Happiness Delivery

According to Alexandria Tava, "what you see is a myosin protein dragging an endorphin along a filament to the inner part of the brain's parietal cortex which creates happiness. Happiness. You're looking at happiness."

I am sitting with the question of why this sight disturbs me slightly.

The realization that I would be perfectly fine with the endorphin floating as if moved along by a current of fluid or energy as apposed to being dragged as it is by the myosin protein to brain's parietal cortex unsettles me as much as the notion of the protein having a mind of its own.
