SI2_1.jpgSometimes we have destructive feeling toward objects, when our emotion heightened or we want to express something. Then we might deform objects, by throwing or twisting them and feel pleased, for instance. This sublimation seems to be caused by auditory impression rather than visual information. If those destructive actions don't cause any sound or noise, all the spice would have gone out of our life.
