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, 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 for the next run of experience. But on the backend of my mind, my junkie sensors are simply well-prepped for the needle, whether it’s a physical or psychological conversion drawn from the bottle.

Conversion Types & Examples
  1. Physical Conversion – I’m having a few drinks and therefore I’m in contact with a substance.
  2. Psychological Conversion – 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 positivity.

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’.

Let’s look at another example:

Weddings aren’t always ‘technically 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 project future scenarios in great detail, 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. Therefore, our sensors are heavily primed for a particular feeling. 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, I believe that is where joy lives in its purest form. So long as she’s on board, of course!
