Question: What gives one the greatest feelings of joy: past, present, or future pleasures?
Answer: The fact is that past pleasures, whatever they may be, are always confined because they are in the past. These feelings are gathered together, reflected upon, and have specific feelings associated with them.
Present feelings can be very joyful, but since a person is caught in them at the moment, he cannot yet correctly assess them because they are weighing on him, controlling him.
While the future joys can be experienced virtually endlessly. It would be wonderful for a person to pull himself toward future joyful states.
Question: So, the most acute sensations of joy come from the future state of pleasure or satisfaction?
Answer: Yes. Because it is in the future and it is not limited by anything.
