There was a famous play of a Mr.Fish
The fish out of water, no matter what you give the fish:
a golden throne,
a bank account,
a credit card,
latest police sunglasses.

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.
