There are certain books/articles/movies/comics/etc. that I find I often refer back to for specific ideas. It’s important to cite your sources, so I’ll try to document some of them here.
How Emotions are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett (henceforth HEAM and LFB). This is a book that really changed how I perceive my experience of the world, and some of the concepts from it really seem to support concepts from other books that have made a big impression on me.
