The bit about how chemicals that are good for our body tasting good is a nice evidence!
Why do we like pleasure more than pain?
A Bit more context,
Is all out emotions and everything like a game of chess, where the end goal is to survive.. And is pleasure and pain or terms we use to define the right and the wrong moves towards this goal?
Any thoughts are welcome!

The models we create in dream are so detailed. Thinking about it, lets say I am dreaming of a tilted house, the way the brain simulates the various objects in it (at such a high speed) according to the laws of physics that I have learnt is amazing.
If I try to think of consciously doing the same simulation when I am awake, it takes so much more concentration and energy.
Is this the power of a relaxed and stressless mind? Would meditation allow us to reach that state of mind consciously?
Time to think!
