"Somebody explain to this brat who I am."
Mister George Kapland
So what does your high feel like?
"No. I don't. It's a subjective experience brought on by chemicals in the brain. What some consider to be "love" I consider to be a rush of endorphins and oxytocin that is easily replicated by the liberal ingestion of chemicals. "Love" as a feeling is nothing more than the triggering of synapses, you cannot measure love, you cannot quantify it, as it is a completely subjective experience."
You know you fling subjectivity around but all but 1 thing is subjective. You can't measure self awareness either. Not even your own yet the ONLY OBJECTIVITY we hold... "I think therefore I am". The only reason we cannot measure that stuff is because it's actually beyond our comprehension factually speaking. We can't define love, one day we might(if it exists) be able to and THEN we will be able to measure it. I mean, we can comprehend it but only enough to experience it, we ourselves only understand enough about it to experience it. But beyond that, we cannot put into words, a pure description of it.
If it exists... and it's above our comprehension, we cannot hope to measure it anyways. All we know is that allegedly, it's what the self awareness experiences because of said triggering synapses. It's not the triggering itself, it's a reaction. I'm not saying, you couldn't just wire someone's brain to fall in love with someone else. But that doesn't make it nonexistent either. Also "I think therefore I am" should also prove "feeling" is more than just triggering synapses because, we as the self awareness... can feel it. I mean "I think therefore I am" only proves your own existence to yourself objectively, so that applies to this too.
You don't objectively know that I'm not just THINKING I feel, instead of actually knowing I feel. But you technically know for yourself... because if feeling is this experience, you know whether said experience is actually happening or if you are just saying it's happening when it's not. I'm aware of this experience I call feeling.
"You have nothing left to say once you said that. You're done. Get the ******** out of the ED."
Seriously, you enter my topic... for which the rules were laid down by how I presented the discussion, and you want to tell me exactly what the rules are. "I think it is, for reasons mentioned and then some." I announced it being opinion, and you got all pissed at me because why? I'm confused, because your reasoning was off topic. Considering again, it was made clear what level of objectivity at which I claimed this stuff from the beginning.
