my friend shared with me about some crazy scientists and their experiment. they started with rats and put them in a standard boring rat cage along with a choice between water and a water/heroine mix. the rat got use to the heroine and made regular trips to his “hit”. the rats would seldom if not at all visit the water spigot.
then the rats had their world rocked; they were moved to “rat park”. rat park had everything a rat could desire; cheese, betting, companionship, rat wheels and anything else that would allow a rat to experience happiness. the rats were given the same choice of liquid refreshments between the water and the water/heroine mix. the rats no longer went for the heroin bottle. the rat park and water satisfied the rat’s desire.
q: what would you put in your “rat park” to keep you happy and satisfied and not wanting more? what holds you back from filling your rat park with those items and ideas?
