Description: This article accompanies a poster presentation on the theoretical derivation of EMOTION-I model for emotional feel of sensation. The first of a series of emotional models called "Emotional Model of The Theoretical Interpretation Of Neuro-processing" (EMOTION-I) is derived theoretically to address the origin of emotions in evolutionary process. It is based on first principles without any 'a priori' assumptions about what emotions are and what they are used for. The model is derived based on the necessary principles essential for the survival of an autonomous system (either an organism or an autonomous robot) when interacting with the real-world environment.
