    Here is one more person's response and my reply to him from the summary of my book:

    Other Person's Response: Perhaps explain what makes them qualitatively different from other biochemical thoughts, while you're at it. I understand that we put one in one box, and the other in a different box...but I strongly suspect that this is folklore and fairy tale. A product of centuries of inability to see the workings of our own mind.

    My Reply: The biochemical emotions are forms of motivation (drive). For example, when you feel sexually aroused, that is a sex drive. But when you don't feel sexually aroused and having the thought of being sexually aroused cannot put you back into that sexually aroused state, then having the thought of being sexually aroused would just be empty words. They would not give you any sex drive. That is why our rational value judgments cannot be any real emotions (drive/motivation) while it can only be our biochemical emotions which are the real emotions (drive/motivation).

    The same idea applies to value judgments. Our rational value judgments are not any real value judgments and it can only be our biochemical emotions which are the real value judgments. People are mistaking their rational value judgements as being the real emotions and real value judgments when it was really their biochemical emotions all along which were the real emotions and the real value judgments. Even the idea of our biochemical emotions being value judgments is supported by skeptics and neuroscientists. I present one quote from one of these skeptics/neuroscientists in my book. I will just go ahead and present it here though. Although, I disagree with his idea that our rational value judgments are real value judgments:

    We are here to discuss this book. It's not a book I am selling. It would be no different than if I posted something here and discussed it. Therefore, this really is a normal discussion we are having. But it's taking on a much longer form is all (a book).

    Doesn't matter if you are selling it or not AFAIK, you are still spamming this site trying to get members to visit the site where your book is.
    Yes it is, trying to get traffic to your site by spamming here is against the rules. If you want to discuss it discuss it here, don't try to get people to leave this site to visit your site.

    I think you should lighten up. He's not selling anything.

    I think this site has a limitation on the the number of characters that can be placed in a post; otherwise, I would say post your book here.
