Very insightful article. Your analysis reminds me of utility in economics and the concept of diminishing marginal utility. As I consume a food for the first time my utility (happiness) is at its highest. As I consumer more of the food my utility drops resulting in me looking for the next best thing. I have to admit that I get more utility out of unpredictable rewards.
