Message from Neuromancer in Montreal Storm #general
emotions are by definition irrational
love is as irrational as hate,
doesn't mean its not meaningful
so it doesn't mean anything to say it's irraitonal
it's still inseparable from us as humans, hate is a natural faculty, those who don't feel it are supressing it
I never said it wasn't meaningful. I simply wouldn't subject myself to pure emotion while making decisions in life
I guess I'm just so used to suppressing it that it's part of who I am
in general I agree but often gut feelings are necessary in decision making, business 101 courses will teach this
Emotions are much more easily manipulated
suppressing natural emotions is really not healthy man
many psychological/physical disorders come from this
lol oh yeah?
you are easily in control of your emotions?
In most cases
There are extreme cases
like if a close family member would be murdered
most emotions are totally unconscious to you
I can prove you wrong by presenting 10 items to you
and reliably predicting which ones you will pick
this is how marketing/advertising works
it manipulates emotions that most people aren't aware of
that guide out behaviour
Yeah which is why I dislike such fields
since most people think like you and are under the illusion that they (which they define as their rational faculty) are in control
because they disprove your metaphysical worldview haah!
but they are also very unethical I agree
the notion that we are primarily in control of our emotions and decisions has been long disproven in the lab
love him I dont care what moonie says
Deafmute I have to go, do we know each other IRL
