    The other thing I've read about over the years is that neural pathways are created by repeatedly snapping synapses. Is it possible that repeatedly listening to conservatives who evoke emotion (e.g. fear) has created physical change in neural pathways?

    Much of communication is habitual, anyway, as Timothy Leary learned while working with the Palo Alto group (psychologists). No wonder he later advocated tune  out, turn on, and drop out!

    Also, I wonder about the relationship between fear and hate, and if it's possible to interrupt that.

    Interesting stuff! Thanks for mentioning the physical aspect.
