Well this an interesting turn. So I suppose Adam has more life because he
has found the ONE, I have passion for life because I get to keep looking,
Dr Ernie has passion for life because of his spiritual beliefs, Rohit has
passion for life because the world exists to mock him.

I guess the question at this point is what it takes to *sustain* passion.
Adam believes it's finding ONE true love. I believe it's suplimenting your
life with the energy of others.... etc. And of course Rohit still believes
the world exists to mock him.
