    According to Of Grandeur: The Law of Emotional Balance, all of your beliefs are based on your emotional balance. You became attracted to specific ideas or beliefs because of the role those beliefs or ideas play in your emotional balance. Your beliefs can be permanently changed when other sources of emotions are permanently changed as well. People can change their beliefs just like they can fall out of love with one person and in love with another person.

    The world is filled with billions of followers of different religions and to each person is correct for having those beliefs because those beliefs keep them more emotionally balanced than they would be without those beliefs. You may not believe the empirical evidence provided by scientists because if you were to believe in it you may become permanently emotionally unbalanced based on your other beliefs.

    We have specific beliefs to cope with our environments. Some people cope with the sadness caused by their environment by using intoxicating substances, other cope with their environments by following specific beliefs.

    Life is all based on one simple law and that is the Law of Emotional Balance. The Law of Emotional Balance claims that every single person will experience as much happiness as they do sadness before they are allowed to die and this mandatory requirement is what has led people to have religious beliefs.

    The Law of Emotional Balance is a conservation law. A charge particle can't turn into pure energy until it has become neutral, just like a charged particle, a person can't die until they are emotionally neutral.

    No insult intended but that makes no sense at all.

    Even though we may never be able to perfectly prove the Law of Emotional Balance because quantifying all emotions, a person will experience in their lifetime, is impossible, that does not mean that we can't build an extremely strong case to support emotional balance as a law. Even without a way of quantifying all emotions we can still determine if the Law of Emotional Balance is still a possibility or not. In the book Of Grandeur: The Law of Emotional Balance, falsifiable experiments have been added to build a case in support of emotional balance as a law. The fact also remains that in order for the Law of Emotional Balance to be true, certain base requirements would have to be met. The universe would need to have uncertainty programmed into it because without uncertainty, we could predict the future and take in only happiness and no sadness and violate the Law of Emotional Balance. We would need to have dreams where people's defenses are dropped so they could be forced to experience specific emotions to prevent the Law of Emotional Balance from being violated. We would need physiological balance in cells "Homeostasis" because cells are also living organisms that comprise other organisms like humans. We would need unusual/unique cultural structures with flexibility "Sins/penance/religion, laws, punishments, government...... The list goes on... The fact remains that all of the base requirements for the Law of Emotional Balance are in place so why not try to test to see if emotional balance is maintained by a law... Conservation laws prevent charged particles from turning back into pure energy until they are neutral. Emotions and electricity may very well be directly tied together so it is not a too much of a stretch, to say that there is a conservation law that governs emotions. There may very well be a reservoir of emotional energy and this reservoir is forced to follow the Law of Emotional Balance and is what humans have come to worship as God.

    "a person can't die until they are emotionally neutral"

    So people who are unbalanced emotionally (hello del) can't die?

    That's what his "law" states. But then he goes on to state his "law" cannot ever be proven perfectly which begs the question if he understands the meaning of a "law".
