    I wish to share my philosophy, which is based upon my personal experience/struggles. Many people might disagree with it, but I wish to share it anyway. It's the pdf file below. In this file, I discuss my personal struggles later on, and what conclusion they've led me to. Anyway, here's the file:

    As long as you accept that my bliss is different, then we are fine.

    While I agree that we humans are emotionally driven, I don't think "bliss" is the only thing we desire. We like our emotions. We go see scary movies to purposely experience fear for example.
    Also, how do you propose to achieve this state of bliss? You chase what makes you happy? However, I think often people don't know what makes them happy. Maybe they think they know. We are constantly bombarded with ads telling us what we need to be happy. Lots of self help guides claiming to know how we can become happy.

    Finally, to me bliss is simply a biochemical state of the brain. We are trying to figure out how to trigger this emotional states. Religion, art, music, love, romance. Processes designed to trigger the release of chemicals into the brain that we desire.
    Where I see the benefits of Buddhism is the ability to be less the victim of these emotional states and more the master. The ideal being to be able to trigger these desired states independent of the external world. To will ourselves to be happy.

    Thanks for your response. But, I'm curious if you've actually read that file I presented in my opening post. Are you able to open it? I was able to. Now, in regards to your post, people do seek unpleasant emotions, such as fear. But, that philosophy file explains why unpleasant emotions (unpleasant matter states) are always bad, and why bliss is always good. That may sound like nonsense to you. But, if people judge my philosophy as nonsense at first glance, that's like judging a book by its cover. So, that's why I'm asking people to read my philosophy in the hopes that, as they continue reading it, they'll reach a point where they'll consider the possibility it's not nonsense.

    I read it but if it is all in our mind, the good, the bad then does it matter whether we seek the good states or the bad. If all we experience is bliss then doesn't bliss become ordinary? The idea that we need lows to enjoy the highs.

    The rush of emotions is all experiential to me. For example I tend to prefer nightmares over happy dreams. I want to feel things besides happiness/bliss. The ups and downs are part of what makes life interesting to me.

    When you have this attitude of wanting unpleasant emotions, you're acting as though they're good. But, they're bad, and it makes no sense to treat the bad as good, since bad is bad, and good is good. Also, seeking good or bad emotions is nothing good or bad by itself, and it becomes good or bad in the eyes of different people. In your eyes, seeking bad emotions is good. But, again, those bad emotions themselves are bad.

    One doesn't need to enjoy the highs because, as long as he's having bliss, he's enjoying other things. Also, if heaven exists, we have all forms of the best, everlasting bliss, including the enjoyment of bliss.

    As a human one day I feel happy. The next day I might feel depressed.

    Humans just human feel whatever they do personally as a human. Just because I am a human living.

    Affected by atmospheric change.

    Affected by emotional shared relationships.

    Human.

    What does a scientist also just a human think?

    Is your physical machine owner as form the water gas spirit heavens status that changes to affect us?

    No.

    Do you want to put a human bio genesis chemical emotional bio status chemistry into a new machine reaction to claim bio chemistry owns some form of chemistry as electrical pulses.

    Yes says human theist vision memories.

    As a reason to continue to research. To interview and theory a human owned chemical biology versus bible Jesus passion thesis?

    The type of spirit exultation a human says was a Jesus stigmata! When it is a human body change effect.

    Human first

    Attacked human secondary.
