I guess it's not so good to compare beings, as there are just temporary effects of causes. But regarding those effects listed, one could even by observing "just" a present live see those appearences.
Much addicted, people face effects like that as the satisfaction does not arises in anyway.
Better to be a wise in a "lower" situation, as a fool in a "higher" which are all temporary and not lasting. Therfore do merits and not wast them.
Just that! *smile*
BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Nate sante baram sokham _()_
