i see you are playing the game my friend......because you do get it and are afraid to take any leaps forward. whereas i enjoyed the banter you clearly are lost inside the loop of your own thoughts and it is taking over your life, to such an extent that you are yearning for validation on this concept. i do feel for ya, and i sense a deep sadness and a conflicting emotive response.

Good and bad are moral judgements. You might prefer to use well and unwell? Also, positive and negative have scientific meanings which are different to, once again, moral judgements. You might prefer useful and unhelpful?

And again, separating mental state from emotional state is problematic. They exist together, intertwined.

It's fine to talk. Talking helps. Listening helps too.

But by saying that emotions are merely a matter of feeling well and unwell and that it is instead other things in life which are good and bad, then that places more importance upon other things. I think our emotions are truly the only things that give good and bad value to our lives. Positive and negative can be scientific such as a positive and negative charge.

But there is another type of positive and negative which refers to good and bad. For example, a positive outlook would refer to an outlook where you look at things as being good and beautiful in your life while a negative outlook would be an outlook where you look at things as being horrible, bad, and disgusting.

But, like I said, I think it can only be our emotional states which are the real positive and negative mental states and not our outlooks/mindsets themselves since, as I said before, our mindsets themselves are not any real positive and negative quality mental state. Lastly, the term mental state can refer to any type of mental state whether it be hearing something, seeing something, smelling something, thinking of something, having a hallucination, etc. This is because the term mental refers to the mind and not just emotions.

If you do not have a doctor, I strongly suggest you find one.. you don't see it, however you are obsessive in this thought process or messing with us because you are bored.

I ask you not to post these long, excessive litanies any more.

You do not receive the answer you want, people become frustrated posting on the thread.

Next time you post on this subject at this length, I will request admin to block you member ID. It can be considered "harassment" or "inciting" under the forum guidelines/rules

Thank you
