    Would you agree that our every action, motion and thought is acted on, moved and thought about because by our nature we think/feel that the next outcome, position or thought would be more pleasurable or better than the previous action, motion and thought?

    The Law of Motivation explains that we would not move an inch unless there is something in it for us.

    No. I would not agree with your blanket statement. Your post implies you are talking about conscious decisions. If you are then you have ignored the vast body of decision making that is subconscious and often reflexive.

    Yourlink is a two dimensional view of motivation. That said it does not even agree with your statement, since it argues that the greatest motiviation can arise from helping others.

    I believe some study of Maslow's heirarchy of motivation would be helpful to you.

    That move was a bit precipitatewasn't it Biologista? Although the link is to an esoteric site, the points made by the op are scientifically arguable. I think you could at least have waited until the poster had lapsed into the pseudoscience you anticipated before moving the thread.

    You think? Based on previous posts the OP does not seem interested in scientific discussion of the topics he posts. This is at least the third such post he has made, linking to a kabbalah website and then engaging in no discussion. I already warned him that this was not okay. So I'm going to see if any useful discussion is generated and if not I'm going to put it in the trash.
