Subject: Emotions Not Felt
I wonder if emotions not felt are related to Platonic ideas of things
that exist, but are not yet discovered or noted by man. For instance,
there is a world of mathematics, FAR more vast than what we already
have, of theorems and truths that nobody has ever thought of and
possibly never will. And proofs that have not yet been devised, but in
a Platonic sense exist.
More concrete, what about layers of physical truth not yet noted? What
if Einstein had not explained Brownian motion, the mechanisms would
still exist, even if nobody knew it, even today. We spend a lot of
effort looking for the missing matter of the universe. Nobody knows what
it is, or if it is really there.
So as yet non felt emotions make perfect sense to me. How I will feel
when my children do this or that is as yet unfelt.
