Each time the more has been achieved, there is a little glow of satisfaction,
perhaps a showing off to the neighbours to heighten the happiness,
(gaining one up on them, and another little glow), and then the novelty
dies away, the new possession becomes mundane, the senses are again at rest
– in equilibrium – mental tiredness sets in, routine becomes dull and boring.
