Humans have emotions - feelings are tangible while emotions are - or could be considered to be deep and complicated. The idea that feelings are tangible basically means that they could be more sensory or less intellectual and deep. Emotions are more powerful than feelings; however, they could also trigger the human intellect.

What would it mean for emotion to be powerful? Would that involve physical feelings? Physical stimulation can also be deep or shallow, emotional or intellectual. If the feeling (physical, emotional) is intellectual then it could be emotional or it could also be tied in with sensory feelings (say when you touch something).

What would it mean for something to be intellectual? Would that mean that it is different from the persons emotions? Emotions can be tied in with feelings - however that means that the emotion could be shallow and thought provoking or deep, or a strong emotion that is also deep.

It is important to distinguish deep feelings from sensory feelings. Deep feelings are probably intellectual - they are tied in with complicated cognitions which include memory processes, executive functioning (control of thoughts, ideas and images) and understanding concepts.

Concepts can also be emotional since they are intellectual or intelligent. A concept is like an idea only it is general or generic. An idea is something that occurs to someone while a concept could be the definition of an idea or the idea that the person refers to or already understood. Those deeper concepts can trigger emotions that are related to the idea or concept. A single concept could be powerful or significant to the person.

A humans emotions could influence their thoughts - and their physical feelings can also influence either their thoughts or their emotions (or both at the same time). Thoughts could be complicated - they are a mix of goals and motivations with the persons environment and experience. Furthermore, a motivation could have complicated emotions, and their present situation could be causing complicated emotions.

The difference between feelings and thoughts is simple and complex - a thought could be complex because it could involve the persons motivations mixed in with the objects in their environment and their experience. They could have a thought for each object or each objective reality in their situation.

The difference between their feelings and thoughts then is that their feelings cause feeling, or stimulation and could be complex and intellectual while their thoughts could be unconscious or complex.

Title

Humans have feelings. Humans can also think about their feelings. Other factors in reality help the thinking process - such as what is in the persons environment, and what they are paying attention to all assist the persons thinking process.

But what exactly is a thought process? Is it a sentence? Is it a single idea? Is it a few ideas that the person is trying to think about or understand?

The ideas someone is thinking about could be complicated and internal - or simple and related to their environment.

Humans have ideas - mulitple ideas can compose a thought process. The ideas can be about different things - stuff in the persons environement, other ideas or memories that they want to think about, and they can form thoughts or sentences about those ideas - they can also think about their feelings (with ideas or sentences).

For instance, a feeling could be an idea - or an idea could become a feeling

What does that mean an idea is? An idea is something that occurs to someone - it is a concept or intention, or an understanding of some sort.

Ideas can relate to a persons feelings - and to the persons thought process. That is, ideas can complete a thought process.

Title

Ideas are thoughts that occur to people, 'that is an excellent idea' wold be the expression.

People have emotions. Their emotions are feelings that they feel. That means that they like to think about things

If humans think, then however it is more fun , however , it is not fun , however I now think that that makes sense.

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
