Wikipedia:

Blaise Pascal (19 June 1623 – 19 August 1662) was a French mathematician, physicist, inventor, philosopher, writer, and Catholic theologian.

Pascal is arguably best known as a philosopher, considered by some the second greatest French mind behind René Descartes. He was a dualist following Descartes. However, he is also remembered for his opposition to both the rationalism of the likes of Descartes and simultaneous opposition to the main countervailing epistemology, empiricism, preferring fideism.

He cared above all about the philosophy of religion. Pascalian theology has grown out of his perspective that humans are, according to Wood, “born into a duplicitous world that shapes us into duplicitous subjects and so we find it easy to reject God continually and deceive ourselves about our own sinfulness”.

why did pascal think that All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone? Do we distract ourselves because we are bored or because we are afraid of what comes after the distractions stop? 
what is the benefit of boredom? in what way boredom can help us learn something new about ourselves. 
There are some fears the mind can only repress and immerse itself in distractions, how deep is our need to be distracted, and what is the origin of this need to not be in the moment.
