Touch and its Potential (standard:Creative non-fiction, 1197 words)

Sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, change of position or orientation and other human sensitivities enable us to sense the presence of danger, feel loved and experience many more emotions and sensations. Here is how I think it all happens.

for comprehension by a listener.  The slower processing time of the 
first speaker's speech may also imply slower processing time for 
comprehension in context.  On the other hand, the rapid speaker quickly 
becomes annoyed and distracted by the pedantic and boring utterings of 
the slower speaker. 

This breakdown in true communication among members of a society who
share a common language puts up a hazardous barrier to understanding, 
especially between generations.  The consequences are clearly evident 
in such events as the Kent State Massacre and the Chicago riots. 

For this reason, the patience and grace of good education are needed on
a much wider scale throughout human society, so that 
endocrine-stimulated behavior can be delayed until brain-analyzed 
evaluation has taken place.  This often-criticized "scientific method" 
is a rejection of behavior that results from an instantaneous endocrine 
response.   When cranial processing is complete, it can modify the 
endocrine response (e.g. "pull the punch") to avoid misunderstanding 
and possible conflict. 

An awareness of all these sophisticated senses can help an individual to
discover how internal awareness of endocrine response to real and 
virtual events can be felt, interpreted, monitored, guided and (if 
necessary) acted on or suppressed at will. 

Observations and Commentary 

The 3-dimensional spectrum of "feelings" or "emotions" can be defined
and visualized as a function of the endocrine cocktail generated by 
thoughts and experiences. A loving caress may generate the endocrine 
elixir of exhilaration; a cruel insult may generate the endocrine 
cocktail of fury.  A full map of the spectrum would provide a clue to 
the chemical formulary that is responsible for human social 
interaction, development of culture and successful interaction with an 
environment as well as with each other. 

As human development continues its inexorable progress, responding to
the demands of environmental change, improved communication is needed 
for efficient cooperative action.  This means better understanding 
through the standardized evaluation of feelings and emotions in terms 
of actual, individual endocrine secretions.  Individual people who have 
explored their own feelings and know how to modify their behavior 
appropriately in response to each feeling are at an advantage in a 
competitive world.  Learning this art is, perhaps, needed at the core 
of social education -- the earlier in life, the better.  Planetary 
resources are no longer sufficient to support the controlling and 
destructive interactions between and among humans.  A tighter bonding 
among human communities -- ethically, compassionately, lovingly -- is 
essential to success in meeting the challenges of this century. With a  
clearer focus on the relationship between sensory detection and 
physical action, a clearer picture of  "what to do, where, when and how 
to do it, as well as why"  can emerge simultaneously among those 
working toward a common goal. 


This very short introduction to juxtaposing endocrine response against
stimuli and subsequent behavior is intended to arouse interest in those 
who wish to pursue better human understanding.  Please feel free to 
modify or improve on the subject and pass it on to others who have a 
common interest. 


*  quantity and concentration of secretions from each endocrine gland
stimulated by a message from sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, change 
of position or orientation, presence of danger etc.
