Emotions can be controlled when they cannot. 6. Emotions have been controlled when they have not. 7. Emotions have been experienced when they have not. 8. Emotions have not been experienced when they have. 9. Interest is present when it is not. 10. Interest is not present when it is. All such pretense is alienative and is evil.
