Why do humans dread boredom ...

Zoologist who observed gorillas found that they spend hours and hours doing nothing. What they dread is a change to that monotony. On the contrary, humans who are the descendents of Gorillas are fearful of the monotony. Monotony makes them disinterested, disengaged and sometimes depressed. Humans wanted something or anything to happen at all costs. Why do humans dread boredom? Is inaction is not divine? Is it not the recommended path to attain Nirvana?

In modern world humans need hundreds of television channels, hundreds of AM, FM, Satellite radio stations, numerous sports competitions, mesmerizing movies and thousand others. But still all these variations do not satisfy the craving humans. The TV channels get flipped for every 2 minutes, the radio's scan picks up a new station for every 3 minutes. In some way it adds fuel to the world economy as humans spend to relieve themselves from monotony at all costs. Is it good? What are your thoughts? What is your way of relieving from boredom? How much do you spend for anti-boredom activities?
