The pleasure principle. A secret for the initiated

In our time, our daily bread gets to us quite easily. And not just bread, but bread and butter. There is no longer any need to work up to the seventh sweat: all the hard physical work is done by machines. Now we have delicious food in the supermarket, accommodation with all the amenities and money to pay for it all. And we, finally, can begin to enjoy life: relax and have fun, without denying ourselves anything …

Psychologists have long told us that a person lives by the principle of pleasure. Does what is pleasant and tries to avoid what is unpleasant. It is nice to rest, lie in the sun. Work is not very good. But I really want to eat, so I have to get up to get food.

Hunger has always been the main reason for human activity and the main reason for progress. Mastering the world around him more and more, a person practically got rid of not only hunger, but also from hard physical labor. In our time, our daily bread gets to us quite easily. And not just bread, but bread and butter. There is no longer any need to work until the seventh sweat: all the hard physical work is done by machines. Now we have delicious food in the supermarket, accommodation with all the amenities and money to pay for it all.

And we, finally, can begin to enjoy life: to relax and have fun, without denying ourselves anything. And let only those who cannot buy the right to rest work. Is it so? Let's figure it out using the system-vector psychology of Yuri Burlan.

Dance while you are young

Indeed, we have a strong association in our heads that rest is good and work is bad. When asked about a dream, young people today simply answer: “If we had money, we’ll buy the rest!” Question: "And if you already had a million dollars, what would you do?" The most common answer: "I would have had a rest!"

So we are resting. Foam party, pajama party, wine, beer, girls, boys … Everything is basically the same, the only difference is in the price of drinks and establishments. And in the morning, a headache, emptiness and a vague feeling of dissatisfaction. Some entertainments are replaced by others, new, more sophisticated, followed by others, even steeper. Variety and increase in degree is required. Otherwise - hopeless boredom and mortal melancholy.

Why do we feel bad when everything seems to be fine?

So the pleasure principle doesn't work? Working. But in a different way. First, let's figure out what relaxation is and what pleasure is.

Rest is recuperation after WORK. Any muscle in the human body functions according to the principle of tension-relaxation. If the muscle is not strained for a long time, it will atrophy. Lying on the couch after a hard day is a pleasure. But lying on the couch for days is a bad sign. Walking around the shops, gazing at the windows is a good way to relax for many women. But wandering around the shops for days on end is already a diagnosis.

The eternally resting-traveling-relaxing becomes as unbearably bored and dull as the eternally living Immortal, who, in order to feel the taste of life, is ready to give up this immortality.

Pleasure: I always want more than I can hold

When you are thirsty, a glass of water can give you incredible pleasure. And another one? And the third one? Or maybe another glass? NO THANKS, I WANT NO MORE.

When you come home hungry, it seems like you can eat an elephant! Delicious food is a great pleasure (although experience shows that after a few days of hunger, any food will be delicious). You eat one piece, the second, the third … After some time, satiety occurs, the appetite disappears, and with it the pleasure of eating. How, but this lovely piece of magic chocolate cake? NO THANKS, NO MORE FIT.

When there is not a great feeling of hunger, we get pleasure from food through a feeling of the variety of tastes and the beauty of the design of dishes. But restaurant food sooner or later becomes commonplace. The iron rule "tasty when hungry" also works here.

We get pleasure from satisfying a need only as long as the need is not satisfied. As soon as the need is satisfied, the body signals us the termination of pleasure to the point of disgust.

System-vector psychology of Yuri Burlan explains this by the fact that the volume of our body is limited and all the pleasures aimed at consumption IN YOURSELF are always finite. Contrary to popular belief, increased consumption does not make a person happier. The idle moneybags oversaturated with their wealth are no happier than ordinary people.

Fools like work?

On the other hand, we meet people who work day and night, getting real pleasure from their work. A surgeon who spends most of his life in the hospital, saving people and performing the most difficult operations, nevertheless, feels necessary and happy. A programmer who cannot leave the computer until he comes up with the very necessary code is completely absorbed in his new idea and does not want to hear about rest. The car enthusiast spends all his evenings and vacations in his garage, as he collects one of two old cars, but a fundamentally new one.

And there are many, many other people who are so passionate about their work that they are ready to give it all their time, forgetting not only about entertainment, but also about rest. Why is this happening?

We are not stokers, not carpenters, or Happiness in work

The explanation is given by the system-vector psychology of Yuri Burlan. She argues that humanity is a species, and each person is a representative of the species, having his own specific role. His natural task is not to receive pleasure exclusively for himself, but to fulfill his individual task in the common cause of human development.

System-vector psychology of Yuri Burlan says that every person is born with certain sets of mental properties set by nature - vectors, of which there are eight in total. In one person, several vectors can be combined, which not only determine his desires to fulfill a specific role, but also ensure the possibility of their fulfillment.

If a person does what nature intended him for, then the biochemistry of his brain is leveled, he receives a "reward" in the form of pleasure and a feeling of happiness. If not, then he does not feel satisfaction from life, from his work, and suffers.

Rest and entertainment, in principle, cannot give a feeling of happiness for a person, since they are aimed at obtaining individual satisfaction "inward". Whereas work for the good of society, that is, “outward,” in accordance with its purpose naturally fills a person with joy.

The internal consumption is limited, the return is infinite

When a person fulfills his program, realizes himself in society, lives "on bestowal", then he does not get tired, but, on the contrary, a new, additional source of energy opens up in him. He manages to do much more, he is not tormented by illness and misfortune, and, most importantly, he feels happy. Such people live a long time and remain active until old age.

When a person does not feel in demand, cannot realize himself, find a job to his liking, then the feeling of joy in life gradually disappears, fatigue from life accumulates, and neither rest nor entertainment helps. And a person gradually, through illnesses, leaves life. We see this in the case of pensioners. Retired, it seems, take a rest, relax, enjoy life. But no, a person without work begins to get bored, suffer and hurt.

How it works?

What is this mysterious purpose and how to find it? How does the pleasure principle actually work? System-vector psychology of Yuri Burlan gives an exhaustive answer for everyone. For clarity, here are some examples.

A person with a muscular vector, properly raised in childhood, will enjoy the hard work of a bricklayer on a construction site, and on weekends will also go to the village and dig a vegetable garden. At the same time, he will feel happy and fulfilled.

The owner of the visual vector is unlikely to learn to get joy from agricultural labor, unless it is flower cultivation. His credo: beauty and love will save the world. With proper development and education, such a person can become an outstanding artist, artist, psychologist, fashion designer, designer.

The sound vector requires inner concentration from its owner, and its owner does not really notice what is happening around, but with the right development it becomes a great physicist, musician, programmer, writer. When concentrating, the biochemistry of the brain is leveled for a sound engineer, he gets indescribable pleasure from his work, and people get a new idea, a great melody or a new generation of computers.

Each vector has its own set of properties-desires, their correct implementation fills us with pleasure, which does not stop, but only increases the more the more we do for other people.

A person can never be happy if he does not his own business, all the more if he does not do any business at all.

We live in a society where the imposed indicator of success is the amount and cost of entertainment, which in our time becomes boring faster and faster. To realize our natural properties, to understand our purpose and start living in accordance with it - this is where the secret of true pleasure from life lies, it gives us the real taste of every moment.
