Why reward is relevant


When people work hard at doing something, they want some type of reward or satisfaction. Often this comes automatically. My reward for cleaning laundry is that I have clean clothes to wear. My reward for showering is that I don’t stink as much. My reward for picking my nose is that I get the boogers out.

For everything that I do, there must be some type of reward. I do not always know what the reward is but for every action I do there is a reason, motive, goal, purpose, result, or reward. I do not always know which actions I must take to achieve a goal that I have.

Most of the time, the actions that I do are meant to avoid some type of pain. I eat to avoid hunger, drink to avoid thirst, and put on my coat to avoid freezing. These are reasons for doing things but they bring me no permanent happiness.

I want to do things that have a lasting reward. I get a reward out of making geometric shapes or from writing books. The reward is something that to me seems natural, physical, material, or relevant. Something I can see, hear or touch.

I am still working on understanding the things that I do and what other people do. Without understanding, there is no relevance. I think that the reward that I am aiming for is to be relevant to myself and others. I call it the reward of relevance.

I have unusual thoughts on almost every subject. I am as Pro-Life as I can possibly be. I am strongly opposed to violence of any type. That includes rape, war, and (obviously) abortion. Everything I think, speak, and write must be filtered by the effect it could have on the lives of others. If I am in any way promoting violence accidentally, please let me know.
