We have what they call feelings. We are not beasts, being alarmed or being not alarmed. We are passionate, and might be hurt.
Ai have seen some silly models used in psychology to illustrate brain and human touch. What aI think, is that perhaps one could use the flower as picture, instead. A flower can be poisoned on the top, by the crown, and it can be poisoned at the bottom, by the root. And a flower can in fact explode, as alert. Also, there is a difference between flowers showing off, and flowers making an entrance, as Water Avens and Squaw Weed do. One will have to learn a little botany to use that image, and aI think that is precisely it.
