Sat Sri Akaal,

"Bukh" Physical Hunger or A mental state of being.

Mind Perspective beyond Hunger

While a researcher was doing research on mouse

One mouse was kept fulfilled for a week,

And other mouse was kept hungry without food for a week.

Results Fulfilled was lazy, and was not crazy for food.

Hungry mouse was active, but when served with food, state of mind changed, mouse was not eating but storing for future starvation.

And when died there was store of food left.

This relates to "BUKH" or Hoarding tendency of being.

hoarding noun (KEEPING)

[ U ]
the act of collecting large amounts of something and keeping it for yourself, often in a secret place:
The food shortages have been exacerbated by hoarding.

[ U ]
a mental condition that makes someone want to keep a large number of things that are not needed or have no value:
Compulsive hoarding can leave no space for someone to clean, cook, socialize, or even sleep in a bed.
Hoarding is often linked with depression and anxiety.

This happens in Capitalist Society, a Mental State of Being.

Where a Human hoarding of virtual wealth beyond utility, compromising on REAL wealth blessed by Nature.

Do we have "BUKH" a mental state of hoarding.

Pause and contemplate.
