    @Sonny Melendrez how wonderful are those three expressions "something to do, to love, to forward" without expectations in return. Every human truly like to hear and it's become a more customized inhumane nature to think what's for me. "Color of life is crystal clear, only upon variances of colors can be seen in depth" and "Life as a music, a choreography of the connections .. like the ways of rhythm, orchestra, chronology and symphony.. resulting in purposeful music (with time and more of customized cultured culture trending trends trend things become more of commercials)". The way I see it: Kaleidoscopic effect.

    #4 Agreed. But was establishing an elementary starting point for positive behavioral outcomes. Your list represents what not to do. I believe in many cases folks figure that out fairly quickly by the stimulus response theory.

    Folks tend to repeat behaviours because its what they know. Often times i find that win-loss is practiced because this lack of understanding in what they should do.

    What would the list look like on the other side of the coin?

    Your list of don'ts is good for the veteran who has experience in all forms of argument. They help identify the behaviour and what the individual is looking for in outcome. The broad category of win-loss once identified allows the veteran to work towards win-win.

    The lizard brain, Amygdala or limbic system is an automatic aspect of our brain. We can't stop it but we can rationalize its products before we act.

    Arguments are not intended to hurt until someone chooses to make it that. Arguments are two ideals meeting, each not understanding the other. Passion. It is a more recent phenomena that state's arguments are bad. What would we call two opposing ideals that each presenter has passion?

    13/03/2017 #4 Robert Bacal
    #3 @Harvey Lloyd that works, too. However, learning different communication skills is like learning any new habit, except it's a set of mental habits. The "lizard" brain" you speak of does NOT function automatically, but only when triggered by learned triggers (for the most part). They can also be unlearned.

    If you need a reminder that works (and I think that's a great idea), there's nothing lost.

    Also, one of the things about fighting fair is that it's more about NOT doing damage, as it is about problem solving.

    Problem solving during a disagreement isn't possible until both parties are calm enough to stop hurting each other.

    13/03/2017 #3 Harvey Lloyd
    Although i agree with the principals of the points made, These are difficult to remember or reach for when we look from inside of the argument. On the outside we can come up and consider a list such as this. From the inside our focus has narrowed and the thinking brain is usually turned off.

    We need a catalyst within our lizard brain to help us find the breadcrumbs to what your post articulates.

    My catalyst, is always KEEP YOU EYE ON THE BALL. Yes its cliche. But it is cliches that work when our focus is narrow. In every argument each wants something different towards the same goal. Identifying the goal and focusing on that keeps your list in play. Or should i say the opposite of your list?

    Once you deviate into the abyss of win-loss you can't come back within that same setting. You have to stop, cool off and start over.

    I un-banked when I left the States, I haven't had a telephone in 3 years, if I were to say I have any Emotional Account - it would have been unplugged too. Emotions, and pandering to them, are quite avoidable. We live in a six second world where 'Reality' is faked, scripted, produced ~ where you are an easily replaceable line item on a corporate spread sheet ~ where 'love' is transactional, temporary and disposable ~ where war is not only inevitable but routinely scheduled. Society is merely a herd of widgets - managed through the life-cycle wickets of eat, sleep, work & reproduce well teased with money and goaded with fear before you are shuffled of to the meat packing slaughter house.
    I try to keep my Apathy in check with doses of Indifference and Detached Ambivalence - I am rewarded daily for those efforts.

    As someone who prides himself on positive thinking -- despite naysayers -- I completely concur with your astute advice, Emilia. It's just as easy to think positively than negatively and view the proverbial cup as half full, rather than half empty. I wish you all the best and hope your cup overflows with positive life experiences.
    Lastly, for those who have a negative mindset as knee-jerk reaction, here's some recommended reading by the godfather of positive thinking, the late and great Rev. Norman Vincent Peale https://www.amazon.com/Norman-Vincent-Peale/e/B000APPE7E Keep buzzing in 2017!

    So much to say about this mind-opening 14 minutes of scientific inspiration.

    Anyone paying attention to their own life can find the snippets of memory that prove that their immune system is affected by their prevalent feeling-state - a malignant mindset accompanies physical dis-ease of all sorts.

    When it comes to health, I was dealt good genetics, but even more importantly, a mother who was a nurse for a pediatrician. I fundamentally believe that my body can heal itself, because she was very pragmatic, and unemotional about the relatively rare instances when I was less than healthy. In fact, once, I had a gash down my leg from a rusty nail climbing a treehouse not up to code and I remember sitting on the patio while she put in paper stitches. We didn't even go to the emergency room, just a routine visit to the doctor's office.

    Today, when anything goes wrong, I have a full-on grumble about the pain, and then affirm that my body knows how to heal. I listen to the pain and take appropriate courses of action to fix the source of the issue, rather than cover the symptoms.

    Something will eventually get me, but until that final situation, I chose to know that health is an abundantly available resource that I am in full control of.

    I am so grateful that you shared this story with the world, @Ian Weinberg. The word needs to spread like wildfire.

