Emotions make us human, that much is certain! For instance, when you find out you’re eating pizza tonight, you’re overcome with joy; when you see someone dating your crush, you become jealous; when you find out that your favorite tv show stops airing soon, you get sad; when you’re all alone in a dark cave with bloodthirsty creatures of the night, you get scared, and when you find out there’s only one skittle left in the bag, you become ANGRY!
Emotions can make life enjoyable or unbearable, and they complement each other in a certain way. But sometimes, it can be difficult to control your emotions. Take for instance eighteen-year-old Gijs from Bilthoven, a guy who is seemingly in control of his emotions and comes across as an extremely rational person, but finds it difficult to discern what dictates his actions sometimes: his rationale, or his emotions?
Gijs recently graduated from high school and is currently taking a year off to work and to figure out what he wants out of life. Part of his quest involves a certain degree of introspection: “I have been thinking about the challenges I face in life often, which includes me figuring out who’s in charge when I make certain decisions: my emotions or my rational self. It’s important to figure this out as you’ll have to live with the consequences of your actions every day”, says Gijs.
When I asked Gijs how he would tackle this challenge with superpowers, he didn’t need more than a few seconds to come up with an elaborate answer. “I would like the ability to literally control my emotions and be in charge of my actions all the time”, Gijs adds.
In order to make this happen, we have to bring Gijs’ insides outside. In a non-graphical way, of course. Gijs is able to materialize an emotional control pad at will thanks to his five little helpers.
I think I’ve seen them before, actually. Have you?
