Nice try, but your logic has a HUGE hole in it.

"Desires do not sustain or enterprise anything of really practical value, they are simply longings for something that is unnecissary
and therefor are divided from need. Since desires have no practical value they are, frankly, a waste of time, power or whatever else required to fullfil that desire."

If one defines a "desire" as something less than a "need" (and I'll agree with this definition) it does *not* follow that desires a) have no practical value or are b) a waste of time, power or whatever else is required to fulfill that desire.

By this logic, all earthly desires have no value and are a waste of time. It should take only a moment of your time to ruminate on this idea, then abandon it due to it's absurdity.
