ataraxia \at-uh-RAK-see-uh\, noun:
A state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety; tranquility.

Some would say that complete ataraxia is to be desired. But one look at the man in the padded room was enough to dissuade me. His blank stare proved that emotions make a person human.

I like this one. It does sound desirous, for a few seconds, doesn't it? Then it just sounds like a lobotomy.
