And that’s Why We Should Laugh…

Laughter is one of the most beautiful ways of expression in humans. It
can record the position of an interview or a particular situation or
even visible incident. This human expression was first discovered by
the French philosopher, Henri Bergson. Several philosophers devoted
his books and articles, most notably the book “Laughter” in which
several aspects and events that makes the human laugh were mentioned,
proposing an analytical and philosophical issue starting from the
following question: “Why do we laugh?”

As a matter of fact, human being is the only creature capable of
laughing as the process of laughing expresses the impact of what
happened in our psyche. The most important thing is that this effect
stems from the brain that may be surprised by an unexpected or a
sudden psychological trauma that tickles the sense of man, who
directly expresses his feeling by laughing.

 

Psychologists emphasize that laughter comes from the human brain,
which analyzes the things that drive us to laugh. However, it must be
said that the human brain, which analyzes the visual logic or audible,
turns to an analysis of the incident then sends messages to the facial
expression which push us to laugh or not. For example, if we are used
to watch the manager entering his office, this phenomenon is a logical
thing we are used to and do not lead us to any sense of laughter,
because it fits with the logic of our brain, which is entering the
office and sitting down. But, if the manager enters the office one day
and fell down on the ground dropping his things everywhere, this
action will directly lead to spark laughter, because the logic path
has been cut and what we didn’t expect had happen.

 

Nevertheless, human tends to laugh especially that laughing approaches
distances between people, moisturizes the atmosphere tension and
creates a sense of satisfaction and peace. However, some people cannot
stop laughing even during the saddest moments and some psychologists
have hailed these people, considering that their brain has a
remarkable capacity in the logical path of events analyses.

 

Perhaps laughter pushed man, since ancient times, to use this
emotional feeling and stick some artistic scenes to maintain a
theatrical comedian work. As people started attending and
participating in the process of collective laughter that makes us feel
the happiness and the beauty of life.
Finally, as the saying goes, “Laugh, And the World Laughs with You,”
we may also convince you to laugh as laughing makes you brighter and
more powerful.
