      I get what you're saying @Thin White Duke, but what happens when that pleasure inevitably turns into boredom - what then? How is that transcended if/when we inevitably run those pleasurable experiences into the ground? I think this speaks to the "rich guy with lots of money who performs heists for fun" archetype seen most often in cinema: Those things traditionally regarded as pleasureful have been expended and proven finite, and while we may call what comes after it (the heists, the criminality) a new realm of pleasure, is that really what it is, or is it the best possible compromise? On the other hand, is the inherent risk of such behaviour the novelty which sustains interest in life? In short, pleasure as we normally regard it can become monotonous, so is what comes after still pleasure, or is it another (possibly harmful) experience that breaks the monotony? Look back to cinema, and more broadly, theater: We do not always go to be entertained with happy emotions, but to experience the full range of emotions which have the power to move us (e.g. tragedies). On a grander scale, do we need these other less joyous experiences to interject our otherwise pleasureful lives in order to experience our being to its fullest extent, rather than as a unary stagnation? I guess it's as much a phenomenological problem as it is a semantic one.
