The salt pillar metaphor in the Bible is a symbol of laziness and procrastination. Remembering the pleasure of their vices, a person sinks into fear and sadness that this will not happen again. Fear sublimates into procrastination and depressive despondency.
Politeness is when you trust people. Faith is love. Love people politely. Not to love people, not to believe them, is to feel fear. Fear is sublimated into anger, doubt, and aggression. This is all very impolite.
The pain is inside the person. Internal pain generates immunity to pain. If the pain is repressed, then the immune system is lost and paranoia is generated.

An obsessive person is an unhappy addict who wants to sublimate his drug withdrawal by attracting the attention of his drug. There are many strategies for dealing with addicts, but it's easier to ignore them good-naturedly. It is undesirable to reduce the withdrawal of an addict with small doses of a drug or other drugs. The more intense the pain, the faster it burns out, and consolations can stretch the pain indefinitely.
The spirit wants to live forever. Pride is the primary desire for life. The first sublimation of pride is lust, for it allows one to live through children.
