why do I care?
    #2352980 - 02/19/04 02:55 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Where do all my feelings come from?
Hate, love and fear are all felt in the same place for me...
Anger, happiness and jealousy are in another...
So, does hate come from the belly and happiness from the heart, or is it all really in my head? What drives me to have these feelings about things? I cannot place my finger on the answer, even though I know it's right there... it's like having an itch in the middle of my back where I can reach it, but only barely... someone help me out please??

Actually, your feelings aren't really yours.

It's true. They're actually part of a revolving, pass-along, loan system. The system is self-sustaining and all it requires are humans to experience the emotions and then give them back when they're done with them. It works kind of like a library.

The real question you should be asking yourself is "who owns these feelings?"
Well, since I'm the head loan officer AND President of the Universal Feelings and Loan Bank, then I suppose the answer is ME.
And I want them back... NOW!!

I think what he means is that feelings are conditioned responses put into you by society. I'm not sure I agree entirely, but it's certainly not a baseless assertion.

hmm... interesting...
but I wonder if i misstated the original question...
I would like to know what spark drives the trigger of the "conditioned responses"...
what causes me to even care what I feel in the first place?

Usually, the events in your childhood, IMO.

There is a part of your brain that regulates emotions, your body does release certain chemicals which make you feel a certain way.

All the "feelings" come from there, they are a lot of times spawned by thoughts, or for me, it can work both ways. I can feel shitty for no reason, then think shitty stuff.

Or i can think shitty stuff, then feel like shit.

What causes you to care, is the fact that you are... you. ITs yourself reacting to the things in your life. Your conciousness reflects back at you and you ask, this is or isnt something i care about.

but the fact that you asked this question, probably proves that you do care, cause you are inquisitive. How you got to this question is probably a big mix of factors.

What?
