When a feeling triggers a thought, it is an extremely complicated process if you look at the details - on the surface it is a simple process, a feeling simply cause the person to feel something for a certain period of time, and during that time different and more subtle feelings are evoked that are associated with the main feeling.

So if there are smaller feelings involved with any major feeling, that means that the smaller feelings are going to be related or associated with the main feeling.

Different feelings can be logical or illogical - but what is a 'logical' feeling? Maybe some feelings people bias with their own personal emotions, these feelings could be more unconscious feelings because the unconscious is more emotional than the conscious mind.

So a thought could be influenced by unconscious feelings, and this could be considered or labeled as being more unconscious than a thought that the person thinks more clearly and consciously to themselves.

Perceptions and the unconscious

How could i describe the different ways of perceiving life or anything in it? Would there be a 'psychotic' way of perceiving it and a non-psychotic? a logical or a non-logical? a conscious or an unconscious? What might other ways of perceiving life be?

If someone perceives life from a psychotic viewpoint they might slant some of the information depending on their perspective. They might the slant the information in a non-logical manner so they can see the world the way they want to see it. Or perhaps emotional conditions placed upon them cause them to create a greater emotional emphasis on some things - probably the things which they are psychotic about.

So there is clearly a psychotic way of viewing the world - however this 'emotional bias' towards certain things in life can be applied to non-psychotic people, who could also put an emotional bias on different things. There could be something in specific that they put an emotional bias on, or a group of related or dissimilar things.

Therefore some thoughts that a person might have could be illogical, and that could be compared to a psychotic person viewing something completely differently. What would the difference be between viewing something completely differently and viewing something only slightly differently then?

Maybe there are degrees to which something can make sense, and different amounts of logical can be used in viewing something.

What would be examples of something that could be viewed differently? Any experience or even an individual object could be made to not make sense or viewed in a psychotic fashion, it would seem.

Visual distance and consciousness

Sancripriano mentioned a 'visual distance' in an above quotation, however, what could the mind be perceiving exactly? Different things in life are perceived in different ways, and people are conscious of those things in different ways also.

Different things that people see are linked to different cognitions, and they trigger different mental representations.

A mental representation is a 'unit of thought' or some sort of understanding that the mind has. What is the nature of this understanding? The mind could be considered to be made up of different units of understanding.

How could the mind be made up of understandings? People simply understand different things, they understand how a car looks, they understand how the car makes them feel. There must be an understanding of how the car and looking at an automobile makes them feel and the 'actual' feeling. There is going to be a relationship between the unconscious feelings involved and the conscious feelings involved. If the person is using their consciousness to think about the understanding of how the car makes them feel at the current time then that is probably more conscious, and less of an unconscious endeavor or feeling.

What is an 'actual' feeling?

An actual feeling is one that is probably fully harnessed by the unconscious mind. that means, however, that there must be some sort of interaction with the conscious mind. Depending on the feeling it might be that there needs to be some sort of conscious processing - in order for the feeling to coincide with conscious feelings you might need to think about the feeling or develop consciously in order to properly experience the feeling.

Which feelings and thoughts are 'actually' conscious?

SO which feelings and thoughts are 'actually' conscious then? It really varies a considerable amount depending on the circumstances in reality - however the conscious mind builds and changes its response to the feelings it receives in reality. Would the feeling-responses be defined as being conscious or unconscious then? Consciousness i have already stated is being understood as an iceberg, with most of the feelings and processes being beneath the surface.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.

what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
