According to Alex Lickerman and Ash ElDifrawi, we all have nine basic states we pass through: Hell, Hunger, Animality, Anger, Tranquility, Rapture, Learning, Realization, and Compassion.

Founded neither in mysticism nor the supernatural, the world of Enlightenment is introduced here, a core truth that will at last enable us to achieve the kind of enduring happiness we all want.
