NOT drinking the kool-aid
I had a training day today, learning lots of great stuff about human behaviour that has been peer-reviewed, tested etc etc and one thing the presenter said struck me.
She talked about experiencing two or more emotions at the same time.
And I remembered times that I'd done that - like been super-angry but also sad and maybe a bit scared all at the same time.
Now where does THAT fit into Hubbard's paradigm in the Tone Scale?
He never mentioned it - in fact he insisted that a person would be in ONE tone level only at a time, maybe with a social veneer of another level obscuring the "real" tone.
Yet here I was recalling time in my life (and others' too) that clearly contradicted The Tehc.
Your thoughts? Experiences?
Sounds true to me. I have seen things and heard things that are so aesthetic and uplifting that I have tears rolling. I think, wtf?
To me, emotion is associated with thought; one can have many thoughts comprising a certain event. In fact I think the benefit of abreactive/dianetic therapy is the rediscovery of all ones' thoughts that comprised an incident and ending cycle on them, especially the thought(s) in which one postulated.
