Divine Solution Bias/Practice

Divine solution bias -- Is observed as: The forfeiting of intelligence of self-initiated solutions to human suffering, substantiated by the idea of God being intelligently capable of decreasing human suffering or increasing human well-being.

The initial phase into the Divine Solution Practice, is started in a behavior of praying.

Examples: I pray for world peace. I pray that my brother will not die of cancer.

Theoretically, the divine solution practice, is a response to insecurities or notion of powerlessness to resolve or better the condition of self or other.

This praying can become a positive reinforcement based on

1. By fulfillment - fulfillment of the initial desire in the prayer.

2. By "goodness" of the fulfillment - Obtaining a personal need vs. fulfillment of many more.

3. Social Bias - A result of social reinforcement (number of people agreeing to pray).

This bias manifests itself as a kind of inner power, as in the "Power to do miracles" which is a result of divine solution practice.

Praying itself might be said to create miracles, or to empower the person to overrule the natural order of things. I have observed this many times, the most power-lending coming from a woman who stood in front of a tornado and commanded that god take it away. Its amazing how strongly reinforced these people can be, to thinking of divine power being greater than some of nature's largest threats.

The four year state focus plan (4spf)

1. Focus Initiative - During the four year term of the president, every month is devoted to a single state where funds are spent to improve infrastructure and quality of life.

2. Better-to-worse clause - The plan starts with the most decrepit states and works toward the least. Since there are 50 states and only 48 months in fours year, the president works on the 2 best first, and then enters into the 4sfp. This is good, because than the monarch/representive knows what a good state is and can use it as a touchstone for similar state improvements. It is also good because the president just coming into office, will have it much easier getting adjusted, since the most advanced societies demand little federal financing.

3. 4Sfp advisory – members of the presidential committee that are paid to sit through all proposals of the current state in focus. A machine can sort through the mail if each state has a bar-code that is stamped
on the mail, fax, or electronic mail.

After machine sorting a human adviser, grades the importance of the state's proposal for improvement. Each proposal being separate from others are not explicitly related. Each adviser can grade the proposals and then get sorted into:

1. High focus
2. Average focus
3. Below average focus
4. Trivial.

Every proposal may be altered. Advisers or the president may question and help the state alter any proposal. 4Spf is done for the president so he/she can work on those deficiencies the quickest, and foremost.

The 4spf plan, may be put into any of the other systems of survival, and in no way is by any concrete law, only dependent on neo-socialism existing. The plan is for national stabilization of well-being. The tantamount results that should be worked toward under neo-socialism, or 4spf are: Free health care, and increasing investment into medical science. Free education, and repairing or improvement of all schools. Infinite funds, for the monarch/Representative to use to improve quality of cities. Increase of free energy and money invested into it, and thereby increase in jobs.

Why can't the state government delve into the federal funds as a primary source with no inhibition?

In America there are 50 states, and thus 100 hands. Meaning that each state has a its own representive, and in neosocialism they can invest taxes or federal funds within their own state. That is too many in the pot at once. Order of government finances takes a head of nation, and a congress voting committee. This stops potential misuse of funds in its tracks. Not all politicians have the citizens best interests in mind, in fact few do. That's why it is important to know your monarch can be trusted and s altruistically pragmatic. Knowing this about your democratic appointed state Representatives is key.

Any of the methodologies of neosocialism can be conjoined with any other methodologies, as long as they bring about lasting beneficial effects, that are socialistic in nature. It may, even be possible to use neosocialism as transitional method into another economic system.

The danger of the agenda of the socialists is in "survival of the most caring." This is very harmful, compared to the beneficial slogan of the capitalists, “survival of the most fit.” The socialist slogan, does not eliminate survival of the the intelligent. The idea of socialism is to make every one a usable figure within the economic system, and not to create competitions which weaken other companies, or people, dramatically so.

A capitalist society is driven toward competitions, in Being fit, means being adapted to. Being adapted to system with faulty methodology to obtain desirable results, is ignorant adaptation. One should question what they should adapt themselves to, and what they should be maladjusted to.

