The central idea is that pleasure in the mind results when two ideas come together with a neat match or neat fit. 

Examples:

-   when you see the answer to a puzzle;

-   when you see the point of a joke;

-   when something happens that you expected;

-   or when a poem's second line rhymes with the first line.

To see any of the forty examples, use the side-bar or visit the Tree.

 

*          Why does it matter?

*          Who has suggested this before?

*          What is the difference between fitting and matching?

*          How do the parts of the Tree branch out from each other?

*          How might it work inside the brain?
