Emotions are based and invoked according to the beliefs of the individual. With beliefs I mean the neuron layout inside the brain, the memory. There is a reason why you're applying the concept of math at the real world, and there is a reason why (the neuron layout, the memory) you believe in emotions.
That's true, but emotions are not beliefs, they are emotions.
Emotions, just as religons, are obvious lies. Fact: There is no "connection" between two individuals that could cause a feeling of love, if both of them understood their internal workings.
- Your brain believe that religon is a lie because of your brain's memory layout.
- Your brain don't believe that love is a lie because of your brain's memory layout.
It's clear that you're just choosing a comfortable place to draw the line, because you're an emotion-controlled life-form.
Concepts such as yours cannot be applied without judging the world in a false way.
Which means, again, that you're just drawing a line somewhere because you're "programmed" to preserve your beliefs. Otherwise you'd just get "empty". Your emotions are your limitation.
All opinions and beliefs are lies, or no opinions and beliefs are lies, because they are all lacking information about something, and can therefore never be entirely correct.
People have changed completely, the standard moral of today is completely different than for just 100 years ago. Most humans stick to the "old ways" due to their emotional limitations.
Uh, no it's not, change's in society are due to increased technology, and increases in knowledge, human nature remains exactly the same, people have all the instincts, all the feelings, all the drives, that they did 10,000 years ago.
There is no reason why not dying would be intelligent, as the want to live is just a simple unintelligent drive.
Wrong, it is only intelligent to avoid dangerous things if you FEAR death, if you do not FEAR death, then you do not care whether you die or not. Intellect is powerless without a direction.
Instead of living to satisfy simple emotions, one could change the goal to live to explore the world instead - as Einstein did more than the average person. It's possible to be controlled by reasoning and calculations instead of by emotions.
Nonsense. You could hold a gun to my head, and I would not react irrational, I would not feel anything at all. You could try to cheer me up in whatever way you could imagine and I would not be affected, etc.. Emotions can easily be removed if replaced with another drive.
Emotions are hardwired into the brain (we KNOW some of the mechanisms they are based on, we can see the region of the brain that controls them,) in the same way that breathing is hardwired into the brain. The ONLY way these could be removed is though either genetic modification or physically chopping that part of the brain out
Emotions are not hard-coded, they're part of your neuron-layout and can be removed in a few years as your brain gets a different neuron layout.
Intelligence can observe emotions, understand them, and finally remove them.
Intelligence has nothing to do with emotion, nothing AT ALL to do with emotion,
Why? If humans would ignore their emotions, they're no longer emotion-based.
People are of course capable of ignoring their emotions, that however is something quite different.
This does not prevent an intelligent non-emotion based life to exist. It would just need some other drive than to satisfy emotions to reproduce. Like the exploration of something. There are already examples of artificial neural nets doing just this - and they don't have emotions.
..... really? Find me an animal that doesn't have emotions then........ oh wait there are none. Emotions are merely drives, without them we would not REPRODUCE, we would not care if we died, even if we did reproduce (which we wouldn't) we would not look after our offspring so they would die.
Why? I could find it useful with an elaboration of especially A.
Emotions are A: Nessesary for complex life B: An integral part of the brain that cannot simply be removed by social engeneering.
Emotions describes you - which is a part of the world as well, this description is wrong. The superficial layer of emotions in an human is a lie. You wrongly judge yourself, an object in the world, by having emotions.
A lie, has to be a desciption of the universe that is false, for example, if I said the world was flat, that would be a lie, if i said Australia is located two miles east of Berlin that would also be a lie.
Emotions do NOT in any way describe the universe therefore they are not lies. They are a RESPONCE, I am feeling happy, does not in any way describe the universe.
It describes you. An emotion is a belief of a condition that you are in.
I love person X, does NOT describe person X, it descibes my RESPONCE to them.
Intelligence (or something non-emotional) can evaluate things. Your heart is beating without an emotion controlling the process. Non-emotion laws could control other things as well, and thus create intelligent life.
You can't intelligence cannot evaluate anything
