For me the last few days I can confirm sadness would be my STRONGEST emotion that I have
ever felt in my small world.
I just lost the love of my life, my best friend for the last 15years ..my rock.. my comforter
my unconditional love... my beautiful 15yr old puppy. I try and hide my sadness, but it is so very strong and deep.
I have NEVER felt this pain before not even through the loss of my Mother.
My heart feels as though it is litterly breaking apart with pain.

My second strongest emotion would be ANGER. Anger against my self that I had to do what I had to do I will never forgive myself but, I couldn't bare to watch the pain anymore.

Then thirdly LOVE I have never loved anything/anyone more than I love him.

Rest in peace baby I will always love you!

I understand your grief losing a dog is like losing a best friend or brother, and its certainly true that Dogs are much more faithful and accepting than people.

Self-centered ness is the opposite of love. Not fear.



How is being self-centered an emotion and not a personality trait?

Thank you for understanding not alot of people do. I should have added FEAR also because I fear being without him I feel weak and broken and lost ...confused. Emotional overload first time in my life. This thread hit home in a big way.

I think it's Desire and Will by a long shot, for many reasons.
Will and Desire is how and why our civilization started, A Desire to be with others, a will to be communal and make it happen, That desire and a will to do it came forth and kept spreading through other desires and therefor will to achieve. You have a Will to obtain something a person, a item, a status, a look, a place, then you also have the desire beforehand to even have the Will.


Fear is something you can easily get rid of by the act of not caring, not easy for most but easiest for others.

I would have to disagree with your OP on love.... I would define Love as the strongest emotion. And the best way for me to state this is.

I fear not hatred because hatred is all they know and has limits. But fear the one who loves unconditionally and turns to hatred/evil for that's where the unpredictable and most evil of deeds will come from. Love is the strongest emotion.

If this has been stated my apologies. I saw this thread up the other day but I was a silent lurker on ATS yesterday.

In my opinion and I'd like to also say in this planets reality... Fear is the strongest emotion. Some fears cannot be overcome. Fear of being killed is one of them. I can't really say what I fear because I am not at witness to say so on this website.

Once we overcome fear, we will do things and say things that we wouldn't have done or said.

There will never be peace unless the computer controlling everyone allows it.

There is no such thing as an "Emotion"


Love, hate, fear, lust, want, need, grief, sadness, joy, desire, etc...

These are all just words to describe the bodys hormonal response to its environment.

All "emotions" are just different aspects of the same thing.

Depending on the circumstances we simply give it a certain name.


Love

What we call Love is not an emotion, but a personal bond,

enriched and sustained (or not) by hormonal responses stimulated by our partner.

Same with hate, jealousy, fear, grief, desire or any emotion concerned with a person.


Object

Emotional attachment to an object is a subjective experience,

a hormonal response to an object and the memories or meaning attached to it.


Experience

Emotions do not exist, the words are simply subjective hormonal onamatapea.

As much as a knock or a drip or a pop exists, so does an emotion.

As an expression of something else.

Everyone experiences the world subjectively,

so the answer to your question will be different for everyone.

Tfw.

There are two base emotions from which all others stem: Love and Fear. Fear is by far the most powerful emotional driving force that controls the body... its survival or fight or flight. Fear keeps us away from the bad things and alive.

No, emotions do exist. Emotions are chemically charged in the brain based off of our thoughts to make us feel a certain way and act a certain way. It's how we perceive fear/love in our lives. Besides the bodys make-up, It's all in the person's perception as to what specific chemicals are made/released.

Perfect picture to talk about perception; you love this dog because its big, sweet and cuddly, but I could fear the # out of it because it looks like a big, threatening dog.

Cute pup.

I would argue that your sadness and anger are both extensions of fear. Fear of what? Not sure... We can all fear the loss of things because of how they effect us and 'comfort' us emotionally.

The strongest emotion is: Passion

Passion in turn evokes Love/Anger/Hate, and all the colors in between.

Passion can be used beneficially to enhance the world around you - whether it be for Love or Art or Sports or almost anything you don't seem to understand why you love it so much...

Then there are the Mark David Chapman's of the world. Mark David Chapman said he shot John Lennon because it was the "will of God" that made him do it.

"Dimebag" Darrell, guitarist of metal band Pantera was shot onstage by Nathan Gale, ex-Marine and a passionate fan of Pantera. It's speculated that Gale killed the guitarist because of the breakup of Pantera.

Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated by Nathuram Godse; a political nutjob who shot and killed Gandhi at point blank range - why? because he held Gandhi guilty of favouring Pakistan and strongly opposed the doctrine of nonviolence.

Passion is a sonovab*tch!

It can be used to create the most beautiful symphonies ever felt by the human soul... yet it can also convince someone to strap a bomb around their waist and drive their car into the busiest intersection... all in the name of their Lord!

Passion!

I say Passion the strongest emotion.

No they don't.....No it isn't. It's not how we "perceive" anything.

It's how we interpret hormonal responses to internal or external stimuli.

Nonsense.

What does "chemically charged" mean?

Who is making us "feel a certain way and act a certain way" and why?

No. The chemicals being released control the perception of the situation.

Everyones chemical mix is slightly different,

So everyone's individual perception of a given situation will be different.

Just from looks alone or if there was an action involved to fear? to see him in my yard and he didn't react to you walking past my place would fear still enter your being or would he have to be territorial and start barking and acting all tough by pouncing towards you with a growl to feel fear?

our perceptions can be deceiving at times and to judge a book just by its cover when imposing that saying onto a living creature can be discriminatory towards some.

However I completely understand what your saying and just had ask that question as I see fear as a more negative emotion and when someone fears that which I love, I must stand up and say your fear is unwarranted as you are only fearing the unknown, get to meet Tyson and see that when you know him your initial fear wasn't of him but of not knowing him.

I wish more had a chance to him and experience the joy he brought me and still does when I think of the good times.

He was my 65kg teddy bear,

Now I only have my 50kg Sonja, my Princess who like to lie down like a porn star most of the time

Fear.

That's how the world was created.

In the beginning there was darkness, and God was alone in the darkness. God became afraid of being alone, and in his terror, he shouted, "Let there be Light !" And there was light. And the light divided the darkness, the one became the many, he was no longer alone, he saw, and it was good.

Fear is the creator of all things.

Whatever you fear might happen, happens.




for the trouble you expect will come.

-- The Gospel of Thomas #21





www.pbs.org...

What ever you're worried about, comes to pass, because it's created by the "fear" in your mind.

Whatever you try to avoid, comes to meet you. Like a magnet, you attract and bring into being everything which you fear.


While things you love, and want, have a way of slipping out of your grasp, instead. And moving away from you.

I rescind my previous post. I believe I experienced the strongest emotion, just as I did 25 years ago, (almost to the very day), today.

The strongest emotion, which is actually primal instinct, is a mother's love for her child (whether the child is a mere babe, or an adult). To not be able to be there for her baby, even though she hears the baby crying out for her Mother.

It really rips the soul apart.
