Natural Affection is association that does not necessarily contain any content of Consequential Value, such that it
would cause an emotional response.
Sensation is the sensory response of the
Human Sensory Apparatus, like any of the five senses such as taste or smell to stimulation. It is the feeling derived from sensations both exterior and interior to the body, and can be anything from stomach pain to the witness of a shooting star. Amorphous Sensation is sensory registration, wherein the sensory response is not so much affected by
Association. Present sensory experience and feelings may or may not be affected by Association. One may gaze at a hilltop without attaching any particular associations to it. Or one may instantly associate something like 'steep climb'. The attempt to stop the associative process can be found in practices such as Meditation.
Association may alter the sensory response and feeling
itself in a present experience. Association attaches images
and feelings from the memory to present experience as sensory sensation, like the smell of decay may indicate rotting wood. Association is necessary to the recognition, identification
and context of any or all elements of the sphere of sensory perception. The response of the sensory apparatus is direct, instantaneous and automatic, like one may jump at the sound
of an unexpected loud noise, or it is affected by association
which enables the individual to distinguish between the multitudes of sensory stimulations. Associations are the instantaneous memory of past experience and thinking, which
are recalled, and simultaneously are compared automatically
or selectively, to present experience or thinking, for the purpose of identification, classification, implication and context.
