Drinking Coffee: How Our Senses Work

When we drink a cup of coffee, we detect it using the receptors of our bodies, and that information is then converted into activated neurons. Waves of light are converted into colors, with the mouth receptors trying to classify the beverage as one of the five basic tastes: salty, sour, bitter, sweet, and umami (the pleasant, savory taste).

All these signals are then woven together and recognized by the brain, and it is still not the absolute reflection of reality but is a highly subjective experience.

The Greed Of Living Life

Our mind is full of kind of greed to consume life to the maximum. This is not your garden variety ‘i want more money’ greed, but a force inside us to live life to the fullest.

  • This greed makes us abandon our peace of mind, our moments of real appreciation, as we rush to the next ‘high’.
  • An added disadvantage of this kind of behaviour is that one is not able to understand the true worth of what we have.
