Come on, we all base our emotional reactions on whatever we have experienced in life. So I have to disagree, unless we have no memory we do, indeed base our reactions on if someone experienced something that exists someplace else. How else does one judge anything? This isn't death of a loved one, it's the existence of a technical situation which really should have no emotional connection at all other than recollection of past events. Negative reactions, other then core emotions, are usually based on lack of knowledge of how things work."I wonder why anyone would find the name thing creepy? They have been doing that at Universal on the ET ride since it opened."
Most people don't base their emotional reactions on whether something exists someplace else.
