It Never Stops

We are creatures of habit.  A habit is defined as “a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.”  Fair enough.

So, it would seem then, that habits are learned – perhaps through an ongoing a sequence of behaviors – behaviors ultimately tweaked and tailored as the acts of humanness are refined.  Works of art or depravity – to each their own.

I am not clear on an obvious point – if we can actually “unlearn” something, Setting a TBI aside, what is that all about – the learning process?  Maybe it all comes down to replacing an old habit with a new habit – is that learning and forgetting?  Not sure if that result is a step forward or a step back.  Or, maybe, the result is destined to not move anywhere – a zero sum game in the end.  That’s depressing…

I think I need a candy bar.  I have one right here.  Time to execute.
