DAVID BIRNBAUM METAPHYSICS
DAVID BIRNBAUM PHILOSOPHY
It is not that EMOTION happens to be the byproduct of human interaction; Rather, part of the raison d’etre of humans’ ever-ascending complexity and sophistication, albeit continuing primitive brutality, is to develop and play out the panoply of EMOTION in ever-increasing range and nuance.
“Human aggressiveness” plays into both key themes:
The cosmos itself is hyper-aggressive; Only a hyper-aggressive dynamic could have burst forth into REALITY from the VOID. As hypothesized, human dynamics parallel cosmic dynamics; In addition, aggressiveness is a key to reaching various potentialities.
The by-products of aggressiveness… even the very severe ‘bad’ ones, e.g. victimization, murder, destruction, enslavement, torture, betrayal, humiliation… play out the dark-side gamut of emotion. This “dark side” gamut of emotion is presumably symmetric to the “light side” gamut (e.g. joy, happiness, exhilaration, love, etc.). It is conjectured here that one could not have the “light side” of the gamut, without its symmetric “dark side”.
A diabolical spin on the above would conjecture that
the cosmos indeed wanted to play-out both sides of
the emotional spectrum.
I would hope that such is not the case.
