“You are dropped off on an island. You are given supplies and told that there is fresh water there. You begin to investigate. How big is the island, is it inhabitated, where will it be safe to camp and more importantly where is the fresh water. You come upon a large pond of muddy water. You realize that you can could easily set up camp next to the muddy pond and boil the water every day. You would completely survive. Some people would just do that. They would live with dirty water every day and just try and get through it by boiling the water. Then there are others who would pass by the muddy water and go onward to find the fresh water where they could be happy and content without having to deal with dirt. “
