I think Humans have certain behavioral traits that other people can never fully understand, 
in fact they do not need to be understood by others. These behavior can enable a sense of enchantment. 
 At the same time they can often result in a loss of morality, pride and a magnification of personal shame.
Why people act the way they do in the world is not just for the pursuit of ecstasy.
It can also be because we all have egos that can accept and love damaged pride and 
sadness, in all the situations in which they exist.
I do not think deviant behavior are completely meaningless for other people, 
or that they just end up as something like self-complacency or onanistic experience.
Having eccentric behavioral traits is a feature that makes us human. 
Even if these behavior are unpleasant in nature, they can still be something that makes real connections between us in society.
