Life Conclusions

 

Psychology of Emotion

What started out as a language concepts analysis with psychological implications became a revelation on

human life and philosophy. If all language concepts have two concepts, Emotional and Factual and these are

based on the realities of existence which we experience throughout our periods of existence, then we can come to the logical conclusion there are two realities which we can apply to everyday human life. There are, in the analysis of any human situation, always two realities in play and it is the ability to distinguish the difference between the two which have throughout history determined the successful evolution of human society.   

EMOTIONAL REALITY  Vs FACTUAL REALITY


The question of what reality is, has become a major question in the 21st century according to the Gregorian

calendar as used in most parts of the world, which strangely, the number which used to be the coming of age for humans in ages past. In this case it seems humans are far from reaching the age of intellectual maturity since they are still, after millennia, incapable of understanding the difference, between Emotional Reality and Factual Reality.

Factual Reality, the reality which is accepted as a universal truth and Emotional Reality a reality created to

suit an individual belief or thought process at odds with Factual Reality. Example for those who might have a problem understanding the concept, I have met numerous people who for some reason have a problem understanding the concepts, (an emotionally loaded comment) the image we wake up to everyday, the source of life itself, the Sun is a perfect representation of Factual Reality since all humans accept, without question, its existence. On the other side of Factual Reality, an Emotional Reality, the belief the Earth is flat as opposed to a sphere. 

The academic description of the two concepts:

FACTUAL REALITY refers to the objective truth or verifiable facts about the world around us, as opposed to subjective interpretations or opinions. It is based on empirical evidence and can be independently verified through observation, measurement, and experimentation. Factual reality encompasses all aspects of the physical and natural world, including scientific laws, historical events, and current affairs. It is not influenced by personal beliefs, biases, or emotions, but is rather based on verifiable data and evidence. Factual reality provides a basis for understanding and interpreting the world around us and is essential for making informed decisions and forming accurate conclusions.

EMOTIONAL REALITY refers to the subjective and personal experience of emotions, including feelings, perceptions, and interpretations of one's emotional state. Unlike factual reality, which is based on objective evidence, emotional reality is based on personal beliefs, attitudes, and experiences, and is often influenced by subjective factors such as culture, upbringing, and individual differences. Emotional reality includes both conscious and unconscious processes, and may involve a range of physiological responses, including changes in heart rate, breathing, and hormonal activity. Emotional reality can also influence cognitive processes, such as attention, memory, and decision-making, and can have a profound impact on behavior and relationships with others. While emotional reality is subjective and can be difficult to quantify or measure, it is an important aspect of human experience and plays a critical role in shaping our perceptions, motivations, and interactions with the world around us.

On a day to day basis we can apply the same concepts to provide a greater understanding and precision to the

concept of truth and untruth. It is our Positive, Negative and Neutral feelings which control  our logic and

interpretations of what any particular reality is, which can be in total denial of Factual Reality. The language

concepts conditioning which enters our head during childhood in relation to the society into which we are

born, have been conditioned over generations and sadly all our different societies have developed many

different philosophies of life due mainly to the variety of leaders and their level of humanity or inhumanity.

I could be far more specific however I will leave it up to you the reader to think more deeply into what history has taught us are the main causes of human conflicts and their relationship to the two new concepts which are a more precise definitions of truth and untruths.

On an individual basis these two concepts can help us all in our relationships with other human

beings since basing life on Factual Reality and being honest with ourselves and with others leads to cooperation and the  creation of the evolution of human society. Concepts throughout time have created our linguistic knowledge with a multitude of languages and logic processes to complicate our lives and create the divisions which have caused us so much anguish throughout history.

WE ARE THE EMOTIONAL BEING

The reason why there is and has been so much division and destruction. We have allowed our emotions

uncontrolled access to our decisions believing them to be working in our best interests, thinking they are

the Factual Reality of our lives. This applies not only to the big decisions in our lives, it also applies to the 

little things in life as well. Linguistically there are the large lexical concepts and then there are the little grammar concepts which play a major role in transmitting the strength of the emotional communication.
A very modern example of this is the controversy over the emotional impact of the use of pronouns. I have

been aware of the role of emotion in pronoun use and have been adapting my usage since the late 80's. The 

use of "you" being a perfect example of a little old grammar concept carrying major emotional implications.
 

Emotional Intelligence

                                

In 1990 a paper was published some 4 years after I began my research into  Emotion which confirmed my

thoughts on the linguistic aspects of emotional influence was on the right track. I have since come to the

conclusion Emolinguistics is the science underpinning EQ. Some people use the abbreviation EI, however I

feel the important aspect is the degree of Emotional Intellegence we have not that we all have an Emotional

Intellegence, in the same way we refer to IQ as opposed to I.

 

There are many aspects relating to the Psychology of Emotion in relation to EQ and a small industry is

producing many concepts relating to our emotional being. I believe there two basic concepts related to EQ

which allow us to judge all aspects of our lives. If we live our lives allowing these two concepts to control our

interpretations of any situation in which we find ourselves possibly, just possibly, humans might wake up

to the role our emotions have on our understanding of life and our ability to live with one another in peace and respect for life.

 

Emotional Intelligence is the ability to distinguish the difference between:

 

FACTUAL REALITY AND EMOTIONAL REALITY

Emotional Reality: Sexual desire comes in only one form.

Factual Reality: Sexual desires come in many forms.

Factual Reality: There are 1000s of Gods.

Emotional Reality: There is only 1 God.

Factual Reality: The Earth is a Sphere.
Emotional Reality: The Earth is flat.

Positive, Negative, Neutral.

Life is electrifying.

 

 

 

Language is the source of all our concepts and a record of evolution. 

EMOLINGUISTICS IS A CHALLENGING CONCEPT
