My pets, my children, my stable marriage, nature, music, learning Italian, even my work. The fact that I DO have stuff I love in my life which most of the time compensates for the huge gaps and failures.

There's a lot, but one crucial thing is that the older I get, the less ###$ i give, frankly speaking.
It's a bliss.

There are many mentions of the acetylcholine-mediated pleasure of various types of beauty, which I quoted above. I myself likewise get a large portion of my pleasure from beauty in its various forms.

In the case of music (which three people mentioned), music varies greatly in its type and degree of beauty (some music containing no beauty at all), and much music contains vulgarity (meaning the opposite of beauty), so one should always be specific when mentioning music, or else it doesn't mean much. N1ghty mentioned "darkwave music", which I was unfamiliar with, but I have looked up its description, and based upon that description, it seems like it is beautiful.

The psychopathic APA psychiatrists who write the DSM say that we are "schizoid" and have a "disorder" because we lack the serotonin-mediated social pleasures, yet they do not consider it to be any kind of disorder to lack the acetylcholine-mediated pleasure of beauty. I doubt that the DSM authors are capable of perceiving and enjoying the subtle beauty in things such as solitude, silence, the night sky, and the rain.
