So, we can almost measure all the inaminate processes in our world. But can the level of emotions be given an upper/lower limit. If a person was born into a wheelchair, they can do 2 things: 1) despair or 2) take as a challenge/uniqueness in life. While the fact of the imobility is known, how much will it take to break the soul of the person?
That may be the cradle of life.
So, if emotional life competes against pattern-matching AI machines, who will win? Perhaps, fear or love will move the emotional being to perceive an anamoly with a better perception than the rote/methodical pattern algorithms an AI will employ to place a value on a new artifact.
Perhaps, heart is infinity. And infinity cannot be measured.
