Gar Hashar Bapa Hota Hai…

گر حشر بپۃ ہوتا ہے تو حشر بپۃ ہو لینے دو

گر ظلم خفا ہوہے توظلم خفا ہو لینے دو

اے عدل کے ایوانوں کے منصف سن لو

انصاف قتل نۃ ہونے دو انصاف کوزندہ رہنے دو

Infinity and Emotions……..need of a unit of emotions

The topic might look a bit stupid but that’s how emotions are. I was having a discussion with someone regarding emotions and the level of emotions and then during my way back home from my office I was thinking whether emotions do have some quantified value or not, whether their is something you can call infinite love or hatred etc.

Most of the people say love cannot be quantified cannot be compared or put to some axiomatic statement or love is blind(bla bla bla…) But when you look at your life you find  different levels of affection or hatred for different people like you love A more than B or hate C more than D etc and also if you think  you love something more than any thing and at then you say that your love something is infinite it’s again look illogical because that thing which you love more than any thing is actually your absolute reference  of love(similar is the case with other emotions such as hatred,anger etc) such as light for many physicists is absolute reference(and even speed of light has a value i.e. 3 x 10^8 m/s and now people are talking about FTL phenomenon)  means emotions must have some unit direct or indirect for e.g. love may have some relationship with the your brain cells and in the example if you love A more then B means if your love count for B is X number of brain cells utilized for the love portion then for A it must be X+1 or X+ Y depends on how much you love A more than B and similar is the case with comparing two different emotions about a person for e.g. if you hate someone means your hate units for that person have out-numbered your love units for that person and also if you hate C more than D means you have some love portion for C which is more than your love portion for D.

So from the above argument it is proved that emotions are quantifiable and there is a need to develop a unit for emotions.

And perhaps the concept of “infinite emotions” will become obsolete.

Basically the discussion started when I was having my finance class and there was an issue of amortizing the goodwill of a company and the teacher said “there are few analysts who think we cannot have an accurate measure of the worth of goodwill as is the case with emotions because we don’t have a measurable unit to exchange(and to me it looked unusual)”.
