I think Michelle's post is so good we underestimate it. R is right to imo. But you Necromancer speak my language. This is what I see from my experience. I think we also underestimate how fragile the brain is and balanced, that even as it appears is affected by what we see, do, or simply experience. Where does objectivity lie. How strong are emotions. Emotion seem very specific. That's how delicate it is, now we're talking about something physical which we know science confirms to. If I had to measure such a thing I experience sadness many times more significant then another. it could be anger, it could be love. I am speaking from the perspective of experience. From experience I can relate what is said, in others I cannot. We all can understand that.

You bring up a very good point and the organ as an example. So do we look at one point or talk about the larger region when both are right. It is not one or the other but both. Both are right. I can't remember the specific process but that process is important to. It is the limbic system where emotion arise and control emotion. It includes numerous other organs we're familiar with. One affects the other, the body talking to itself. This is how you feel, this is how you're suppose to feel. It's kinda like a wow moment once you see it's truth. Stress for instance affects this interconnectivity and communication.

Metaphysics has opened our understanding of the process and shows the impossible complexity and the smallness of the process. Where it operates. I use the example of the body and the effect of a tiny insect bite. We know some insects are toxic and if they puncture the skin and inject a drop of venom how it affects us. The smallest drop has a cascading effect that can disable the entire body and is a bit crazy until it recovers. It affects in such large ways, in magnitude. Well the brain is like that to. Even the tiniest amount that I'd be interested to know if it is measured in parts per billion that make us think there is a large flood of proteins that have such major affect when, yes it happened from one single thing that affect everything. We begin to realize it works as it's designed to.

There have been times I have said why did I do that realizing the unbalance or act, such as telling a lie. I don't see the soul relevant but I do see the body relevant. I think this is a very important subject. This small organ affects the entire system which block certain thoughts emotionally until balance is achieved again. Nice post Michelle and informative. Here I'm wondering is there disagreement?

An issue that has always intrigued me.

In my opinion, this is a highly complex one with many layers to it.

One must understand the human in it's totality before understanding the context of a psychopath.

Many layers to an individual: celestial, anatomical, chemical, biological, ancestral, sexual, physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, environmental, cultural, and societal. All of them operate interdepently of one another. All play a role. Must understand this.

Asking a psychopath for remorse is equivalent to asking a diabetic to produce insulin or one whom suffers from mental retardation to explain quantum physics.

It's an absurdity. What we can do is address it differently: both personally & collectively.

We must delve deeply into causes/dynamics that led to this particular outcome rather than just the outcome and then apply some arbitrary expectation we have.

We don't look to a plant whose buds never bloomed, wilted, and shrouded with weeds & ask why it's not as fragrant or as vibrant as another? No, we look to source. The Sun, Moon, Earth, Soil, Light, Darkness, Proper Nurtrion, etc. for the answers. We must also understand there are many roses in the garden and to appreciate the intrinsic beauty & value of all.

Just because a being may be "defective" in a certain way does not negate that beings value to humanity, society, or the universe. Just because a being may not be able to "feel/emote" doesn't mean they can't connect to a higher power or find another means to identify with the universe.

This is never to say said actions or being is acceptable. However, through understanding we can find a way to heal, unify, and evolve.
