You said it yourself and already answered the question I think...it's the human condition.
I don't see why anyone wouldn't gravitate towards comfort. I know people find great payoffs at the other side of discomfort sometimes but for others it's not worth it. It's not a matter of "not dealing with reality"...it's a matter of creating a comfortable one.
Keeping it simple and living in comfort isn't such a bad goal in my opinion.
