Quote from Star Trek:
Lieutenant Commander Data: Captain, I believe I am feeling... anxiety. It is an intriguing sensation. A most distracting...
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Data, I'm sure it's a fascinating experience, but perhaps you should deactivate your emotion chip for now.
Lieutenant Commander Data: Good idea, sir.
Lieutenant Commander Data: Done.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Data, there are times that I envy you.
My emotions are getting the better of me these days. I think it is time to deactivate my emotion chip.
Waking up in the middle of the night because I think that I know what I will be facing the next day is a waste of good sleeping hours.
Feeling powerless over a situation triggers all sorts of emotions. Unless I can take what I am feeling and utilize it to regain some control over a situation, the emotion overrides common sense.
As Captain Jean-Luc Picard says, "...perhaps you should deactivate your emotion chip for now".
Good idea, sir.
