Against “Wellness”

“Wellness is a state quite beyond health; a state of being completely free from aches, pains, irritations, stress, anxiety, inflammation, fear, distress, or disquiet. Wellness is not only a condition of bodily perfection, but spiritual perfection, as well, high energy, perfect mental acuity, peace, sexual fulfillment, empowerment, control, contentment.

Wellness is a divine state.   Wellness is a state of being which can realistically only be achieved beyond death, which is to say that the search for wellness in this life is the search for a deathlike state. Wellness is death.”

The latest episode of Proverbial is dedicated to Davila’s claim, “Dying societies accumulate laws like dying men accumulate remedies.”
