STRP Scenario #8 Being Emotional
In the last millions of years, the scope of our human experience was little more than our direct surroundings. Our brains are still stuck in that setting. In the meantime, our world has expanded to a globalized, borderless heap of stimuli, complex information, alternative truths, including a global pandemic. The world is extremely complex, and we can merely experience snippets of the whole. What connects us? Is it our shared feeling of disorientation, ecological fear, or sadness? How do we mourn? Is it possible to emotionally connect with other species and things? Should we as a species claim the right to be unhappy?
