NeedsThis thought came up during a routine outing for corporate supplies. I suppose one may incorrectly infer that we are the kind of people to gloat over the misfortune of others. Nothing could be more further from the truth, however I will freely say that there is a significant issue of tolerance when people try to live scientifically. Try to be anything more than human. I'll give an example: what happens if you deny yourself food when you feel hungry? The hunger comes back around twice as strong, deny it again and it comes back quadrupled in strength. Same deal with other human needs, deny yourself intimacy or sex or anything on an emotional menu and it will come back and humble you. Therefore it is hard to feel true sympathy for those who squelch their desires repeatedly and then are shocked and appalled when it overpowers them at a later date. We once thought just like that before we came together and formed the Guild. Divided in our respective houses or spheres of influence, we were considered the devil for surrendering to something greater than ourselves. Until one day we finally came together as exiles to discuss it in an intelligent fashion. It is not a sin to acknowledge those needs, the real sin is in denying them or pretending they don't exist.
