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 riding in an elevator. 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. It is so important that constant change can cause such insecurity, which leads to madness. Temporal (emotional) gravity is a force acting through emotions. Just like gravity is characteristic of the positive spatial curvature regions of material aggregates. Temporal gravity, which is the degree of restriction in our lives, is specific to society. (In animals temporal gravity is a characteristic of the ecosystem.) Individual differences in emotional gravity among animals and people can be enormous. Although large temporal gravity is constricting, its absence produces carelessness and superficiality. As matter settles on according to its density and mass, people also tends to separate in society according to their emotional gravity. People with high temporal gravity have the tendency for enhanced brain frequencies due to negative attitude and negative outlook, which overwhelms them with details, making problems—even the easiest ones—difficult. Criticism is just a tool in an inherent search of sensitivities, soft points by people with high emotional gravity to test the temporal limitation of their environment.

Characteristics of high temporal gravity people:
  •  Critical tendency, resist 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 depends on social environment, 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 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 requires constant assurances of safety. However, seeking safety remains futile and hopeless over the long run. The mental world is based on fear, therefore although these ideas appear threatening, they have no lasting power. The temporal field is conserved
, emotional gravity gives energy to hold on, to maintain old habits, relationships and our belongings. These are mental clutches that give an artificial confidence, pride. So people with a high temporal gravity constantly try to increase their control over their immediate environment, leading to neediness, controlling and even 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 us courage, it allows us to be selfless and altruistic when we see others in trouble and it allows us to stick to our moral principles, even if we face difficult, or adverse consequences. 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?
