Feelings are the energy that fuels our thoughts; without them I doubt our brains could function well. It’s plausible to say that we have feelings about everything, and that those feelings spur our thoughts. For instance, the question of what causes a newborn to take its first breath is still being debated; but I believe the answer is, an emotion. Wikipedia says, that “when a newborn is expelled from the birth canal, its central nervous system reacts to the sudden change in temperature and environment” and this causes them to take their first breath. A reaction is a sensation that causes a feeling. If feelings caused us to take our first breath, is it too far fetched to assume that feelings are the reason we are living?
