatever you give to the fish out of water, it will not work, until there is water –
then all the other things will be very much appreciated.
Once the fish is under water he will enjoy his sunglasses and everything, but above the water not so much.
So, this is our predicament that we are here in a place were fundamentally we cannot be satisfied. Therefore, boredom is nothing new to man, nothing new to animals, it has been existing since time immeorial.
