I’m hung up on the word accurate. What does it even mean in this context? It seems clear to me that the thing that is unequivocally joy (the brain scan – I assume it’s a scan of someone experiencing joy) is technically more “accurate” than a thing that causes joy in a good amount of people. Isn’t it kind of like saying, which is the more accurate picture of fire: a picture of a raging inferno, or a picture of a match? A match causes fire, but it is not an accurate picture of fire.
Those who are carefully pondering the semantics of this post CLEARLY aren’t feeling it and are thus missing the point in it’s entirety, that perhaps some things are beyond the explanations of science and language.
True, though I don’t think anyone is asserting any kind of argument in this comment thread.These comments are more like a series of honest musings, much like this post. Still, my sass can defy the logic of “argumentative techniques” or rather, invalidate them.
