chisparoja1: how are you?So! I am now investigating this further. Please satisfy my curiosity.
QBC 101: i am reading an argument between two of my lj friends. it is being conducted civilly.
chisparoja1: yes but how are you? how do you feel?
QBC 101: i am okay. i am feeling simply interested in what i am reading. it confuses me when you expect me to always be feeling some more specific emotion at every single moment. the percentage of my life that i spend feeling specific emotions that can be put into words in a way other than by describing what i'm doing is rather small.
QBC 101: do you not have a "default, not really feeling anything in particular right now" emotional state???
QBC 101: i can't imagine this.
chisparoja1: i don't understand how you can not feel anything.
QBC 101: i don't understand how you can *always* feel something!
Are you always feeling a specific emotion at every moment?
I think so, yeah.
No, but it's fairly rare for me to not be feeling a specific emotion.
No, I quite often am not feeling any specific emotion in particular.
I never feel any emotions ever! I am a rock. Or a Vulcan.