    #13 Hi again @Harvey Lloyd I've investigated and written extensively on the influences which come to bear upon us - from the maternal in utero environment, through the formative years and beyond. And yes, there are very powerful determining forces at play. The unfolding life narrative will determine many aspects of our later choices in life, behavior and beliefs and importantly, will determine our potential for change. The influences of our resultant 'consciousness' are also formidable - influencing our physical environments as well as our states of wellness or illness. I would refer you to 3 of my previous articles which collectively may provide you with a more comprehensive answer. See https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/naked-consciousness and https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/embrace-the-zeitgeist-and-transcend and https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/the-neuroscience-of-change

    The mind is a powerful organ, if we can call it by such a simple name. Your post certainly raises the connections between well being and our thoughts/perceptions. I would ask though, does not the mind require a master to grow? In your discussion here you provided this mastery of understanding to assist the patient.

    Our thoughts become cyclical without a master to lead us out of the jungle we create. Your thoughts?

    This is a great article, and another great view of how Men and Woman are created different. Like in times when both of my Wife and I have the same Emotions, we still have different Feelings. My focus can get keep us moving forward, with her drive. It makes us a great team to get through hard times.
    I remember reading a book about studies of Male and Female brains. The Female neurotransmitters were able to naturally release almost 5 times as many chemicals as a Male. This is one reason, women naturally have a "sixth sense" and can multi-task very well and Males are very focus and purpose driven.
    With her gift of awareness, it fills in so many of my gaps. I remember when my daughter was about 8 weeks old, she was coughing. My wife said we needed to take her to the doctor. To me, it sounded like a simple cough once every couple hours. Yet, my wife mentioned, "she's not making that sound she always does." I had no idea what my wife was talking about. When we got to the hospital, my doctor was diagnosed with RSV and put in the Children Hospital for over a week with machine's attached to her.
    These feelings my wife had saved my daughter life. While I would had stood analyzing the given facts at the time and gone back to sleep. I had the same emotions that night, yet I was like Spock trying to think logically at the time.

    I found your article compelling in the sense that emotions and feelings have separate sets of definitions, not interchangeable. I would add though that life tends to demonstrate a rapid fire at us and our brain requires us to act at pace. The life narrative has us develop quick and dirty sub-routines that allow us to act in real time. Sometimes the subroutines operate out loud.

    Your discussion here helps us in labeling those sub-routines into small enough pieces so that we can evaluate the outcomes. I read something the other day concerning these labels and functions that stated our limbic brain may also have limited cognitive abilities. In other words we can develop cognitive, functioning subroutines that are complex within the limbic system.

    For me, the implications were a little surreal. The implication is that even though logic would dictate something of change within us, we still must overcome the developed cognitive processes within our limbic system. I would propose this process can only be done through the processes of being able to identify the various components of the limbic subroutines.

    You articulated this well.

    #6 Hi @Brian McKenzie! Thank you for bringing the problem of the languages to the table. I grasp what you said as i have almost the same problem when explaining this differences to my students in Português (my mother tongue). In English we use the word "Feel" to express a situation or a feeling. When working with my clients and students, on the beginning, usually I ask them to not use the word feeling to express a feeling but instead use the work "sense" the feeling. It's a simple trick to make them aware that feelings are a body manifestation of emotions produced in the brain. And by saying I sense the feeling they don't immediately identify themselves with the feeling. Thank you for your input Brian. Have a wonderful day!

    #8 I am an Empath and I can feel someones sadness from across the world with out being in direct contact with them.

    So I am not mirroring anything. I get the feeling to check on people by getting their emotions and then I engage in with them

    When I do emotional clearings with people i take it on and they feel completely different as I suck the emotional right out of them and replace it it with what I generate from my heart chakra.

    This is why I have trouble with the idea of the mirror neurons and that Empaths only mirror. We do not though we can.

    I straight take on their emotions as do the thousands of Empaths I have worked with over the years.

    I definitely do not agree with the mirroring effect.

    That is an ability that an empath can use in direct engagement as a shield to keep their energy from being drained. I have been doing a lot of scientific reading over the years. Trying to better understand myself and how and why I exist the way I do and why so many others can do it too.

    An Empath will actually take the emotion as if it is theirs and will give their energy to stabilize other people.

    And Empaths tend to take on the suppressed and repressed emotions.

    When I do engage I can feel what people would be feeling if I was not holding them in stable emotional place and have had people that happen face to face too many times that it is proven it to me that I don;t mirror a thing unless I intend to. Empaths actually take it on and take it out of people.

    #5 Good morning dear friend @Ali Anani. What a pleasure to have reading my work and find it useful. From now on you can referrer to me when explaining the difference between emotions and feelings. :))). We know that to talk and explain this subjects to other is a complex task because this are complex subjects. That is why I always do my best to make simple in a way that everyone can grasp it. It works with my students and clients and now it is working with my readers. Thank you so much for your support my dear friend.

