    • Freud revealed how much of our minds are devoted to forbidding.
    • Freud՚s particular modularity of mind – the superego in charge of forbidding the id to seek out its pleasures. The superego is so important and central to our being that forbidden pleasures necessarily become the most prominent in our thinking – so much of our time and energy devoted to thinking about them, imagining them, figuring out how to avoid them. It distracts us from the unforbidden pleasures that are more accessible and, ulitmately, more satisfying.
