The Meaning of Emotions

(worth repeating)

[I]f I am correct, and that all emotions are reflections in change in state of property en toto, then all statements of experience are objectively describable independent of statements of experience. And differences in experience are differences in evolutionary strategy. And evolutionary strategies can be decided meritocratically.

This knowledge is as dehumanizing as the insights of Darwin, Copernicus, Galileo, Machiavelli, and Aristotle. That does not mean it is not true. I am just as certain that it is, as they were of their own statements.

This does not prevent us from making compromises. It merely prevents the state from imposing involuntary compromises upon us.
The individual cares how he feels Others care how he feels We can learn how someone feels. But we cannot decide a conflict based upon how someone feels. Feelings are a gauge, but a gage of individual demand for acquisition and retention and that is all.
