Yup. This thinking stuff is only useful because survival is such a
struggle. Human life is generally a battle for the necessities of
life, with occasional good times.

Once happiness can be obtained as a normal state, with systems set up
to enable the continuation of ecstatic bliss with no effort on our
part, then the vast majority of humanity will opt out of the thought
game. Couch potatoes to the max.
