But its just that feelings and fears are not itmemarial. They are directly controlled by synapses in the brain; when you feel a sensation, that is simply your brain telling you that you feel this way. You do not choose to feel this way of your own accord; something triggers that reaction in your brain, your brain processes it and determines the appropriate response, and sends you the impulse that changes or amplifies your mood. This is not my case here; this has been proven for quite some time before now, IIRC. There is no magic feeling fog floating around in your brain, if thats what youre getting at. Its for these reasons that people who feel depressed, for example, cannot simply choose to feel better; they are not in complete control of their own emotions. They are simply reacting to the emotions that their brain gives them. We dont always understand what our brain is reacting to in context because the reaction can be very complicated, or in response to something so minute and discreet that we arent aware of it but its still there, and the chemical reaction is still taking place.

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails using the exact same comment. Is there any way you can eliminate me from that service? Thanks! lululemon sale http://www.buylululemonoutlet.com/
