Artificial Emotion, Emotional Energy, Function of Basic Emotions, Intellectual Region and Intellectual Object, Semi-intellectual Region and Social Obj, Non-intellectual Region and Non-intellectual Objec
The author has proposed a new theory: the Tion–Emo Theory (TET) [1, 2] The TET concept makes it possible to build artificial emotions because the TET is a simple system and provides an organised structure with a nucleon that controls the emotional scheme with the self object. This emotional system seems to depend on three objects that are particular to three regions: the intellectual object (IO) in the intellectual region, the social object (SOO) in the semi-intellectual region and the self object (SEO) in the non-intellectual region [1]Connecting these three objects at their different levels of function appears to be a requirement for forming a self-sustainable system and producing emotion. The system needs two forces, the positive IO and the negative SEO; the SOO is necessary to mediate between the two. Self-survival hierarchy censorship systems regulate all survival matters, and the emotional energy that gives rise to the system is underlie by the SEO . Social hierarchy censorship sorts and regulates the social information that is also regulated by the SEO. Physiological neural network research supports the TET [2].