Neosocialism is the method of investing in or taxing for social organizations, or workers, that are working towards the survival of all people, under the equality of their nature, determined by upkeep of the health, care, and functionality of their bodies and minds.

Computational Neurology

A Partial Mathematical and Conceptual theory




1. Nodes (soma), connections, associations (dendrites and axons).

The below image depicts convergence and divergence, a fundamental process occuring in neurons, their nodes and their connections.




This image is hardly any different than the process that is going on in the brain. Information is stored with in the neurons, and than it is either distributed/scattered outward or inward.

Sensory information is an input, where as imagination can be both output and input, in areas of the brain.

A visual out put of a candle, mentally, can be the cause the output of the word candle. So we see there is information being output from the visual cortex into the audio cortex.

The sound association with the visual information depends on what is called word-to-visual association frequency. The association frequency strengthens a link between the two nodes, word(s) and visual(s).

Association laws:
A) Sound-visual association : λS + Vi = sSa : Frequency of sound with visual information equals strength of sound association.
B) Visual-visual association : λVstimuli = sVa : Frequency of visual input equals strength of visual association (convergence of input with output).

From input and out put we realize there are signals going out and signals coming in. Input signals is a stimuli that means (equates to) there are efferent nerves carrying signal to away from a soma.

Connection Laws:
A) (O<)n/μ = ξ-ζn : Number of outputs per node equals number of potential efferent unactive neuron connections (ζ).
B) (I>)n/μ = α-ζn : Number of inputs per node equals number of potential afferent neuron connections.

Activation law:
A) s(stimuli+ass) = pἄ Association strength equals probability of activation.

2. Reductionism
Every node may contain what is called a category. So a node of "a candle" will be a category (node), than we can use gestalt psychology to understand that every node can have other nodes, which equate to the parts of the thing. The brain has a whole (whole nodes) which can than form a connection with its parts (part nodes).

A thought experiment for this is, a candle stick. It consists of a candle holder, candle stick, and wick. This is the process as described above.

Structuralism  laws:
A) W = nP, whole equals number of parts.
B) W+(c) = nP, the wholes connections are equal to the number of parts. This being true in the part-reductionism, as a function.
C) nῥ. = P or W, properties (ῥ) can equal part or whole.

Properties : A) Phenomenal properties are, color, shape, velocity, measurement/size (angles/outlines), state (Ex: liquid, fear), texture (feels like), part of whole, language, aroma, temperature, and pleasure/pain & emotional value, need, desire, nutritional value/health value. So in this we get that each thing can be viewed with 15 different translations, and that there is a one in 15translations possible in temporal order of consciousness of properties.

T = 1:15p thought of thing equals a particular property of a whole.

Each property must have a gate-node, an inner opening of neuronetworks that allows for input of information and detects according to its gate/receptor (color receptors, size receptors).

Reducing things to their 15 particulars, having 0 or a number of different features (n), is total phenomenal-property level reductionism. When a thing is said to have 0 features, than there is another property which exists that can be added on into the system of recognition (input of stimulation, output of idea), or it factually consists of no information for the receptors.

Property reductionism: 
15:14p = Total (Ppreduction), in this we can also know that a thing is equal to its parts, or number of mental reactions, which can increase the total number of outcomes in property reductionism (structuralism).

*I do not know if this is all the properties an intelligence can detect (as in complexity which might equal a degree of the number of parts of a thing).

If we imagine, there are 15 total properties possible to extract or input into an idea of thing. When the thing is recepted, and it is lacking properties, it will be thought of as the whole thing. These properties can be have subproperties, as in the property color being red, as in the color temperature having a specific rough measurement.

There is a difference between extraction of properties and imputation of properties.

Linguistic programming, for reductionism - We understand that all things have physical properties, that can be expressed through a word, as in an adjective. The whole of the thing, can be expressed in the form of a noun, or a adjective noun conjunction (baked bread, red car, simple man).

