Peter: The three ways a person can experience the world are

1: cerebral (thoughts); 2: sensate (senses); 3: affective (feelings).

The ability of human beings to have and experience and share feelings or emotions is upheld as the essential difference between human beings and other sentient animals. Our ability to feel love and compassion in particular, is highly esteemed and, to date, is has been necessary to promote and encourage these feelings so as to overcome and negate the innate instinctual fear and aggression that are genetically programmed into us. ‘We are feeling beings’, is often touted as the essential human quality.

Given Humanity’s almost ceaseless state of warfare and endless suffering and sorrow, this is indeed the essential quality of the Human Condition – human beings afflicted by instinctual malice and sorrow. In these current times, to live one’s life affectively – continually churned by instinctually-based passions, emotions and feelings – is to needlessly suffer and to needlessly inflict suffering on others.

It is now possible to eliminate one’s social identity such that one is no longer a member of that largest of all social groups, Humanity, and further, to rid oneself of the grip of instinctual emotions and passions, which is the ending of one’s instinctual ‘self’ or ‘being’. This process leads to a new sensible, sensuous experiencing of the actual world as opposed to the affective and cerebral experience of being a social and instinctual illusionary identity dwelling within the flesh and blood body.

The ending of affective feelings heralds an unparalleled actual personal peace, and one is then contributing in the only way possible to ensuring peace on earth.
