Why do you say that ? negative sensations force the subject to look for
the releave of pain, search company and seek for pleasure. All these
actions usally means survival. By the way I consider that the emotions
are not the subject of selections but the individuals that experience
them.
I agree with you only while talking about depression. This particular
state is like a terminal desease and might not help to survive.
