Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
The more I research about research, I am amazed at what people are studying. Using an MRI scanner scientists have found that the reward system for food and money was activated when preferred judgements where activated in the participants. This is another way of saying that preferred desires activate the the same neural pathways. The scientists were also able to watch the other activated areas in the brain, that are connected to this neural process. So our wishes activate the same neural system as the urge for food or money. The stronger the wish the stronger the neural connection. And so desires activate the reward system. By avoiding unpleasant information, we avoid threatening conclusions. An example would be, if I avoid the wrong foods and exercise, I will not get some disease.
