Belief and emotional gravity; the opposing poles of the mental universe

Gravity curving the fabric of space

The ever present force of gravity governs the movement of objects and dictates the posture of living creatures, plants and animals. We tend take gravity for granted and only become aware of its importance when we lose our balance or changes of speed due to acceleration or breaking. However, the mental world responds to and regulated by a temporal field, which leads to a temporal, or emotional gravity. Gravity underlies material existence and temporal gravity gives a stable foundation for our mental world. In fact, because constant change can cause extreme insecurity, which can lead to madness. In material systems gravity acts via interaction. Temporal (emotional) gravity also triggers interaction through emotions. Just like gravity is a pressure, characteristic of the positive spatial curvature regions of material aggregates, temporal gravity is a temporal pressure that forms the restrictions of society. Thus, emotional gravity depends on social environment. (In animals temporal gravity is a characteristic of the ecosystem.) For this reason, enormous individual differences in emotional gravity among animals and people exist. As matter settles on according to its density and mass, people also tends to separate in society according to their emotional gravity. Although large temporal gravity is constricting, its absence produces carelessness and superficiality. The pressure of high temporal gravity triggers negative attitude and negative outlook, which overwhelms with details, making problems—even the easiest ones—difficult.

Characteristics of high temporal gravity people:
  •  Critical tendency, resistance to change
  •  Enthusiastic to start projects, but not having patience to finish them 
  •  The tendency for highly repetitious language
  •  They can be easily cheated by empty promises
  •  They are characterized by large emotional swings (personal attacks, violence followed by regret and overly nice behavior) 

Emotional gravity also depends on individual characteristics and even age. The flexibility and resiliency of young people indicates small emotional gravity. Although they adapt well to changes, including fashion trends, boundless joy and excruciating pain make the emotional life of children intense. Temporal gravity increases with age, which also mutes the intensity of emotions, so the difference between joy and pain decreases. Since higher brain frequencies are deterministic and form detail oriented mental processing, they correlate with a contracting mind. This is a highly uncertain mental world, which is based on fear, so it requires constant assurances of safety. However, seeking safety remains futile and hopeless over the long run. Gravity is a conserved in space. Temporal gravity is also a stable force, which gives energy to hold on, to maintain old habits, relationships and our belongings. These are mental clutches that give an artificial confidence, pride. People with high emotional gravity often resort to criticism in an inherent search to test the temporal limitation of the environment. Their insecurity and neediness prompts them onto a constant search to increase control over their immediate environment, which can lead to abusive tendencies.

Opposite to gravity, belief and trust is a source of emotional strength and prerequisite of intellect. An expanding, trusting mind gravitates toward positive emotional states. Even suffering and pain has a meaning for them. Belief is an inner confidence of trust, which gives courage, it allows selfless and altruism when others are in trouble and even in difficult, adverse consequences it permits adherence to moral principles. Although open and more trusting, emotionally stable people cannot be easily cheated. Belief is the stable intellectual ground, on which to formulate a system of thought in the mind. This organizational reflection of the world and society is called world view. What is your world view? Does it support your goals with trust and confidence or does it undermine your future by filling you with hesitation and fear?
