Perception isn't just a simple chain of neurological events. A new study from the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California suggests that emotion can actually affect perception--like, say, a Jewish person observing a neo-Nazi.
When you observe someone, there's an event called mirroring that happens in the brain--your brain's neurons activate by what your eyes observe when you observe another person. Previous studies have shown that physical properties, like race or similarity to yourself, can affect how your neurons behave. This study sought to activate emotion, by having a panel of Jewish men observe others. Half of those others were identified as neo-Nazis, half as "likable and open-minded." And the neurological response was totally different! Seeing those they disliked, the neo-Nazis, caused a different pattern of activity--although, interestingly, only when the "neo-Nazis" moved. But it changes the way we see other people--those we hate appear to move slower, for example. Really interesting stuff. The article is published in the journal PLoS One.
That's a natural survival behavior. Our brains devote more processes to observing things we believe can do us harm. The slowing of perceived movement is likely related to an adrenal response caused by the elevated emotions.
Imagine the mind of a person, who with prior thinking, made a choice to clearly write or have tattooed 'HATE' on one's fingers, so they whole would will see this in advance.
They want the world to know, they hate and they hate everyone as it speaks to all. Then gives the impression stay away from this person or something bad will happen to you. Seems like a powerful defense and yet giving warning so not to be harmed, by keeping their distance from the individual. So at the tail end of the projection leads to belief in a small way, they still do possess some compassion for the world. They really have trust issues.
Otherwise if the guy really hated you or everyone, he bashes you over the head and not gives you warning.
Thanks for explaining why all Muslims hate us. You might think your a racist but your neurons know differently!
