Re: Evolution of Emotional Pairs
Did each emotion in the animal barin evolve for a reason, or did some emotions result from the birth of another.
For example, fear could have evolved to make us cautious which protects us. But did feelings of comfort and security evolve just for pleasure, or did we realize them only because we had fear to compare them to?
I'm wondering if every emotion has an evolutionary backing to it, or if only some emotions were selected for, and others came about simply because we "realized" them in comparison to the other.
Where is 'in' the brain?
How does the brain tell us where, and what, an emotion is?
Why would matter want to evolve to serve consciousness?
How can "fear" move or affect matter?
What sort of 'forcing' is it when fear 'forces' us to be cautious?
How do you possess an emotion?
How does an emotion come into existence by 'realizing' one?
How do arbitrarily constructed linguistic conveniences (such as the term of reference 'emotion') become things that exist?
