Wonderful philosophy @fermentedphil. Beautiful correlation between the two. If you look at things, the West is impatient, like a young child. So waiting on something to ferment is not instantly satisfying. Yet if you do wait and allow the process to take its course it turns into something more satisfying than originally intended.
I like your correlation about the 'loss of souls' and suicide. I think that it lends to that feeling of hopelessness and the fact something does not instantly change impacts it even more. When you are young you don't understand there is a tomorrow and that each day it does get better. They don't want to wait. They don't see what good it will do.
