98. Feeling is our most fundamental survival function.

There are feeling receptors throughout our bodies, constantly
transmitting information to our brains. I'm sure they pick up
more than we generally notice or pay attention to.

Do you have no personal sense of something called instinct?

If not, do you consider instinct in humans to be unreliable?

Is instinct unreliable in animals? How do they know to
find water, seek shelter, build a nest?

We have come so far from our natural feeling selves and
that's at the heart of all the misery in the world.

When a person knows how to feel they are not easily
able to block out the suffering of others, or inflict harm
on another.

We learn not to feel when we are kids. But without feeling
the big important brains have made a big mess of the world.
