Siddhartha realizes that Samsara or worldly desires only brings him suffering. While he enjoys a feast for the senses previously unknown to him, he loses sight of himself, his inner voice drowned out by the din of stimulation which Siddhartha experiences. It is interesting that Siddhartha experiences primarily the negative results of this existence, "the soul sickness of greed."
