How do we have emotions? ?

So I’ve just been thinking about how we humans have emotions. Everything is made out of elements which have atoms. So our brain that produces emotions is made out of atoms. So how do atoms produce emotions in the brain

    Perhaps it'd be more useful to consider brain cells, nerve impulses, or particular areas of the brain instead of individual atoms. Ever heard the saying you can't see the forest for the trees?

    Indeed. The same thing goes for any sense we experience (qualia). This is called The hard problem of consciousness.

    Animals have emotions too.
