Trends of Mind


When it comes to balancing a bank account, a billion dollars = a million dollars thousand times.

When it comes to bringing happiness, a billion dollars = a million dollars and three zeros.

All along the life, we let the sense of linearity fool us. It is deeply ingrained in our perception and we are not even aware of it most of the times.

A two inch deep cut does not hurt twice as one inch deep cut. Two insults do not bring twice as much grief as one insult. Two rewards do not bring twice as much pride. Third reward brings almost none.

The world may or may not run in line. We will never know, because we never live long enough to figure out the true trend. But our emotions don’t run on a line. They run in circles, cycles. They shoot up, then they max out and mostly they recede like a parting tide.
