Wrapped up in our quest for thrill and excitement, we overlook the real unmatched wonders of this world, the wonders that have the advantage of having happened.
Stupefied by our constant hunt for thrill, excitement and entertainment, hungry for stories of the supernatural and easily misled by false visions of the transcendent, we fail to recognize the genuine wonders.
Consider this. Has it ever occurred to you that the world humans inhabit is one made of a very strange fabric? Future prospects, real and false memories of the past, religious believes, hopes, ambitions, prestige, status, power structures, norms, laws, hierarchy are all the driving force behind our actions not only on individual level but also in case of human groups. Whole societies and nations are animated by the same kind of fictitious structures whether these are collective myths, nationalism or supernatural tales. Granted, these haven't emerged in some sort of vacuum. They have their neural and hence biological basis. Nor do they override the physiochemical laws of the world in which they play out. But this shouldn't distract us from realizing the oddly fictitious nature of the human experience. Our world is to a large degree a mental construct.
