If not "Ignorance is Bliss" so at least a very precise (synaptic scale) hibernatory 
neuropsychological functioning [most 'phasically' mediated by GABA and 
tonically by endogenous opioids and augmented in two contrasting manners 
by serotonin (serenely) and dopamine (eg. it contributes addictive delight to dare-devils)] 
of folk -- a function that normally automatically and very effectively avert 
futile agony or hopeless anxiety through selective unconsciousness.

A full swoop (in dEPTh sweep) concEPTual grasp of this aspect of how we are,
is possible (to suitably percEPTive people) by their learning to appropriately apply 
(in a Tolerance-principled, not just science-aligned but 'SEPTIC-humored' mental-intellectual manner) 
safely long-handled and flexible tools (or simultaneously protective and corrective lenses) that are 
the key ingredients of my Exceptional Philosophical, Evolutionary neuroPsychology Type, Terminology.

[Can only gamble on the existence of an audience that might accEPT and enjoy 
my homeopathic doses of etymological "turDgidness" 
and otherwise 'light-making' (ameliorating of adverse but insight-providing associations) 
thematic subterfuges of fuzzsilly sem_antics.%-}]

-- 
Partly inspired by MAD (cold war shaming acronym), I arrived at EPT
[e.g: eclectically Explanatory perversely Pert
philosophical Terminology] and by 'concEPTual' lenses/tools saw/grasped how
and why AEVASIVE preoccupations (personalities) normally preclude making
in dEPTh sense of things - including of themselves.

Of the letters in the acronym for "Ambi-advantageously Evolved 'V-word'(e.g. Vital, Veritable, Vexed) 
Actention Selection (System) Incorporating (amongst much else but in an instructively characteristic and central role, 
and with a spelling suitable for concEPT-building) Various Endoopiates", AS(S) stand for how we
think/emote/behave based on our individual repertoire of mutually as if competing {partly by lateral
inhibition) whilst cheered and booed (by current and past
environmental influences) "actention modules", & AE refer to the didactic
division of the "Evolutionary Pressure Totality" into relevant dialectic
lifetime juxtapositions of:
1. "Opportunity"
and
2. "Adversity" - here not the least "SHITS" [Synaptic Hibernation Imploring
{naturally selective AND 'motivating' of selective unconsciousness)
Traumatic {also tardily so) Situations] that are normally repercussively retained as
CURSES (alt. CCKHHURSES) type memory, better (though not well) known as 
"Pain" [as per Janov - www.primaltherapy.com]

Thereof the SEPTIC-humored possibility of mixing my explanatory 
platform of terms with Janov's jargon, and to recognize, that people 
not just are, but have accumulated (with insidiously influential consequences), 
"Pain" in their respective "Actention Selecting Systems". %-|
