Good and bad are actual properties (i.e. forces)

    Since our positive emotions allow us to experience the good qualities of life while our negative emotions allow us to experience the bad qualities of life, then our positive emotions are literally a force of goodness flowing through us while our negative emotions are literally a force of badness flowing through us. It's, in a way, no different than a positive or negative charge. Therefore, all famous artists and composers who have used their depression and misery as an inspiration for their art weren't living any sort of good life at all.

    They did not have the force of light (i.e. goodness) flowing through them. In a purely naturalistic universe, it would be the force of goodness. But in a spiritual universe, it would be the light of god. This means that the only true way to live one's life and be an artist is through one's positive emotions as they are the only things that can allow us to experience the good qualities of life. These famous and genius miserable artists have mistakenly thought that they were experiencing the good qualities of life through inspiring others and whatnot through their art when this couldn't be any further from the truth.

    Now, I wish to be a composer. This means that I must fully recover from any emotional trauma and misery in my life before I can finally embrace and celebrate the good qualities of my life and composing. Without the light in my life, then my life can only be darkness or just simply blank (neither light nor dark). It's no way to live or be an artist. Our positive emotions are the only things that can make our lives worth living in a good way. Let me actually break it down for you:

    It is an established fact that our emotions are everything to our lives. Without emotions, then nothing could matter to us. We could have thoughts of things mattering to us, but nothing would actually matter to us. From here, this is where my theory comes in. It is not our negative emotions that make our lives matter to us in good ways. It is only our positive emotions that do this while our negative emotions can only make our lives matter to us in bad or horrible ways.

    This theory, if true, could change the world and help find cures and create a utopia life for us all so that people and artists can live the lives they were truly meant to live. As for the types of experiments we can perform to discover evidence for my theory if there really is evidence for it, I do not know. I am not good when it comes to ideas for experiments.

    A property is not a force. Temperature is a property. Density is a property.

    I think in fact your post is more of a "Free Thought" than anything to do with science.

    Life is more than just a syzygy.

    If your art can bring a cathartic affect to others, go for it.

    Not all properties are forces, but some properties are forces.

    You have no idea what I've been through. You have no idea how profoundly beautiful my positive emotions are and how horrible my miserable emotions are for me. To just casually dismiss and disregard my "theory" shows you have no idea of my personal experiences. My positive emotions are the light to my life. They are everything to me.

    Are you dissing me?

    I had no intention of provoking you.

    I'm sorry if I came across as angry towards you. That was not my intention. I was just simply letting you know how my positive emotions are everything to me.

    It is an established fact that our emotions are everything to our lives. Without emotions, then nothing could matter to us. We could have thoughts of things mattering to us, but nothing would actually matter to us. From here, this is where my theory comes in.

    Well, I'll take that as an apology, thanks.

    My sentiment was more about myself because I like art.

    But could we actually discuss my theory at hand? I prefer to take my theory seriously. Do you not see the great potential of this theory being true? It seems so true to me based upon my personal experience of these emotions. People would tell me things such as that depression and misery are good, that I can channel them to create works of art, etc. I could tell this is blatant nonsense. I have nothing but horrible and dark energy flowing through me and I am in the absolute worst state of my life. This is a time in my life where no art should be created. Rather, it is a time I rest and get help. But even getting help cannot allow me to experience the good qualities of life. I am still in the worst state of my life.

    You can sublimate, yes.

    Do you not imagine though, your theory could've been around since the dawn of civilization?

    No, because why would we have all these miserable genius artists and people celebrating their ways of life? They claim that these miserable geniuses were living the good life since they have channeled their misery into their artwork. Even the geniuses themselves believed this. But my theory contradicts this. That is the reason why I do not imagine my theory having been around. I think this is a new theory I have come up with.

    Study for a degree in psychology, if you haven't already.

    Plan the next 10 years of your life whilst developing this theory?

    The thing is, I wish to dedicate my life towards other things. I do not wish to study psychology just as how I have no interest in studying biology or physics. I just wish to be happy and enjoy my life and hobbies. That is why I would hand my theory over to people who are knowledgeable who can perform the right experiments to test my theory.

    Well, I'd think you don't actually have a theory but a feeling.
    I don't want to come across as an ass, but IMO, you gotta' be smarter in the presentation of your ideas.

    Nonetheless, this idea of mine would still be a very important insight for others such as my family, therapist, and others out in the world. It is especially an important insight for others out in the world who would call me names such as selfish, childish, spoiled, etc. due to the fact that my happiness (positive emotions) are the only things that make my life truly good and worth living. This worldview/idea of mine is not that of a child. It would be a huge misconception to think so and it would completely dismiss and ignore my needs as a human being. These types of people would be ignoring my own inner light I need in my life.

    Dude, are you preaching the use of illegal drugs?

    No. We still need our value judgments to make wise decisions such as avoiding drug use. I would never do drugs knowing the harm they would cause me even if they made me feel bliss. So, our value judgments would simply be vital tools to help us avoid harmful situations.

    Why is this thread in this subforum? Maybe Philosophy or Alternate Theories?

    Why isn't there a subforum where troll posts can be evaluated before disgorging them, bones and all?

    Yes I've reported it with a request to move to Free Thoughts.

    I must say I have seen quite a few of these threads now from Matt, moaning about his life. No doubt this is due to some psychological state, with which we can sympathise, but this is not a therapy website. It is a science forum.

    I'm actually fully recovered and am doing all better now. I just wish to share this theory I have learned from my own personal struggles with depression and misery. It is a theory that I am convinced is true.