Structuralism Node Laws:
A) nP = nμ or nC The number of properties of a thing, equates to the number of nodes, and gives us the number of neuron connections necessary (not always visible) to account for the cohesion of the whole.
B) nP(W) = -ζn number of properties of a thing, in the inactivate state.
C) λPartAss(W) = W Property association frequency (property of x, equals color y, therefore x is z) equals the probability of the thing being thought of as a whole. This equates to the idea that an extraction of a property consciously is all that is require to identify a thing at whole.

This algorithm as a thought function can have an error margin, that can be reduced with a total parts or properties reduction to equate to whole thing. This is also what is called the Induction problem, where a universal is taken to describe or be a property of all x's, when it is only true that all x's have a particular distribution of the property (as in, all people are mean, therefore x will be mean). The particular solves the problem of universal induction.

3. Functionalism

A things function is equal to the number results that can occur for it.

This brings us to a simple equation that everything can have an end, and that the number of ends it can be thought to have can take up end-nodes. Numerous end-nodes, create a sequence of events, which is what is probably going on with even the most minute actions.

Functionalism Laws:
A) E of x = nC : ends of x equal number of connections possible.
B) Frequency of e of x = pἄ
C) Thought of e of x = pἄ
D) As the number of ends is decreased in a t1 or decision-state, the ends take on a greater probability of activation.

Conscious-threshold :
The existence of being aware must exist as a threshold frequency, that can be determined through calculations. The lower frequencies, that are making things happen in the body, or to the body, can cross over the conscious-threashold. Therefore, states of the body must exist in a steady stay activation, which can be sensed when their activation is interrupted and when that interruption crosses over the conscious-threshold.

4. Neurogenesis

Since we know that ever object can be observed in its, properties, parts, and functions, we than realize that neurogenesis CAN take place when any novel property, part, of function is input. If there is no neurogenesis upon a novel end, property, or part-whoe, than there is a connections with previously existing information nodes. Similar functions, properties, and parts, only cause the activity of connections and nodes that are already in place.

5. Pain/pleasure

There most be a pain and pleasure threshold, which exists, where signals are activated to pleasure or pain centers, and the state can be stimulated into excitement by a corresponding threshold. Since each part of the body can be triggered into pain or pleasure, than there must be as many neuron clusters to account for the number of input-sources.

6. Expectation

Expectation is equate to association, meaning we expect things to be the way they are because of are frequency with the stimuli that is presented in the environment. When it comes to expecting the future, there is a greater equation for this kind of convergent thinking mechanism.

Expectation is also equate to the ends of a thing in thinking of them, and the strength or likelihood of the expectation depends on its activation.

__
Interference problem: Imagination can interfere with the reductionism of a thing, and cause the idea to take on properties or functions not contained in the observed thing. For accurate or semi-accurate internal recognition to take place, the output of non-existing properties in the input-source, must be inhibited.

Identification of Unknown -
1. A thing contains a property that has no primed gate. (No-priming)
2. There is no gate or receptor for the information. (No receptor)
3. A thing is observed and a property of it can not be receptive. (Limited field of property-sense)
4. There is no temporal cohesion between cause and effect (no temporal gates or connections).
5. A thing is observed and the end or cause of it can not be receptive. (Limited cause-sense, limited effect-sense).
6. The properties or functions of the thing are imperceptible because of size and limited observation (imperceptibility_ as in atomic makeup).
7. No cc-connections between things or ideas (no contrast-compartive connections made between two or more things).

Truth, proposition, and reasoning

Causation and Consciousness
Everything happens in a series of events. A series is a conjunction of causes and effects. All reasons are causes and/or effects. We can think that A happens for reasons (pos. reasons), or A doesn't happen for reasons (neg. reasons). We can also make choices based on conscious reasons or purposes to do things, (sufficient reasons) or the lack of reasons/purposes (insufficient reasons). 

We are cause and effect beings, purpose driven. Every human action, every human behavior has a reason for occurring. We find these causes or effects by asking why? If we are to have a logic that is adequate for speaking about causes and effects we need to assign a distinct question to each (cause and effect). Why is the general question and we can divide it into two questions, “what for,” (effect i.e. x happens for y) “because” (cause i.e. y comes from x)”. Sentences are time differentiated by what time order they happen in. 

