    yeah i have a problem with that too, how does your mind exactly know when to get conditioned and how to get conditioned? just after seeing a picture made from colours? does it know that this set of colours are supposed to make him sad? happy? angry?

    Example:
    X color is a phenomena that you are exposed, the X color provoke you at a cognitive and unconscious level, this provocation is made by the production of chemistry and sinapsis in your brain made by the exposition to the phenomena. Then your decision to do or to feel after been exposed to that phenomena, es just the reflex of the process your brain had in the moment of the exposition.

    We could say you saw your father die in a young age, you related the color red (blood?) to that memory, so when you see red or blood, under X conditions your brain trigger the memory (or the feeling of the memory) and so you become a victim of causality.

    I'm talking about cognition, not emotions. if our brain can only understand things based on colours then if someone with a clourful shirt murders your whole family, you'd be experincing the greatest joy ever. im asking how can the brain (a set of chemical reactions as you call it) understand the meaning behind this set of colours and something that s by no means in direct interaction with...
