Let's pretend that you had the thought in your mind that nature is beautiful. That thought would be information going on in your brain. Once that thought makes you feel a positive emotion from nature, also pay attention to that emotion. You should come to realize that this emotional state isn't just an emotion. It, too, is information going on in your brain that nature is beautiful.
This clearly shows that thought information gets transferred over to the emotional areas of our brains and takes on an emotional form. But, like I said before, the emotions are the real perception/experience of beauty or horror and not the thoughts. In other words, emotions are how we truly value things in life and not our thoughts or beliefs. As you can see here, this is why I describe positive emotions as being divine states or divine energy/information.
I will say another thing here as a reminder. The thought or belief of hunger, thirst, or physical pain isn't the same thing as experiencing actual hunger, thirst, or physical pain. The same rule applies to valuing things in our lives. The only way we can experience a mental state where we value things would be through our emotions and not our thoughts. Thoughts aren't the real things and are just ideas of said things. That's why thoughts aren't real value judgments and it can only be our emotions which are the real value judgments.
