E is for Endorphins
E is for Endorphins.
I find the idea of happiness simply being a chemical in our minds really interesting. To me emotions and consciousness has always been the little hope I hold onto about there being some kind of universal truth to the Universe.
To then have emotions explained as a chemical reaction is very intriguing, can chemicals explain consciousness, it seems like such a unique thing to me.
It also makes me wonder if the only moral code should be a Hedonistic one, as surely the release of these chemicals would be all that is important?
