We are emotional cameras because we picture other people in our emotions, which are in our desire to receive.
The desire to receive pleasure is our nature and it makes us perceive everyone and everything via how we can enjoy from them.
For instance, if we look at another person’s face, we might register only their eyes and their smile, because we might enjoy those facial features the most. We do not acquire an exact physical photograph of the other person, like how police piece together facial composites, but we build an emotional impression based primarily on what we enjoy from the other person and their features.
Other than people, we also perceive animals, plants and objects similarly—in the desire to receive pleasure, which is ultimately what we are and where we perceive our reality.