    #4 Hi @Max J. Carter - thank you for reading me. You made a very interesting question about the feelings empaths take from other people. I published a couple days ago an article about Mirror Neurons and Empathy - I live the link in case you want to read it https://www.bebee.com/producer/@emilia-ludovino/mirror-neurons-and-empathy. Mirror neurons help us to understand that the feelings empaths take from others are just a mirroring effect. Yes, we can feel (sense) the feelings of others) but the situation that initially triggered the feeling on the other person is not our trigger. So, yes we can feel them by mirroring the feelings but being aware that they're not our feelings. Imagine for instance that you love snake but your girlfriend has absolute terror of them. One day she sees one snake and becomes to have a panic attack - you do your best to help her out, but as an empath you can feel her fear and terror, etc. Though you also see the snake and you keep calm because snakes don't trigger in you the feeling of fear and terror. Hope my answer makes sense to you. Have a wonderful day.

    This is also a language problem with English. The distinction between I am and I feel get confused when most speakers ellipse key words. My students struggle with "I am sleep" because in Russian, the nominative case indicates a different connection to the verb than the genitive case indicates the connection to the gerund / adjective. I prefer the Russian, the cases tend to keep feelings / emotions mishes to a minimum.

    My friend @Emilia M. Ludovino- I have been involved so much on writing about emotions and feelings. I have searched literature so many times trying not to mix feelings and emotions. In most of my readings, I forget what I read because the differentiation wasn't even clear to the writer's mind. Now, you offer this explanation "Feelings are the next thing that happens after having an emotion, involve cognitive input, usually subconscious, and cannot be measured precisely". This is the best differentiation I have come across. Thank you Emilia. Shared

    Very cool (although unfortunate) story. The thing about H.M. remembering things unconsciously - and answering faster because of it - somehow reminded me of that scene from The Matrix when Neo enters the Source. When he asks the Architect "Why am I here?" , he gets a vague answer, and says: "You haven't answered my question". The Architect then observes: "Interesting. That was faster than the others." :-)

    @Aurorasa Sima I've always taken my memory for granted. After reading your post last night, I woke up and I can remember yesterday, and my past. The brain is quite small be to able to hold all these things I've lived, yet I'm able to recall many things vividly. These are some experiences which can trigger a flashback, like with my accident, and I'm never happy with those. It is good though that I can recall, I'm guessing because that poor man could not. Its quite interesting how medicine and science has evolved, especially when they botch a surgery. To learn sometimes we have to see things go wrong. Quite interesting. This is definitely something to thing about. #16

    @Aurorasa Sima.Thank you for sharing an insightful story.The brand recall studies often reveal two dimensions of memory or awareness; prompted and unprompted.When the researcher ask the interviewee ;What comes into your mind when I say(brand) without showing cards with names this is considered spontaneous or unprompted awareness.Memory is always associated with stimuli in two ways ,the depth of the memory and the breadth of memory .Intensive individual interviews is concerned with the depth,while group discussions provide the width.The depth is not implying probing the unconscious mind in the question what comes into ..? but is always concerned with the answers of the question Why?.Because the memory of elders is always deceptive and colored with current events,to obtain a broad understanding of a problem group discussions may be more appropriate .This doesn't mean we should not use intensive interviews,as both of them can be used consequently to reveal details or the attitudes which the interviewees themselves may be unaware of or are not able to articulate.

    This was a intriguing for me because in just two weeks I am going into the hospital for a week for another Video EEG to see if I can qualify for my brain surgery to stop my seizures that I have lived with for 30 years. I love how powerful our subconscious is. I have written on it many times, yet I haven't looked at it from this point of view. This is another reason I enjoy the Hive.

    #10 Thank you @Aurorasa Sima for your kind response. I am working on clarifying and elaborating and look forward to sharing my thoughts with you. I found this reference in wikipedia. I don't know how accurate the term amnesia is, but still relevant to memory, but here is that story and the name of the doctor. "Claparède performed an influential experiment demonstrating how the trauma of a painful event could be retained even if short term memory was lost.[5] His experiment involved a woman who suffered from a form of amnesia. She had all of her old memories as well as her basic reasoning skills, but the recent past was not remembered. Claparède had greeted her every day, each time she could not remember his face at all. Then during one session of the experiment, Claparède hid a pin in his hand and reached to shake the woman's hand, pricking her. The next day, sure enough, she did not remember him. But when Claparède went to shake her hand, he found that she hesitated, recognizing a threat when her memory had been severely damaged."

    Great post @Aurorasa Sima. The complexity of the mind is reflected by the complexity of memory. My bias (obsession) is that memory is time, and as sensory beings we experience time as a sense. That is one reason for the expression, "The body remembers." There is an anecdote from a case study about a woman (approximately in the same time period as Molaison) who had no short term memory. The doctor would introduce himself each time he met with her as if for the first time. One time he had a sharp point concealed in the palm of his hand and so when he introduced himself and shook hands with her, she pulled away after having been pricked. After a while, he went to her and introduced himself and put out his hand to shake hers and after she started to put out her hand, she pulled it back before he could shake her hand.

    I am very encouraged to hear about the work you and @Ian Weinberg are pursuing. I signed up to get the updates. Wishing you all the success.
