Again and again.

Why do people go back time after time to the same thing? What makes us want to watch the same movie again, even when we know the punchline to every joke? Why do we replay the same game again and again, despite knowing every trick in the book from previous run-throughs? What is it that is so comforting about routine and repetition?

  1. That’s an interesting thought. I can’t really offer an answer other than to say that I think it’s something to do with “forgetting” that we remember something. I.e. we might remember a song in our subconscious but if we haven’t listened to it in years then we might forget that we once knew it so well.

    Nice little post. 🙂
