We're Wired Weird

Yesterday's post reminded me of something else I thought of a long time ago. I call it "emotional inertia." Newton's first law states that some force must affect an object in order to change its motion, whether it's moving or at rest. I believe that we have an innate desire to remain in whatever mood we are currently in. I know that when I'm happy, I want to remain happy. When I'm mad at someone, I want to stay mad. And so on.

How this could actually benefit anyone, I have no idea. But it's fun to think about.
