Um, yes, give or take a little bit. But if that is towards mental well-being and
effective living, where's the problem? We're talking about the desirability
of this kind of technology here: if you could reach that end-state of
well-being in the manner suggested (which both removes the pain
of the procedure and the pain of the reason behind the procedure),
would it be worthwhile? I mean this ethically and, in a sense, medically.
   It seems to me that a clearer conception of this issue would be
better off founded on an understanding of the different types
of counselling theory, as well as scenarios of the kind of 
technologies I am imagining.
