1. I thought along those lines, but more in this fashion, where one might have more ''baggage'' and thus weighing more πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

  2. The painting is called "Benatar's asymmetry". David Benatar is a South African antinatalist philosopher. The painting is original and is a metaphor for the asymmetry between the pain and pleasure. Sensationally pain is far stronger or heavier than pleasure so the injured pigeon, though standing on the empty pan and even bleeding, is heavier than the other pigeon standing on the pan full of seeds, enjoying them (seeds are intentionally of the color they are to be associated with golden coins/wealth).

  3. This beautifully displays Benatar's asymmetry. His philosophy recently became of interest to me although I disagree with almost all of his work. I find his views on our perception of our own pleasure and happiness to be fascinating. It's just too hard to give credit to a philosophy that calls for the voluntary extinction of the human species.