For: presents a reason, cause or effect ("He is gambling with his health, for he has been smoking far too long.")
So: presents a consequence ("He gambled well last night, so he smoked a cigar to celebrate.")
One can think of the reasons/purposes or lack of reasons/purposes before they make a choice.
Intentional Reasoning

Intention starts by having a desire for something. One’s desire can become the cause of an event. We can desire “for” “to” “because” and “so as to”. The event begins with the desire. A desire can be in the positive or negative, and be used as a positive or negative reason to do something. Aversion to do x is a negative reason to do x, desire to do x is a positive reason to do x. A selection of reasons takes place when the “I” “does” x “for” y. Conscious-awareness of reasons for doing something start by asking “why?” A desire for something is not the same thing as an Intentional selection. We can select desires and reasons together to form a single intentionality. 

:I desire to eat, because the food is good and I am hungry. 

The above sentence lists three reasons for doing something, namely eating. We can come up with actions “to do” (x) and desire or not desire to do them (-,+). Negative reasons are the same thing as a negative desire – aversion. Positive reasons are the same thing as positive desire – attraction. 

Positive reasons (I will because x) will strengthen the probability of the choice. Negative reasons (I won't because x) weaken the probability of the choice. 

Not doing something, makes the action not occur, and doing something makes the action occur. 

When desires correspond to reality, it is a positive-desire-correspondence (PDC) when desires don’t correspond to reality it’s a negative-desire correspondence (NDC). For desire to correspond to reality, for a PDC to exist, one must act to fulfill the desire’s ends. If I want to see the ocean, I must be in "seeing distance" of the ocean. If I don’t want to see the ocean and see it anyways this is an example of NDC. If I see the ocean and don’t want to see it so look away from the ocean, this is an example of PDC. PDC can exist when there is aversion to ends, as long as the ends are not wanted.

Truth

Truth is correspondence. A tree has positive existence the absence of the tree has negative existence. “Is” is positive, “isn't” is negative. There must be a connection between sentence reality and existent reality for there to be a correspondence.

P.statement & p.existence = (positive correspondence). Sense tree → “There is a tree.”
P. statement & N.existence = (negative correspondence). “There is a tree”. → sense no tree.
N. statement with a N. Existence = (positive correspondence). “There is no tree,” → no sense of tree.
A N. Statement with a positive existence = N. correspondence. “There is no tree,”à Tree sensed.

A statement of experience indicates
Position – Near the sofa
Movement/use – Drink, to Vegas.
Conjunction – B follows A.
Comparison – B is like x, x isn't like B
Relation – Mother, brother, friend, husband.
Quality – smooth, soft, color
Quantity – large, small, numbers.
Entity – Her, him, them.
Value – good, better, best.
Time – o'clock, seconds, hours, etc..
Questions about experience:
Where – position
What – entity, statement
When – time
Why – conjunction (past, present or present, future).
How – use/movement
Who – entities

Each can contain a positive or negative statement. Here is a sentence containing all the variables of experience: “Before going to work the mother is driving to the store to pick up a carton of white grade A eggs, instead of the brown eggs which are worse.”

A proposition is an idea seeking reality. “I want to see my father.” To actuate the proposition the intention must have positive correspondence. 

All desires seek positive correspondence but can have negative correspondence (“I don't want to see my father ever again”, neg.statement → father appears → statement has negative correspondence). 

A successful actuation of desire requires a positive correspondence. A failed actuation of a desire requires a negative correspondence.

The truth is when idea corresponds with the world. Each man is diverse in his ideas, each man is his own truth

In a Future

I will quickly organize, the available features of civilization that can undergo advancement or transformation. This list is not a strict predication of features of future civilizations, and doesn't elaborate on every feature to the extent which it exists in the potential world.

List of features: Computers, Health, Homes, Internal Home Structure, Clothes, Growth & Harvesting, Manufacturers, and Markets, Education, Learning Devices, Transportation, Game systems and Games, Sport and real world competitions, Television.

