Didn't he mention Parkinson's may have been caused in some cases by lack of novelty?
I think there is a sweet spot for novelty,the length of time for mundane jobs is short possibly 1 year even 6 months,for a career this time extends a bit further,if your into it maybe 10 years before the longing comes.
Then for personal life like marriage we have the popular 7 year itch,there are so many unhappy marriages it's becoming hilarious,people will go to extraordinary lengths to not deal with a dead marriage,for the kids they stick it out only for the kids to end up traumatised by the depressed and bitter parents.
How do you deal with novelty in a marriage?
You have to turn in back into a courtship. Cahllenging, when by law you must produce the next generation of cannon fodder. Married people have to pay more taxes, i dont unnderstand why it's done. You can have receptions, rings, and faith, all without the state. But it's so ingrained in the consciousnesses of people ever since the church stepped in to control the lives of their subjects, that it still ensares people. I think once you commit to the state you're done for.
