By maintaining a constant angular relationship to a bright celestial light, such as the Moon, they can fly in a straight line. Celestial objects are so far away, that even after travelling great distances, the change in angle between the moth and the light source is negligible; further, the moon will always be in the upper part of the visual field or on the horizon. When a moth encounters a much closer artificial light and uses it for navigation, the angle changes noticeably after only a short distance, in addition to being often below the horizon. The moth instinctively attempts to correct by turning toward the light, causing airborne moths to come plummeting downwards, and resulting in a spiral flight path that gets closer and closer to the light source

I am struggling with my own addicitons, and trying to understand how my limbic system works. I think this behavior of insects holds a key that can unlock the barrior to the millions of afflected people like myself. Be mindful that addiction can reach upon every aspect of behavior. On my behalf ,this is an important observation. I know it doesnt matter to most, but why is there a bug zapper?

positive inferiority drive which is wrong, the illusion that u can b from profiting of else
u cant b but what u do that is why usually the concept of free giving is out of being sacrifice which is wrong too
which show that what is wrong is principally and exclusively the recognition of anything else then truth
truth is absolute superiority first and last then no inferiority allowed but also no possible sacrifice what gives is a right that must exist of its result effect and resolve itself freely for its best fact all to its own self will
so truth gives right by force
and truth possess wrong by powers
Oh sorry Nephelim this was not just to you but to several others posters who had information that was partially correct but not completely correct. I didnt mean to sound snarky. I know I do sometimes.

Thanks for the correction, but you don't need to talk so condescendingly. We're here to learn from each other not put each other down. Unless that is what your philosophy is..
To the OP, you should tell us what your addictions are.. if you want help understanding them it would help to know what your addicted too.
