    The greatest thing we will ever learn is to love and be loved in return.

    So how exactly does one learn do to this?
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Just out of curiousity, did you read the capitals or the whole thing first?

    Again, the Order vs. Chaos argument. True chaos is subjective to those who know of their own order. Ordinarily species didn't need "love" and would simply fend for themselves. Most species in the universe did this and as a result, humans classified this style of living as "animal." The "Law of the Jungle" was a trend we noticed in biology, so we made it a rule. It even seemed more logical to us, because it matched our observations of how life behaves, but the mistake was that we had never seen another creature that could love, so any species other than our own that did this was assumed to have been destroyed or evolutionarily unlikely to ever exist until now.

    The mistake was that we didn't integrate the exception, or humans, into the rule, or nature. We used this new idea of "love" to support the assertion that we, in fact, were the dominant species, destined to bring new order into the universe. Our kind, a much more social one than most other species, would effectively elevate the universe to a higher level of order and complexity. Of course, complexity is extremely subjective. In fact, the idea of complexity doesn't really make sense intrinsically, only extrinsically when weighed against things that don't serve a "function."

    This second mistake is to say that things of "lower complexity" are not serving any "function." Any thing that exists, in any state, is serving the function of doing whatever it is doing.
    If anything in the universe happens, it is considered logical in the universe because the universe encompasses everything that ever happens in the sense that we know it. It's sort of circular reasoning, but there is no other way to apply such broad generalizations to anything so large.

    So if human "love" creates "structure," this "structure" is just part of the "entropy" of the universe. The question deals with the subjective specifics of a physical science and attempts to attach it to the grand scheme of existence, even though all things are equally connected to the scheme of existence.

    A classic.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    It's more than a feeling.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Love is not caring if someone sneezes in your face.

    Love is having no restraints when it comes to the other person,it's reckless pouring yourself completely into the other person,without inhibition or fear and hoping they'll do the same.
