A sudden pain in the chest may be considered simply a mild aggravation, in which not much notice is taken, and not much reaction is exhibited. This is considered as Natural Affection. However if the pain is associated with a heart attack, then the sensory reaction may be quite animated and extreme. This is defined as Emotion. People can identify with what is of consequence
to others or to animals and such, and thus exhibit emotion when the consequence does not directly relate to them.
The theory presented here is that differences of what and how, the individual defines Consequential Value, can determine the sensory and emotional make-up of the individual called the Sensory Response System. Associative attributes derive from sensory opposites and degrees in between, such as hot, warm and cold. These sensory distinctions dictate to the individual sensory values about a subject and how it may be treated.
The ordinary state of sensory experience is Natural Affection, as the
correspondence between the sensory apparatus and the environment, or
various elements of itself. When these states are in correspondence and
harmony like a pleasant air temperature, good health or satisfied appetites,
the sensory experience is pleasant and satisfactory. When these states are
disharmonious, the sensory experience is unpleasant and unsatisfactory.
Sensations and feelings are naturally the perception of opposite qualities
and conditions, from sweet to sour, hard and soft, cold and hot, or pleasure
and pain. People are conditioned to specific values, by the association of
feelings with qualities and conditions, such as hell may be associated with feelings of fire and torment, heaven with perfect sensory attributes, or people
may be demonized by associations of evil characterized by ugly, deformed, depraved and other dark depictions and characterizations.
In terms of Association, there are two types which can determine the sensory response termed
Correspondent and Disconjunctive Association. Correspondent Association is wherein any given association represents fairly accurately the origin and original perception and experience. If the experience of fire as associations, remains accurate and limited to real and actual experience with the experience of fire one has had, this is termed Correspondent Association.
