would it be too bold to imagine that you’re mad at me…

and hiding it?? some new stuff i am looking into for the emotional future project: there’s an expert on emotions named paul ekman… a psychologist… who has been publishing books on emotions for fifty plus years. he lives out in northern california and works with his daughter, dr. eve ekman. (that’s a psychological experiment in itself if you ask me.) the doctors ekman have developed…

a feelings machine

What are you feeling? Can you locate the feeling in your body? Can you locate your body? Can you locate a doctor who can locate your body? If you don’t like doctors, try a lover. If you don’t want a lover, perhaps a personal trainer. To host a feeling in my body. The lost art. To find the feeling, identify it, hang out with it,…

crackpot or cracked pot

i’ve always suspected the feeling comes first but where does it come from? a feeling comes. there are no words for this feeling and really, let’s stop with the words for feelings. WORDS ARE NOT UP TO THE TASK better to use gods let’s start with one word for a feeling: love think how many feelings that has to cover let’s try another: fear are…

“a coldblooded and factual account of your last sixty trillion years”

I was disappointed, unsettled, and even ashamed that my curiosity and research around emotional entities led me to L. Ron Hubbard. L Ron Hubbard, for those who don’t know, is the founder of Scientology. Like Charles Manson, he is dead. Or more accurately, he has “left his body.” But unlike Charles Manson, Hubbard’s cult lives on and has bought up a shit-ton of real estate in…

daddy issues

(just a reminder that i am making myself the subject of this experiment. i therefore speak as a fictional character, the subject “elizabeth.” and also, i am reporting all this as the scientist in the white coat, Dr.T.) What did I do? Scrambled for connection and validation Was constantly guessing… is this love or is this hate? Is he nice or mean? Seduced and begged…

a buffet of marital bickering with bloody hands

i “live tweeted” macbeth next up: Othello tweets: goal. identify feelings. looking at shakespeare as a template for the reporting of human emotion. the theory i am playing with has to do with feelings as entities that are evolving. that feelings are not unlike viruses or bacteria. and stories, literature, movies. these things are human feelings trying to understand themselves. through their human hosts. how…

i was a jerk to myself until now

  In the past, I distracted myself… or tormented myself…enslaved myself? with the fantasy, illusion, delusion, obsession that I could get other people to do for me what me what I could only do for myself. … the simple gift of paying attention to my feelings, showing up for my deep self, and offering love and validation to myself. Simple, not easy. In fact, the…

tantrums are messages from outer space

I’ve been reading, or trying to read, this collection of lectures by the physicist Richard Feynman. theoretical physicists spend a lot of time making things up. they test these ideas later to see if their theories actually hold. this is the way experimenting works in science. Feynman made a lot of shit up and some of it turned out to be true. obviously the leaders…

they get bombed

“The hard sphere,” declared the British physicist, Sir James Jeans, “has always a definite position in space; the electron apparently has not. A hard sphere takes up a very definite amount of room, an electron—well, it is probably as meaningless to discuss how much room an electron takes up as it is to discuss how much room a fear, an anxiety, or an uncertainty takes…

emotional states

  We’re working with ideas and theories that have built up like rock and sand, mountain and steppe over millions of years. We’re dealing with the evolution of ideas, emotions, and attitudes. The question is: how much can one person affect their own development in a world of fixed ideas and strict labeling? This is love, for example. Either get with it or give up…

refused to love her

notes on fear, fight or flight maybe I turned against myself (hypothalamus stimulates action) maybe the selfishness and self-seeking have been a form of isolation (pituitary gland releases hormones) did I back down as soon as there was conflict? (adrenal glands release epinephrine so your heart contracts, beats more strongly, beats faster) was i operating as an island? (blood pressure rises) often have trouble identifying…
