My brain hurts.
I just read through Brain Pickings, delivered on Sunday, and every week it hurts my head. In this world of overstimulation, I think it’s just too much data all in one place.
But, I am addicted to it.
Try it, go ahead. It might make you think. Hard.
And, question like: “Why does the world exist?”
Or, the difference between thinking and feeling.
And, what’s wrong with education?
Today, the latest mind-bender is:
Why do I LOVE that song?
Or, rather, Why is music addictive?
Here’s the video for full explanation:
The skinny? Music stimulates arousal, which then causes a release of dopamine in the body. So, basically, music chemically alters our bodies and makes us feel great. And, it’s addictive too.
So, there you have it.
Now, I know why that song on the radio haunts me. And, why the girls go crazy over One Direction. They can’t help it, it’s an addiction.
Now, I can’t get that song out of my pounding head.