I start by introducing computers. Computers can be mediums for the production of all commodities, can create novel forms of education, and can strengthen human immunity, to name a few usages of computers. In all, I would say a computer can be integrated into any system, as a computer is in general a manipulating factor that can cause a system to behavior differently, even as to benefit life, and create alternative realities. Hereafter I am planning to remark on computers integration with some of the other factors of human civilizations.

At first we see computers that are very large in size, than they beget processors of smaller and smaller sizes. We can expect that this will continue to happen, till scientists affirm an absolute threshold for size that cannot be surpassed, by technicians. This capacity for processors to be microscopic, permits for average size intelligence to come in small compact designs. These computers can be put into the mind, into the immune system, even into an organ, and in doing so change how the body functions, substituting for example cellular components, and therefore how consciousness experiences and lives in reality.

Another promise for computers, along with size, is control via brain-wave interface. Brain wave interface with allow a person to communicate with any form of computer, that increases mobility, that cooks and cleans, that designs a home. In a future, we will have the ability to order our homes, made of recyclable materials, and design them as permitted by our technology. The same goes for cars. This is the message to the cooperation and out there and the faster it spread the faster the results of its effects, we no longer require the existence of countless number of manufactures, we can have preconceived demands, balanced by computers, for supplies mutable by our technology as desired by individual minds. We can decrease manufactures, and increase commodity malleability. Like manufactures can merge. When this happens, the way homes are design, the way cars are designed, will fit personal preference. No more makes and models, in this paradigm, just unique designs custom built, as our resources and technology permits. Imagine, in one future, there is the possibility of having all the designs we can fathom being controlled by brain-waves.

If that's not amusing enough, there is a future that exists with the convergence of brain-wave technology, computers, and education, that permits for the existence of learning just by thinking. We no longer require teachers, and if we have them in the future, it will be up to us. In a future, we will learn at a rapid pace. No more staying in school and going through the grade system at a slow pace, eventually such can be done away with altogether. When humans can dw information right into their brains using computers, the learning process will have sped up by millions of times its currents speed.

To get into something else more liberating, is the BWI integrated with virtual realities. What we live with now is low 2d quality imaging, on screens, and most video games don't let you design your avatar to extremes, but in a future, 3 imaging, even deep immersion, along with greater designer options, all being optimal forms of entertaining. Being able to imagine anything and have it appear on a screen and than in 3d imagining is possible, if not only conceivable.

I claim that the most entertaining forms of games are those that work in leveling, in ranks, or in achievements. Idleness is boredom's birth, progressiveness motion's birth. Immediate completion is not fun in the long run. This is a cue for all the designers out there.

There is a future where there is something built, a little something beyond cyborg, robots that have super intelligence, when they emerge there is no telling all the possibilities that will arise. Their pursuits can be replication and creation of reality. These will be fundamental ideologies that they might gear themselves with. When we compare the human needs to a robots needs, we soon realize that they don't need exactly the same things as human beings do. They need less resources to continue building themselves to stop decay, they need less energy to operate on, as possible feature, they need not wake or sleep, and can do so as desired, making space-travel all the easier.

There once was a cold war, caused by Weapons of Mass Destruction, now we face a new threat when it comes to robotics, minds of mass destruction, technologies of mass destruction. Our human progeny depends on the beneficence of the minds and technology we have and we will design, even become.

If we do not build systems to aid in our own survival, they are either indifferent or built for our own demise. We sense these kind of things in our environments, and are able to live with minimization of threats, and the existence of that which keeps the system of life it self functional, operational. What the libido, or the will to survive, is trying to do is reach a state of perfection, that is there is Platonic or universal consequence of being a true immortal. It doesn't have to be reached, but we can imagine that human beings as they are now, are far off from this achievement of eternal form with eternal individualized-self-identity.

The future is where our freedom lays.

Will within world

The desire for engagement with the world manifests personal being, and the lack of desire, or aversion towards the world, collapses being.

One can desire for an end, or the lack of desire for the end. In this we see that we have two choices, either to manifest the end or not to manifest the end.

The desire for, may have desire linked to it. Desire for, is its own set, where as desire for desire for, is another set.

