#Desire #Compulsion: 2018-08-03

•1 Desire is an egg-shaped state of energy imbalance with a void at one end and compression at the other end along with a mental target.
•2 Any instant relief of the imbalance of a desire is experienced as pleasure with the intensity of the pleasure equaling the pressure of the imbalance.
•3 The more targets one desire has, the more intense that desire becomes until there are enough targets that the desire turns into a compulsion.
•4 Long-term goals produce a leaning towards one side of the energy balance with aligned or grouped goals creating a stronger leaning or tendency.

•5 The relief of long-term goals produces gratification, joy, satisfaction, and vindication in proportion to the work performed and obstacles overcome to achieve the goals.
