Substitutes

The human operates on two levels which are the impulsive (perhaps tied to biological imprinting) and the rational. That dictomy is sometimes at odds and there is a resulting tug of war between what we know from experience is right and the impulses which oppose that rationality.

It is not easy living with those two often opposing forces as the over eater or the drug addict will attest to. We can also find ourselves with love interests that are not right for us even if our hormones conspire against that knowledge.

That search for connectedness is so powerful and so innate that in its absence we may look for other substitutes.
