Melancholy can be characterized as a scenario that is multiple, with many possibilities, that not allow a definitive mind-set. A state without a surly idea, a well defined goal, that permit a kind of certainty to the person.
Even if our certainty is a pseudo-reality, this is our biggest wish, the condition that we deeply want. It seems that life become easier in a well defined state of mind, maybe we feel that because of the lack of contradictory thoughts, that make our actions more precise and powerful. When we become more efficient, more strong, we become more satisfied.
Related to the melancholy we can expose the mainly characteristic of our mind, that develop the phenomena by itself. In this case, when we start to have a multiple point of view about things, we start to lose our strength and this scenario becomes even more terrifying with the consequences, that are always unreal and exaggerated, developed by our unconscious thoughts. This characteristic make us try to establish a well set state of the mind, always when we start to feel a decay in our thoughts, in our power. This is our manly aspect, our manly primitive aspect, and don’t allow us to have a multiple point of view, a view of the whole; we only change this characteristic of our constitution after we start to become more rationalist.
