The theory would be that people copy emotions from
eachother. In my own personal experience of watching
myself on video I have noticed that many individual
look unlike me and very much like people I have known
my past who have had emotional influences on me. If
could correlate this statistically you could get a better
picture of how "thoughts" really happen, that they are
original in the way we are conscious of now but are
traded around in a relatively unconscious economy.
