Joy of experience is stronger than joy of purchase.

“people’s satisfaction with the things they bought went down, whereas their satisfaction with experiences they spent money on went up.”

“Our experiences are a bigger part of ourselves than our material goods,” says Gilovich.

“something that might have been stressful or scary in the past can become a funny story to tell at a party or be looked back on as an invaluable character-building experience”

“shared experiences connect us more to other people than shared consumption.”

About Logan

Hi, I'm currently working on Speakable Programming for Every Language (SPEL), to allow humanity to collagorate together in creating a General-Intelligence Operating-System (GI-OS), which can eventually aid in giving robots support for human reincarnation, thus allowing us to colonize the other planets in our solar system and the cosmos. Meanwhile I am authoring sci-fi stories to help share my vision of the future, and teaching meditation and quantum animism to provide a belief system and set of practices compatible with the oncoming future. Stories regarding my blog content have been covered in the Daily Mail, Business Insider and Technocracy News. Thank you all for helping spreading the word.
