Agreed. Back to the original debate, what you are communicating
is consistant with my original post, we just chose to use different words.
I will admit that yours are perhaps more clear, however, they still prove
the point that all emotion can be reduced to cause/effect (call it what
you will), and that it is not something spiritual or mystical that exists
as a seperate entity from all other forms of human experience. They are
all intertwined. This thread is rather dead now, so I will not continue.
