This may be in the wrong forum...if it is, mods feel free to move it.
Now. On to the matter. This will be (trolls permitting) a discussion regarding a splice of two subjects: the chemical balance of the brain, and the
metaphysical aspect of our physical reality.
It is largely believed by the scientific community that since the various emotions of the human mind can be replicated through chemical processes, it
must be that the original emotions also can to be through such means. This, in essence, completely devalues the emotions themselves...there is no
magic, no special feelings, no nothing. Simple chemical reactions, bottled within the various organs making up the human brain.
As a result of this, there are people who have concluded (quite erroneously, in my opinion, but to each their own) that emotions no longer have a
place except as influences, just like any other factor in our lives. Emotions, to them, no longer have a "special place"; they are as simple as
thoughts, and just as easily discarded. Meditation and hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and various other techniques corroborate this
Emotions can be both programmed and discarded like yesterday's software.
This, I will not argue with. That, being evidently based on a chemical structure, renders emotions consequently malleable, I will not contend with.
That we can abolish all emotion, or become completely overrun, each to our developmental labs' desire, is not the question.
What then, is the question?
Here, I will raise the point that bring metaphysics into the arena. Metaphysics, quite simply, states that for every physical object, action, or
emotion, there is a corresponding reaction on a sub or super-plane...the metaphysical plane. This plane compares to our reality (of which we know
painfully little, despite any and all attempts to pretend otherwise) as a gem which is placed in a dark room. You look at it; it doesn't shine, gleam,
or appear translucent. This is our reality. Now, if you were to apply light to that same gem, suddenly it sparkles! It's transparent, shiny, and quite
pleasing to the eye. This is the metaphysical realm.
This may not make much sense to you. Why? Why does the light make a difference? Because it allows the viewer to look deeper. It creates the conditions
in which we may observe the ENTIRETY of that gem. And because we cannot create the proper conditions, or train ourselves to reach the appropriate
state, we are stuck in a perpetually dark room, staring at a perpetually dark concept. Chemicals and physical matter.
Those chemicals in the brain may be (and yes, I know you will argue with this) simply the physical aspect of a much larger, much more important energy
on a different plane, the metaphysical plane.
You cannot disprove nor prove this except by comparing it to other matters. For instance, telekinesis and telepathy. Supposedly dubious, but recently
proven. The transferal of energy. Where did this energy come from? How did it travel?
By the metaphysical plane.
This is but one example. There are many more, but I will leave you to do the work. Only by exploring ourselves can we find the answers. But do we
explore? Regretfully, not as much as we should. We consistently look at the surface of things, never aware that we only see the top of the water,
rather than the middle or bottom. We believe we are seeing all there is to see...wake up and realize: we do not know everything. There is so much more
to be found, and science cannot grasp it...that does not mean it is not real.
The main reason I introduce this subject is because we must learn that the mystery beyond the physical reality we see is the most wonderful aspect of
life. The wonder, the majesty of that which we do not understand (but perhaps someday, we will) is the best part of it, until we actually UNDERSTAND
it. Everything that has an influence upon the energetic plane, including emotions, has a marvelous quality of magic and mystery that is more potent
than any science we can come up with. Just because we do not understand, doesn't mean it is nonexistent. Just because science cannot yet explain it,
does not mean it is fallacy.
It simply means science is too young to understand. Remember that, and see.
(discussions most welcome)
