To Mary "the lurker" and All,

To be or not to be is the question - or is it? I my theoretical world "to
be" is closely related to the concept of the concious. To become concious
of whatever, including design(ing), requires an effort - energy. You are
making whatever was there before unconcious, and you are contacting your
unconcious level to select out from your memory what becomes part of your
being in that instant. Many theoreticians have put labels on that driving
force that you use to form you presence (being) in that given moment. Some
call it motives/motivation, others needs/sense of
unfulfillment/unsatisfaction, others call it emotion. So, when you
appreciate, try to understand or create a design your conciousness is
focused on that design (your being at that moment), and your emotions must
be somehow related to that design and associated thoughts. However, when
your being is focused on making love or other activities your being at that
moment has little to do with design - or can it be combined?. We are
complicated, multidimensional beeings, and can therefore be many things at
different times, but only a limited number of beings in any one given
instance. Emotions are always present, but not necessarily constructive or
positive ones. You can be bored, enraged, envious etc., and even these
emotions can result in designs.....ask any artist. Does this answer your
question: where does emotion and being fit (into psychological theories of
individuals)?

On the other hand I would like to take issue with the other part of your
statement. I believe designing and evaluating designs always involve
emotion and being - not often as you state. How can you possible design or
evaluate (feel - have emotions) without being (mentally present)? On the
other hand design(ing) is also more than just being and emotion. It goes
beyond the individual (groups of designers, users, etc.) and the living
(the material world).

Subject:  thought/action



>From a lurker:

 In the discussion of thought and action, is there
room for "being" and "emotion"?  Are being and emotion
included in both thought and action, or are they something
else, or does it depend on the culture or time period?
To me, design is often about being and emotion.
