For question 1, how come for the unless in the statement we put it as the necessary but do not negate the sufficient? I thought that rule would apply to all unless statements

I am assuming you are referring to this sentence:

" . . . and one cannot experience such pleasure unless one is capable of concentrating on a topic so intently that one loses track of one's own identity."

If so, we are negating the sufficient condition because "one cannot experience such pleasure" becomes "experience such pleasure" (i.e. derive pleasure from the satisfaction of their curiosity):

DPSC ==> CC
not CC ==> not DPSC

Hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
