One does not have to have neurological problems to experience
pleasure from pain.  This is a simple rebound effect from
opponent-process.  The classic example is the pleasure
one experiences when the parchute opens after experiencing
the terrior of jumping out of a plane.

The correlational opponent-processing theory using wavelets, quasi-
holographic memory and eigenfunction equivalence generates new insights into 
many areas of psychology.  The model seems especially strong in joining many 
contradictory scientific facts into an unifying whole.  Significant 
implications from the model exist for a wide range of psychological topics and 

The correlational opponent-processing theory is a neuro homeostasis
integration psychological immune theory that would connect phenomena such as 
sensation, perception, movement, habituation, memory, representations, 
learning, cognition, personality, psychopathology, paradoxical integration, 
emotion, and evolution of the mind under a unified theory.

All brain activity may be viewed as an effort to assimilate and
accommodate all experience into neuro-energy-efficient eigenfunction
equivalence or quasi-holographic correlational opponent-processing

Stimuli causes brain wave modulations which interact with carrier or
reference wavelets.  This interaction creates a quasi-holographic
stimulus wavelet.  The opponent-process creates an opposing quasi-
holographic memory wavelet.  Through this process the correlations or 
associations of experience are encoded to memory.  Every wavelet, regardless 
of source or type, triggers an opposing wavelet.  The function of the opposing 
wavelet or feedback is to diminish the
intensity of neural processing.  A wavelet potential is stored or hard
wired as long-term potentiation opponent-processes in nerve cells and
the interconnections between nerve cells.  The wavelets are quasi-
holographic and allow recovery of information due to the interaction of
reference carrier wavelets and stimuli, thought, motor movement, and
emotional arousal.
