Are emotions just an illusion?

    Do you experience real emotions or just act like you've been taught by the society.

    If someone makes a good joke you are expected to laugh.
    If someone says a sad thing you are supposed to feel sorry for that person.
    If you are in a room with happy people, e.g. at a party, why should you behave like you are happy as well?

    What if you don't want to play the game? If you simply don't care or are not in the mood to act like you were having some emotions in a certain situation.

    What if we all just pretend to have emotions, but in fact feel nothing inside?

    When I cum.
    I feel a very good emotion.
    It is the only emotion I ever need.

    Psychopaths fake their emotions. Most other people have real emotions.

    You would definitely know if you felt nothing inside. And even if an emotion was just a learned reaction it would work in the same way so who cares.

    What's the problem.


    I agree with Jes.

    You feel what you feel. End of story. If you don't feel happy when at a party with happy people, you don't feel happy. It is really that simple.

    Here, Polychron, listen to this song for about 10 minutes straight.

    Imagine the two robots jumping around, dancing and high-fiving each other. Then stop posting these threads, please, it's seriously getting on everyone's nerves.
