Shadow banned. The algorithm ignores me.
IG taken away from me. Feels like a cold turkey.
Why would u do that to me,
I have been such a good girl.
Having computer-inflicted synthetical feelings
and fights with a machine makes me cry in bed.
My new type of relationships
– (from when my IG was deleted)
Emotions are not biologically hardwired,
but instead are phenomena that emerge in
consciousness „in the moment“ from more
fundamental ingredients. It is the way our
brain gives meaning to bodily sensations based on past experience. Different core networks all contribute at different levels to feelings such as happiness, surprise, sadness and anger. That means every human being has a different pallet of emotions based on social and cultural origin as well as very individual experiences.
