I watched a movie once, where several men were left drifting aimlessly on the ocean, in a small lifeboat, after a terrible shipwreck. The sun was hot and their rations were low--soon they ran out of fresh water.

One night while the others were sleeping, one man drank from the ocean. Ocean water contains 7 times more salt than the human body can safely ingest. He soon died.

The saddest part is that the more salt water a person drinks, the thirstier they become.

Preoccupation with self is like that--it is to drift aimlessly with an unquenchable thirst, ending in eternal death.
