    Interesting. Thank you for your response. I wonder, do you think it is possible that repression of emotions from past experiences can be brought into focus and inadvertantly released by adjusting one's diet? I take a wholistic look at the human body, including the mind. So, at least so far, I see no reason to separate mind from body. Thus what affects the body (both positively and negatively) affects the mind. Do you think it would be wrong to suggest that moving to a healthier diet may inadvertently affect an automatic purging of the mind in order to bring about better overall health?

    I had a week or so of crankiness after going primal. Now I find that almost nothing gets me too upset. Not sure what happened or why. Maybe it is just part of the process of the body re-setting itself.

    I have had a propensity in my life to just eat shit like that up. I have spent the last few years trying to be cognizant of when I am about to propel out into the stratosphere and make really bad decisions based on pseudoscience and delusion. Aside from getting a good chuckle, remembering your quick assessment here will absolutely prod me in the right direction. Thanks, Knifegill.

    All science is Pseudoscience. Science attempts to explain a system that currently exist that we do not understand and feel we need a better understanding on. We are not creating truth with science but rather explaining the truth that already exists. For every theory that is currently held as true there are probably 10 times that many that were discovered to be bunk.

    Once you leave the realm of atomic calculation and enter the realm of emotion you are way past Kansas. We want to "believe" with all we are that 1+1=2 and A^2 + B^2 = C^2 , but it "taint necessarily so"

    the earth is not flat
    the lipid hypothesis is bullshit
    and the mind and emotions are so freaking complex that all of the greatest minds who have ever studied it honestly scratch their collective noggins and can be best summed up by the phrase - "fuck if i know"

    Language is an abstract representation of emotional communication just as mathematics is an abstract representation of the universal principles. As in mathematics there are constructs and ideals we are still grappling with and have no answers too.

    so unless any of you have the answer to P versus NP in there hip pocket...... or a specialization in neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry

    I wouldn't say that, but I could see various chemicals in your system temporarily changing your hormones or your brain chemistry.

    Ask a woman what it's like to have severe PMS - you know you're not being reasonable but your emotions are out of control. It's very difficult to reason away emotions, and many of them have a chemical basis.
