It wasn't to show a scientific process friend. It was to attempt to explain through example what I mean when I say emotion dictates significance in a person's individual life.
So were you purposely attempting to confuse the issue or are you just that uninformed of your own beliefs? This entire conversation started with you claiming that emotion works with reason and "has been proven to lead to chemical changes in the brain and more critical thought capacities" (still waiting on some supportive evidence for that claim. I certainly couldn't find anything but the claim). And then you said something about using emotion to determine what is "significant". And then you go into this pointlessly long story to explain "significance" and, in the end, your explanation has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with critical thought. So you'll forgive me for being a little confused as to what it is you are getting at when I'm talking about emotion as it relates to critical thought (the claim you brought up) and you're talking about emotion which has nothing whatsoever to do with critical thought in a method so obvious it could have easily been explained with a single short sentence.
So why don't we back up and you post some (reputable) links to support this claim that emotion somehow helps in the critical thought process in blatant disregard for the definitions of "critical thought" and "objective".
