pleasure is caused by cells reproducing via food or rest (even blinking) or procreation or increasing bloodflow (such as walking Or caffeine or a warm
bath or alcohol or drugs or ibuprophen) or breathing or evacuation of bodily waste Or 98.6 degree body temperature or the removal or pain or anything
known to cause pleasure.
pain is the dying of cells or Death or hunger or fatigue or sexual arousal or adrenaline rush or crying or restriction of body (or mind) or full
bowel/bladder or a rise/lowering of body temperature or illness Or regurgitating or sneezing or Removal of pleasure or anything known to cause
So to summarize these first two paragraphs, "Pleasure is caused by anything known to cause pleasure and pain is caused by anything known to cause
pain." Hmmmm...mind blowing.
Also, sneezing is quite pleasurable for me
males and females have different humor tastes.
Everyone has a different sense of humor, it's not a male/female thing.
All jokes say pain is pleasure and pleasure is pain...
Ok...not really following. What about the classic "Why did the chicken cross the road?" Not much pain or pleasure going on there...
pain impairs judgement. Anger is when a source of pain is experiencing pleasure.
For me, pain has the tendency to sharpen my focus. Some have a low threshold for pain, maybe those are who you are referring to?
Crying is a response to pain
Tears of joy?
The goal of all activity is to cure pains with Pleasure.People "love" pleasure and "hate" pain. Pleasure is good and pain is bad. Pleasure
is healthy and pain is unhealthy.
Lots of generalizations in this writing, not everyone fits this standard you seem to have. In fact I'm willing to bet that your standards of pain and
pleasure apply to maybe
half of all people.
People do what they think will cause pleasure and avoid that which they think causes pain. People love other people because of mutual pleasures
and pains they share and teaming up is seen as increasing chances of pleasure/survival (even blind ants surround the queen and hold hands to protect
This is basic survival. Life is much more primal that you may be lead to believe. Instincts will always exist.
Repetition or Transcription or rhyming makes things easier to remember.
Finally something I can agree with.
Comparisons, metaphors, parables, etcetera etcetera are mental tricks.
Tricks, or shortcuts?
Unconcious hypnosis trance does not exist and all hypnosis does is make a person crave pleasures more. Hypnotists tell a person to imagine
pleasure and describe the pleasure using all 5 senses using the imagination which relaxes a person. Intoxication makes a person easier to
I'm highly skeptical of hypnosis, so I have to agree with the statement "Does not exist" until I'm proven wrong...the rest...not too sure.
Money isn't happiness, pleasure is happiness.
Money can buy pleasure, leading to happiness.
This will not help you trick people
Of course it won't, it's a bunch of poorly explained ideas.
this information will merely facilitate logic and reasoning.
I can't see how that would be possible...
Music is based on beat of highest treble note.
What? I've been a musician for over 20 years, and the only possible way I can see this applied would be in the case of an extremely simple
arrangement with a 4/4 or maybe a 3/4 signature. Some of the most powerful music doesn't follow 'standard' layouts, in fact the power comes from
the way seemingly misaligned tempos and accents ebb and flow. More extreme generalizations that have no real substance, in my opinion.
