Your left brain and right brain meet when you realize emotions are data. They are sensations in response to stimuli, literally trying to signal something to you.

One thing I didn't get about technical fields as a kid is that rigor is the standard ideas have to meet, not the source of them. The source is often the cheesiest sort of guessing.