Fundamental survivalistic desires, are innate, in that they prime the will with desire for things in the world, for engagement with the world, as to fulfill their ends, which is survival of the organism. These FSD, might also be called rational or self-interested desires. The ends or means that lead to desires, which are not fundamental are mutated forms of attaining being-in-its-end.

These desires for particular engagement exist as in accord with the supplies within the economy to instigate more primary desires. Cars, fulfill the primary desire of mobility, but this end is not fundamental in that it isn't required for mobility; rather the structure of the body, that makes mobility possible, is the direct metaphysical or structural nature of desire made manifest. Legs are for the desire to be mobile, as the desire to be mobile is to have legs, as a fundamental relation between desire and engagement. With cars, being a world mutation (rather than a body mutation), we might also see production or economic machines in consequence of a secondary desire or fulfillment. Examples: A snow plow for clearing the roads of snow, so people can drive.

The fundamental desires, are in accord with the nature of the structure of the organism. The impulses which determine the movement of the organism, and its engagement with the world, are visible at a physiological level, and are the contribution of bodily chemical reactions. Not only do the fundamental desires instigate movement of the body, but they are for the material ends which exist in the world, that satisfy them, that is trigger the desire, and than attenuate it with its existence in a present, in some cases.

Secondary desires and secondary ends, are mutated forms of primary desires and primary fulfillment. When we think of the human form, and its desires, we can imagine the confines of the being and its reactions with the world. Many of the reactions which take place for the human organism, correspond with the ontology, of emotion (from comfort to disdain), pain/pleasure, and logic, as some examples. The freedom of the individual organism, depends on its reactions with the world,; the desires it has and the satisfiers that exist to allow for the impulse to be satisfied.

These, might be considered to be a part of the biological mechanisms of the organism. Every living thing might be considered to have organized chemical reactions, for engagement with the world, which either support or degenerate their existence.

The confinements of human will, that is as a product of a biological mechanism, is either to fulfill survivalist impulses, to fulfill secondary desires, or to exist in a state of emotionality. When desires of the organism are fulfilled, it will either benefit, detriment, change the emotionality of the human organism, or increase memory or consciousness. To categorize and write on some, there is rationality, emotionality, behavior, knowledge, judgment, within which human beings make their decisions, through physical movements of their body, engaged with the world, its objects, and its beings.

The existence of a choice is a battle between the intensity of the dualistic impulses of aversion and attraction. If we create dichotomy of the choices we can make we can form a gradient system, wherein we can measure the probability or value of the impulses.

Rationality - Is defined as a proporition between harm and care, or pleasure and pain. If pleasure is subjective, than so is rationality, but we do know that some pain, and pleasure, can either be agreed upon, or it can be a consistently identified value. With a gradient, we would see behaviors that fell into the most harm, as in extinction of all life on earth, to the most possible highest "good" being the care or well-being of the most amount of beings, with a minimal amount of caused harm.

Emotionality - Can be defined within the confines of categorized emotions. Emotional choices, rather than rational choices, do not consider or are not determined by the rational value of their ends, alone, rather they determined by the feelings invested into the desires or the ends of those desires. Sometimes, these attachments have unconsciousness processes which create attachment, and other times the emotionality of a world relation, can be brought into consciousness. These two therefore, can be thought of in a spectrum, in how conscious one is of their emotionality behind their decisions. When a person describes their choice, as brought on by emotion, they will use words like "because of I want to be happy" or "because I think this will make me happy" or, something of the sort of "my mother was happy in the life, and so I will be as well, therefore, I will make this choice." In any registration of the emotionality, which may conceded with rationality, there is some awareness of what feelings are being used as impulses, in their intensity for the existence of the end of the choice.

Consciousness and the acquirement of skill - A person can venture into a field or topic that exists with its own ontology, and they might be able to perform the processes necessary to become well-informed or able to engage with that environment in way that might be judged as excellent, in contrast/comparison to others which bring about other forms of judgment.

