Perhaps the goal we all actually really want is to endure. To endure through difficulty, endure through pain, and for our lives and our legacy in our artwork to endure.
Even with physical goods, it seems that perhaps endurance and durability is of the highest class. If your car will endure, your home wonder, your lifestyle will endure, your camera will endure, your laptop will endure, and whether your phone will endure. Thus investing in more durable things is good.
