What you wrote is true but thats the delusion called life that we limit ourselves to a narrow scope of world made terms and conditions, we all fall for it and then some of us eventually are able to see through this game called life.
At the same time its the lessons we learn in life to reach an understanding that there is much more beyond our mind.
I feel almost everyone has some form of attachment.
For eg some are attached to money and would do anything to get it even Adharmic ways.
Then there are others who are attached to their intellect and would do anything to gain intellectualization of everything and anything though those who chase intellect are less likely to be Adharmic but they could feed their own ego and think that's all there is and not go beyond their intellect.
Both types are only following the ways of the world because we all "inherit" the ways of the world thinking its always right and not willing to submit to the words of the Divine.
There is a verse in the Quran 2:170 which talks of this state of just following what has been handed down to us:
"When it is said to them, “Follow what God has revealed,” they reply, “No! We ˹only˺ follow what we found our forefathers practicing.” ˹Would they still do so,˺ even if their forefathers had ˹absolutely˺ no understanding or guidance?"
Here the deeper meaning of what our forefathers practice is the ways of the world that we have been following.
In the sense to be chasing worldly pursue be it money or intellectualization.
Coming back to topic,partly we are too blame here because we speed up ourselves into thinking speed in the right way in life.
Kids are taught to be the fastest to answer, fastest to think. fastest to deduce a maths problem.
Here is where we are wrongly training the mind to be in reactive mode leading to amaygdala-hyper-reactivity which causes stress and may lead to depression/anxiety as we age.
In contrast,spiritual activity leads to slowing down of the time in between thoughts and calms the mind and more blood is shunted to the pre frontal cortex and this makes one able to grasp any information without the need to get hyper-reactive as the space-time between thoughts eventually gives us the time-dilation effect for efficiency in carrying out any activity be it mental or physical.
In time-dilation effect one may actually have only 10 minutes to carry out a task but to the spiritual person he gets a perception that he has 1 hour and he is able to finish in 10 minutes what another person would take 1 hour.
So the benefits of being less hyper-reactive and experiencing time-dilation is far efficient than someone who is in constant stress to speed up everything and cause imbalance in their mind and body.
But its very hard to implement such understandings to the education system these days as everything is too competitive and results oriented.
The human mind is only thought to react and win but systematically destroying the human system.
Desire is the culprit here.
Because desire based thinking feels success or victory is only because another has to fail or lose.
We humans still have not come to fully understand that success or failure is just a small aspect of our thinking and there is so much more beyond polar opposites.
