Feeling is a kind of thinking

We don’t just think in words – we also recognise that we think in images, sounds, smells, colours, even whole situations (think of dreams you’ve had where whole dimensions of experience are just given to you without being ‘known’ via any sense). The content of our thoughts are not always words. I don’t think with merely the linguistic portion of my brain… I think with my whole body.

Feeling (emotion) is a kind of thinking.
