Emotional Waves, and Localization


This theory of brain waves touches on the fact that delta waves are of a lesser frequency than beta waves. These waves are electrical stimulation, which may lead to more work depending on the intensity/frequency. Since delta is a wave with lesser frequency and equals sleep, and beta is a higher frequency and equals activity, it is plausible that higher frequencies equal: Increased motor activity, and increase in the sensation of the electrical field of mental human emotion. 

1) Beta emited when we are consciously alert, or we feel agitated, tense, afraid, with frequencies ranging from 13 to 60 pulses per second in the Hertz scale.

 2) Alpha when we are in a state of physical and mental relaxation, although aware of what is happening around us, its frequency are around 7 to 13 pulses per second.

 3) Theta more or less 4 to 7 pulses, it is a state of somnolence with reduced consciousness.

 4) Delta when there is unconsciousness, deep sleep or catalepsy, emitting between 0.1 and 4 cycles per second.

Fear = Threat/Loss of a positive/rejection

The greater the fear, the greater the stimulation meanings high levels of amygdala activity and beta frequencies. Through cognitive neuroscience research  scientists can come up with a ratio between flight-fight and threat. When fear is at a certain intensity fighting is ineffective and flight is effective.

There is also a chemical release of adrenaline that determines flight or fight. The more intense either flight of fight the more adrenaline that is consumed or binded to organs as to increase their stimulation.

The part of the brain and the chemicals that instigate arousal of a flight-fight response are required for avoiding predators or anything that would pose a threat to survival.

Greater fear, means a reduction of frequency in the pleasure centers of the brain.

Love = Care/Pleasure/(self-acceptance/other-acceptance),

Increase electrical frequency, as well as an increase in dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin, occur in all stages of lust/attraction/attachment. f(e) (d+s+o).

Another important chemical in continue attachment with a person, place, thing, or phenomena, is in the existence of vassopressin.

"When male prairie voles were given a drug that suppresses the effect of vasopressin, the bond with their partner deteriorated immediately as they lost their devotion and failed to protect their partner from new suitors."

All mental activity is seen in the phenomena world as moving towards attachment or into the detached. All movement of the physical body, is really an increase and decrease of matter and the distances between them. The biological and emotional fields of existence structure human beings to be aware of threat and care, friend and foe. By avoiding death, and obtaining survival, life continues on.

Two of the overactivities of love and fear are:
1) PTSD (post-traumatic-stress-disorder) -- There should be a chemical analysis as well as an emg analysis of brains that have undergone highly active fear situations. In this way, the line between normal reactions and stressed reactions might be found, and there might be a consideration of what chemicals to increase or brain areas to stimulate under certain stimuli to reduce stress reaction.

2) Obsession, co-dependence, learned helplessness, depression -- A higher rate of depression occurs, after having lost someone.  The brain lowers its stimulation of positive emotion, and also increases its negative emotion in realization that the a positive has been lost. When something is potentially going to be lost, such a mate, obsession may take place, and the person may become more and more manipulative to ensure they do not loss their mate. It is a kind of relationship obsession that results from the fear of loss, and the desire for love.

Co-dependence can appear in two possible ways:
1. Two people in a relationship, and one of them doesn't invest their part into the financial structure of their needs acquisition.
2. Two people break up, and the one can not depend on their own earnings to pay for their bills. This might also be called dependency-abandonment.

What is the distinction between grief and fear?

The idea of no control over the loss, results in the idea of sadness rather than in fear. Fear is a response that manipulates the circumstances to potentially avoid sadness, where as sadness itself is to have already lost a positive and to face it afterwards. Fear might be thought of as anticipatory, where as sadness is an immediate emotion.
