FEELINGS

What the hell is this thing called feelings?


I have been struggling with this thing for the longest time (well for the new year). WikiPedia defines Feelings as 'the inner body experience.. The word was first used in the English language to describe the physical sensation of touch through either experience or perception. The word is also used to describe experiences other than the physical sensation of touch, such as "a feeling of warmth" and of sentience in general.

While Merriam-Webster  defines it as these:
(1) :  the one of the basic physical senses of which the skin contains the chief end organs and of which the sensations of touch and temperature are characteristic : touch (2) :  a sensation experienced through this sense
b :  generalized bodily consciousness or sensation
c :  appreciative or responsive awareness or recognition
2
a :  an emotional state or reaction feeling
 toward the boy>
b plural :  susceptibility to impression :  sensitivity feeling
s>
3
a :  the undifferentiated background of one's awareness considered apart from any identifiable sensation, perception, or thought
b :  the overall quality of one's awareness
c :  conscious recognition :  sense
4
a :  often unreasoned opinion or belief :  sentiment
b :  presentiment
5
:  capacity to respond emotionally especially with the higher emotions
6
:  the character ascribed to something :  atmosphere
7
a :  the quality of a work of art that conveys the emotion of the artist
b :  sympathetic aesthetic response
