“To one as young as you, I’m sure it seems incredible, but to Nicolas and Perenelle, it really is like going to bed after a very, very long day. After all, to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure. You know, the Stone was really not such a wonderful thing. As much money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings would choose above all — the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them.”
(Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone)
It’s not clear to me whether the two highlighted parts are the same or not. Does the latter refer to the former or other things, for example, about detailed ways of seeking money and life?
