But thinking makes it so - Bloom on TED

I was about to propose today's TED Talks as a listening tip, when I just could not stop watching and found us a real gem: The origins of pleasure - Paul Bloom
(feed)Bloom's talk kicks off by showing how pleasure works for us. By extension, but noted in passing rather, for pain goes the same. It is not enough to say: It is all in the mind, because it is very real. So watch and as a bonus, Bloom is also very entertaining. Want more Bloom? Check Yale - see below.
