I disagree with th following theory.

All emotions are really derived from two core emotions. Those two core emotions of which all other emotions trickle down from are fear and love.

I agree with that. Most will probably reject it on the basis of a romantic definition of love. Fear, well that is the root emotion of most, if not, all negative emotions.

Hmm...I think the obvious flaw is that there are emotions that cannot be clearly attributed to either fear or love. Boredom? Frustration?

Plus, if all emotions are linked together, all the way back to fear and love, why say they are are derived from those particular two? You could start from any emotion and claim that they all trace back to that one somehow. It seems arbitrary.
