Why so?
not having pain... is it related to keeping blood suply normal to maintain temp.? Because i think painy things get more blood supply[ i don't know how]...or is it just a neutral consequence...

Nah, blood supply? I think neuron stimuli would be a better term for 'pain'...

@dr.stein
Yes

@2810712
It is related to evolution. It is more important to know where the pain is coming on your body, since then you will know where to look/fight/run away from
As oposed to the inside of your body, where pain simply signals that something is wrong...

I don't understand what you meant by blood supply
