Thanks again. That is where my confusion stems from. There’s a natural state, agreed. What are the attributes of a natural state? Is it happiness, contentment? Here is where I guess the philosophies differ.

For example, I guess Buddhism states that the natural state or nirvana is nothingness. They don’t believe in Soul, God etc.

Hinduism has many factions, but Hindu Vedanta believes the natural state is samadhi, pureness of thought. They have a notion of a Soul.

Maybe in some other philosophical belief, natural state is a state of enlightenment where oneness with God is realized.

This dissent with each belief systems in how they construe the natural state is very confusing to me.

I hope I am not disturbing you by asking too many questions.
