USC researcher Irving Biederman shows there may be a link between
the moment of satori and opiate receptors in the human brain.

http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2006-06/uosc-fk062006.php

"The brain's craving for a fix motivates humans to maximize the rate
at which they absorb knowledge"

Applying to subjects far from scientific such as celebrity faces
and advertising jingles,  this theory should make you recongnize
some of the addictive behavior displayed by the public, and yourself.

On an unrelated note, how is everyone?  I rarely check in with the BBS,
has the S/N ratio continued falling?  Feel free to email me directly.

[Blunderov] Thank you for this post. The words leap off the page for, I imagine, any chess player.

The article may also go some way to explaining the rapt faces at the Soccer World Cup event perhaps.

A vivid image from this competition will remain with me forever; a 9 or 10 yr old Polish boy, his ordinarily (one can tell) beatific face crimson with grief, tears coursing. The reason? Poland was losing 2-1 to, I think, Ghana. The anticipated fix dashed from the expectant vein? Seems possible.

Not quite the same thing as hunting a new insight to it's lair to be sure. But I can't help but suspect that the matters are connected; the chemical affirmation of a predicted identity could be a common element.

Thanks again, Prof.
