: What are emotions caused by?... chemical interactions in ones brain. What is ones brains made of?... matter. So emotions also follow the laws of physics through the biochemical interaction of our brain with our environment.

I think the real question here is, Is contiousness a product of the laws of physics?" You can try to put a biochemical answer to the emotions question but there is more to it than a chemical reaction there is the "experiance" of it. What is that? How can all that "I" do/am simply be exactly the same as what you do/are, ie simply the laws of physics? If this were true, woudn't there only be 1 "contiousness"?
