Causality and Emotion

Sunday October 3, 2021

It’s funny how these two are linked, for me anyway.

The more emotional I become, or perhaps the more stirred up or excited I become, the more causality finds its way into my thinking and writing.

I was just writing about my past self today, and I kept writing things like,

  • The main reason for that was,
  • This is because,
  • This caused,

And when I re-read those sentences, a better replacement would be something like,

  • An intriguing reason for that could be,
  • This may have been connected to,
  • We could say that this influenced

And I like thinking about this. It helps me to understand how many different ways of thinking about things there are, and many of them—certainly more than one “definite reason”—are very helpful.
