The classical ideal of objectivity – the idea that the world has a definite state of existence independent of our observing it, has been effectively ravaged by quantum physics. “The actual state of existence depends in part on how we observe it and what we choose to see. Objective reality must be replaced by observer created reality.” [Pagels – 1982] The conceptual framework of observer created reality is carried into the macroworld through the functioning of the mind.
These affects or as generally referred to, emotions, are the major methods of human beings of valuing an event or experience and contribute a great deal to the way we experience the world and how we create our world view.
Each of us creates our own reality and decides how we will relate to that reality. The style and attitudes we choose creates our personality, for what are we if not our thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
