I have been trying to figure out what I want to do.
From one of my favorite substacks:
So far we have reasons to suspect that our emotional brain drives two aspects of our human nature: our moral compass and also our memory recall. What other areas of our nature could be under the dominion of our affect? How is our modern world with our constant inundation of emotionally charged media demanding our attention affecting our brains? Maybe it’s time to take our emotional brain more seriously than our rational brain in our society—especially as we try to think of ways to make our world a better place to live. The answers are unclear but interesting nonetheless.
