SMBC Comics (Emotion) presented the formula

$$ext{strength of your emotional reaction} = frac{ ext{emotional power of an event}}{ ext{your distance from the event}}.$$

It feels intuitively correct, but "distance" seems oversimplified in the current digital age. Thus, I'm curious if there is actually a mathematical model along these lines.

Question: Is there a mathematical model for the "strength of your emotional reaction" to the effect of SMBC Comics's formula?

Honestly, I don't even know what to search for here. I put emotional reaction model into PubMed, but it didn't help.
