As can be seen on the chart, there are three feeling states – pleasant, unpleasant and neutral.
These relate to the simple terminal correlations that produce a “current” in electricity, water, air and the psyche as it is read emotionally.
The physical body of mankind is a universal piece of kit that utilises basic instincts and feelings to interface with its environment, to then gauge the existential experience personally with emotions that are only then culture, gender and language specific.
The instincts can be referred to as being 1. security instinct 2. social instinct 3. sex instinct.
The instincts braid together developmentally in a reactive container that is the feeling differentiator, as a plasma of feelings flow around the instincts like coolant around nuclear fuel rods, expansions and contractions occur that produce the three previously mentioned states as pressure systems that are similar to an inner meteorology. (link to 2018 post added in 2019)
Even the word ‘depression’ is a term that is utilised to describe low pressure in meteorology and low feelings that translate as depressed emotions psychologically.
When the inner sun is out, or even when the attempt to lighten up is made artificially, then people sometimes say that they feel ‘high’.
The inner pressure system of feelings links to the blood pressure system as the blood flow is directly affected by the instinctive reaction to life and the regulating effect of the heart.
This inner system produces a flow, a current of feelings that provide the possibility of this motion being understood emotionally.
The descending and the ascending pressure “energy” has to be connected by the word transcending otherwise there is no energy flow.
“If dull people lose the idea of God nothing happens – not immediately at least. But socially the masses begin to breed mental epidemics, of which we have now a fair number.” C. G. Jung, Psychology & Religion (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1938) 105.
The transcending connector to the descending and the ascending pressure system that is vital for a person’s feeling experience is their very sense of the moment, that then connects with their emotional barometer.
In these times, mental health practitioners generally do not know the difference between a feeling and an emotion and the terms are conflated into being the same term.
This error is disastrous as it makes escape from the feeling to emotion disconnect almost impossible. Plus it renders whole swathes of ill people as being offered up experimentally to the big drug companies who have then peddled their synthetic transcendental connection for their inner pressure system breakdown, with merely anaesthetic results.
The pain of disconnect has been and still is being clumsily and ignorantly experimented upon by the big pharmaceutical companies amidst them making huge amounts of money, but the Spiritual diseases identified by Jung in 1938 are left to infest Mankind unabated.
The Johnson & Johnson criminal conviction this year (2019) in the US indicates just how unethical and disconnected is the whole treatment industry when it comes to Mankind’s current existential breakdown.