Behavior and Judgment - In almost anything that is done, there is the possibility of two ends existing, creating a spectrum of better or worse. With every performance there is an end which has an accuracy. Every aim has a target, every target has a point of highest accuracy. This can be observed: in teaching children to pour their own liquid, in teaching children to be economical and motivated, in teaching children to answer the correct or accurate answers to applied formulas, in the assessment of a employee under a boss, who defines the ends of "good" and "bad" work performance, even in the existence of playing the correct notes in the corrects sequence on a piano.

The existence of "normal" and "healthy" are highly turned into judging the self, as I have observed, normally. The world can be divided up into the sick and the well, the functional and dysfunctional, or any contrasting system of being. Our observations or knowledge of such dichotomies, are pertinent in our identification with the ontology of a thing, and our judgments of its existence.

Had a mind singularly observed people walking on all fours, having seen the same feet be used in upright walking, would be considered abnormal, whereas the person who walks on all fours, and has singularly seen this performance, will judge those whom do walk on all fours, as abnormal. Therefore, our ideas of normality, are, in one sense, our observations of the frequency and regularity of human behavior, and the structural functions of human beings. This idea plays a role in our ideas of culture, economy, religion, and tradition.

These factors, can exist in particular by themselves, or they may be interconnected. The point of this entire expose, is to get at the question of freedom, and whether it exists or are we determined by a chain of cause and effect. We see that the effects of our actions can be chosen, and that there particular effects of particular desires. For example, the desire for happiness, is not the desire for some other kind of mental state, or the desire for food, is not the desire to die (these are particulars, wherein variables might be added as to produce differing effects from the same causes). So, we know that self is determined by desire, which is cause, and consequence which is effect, and these desires and effects work within the confines of the natural world, as any naturalistic would conclude. By this, we know that our internal reactions with external reactions define our reality, and give us the aptitude to be as we react. The desire for food is a reaction (rationality), the desire for a BMW is a reaction (excess self-interest/excessive rationality), the desire to be happy with someone is a reaction (emotionality), the liking of someone's work is a reaction (judgment), the acquisition of information concerning the existence of any thing is a reaction (consciousness), the acquisition of skill by repetition and ends marked accurate are reactions (behavior.judgment). Within the spectrum and ontology of these consequences, there is more or less, and aversion and attraction to any of the values, is potential.

I think there are:
1. Common human desires - as in any desires that fulfill homeostasis, and can be observed to fulfill survival for a wide population,

2. Personally defined desires - as in the desire for a "higher" value product, than the essential (rationality), or as in the desire to be dead rather than alive, or even the desire for blue rather than gray (judgment). PDI's may be in the interest of the organism continued existence, or may not be, where as common interests, are most frequently favorable. Our emotionality with unfavorable or harmful common desires, is usually aversive, as is the emotional association (atrocity) to societies and their politicians that generated racial partiality to survival.

Emotion as Judgment

Can emotion be correct?

We can use a formula:
1. X will make me happy.
2. X made me happy
3. Therefore the emotional judgment of x, is true.

Consequentially, as a predication, emotional predications can be true.

However, there is the possibility of person "a" feeling conversely about something.

We can use a formula for this understanding:
1. X will either make "a" or "b" happy or sad,
2. X makes "a" happy,
3. X makes "b" sad,

What then of emotional judgment?

Emotional judgment can exist or not exist, making either it subjectively "true" (actual), however if we look at the above example we see that with differing emotional judgment there is no "objective" or "universality" to SOME emotional judgments.

 This doesn't seem to explain much, other than A) Emotional judgment (stimuli>feeling) can either have some objectivity (widely agreed upon) or B) be subjective (unique for the individual).

 We can find out how objective an emotional judgment is, based on the existence of experimentation or survey. As in : (A) If your Mother hits routinely you will you be happy, angry, or sad about that? I would think this is a human objectivity, if people agreed to one or a set of emotional reaction.

We can think of subjective emotional judgment as in the circumstance : (B) X occurs, person a reacts with y, person B doesn't react. Particularly, as in the case of finding out your father has died, were you may feel intense sadness, but a stranger who finds this out will not react with that same emotional reaction.

EDIT:

Instead of thinking of emotional reactions as objective, it would be more precise to think of them as being normal/abnormal.
