      What really causes our reactions

      What causes our reactions? When something happens that arouses an aggressive reaction, is that the real cause, or just a trigger? If it's just a trigger, then doesn't that generalize that all events have no cause over our emotions? Surely, they do, or else we wouldn't have them in the first place. Does a certain stimuli ever recreate a certain feeling with many past memories that all of a sudden flood in and support your automatic reaction? Is it possible to not be a creature of reaction? Even so called "proaction"...is still reaction. Nothing is original.

      I think that all reactions are a delicate mixture of your concious evaluation of the situation and your subconcious memory.

      The delicate mixture if probably different for everybody like a fingerprint.

      The subject also seems somewhat connected to what people call the "temper" and a persons temper could be the result of the different mixtures of concious and subconcious thoughts. The mixture would also probably not be stationary, but more like a river that is ever changing with the maturing of the brain.
      Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them.

      People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.

      Life isn't a mystery to be solved, but a reality to expierence.

      If we take a look at the human animal so to speak’ you will understand that “all behavior” is learned behavior. And over a period of time the brain forms “memory maps” to stimuli, we advance our concepts of order with these “memory maps”. We develop hierarchal forms of behavior in order to survive within the community.

      Your first reaction normally is a trigger. Which makes sense or you would have to stop any time you ever did anything to think about what your doing. After you think something over however, you can change your mind.

      I am sure everyone has been mad at one point, then later thought back and noticed that they over reacted. Or thought back after thinking about it and decided it wasn't really as big of a deal as they thought.

      I don't think you can stop yourself from reacting but you can make "thinking" your reaction.

      A lot of research suggests that you have no control over any action that you make. You are completely unaware that you commit the act, and then just rationalize that act after the fact.
