HUMAN SENSORY APPARATUS
Emotion is distinguished from what is
termed Natural affection.
The Human Sensory Apparatus is the vehicle of all human sensation both
as exterior and interior to the body, such as the sight of a tree or the feeling
of a pain in the stomach. The sensory apparatus experiences sensation in
every waking moment. This is from the smell of the air, the feeling of the water temperature as when taking a shower, or always present background sounds.
The individual does not react or notice most of these sensations. All of reality,
as that which is within the sphere of the individual's perception, is registered
by the person's sensory system. The difference between what the individual responds to or the type and intensity of response, is said to be the distinction between Natural Affection and Emotion. The response is determined by
Association, as what specific association the memory attaches to any given present sensation. People go to watch auto races in which there are car crashes, and the spectators may enjoy the spectacle of the crash itself. When the cars and drivers have no particular consequence for the spectator, and wherein the activity of the race produces heightened sensory reaction which is primarily the noise, sights, smells and
feeling of speed, this is Natural Affection. However if the individual were to
own a car in the race, or a driver were a relative or a friend, such that there
were Consequential Value involved, then the character of the sensory
response to any crashes might be very different, more enhanced and
involved. This is called Emotion.
Consequential Values affect sensory response and the way the individual
responds in a sensory way to reality in general. The concept of the Sensory
Response System describes what is called two different types of response mechanisms, based upon the perspective of how Consequential Value is
defined and what is of consequence to the individual , which corresponds
the conceptual distinctions which derive from the Bipolar Divergence.
Association affects the sensory response to sensation as recognition,
identification and context. Association is classified as two fundamental types
which are termed
Correspondent and Disconjunctive Association. Correspondent Association represents the fairly accurate portrayal of remembered experience wherein Disconjunctive Association is the alteration of association by such things as exaggeration, faulty memory or the influence of others.
