It is a really interesting and intriguing topic that more scientists should go into. But it needs to be looked at in a different perspective.
There are so many different kinds of emotions both created from an internal source and also an external source.
An external source is the easiest to explain and is more of a triggered emotion. Say your son was just born and his beautiful new born face is looking
up at you and he gurgles something that sounds like "da-da". To be a father and their baby look up at them like that for the first time and hear its
first gurgle sound like "dad". Anybody would be extremely happy beyond no belief. That can be one of the most happiest times if not the happiest of
a fathers life. That emotion was triggered within us because it is an extremely awarding and memorial event that makes us feel special for this to
An example of an internal source can be catagorized and easily explained as; yes, it is definately possible to control an emotion, but it depends on
what is happening at the present time, are you trying to force an emotion on yourself that you wouldnt normally be feeling at the present time?
Convincing yourself to look at a different perspective of the situation that you would usually think to be depressing... and look at the things that
are good in the situation. You can convince yourself that there is happiness in that situation by looking at the good parts and explain to yourself
why you should be happy, this situation that should be looked at as a lesson instead of an inconvenience and take the happiness from it because the
negative side will only keep you down. This definately does not happen in every situation and completely depends on the individual and how he/she
handles a situation.
From this technique I believe people can feel certain emotions from an internal source.
People can create their own happiness it all depends on how they take a certain situation.
