@hippiechik, yes, it is an emotion. Non physical feeling is emotions. Though, emotions can have an effect on your brain that can result in physical sensations, but the initial “feeling” was an emotional one. And yes, emotions do ALWAYS cloud judgement. Though, some of us are able to ignore or control our emotions and pay strict attention to only the relevant details. It’s not “”part of being human” to do this. It’s a skill that only some learn. Most do not. And integrating the two is not the best choice.
