    Default Would wanting exist without needing?

    I think this could go in this area.

    This question just popped into my mind and I wanted to chop it up with you all....

    I haven't formed any opinions, as my mind is always dissecting...

    Thoughts?

    Wanting would exist without needing because having gives lend to wanting.

    The Stones sung about this, right?

    I guess they can be related, but in many cases, they are two different things. Wanting can be pretty ugly sometimes.

    I don't know if they sang it. I am just now expanding my musical selection...Please pardon the ignorance.

    I think needing can get ugly too, like the Hurricane Katrina fiasco...

    I want my own private island in the carribean (hopefully like Dr No's island!), but I don't NEED one...

    I would say the ugliness of "needing" is more about.. umm.. survival? Maybe? Sometimes surviving requires desperate measures, but it can be justified in a certain light.

    While the ugliness of "wanting" isn't so much survival based as much as it's just self-gratification, and all in all, very unnecessary.

    Or so I think off the top of my head. Kind of in a rush right now, but that's what comes to mind.

    I accidentally read this post, but I actually agree. Needing implies desperation and fixation on consequence. If I don't get what I need, I get sad. If I don't get what I want...fuck it. If you curb your desperation, you can transition from needing to wanting.

    Yes, wanting would exist without needing.
    I want to respond to this thread.
    But I needn't.
    However, I did.
    Because I wanted to.


    I will prove this, by deleting my post in about 5 minutes.
