what is so good about feeling bad ??
emotions are hard wired into our brains whay are bad emotions selected
for ? feeling bad about anything may not increase anyone's chances of
survival so why did emotions like hurt, sadness, etc. evolove as all of
these are relative terms why consider them in cognition at all. so why
select them ? if all they do is make the conscious mind unhappy. i
believe that all thoughts originate either consciously or sub-
consciouly to make the conscious mind happy so why did bad emotions get
selected for ?
