Many people may even feel ashamed of taking pleasure from viewing internet media involving squishing jelly matter, melting things or just viewing lava slowly flowing from its source. They have a strange meditative effect on a person’s psyche, a certain trigger that awakens an oddly satisfying feeling of calm and inner fulfillment.

If you are ceaselessly looking for a true definition of what is that thing that fits your understanding of what is "oddly satisfying" then take a look of this video of things melting as another example of the inexplicable feeling we all know.

If the internet is a record of our collective unconscious, it is not just a mere coincidence that so many of us are watching these videos. There is a theory that when people watch certain media genres over and over, they start to associate that media with the feeling they get while watching, whether that is happy, calm or de-stressed. Or, in simple terms, people feel better when watching the things they like.

Melting things is just one media category people enjoy watching. The sight of substance changing its aggregate shape, color, texture and basically its own essence evokes meditative sensations in the spectator. Melting things has become a fad category, drawing millions of viewers every day. It started in the kitchen of a father who was trying to satisfy the curiosity of his son: The What Would Happen if We Melt a Gummi Bear Project. The father videoed the whole process and then uploaded it to YouTube. This homegrown experiment took in different objects melted in a microwave, stove, with a blowtorch and the videos’ popularity skyrocketed.
