Boredom is a major problem in today’s world. It creates a sense of weariness with life itself. It seems to me that it is as much a result as it is a cause. We become bored because life itself does not seem to add up. It is a consequence of a sense of the futility of life. Even those who appear to have everything are subject to the far-reaching tentacles of boredom. Boredom results in an overwhelming sense of tiredness with life and self, as a result, it is very disillusioning in that it produces a feeling of being out of sync with the world around us for life as no meaning.
