Happiness: It's All in Your Head

Posted by : Rev. Ouabache | Sunday, February 14, 2010 | Published in

Here's a little graphic I threw together awhile back when Professor Cramulus asked for some marginalia for Intermittens. I don't remember if it ever got used, so I might as well post it here.

I feel that it sums up my feelings on the mind-body problem that has been bothered philosophers and other wankers for the last two thousand years. Your brain IS your mind. Yes, this means that happiness, sadness, love, hate, jealousy and disgust are all in your head. They are the result of the interactions between chemicals and electricity in your brain. These connections make up who you are and how you react to the world. However, that doesn't make your emotions any less real. Many times, these emotions are the only real thing we have. Don't let that freak you out too much.
