Emotions are the elementary forces of the mind
by Eva Deli
The book, ‘The Science of Consciousness’ (published in June 2015), authored by Eva Deli considers the mind a physical system, and an elementary fermion, which interacts through elementary forces, called emotions. Birds and mammals have complex neural organization, which allows the formation of emotions, the basis of the mind’s homeostatic regulation. Emotions are the tools of survival; with them dangers can be avoided or overcome, and opportunities can be found. Animals with more sophisticated emotions appear later in evolution, and they exhibit great evolutionary advantages. Emotions allow them to be warm blooded, form the mysterious world of consciousness and exhibit love to raise their young.
The elementary forces of the mind are the emotional equivalents of gravity, electromagnetism, and the weak as well as the strong nuclear forces, which permit for the first time real classification of emotions. The laws of Newton and the laws of thermodynamics apply for material systems over space, but govern emotional interactions over time, thus the mind is a temporal fermion. Humans and even mammals exhibit hysteresis-like behavior, interference, entanglement, and the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
The Pauli exclusion principle leads to territorial needs, and human decision making can be best described by quantum probability. The brain always recovers its energy neutral state, the default mode network, which turns it into a quantum system. Recognizing the mind as a temporal fermion can open the book on animal and human behavior and lead to better understanding of social and physiological problems, possible cure of mental diseases, and better animal welfare.
