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?

  1. Don't forget that there is SO much still to be discovered about the brain, the mind and all its components, so referring to happiness as purely a chemical reaction may not be anywhere near as accurate as we think it is.
