According to Insel, Gingrich and Cascio in their study of voles, there is an imprinting period after mating during which the monogamous voles´ brains release a compound called oxytocin, which activates the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine. During this period, which lasts several hours in voles, their enduring partnerships are formed. Dopamine in humans is known to induce ´pleasant sensations´ which the brain begins to crave. You become addicted to your mate. Which leads to some wonderful speculations as well as some decently grounded cautions.
How about a blissfully passionate joint meditation, after each climax, -- a happily ever aftering for imprinting -- like a mirror image of the preliminary rituals of Tantric lovemaking. And while we´re on the subject of optimizing the experience, research also shows that for most of us our peak sexual arousal comes after a few hours sleep in the evening.
To begin, an examination of life´s expenses will quickly show you that housing and its mortgages, taxes, repairs and maintenance, is the largest piece of your budget. What would happen to life´s reality if we made major changes to the equation there?
We´ve been experimenting with both the lifestyle changes and the numbers for several years and the confirmation grows. Not only from our own experience but from those fellow experimenters we share notes with. From those who make the transition in order to retire early by risk-free accessing of the equity in their current home, to the young who find the better home the way to realize dreams of family-centered living, to the teens who invest their education and exploring years and resources in order to prepare for even more ambitious liberation longterm.
