can you say more in this topic?
i think hippies suggested that this have something to do with neurochemistry,
that you can disconnect it by some drugs, and connect back with others.
you suggest that suffering can be OUT OF CORTEX?
(did i understand you properly - a state of mind
in which reward system is activating disaproval system which is looped thru
certain memory region(remembering a fact) which is activating reward system (and expression is
releasing this memory out as an meme stimulating reward system while
copying unpleasant fact into subject's memory and thus loop can be made in external device)
or you talk about different kind of suffering and empathy?
