    … or have an iced tea when I'm craving an iced tea? How about when I find something funny, and don't want to laugh, but can't help myself?

    So, we're made a certain way for a reason, and I guess when I want to speak to someone and they speak back in kind, there's a reason for that too. How about when I want to speak to someone, but they don't want to? I guess the negative affect of them not wanting to would be a reason not to keep trying, otherwise I'd keep receiving the negatives of, but when its a shared thing, then I guess there's a reason for that.

    Anyway, why do you think we're made the way we're made?

    Ever think to yourself and find the process manipulated? It can be difficult to comprehend reading material, words, and ways of expression when the act of thinking for self is manipulated, or hindered, or attempts made to force the no think mind. I'm not on auto pilot. I'm a living breathing soul, who is still living and learning and coveying and expressing, and staying true to my convictions.

    Answering the title: Why do I want to eat when I get hungry:

    Because my body needs food to live, and nature requires the instinct of self-survival for my body to sustain its existence long enough to procreate.

    Why not even after you procreate? I think protection is a good thing if you can only stay until you procreate. Hell, it's a good idea anyway unless there's another way to umm sustain your life before it's time to go. That's the point I guess. We're made like we're made because we came from those like us. The fact that we're alive and our body guides us by the spirit and life inside, pretty much solidifies the need to umm … listen to it. So, when I'm hungry I try to eat. When I'm thirsty, I try to get some fluids in me. When I find something funny, I laugh. Yup … That's life.
