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.
