The Science Between Pleasure & Joy

Once I become aware of a desirable experience about to take place in my REAL-ality, regardless of how subtle or noticeable the sensations make me feel, then it tells me I’m already generating pleasure from a build-up of thoughts that have ‘set the stage’ for a certain act to ‘replay’.

My comparison to ‘what is ahead’ comes from my remembrance in previous encounters or in the ‘what was’ or ‘had played out’ somewhere along the line. So this obviously leaves a meaningful impression behind. In turn, my junkie sensors are well-prepped for the needle, whether it’s a physical or psychological conversion drawn from the bottle.

Conversion Types:

  1. Physical – I’m having a few drinks and therefore I’m in contact with a substance.
  2. Psychological – I’m on a romantic date and thus my imagination runs wild.
  3. Both – I’m on date eating and drinking and as an end result, I’m consumed in life.

You see, it’s only a matter of time before I refill that expectation with another repeat of the past even though I feel I’m entering a new experience, i.e., my illusion that I’ve called ‘joy’.

Note: Weddings aren’t always joyous as most won’t like to hear. Rather, they can easily become highly pleasurable events based on yesterday’s knowledge and prepping. Humans have a tendency to thoroughly project future scenarios, especially the glamorous scenario, so we often create the potential in our mind over and over many times prior to the event. Thus, we reduce the value on the day because we expect everything to match if not surpass our expectations. Although, the unexpected can happen anywhere, anytime. Including, at weddings.

However, for the girl totally caught off guard in the proposition of marriage or anything unforeseen, that is where it lives. So long as she’s on board.
