Pain and anger

Pain and anger – by P.K.Odendaal – April 2016

The ideas which I wish to explore today relate to emotions and I wish to explore two aspects of it:
·         Is it possible that the intensity of emotions might follow the curve posited by Malthus in his Malthusian Growth Model?
·         Can one emotion be replaced by another emotion as a surrogate such as when we replace sugar with honey?
These are two weird and totally unconnected ideas, so we must accept that they are valid just becasue they are weird. It is only the obvious ideas which turn out to be fiction.
To explore that we need to know what the Malthusian Growth Model is.
