Stop being jealous, so you have never had that feeling of atarxia I suspect.

@Jolanta I strive for atarxia.... the freedom from mental stress....... and yes I have had that feeling.....

Clams are filter feeders and don't do well suspended.

Ataraxia (ἀταραξία, literally, "unperturbedness", generally translated as "imperturbability", "equanimity", or "tranquillity" ) is a Greek philosophical term for a lucid state of robust equanimity that was characterized by ongoing freedom from distress and worry.

In my opinion this is a lot BS, like most Stoic prescriptions.

I don't know if it is BS. I have had feelings of total calm and certainty and also total happiness and all that without drugs too.
