On the pilot episode of Caprica (The Syfy Channel) Daniel Greystone tells Joseph Adams (Adama) that "A difference that makes no difference, is no difference".   The human condition wants novelty - change.  When there is no change, there's boredom.

I'm reading "The Science of Happiness" by Stefan Klein, PHD.  Dopamine - the molecule of desire is what drives us.  It is the desire that makes us smart and without it learning is difficult.  Curiosity goes with that -  "it is one of the personality's most stable indicators" says Dr. Klein. 

So next time someone says - what do you want to do today -------  don't say   -  I'm indifferent.
