    Default What is Love?

    But A series of Biochemical reactions that drive people together to marrY and reproDuce in Order to produce stroNg offspring in a safe and nourishing environmenT? How qUeeR is iT that love May simply Exist to further the lifespan of the DiscOrdaNT existence of our species? and for what purpose? to further the lifespan of a species that is dancing the border between Heimal nUcleaR fallouT and Magnificent yEt seemiNgly out-of-grasp utOpia? to further the Misanthropic crimes that have been cOmmited against ouRselvEs? how inconsiderate of nature.







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

    If love is biology, why does biology inspire love amoung sterile individuals? Surely biology would know that the chemical factory was wasted in such an effort. Why would sterile individuals even be capable of producing the sexual hormones?

    In spite of the idea that love may be but a series of reactions...

    Whether we choose to bind our hearts in action, in deed, is up to us.
    A creation of our own.
    Nothing but an exercise of illusionary will, maybe, though an extension of our deepest selves regardless.
    Two separate beings, alien in time and space, but bound as one.

    Nothing could be more powerful than this overcoming of difference...
    Only love is more powerful than the forces of time and space.

    Only love reaches beyond distance and beyond death.
    Though the future may be dark and unknown, love is our hope.
    Hope so important, it is wired into our very DNA in the guise of mere biochemical reactions.
    Elegant and incredible, material and immaterial, bound as one like lovers.
    Remarkable is the beauty of life.

    Interesting point but, that suggests the unconscious actually knows precisely what is happening with its own body. If this were true, how come people who have had half of their arm amputated can still move/use the remainder of their arm? Its a waste of Oxygen to be honest, it would be more advantageous for it to reroute blood so as to not replenish the useless cells in the stump of the arm, slowly allowing it to decay away (also, what of phantom pains?).

    If an individual were sterile, I would imagine that the brain would simply keep creating more of those chemicals despite damage to a sex organ, for that's what the brain is literally programmed to do. It's almost frightening how the brain acts like a computer in a sense; a computer will continue a calculation even when suffering major damage, and will sometimes not stop until the calculation has been totally corrupted or the complete destruction of the computer.

    Or, we are more than just a chemical factory and simply dont know what we haven't discovered yet. But hey you're welcome to stop your understanding of life at that point.

    Biochemical reactions may explain why people think love is a feeling, but when feelings fade, then what is love?

    Love is:
    - admiration
    - respect
    - reverence
    - caring
    - affection
    - adoration
    - selfless
    - self-sacrifice

    Those that don't understand this deeper meaning, end up divorced.
