|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.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story 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. Conclusion 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. Seattle, July 14, 2009 - Gerald X.
