I guess it's not so good to compare beings, as there are just temporary effects of causes. But regarding those effects listed, one could even by observing "just" a present live see those appearences.

Much addicted, people face effects like that as the satisfaction does not arises in anyway.

Better to be a wise in a "lower" situation, as a fool in a "higher" which are all temporary and not lasting. Therfore do merits and not wast them.
Just that! *smile*

"Life is a struggle. Life will throw curveballs at you, it will humble you, it will attempt to break you down. And just when you think things are starting to look up, life will smack you back down with ruthless indifference..."

Aversion is attachment.

As one grows older the desire for sex diminishes quite naturally. Who is driving the car?

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

I certainly don't have as much sexual desire as I did when I was 19 and I am not quite 40 yet!

I'd like to attribute this to my practice and all the attainments, but I suspect Mr Man might have a point about the age...
