Waking Up From the Emotional Dark Age
Since the beginning of our species, and the day humans separated from all other animals, emotions have been classified as a mystical phenomenon. Irrational, illogical, and unexplainable urges which rise within us and force us to act against our better judgment. This era is now coming to an end.
Finally, we are ready to understand the true cause, process, and logic behind our urges. For the first time since our species came down from the trees and became the tailless and upright creatures that we are today, we can finally begin to understand our evolutionary heritage. This is the place where intelligence meets emotion, the place where the modern you and the ancient you become one.
The goal of this project is to understand the entire scope of human emotion and figure out, once and for all, what makes us tick. From the simplest of human emotions to the most complicated ones, from the conscious, all the way to the unconscious. Creating a single coherent model of all emotions, feelings, and urges.
On the way to achieve this goal, this project has come to life. Unlike most of what you’d find on the internet, this project is not a collection of theories and random pieces of information from various sources, but a single unified theory. Bringing together of all emotional states, reactions, and disorders – all united under a single theory.
To create something of actual worth, all articles under this project follow some basic guidelines.
1. Clean, Lean and Distilled to the Minimum
The problem today, at least in my opinion, is that most theories and methods are too cluttered. They do solve a problem, but at the same time, they tend to offer many additional beliefs, conditionings, and habits which might result in other problems. This extra clutter isn’t a necessary part of the model, and in many cases collide with, affect, and even cause other psychological disorders. Consequently, even though such techniques are helpful in treating a certain disorder, the clutter often creates new conditions, leaving the patient in need of prolonged therapy, for years and even decades.
For this reason, all methods offered under this project have been distilled to the minimum. I will not try to influence your behavior by adding any of my personal beliefs, assumptions, and world view. Instead, I will just offer the quickest and most efficient route from a stable and balanced state to a full-blown disorder, and back to balance.
2. Efficient – Best Practice
There are countless healing modalities available today, each focused on a different end goal. Some offering success, some happiness, and others a more productive love life.
I believe that it’s not what you do, but how you do it. Therefore, the intention of this project is not to achieve a specific object or a goal, but achieve maximum optimization and maximum efficiency. All techniques offered under this project were meant to work better, quicker, and more efficiently than any other techniques that are available today.
3. Oneness – It is all one single theory.
For a theory to be true it has to take into account all aspects and explain all behaviors. Moreover, it seems pointless to add more diversity to a world that is already flooded. Many partial theories that can only explain certain aspects, in certain people, under certain conditions have already left humanity overwhelmed and confused. At this stage, it seemed more important to connect the knowledge we already possess rather than just add more variety to it. So I limited myself to one theory and one alone.
It wasn’t an easy task, in the beginning, each new idea required comprehensive adjustments all across the model. Back then, the model had to go through numerous revisions on a daily basis, but eventually, it happened. Eventually, the framework became robust enough to support all emotions, all thoughts, and all beliefs.
4. Testing – It Works!
I do not publish anything which I haven’t experienced myself. The methods and models in this project aren’t just summaries of techniques, nor are they theories about how things should work. Everything I share on this project must first be tested and proven to work. Everything I write comes from my own, first-hand, personal experience, and I don’t publish anything which I haven’t tried on myself first.
And so, I am proud to present to you the Emotional Intelligence Project, not as a set of theories, but as one single theory. This website is not a collection of different articles, but it is a story. Each article describing a different aspect of the same model, all converging to a single explanation. A single model which describes the software that runs on the brain, the mind.
