Absolutely, I don't think anyone could question this. Sensations are so
filtered and processed that the sensorium we experience is pretty much just
an elaborate fabrication of the brain... and no perception,
memory-association or thought comes naked into our qualia - they all have
some emotional dressing. Plus, I'm guessing that all the background
subconsciousnesses (I mean that literally - all the potential Identities
that don't quite make all the way to full conscousness) have their own
emotional baggage that surely has a significant affect upon us.
