On the contrary, I think it's one of the few things that doesn't seem to make sense at all :p From celebrities to sheepish first grade girls to normal adults the science or biology which provokes love from early to later years has never been fathomed.

Love makes you wonder if angels ever treaded on earth and as they forsake this wretched place absent-mindedly left such emotion behind.

Lust is a porous type of love, love is impermeable.

Love is a truth that makes all other truth seem forever false in comparison.

Love makes two say "I do" and can fulfill the dream of eternal ecstacy or can turn the "I do" into "Never" at any given time.

Love is a fickle perception which is never truly gotten.

Maybe their love was strong that they felt if their love for someone else was shattered then so would their love for themselves, and then life would not be worth living. But there are many reasons someone would do that, and I would rather not generalize on such a serious matter as suicide.


Love is a neurological bath of endorphins.

I was talking about the negative side of love which can result in depravity... Love does have an evil side.. It can be used to manipulate, extortionate and inflict emotional pain.
Love is as you said, "omnipresent and knowing no hate", but ironically it can also cause hate and promote envy (look at Shakespeare tragedies and The Count of Monte Cristo)
I agree with your post Lote, but I also believe love can be very deceptive.

Yeah, Adol, I too tried my hand at an alternative depiction of the concept of love, but seemingly that's not what people want in this thread :p Which is a shame, because Love as a divinely wonderful feeling is a bit washed out in my opinion, and a modernist, pessimist, cynical, humorous and provocative approach to it is to me more refreshing ;)

Love is something invented with the intention to misrepresent the true nature of debauched activity, and a means in which to lure young girls into marital enslavement. wait, that's not very poetic now, is it. :blush:

okay... love is the sheen off sun-drenched swallow's wings that pierces hearts and adds opaqueness to the deepest recesses of our translucent souls with the purest shared spiritual clarity available to humankind. maybe.

Yes. I can understand that. "Love" for many becomes a manipulation game - a mere power-play between the Weak and the Strong. But concept of Love is totally opposite to that. Love is actually an equaliser between the Weak and the Strong.



Love is as you said, "omnipresent and knowing no hate", but ironically it can also cause hate and promote envy (look at Shakespeare tragedies and The Count of Monte Cristo) I agree with your post Lote, but I also believe love can be very deceptive.

Perhaps we can look at it differently. We can think of love as being the ONLY emotion. All other emotions are gradation of that emotion. So hate would be at the opposite end of this gradation scale. Most of us perhaps are hovering at the middle of this scale - sometimes going towards the extreme then coming back to the centre again. When we experience a moment of pure love we have moved off the centre towards love itself. This "transcendental moment of happiness" however only lasts for a moment because we as mere mortals can't sustain it for very long and thus we come back to hover at the the centre again or move towards the extreme.

Love equates the 'Strong' to the 'Weak'? Geez, I always thought the strong and the weak were diametrically opposite in all aspects of natural tendencies. Examples: Kings and Peasants, Wives with vocations Men with no vocations, Men with vocations wives with no vocations, Lions and street mice, King Cockroaches and Ants, The 'Strong' and the 'Weak'. Catch my drift?

Love is the only emotion? I must say your celestial reasoning transcends my tattered, rodent brain. According to your analysis of love, we are all on a moderate scale of it? Or at least most of us? Do you mean that we all have the ability to love, yet we aren't always excercising it because the 'chance' is not there at that moment?

I think you should clip your fair angel wings and float back down to earth loverboy. Experiencing a moment of pure love? Sounds like something Nicholas Sparks would say if you ask me. Is this 'pure love' sex or are you going to delve into more obfuscated mysticism to explain this point?

You're a lot smarter than I am Lote, so don't take anything I say seriously. Thank-you and have an exceptional day :D.

I think what he (I am not sure if you -- Lote, are a guy or a girl) meant was -- Love can be a common ground for both the strong and the weak. All the examples that you gave can have love as the common emotion, a level at which they can relate despite their differences. Opposites attract. :D

Even as a King you can't force someone to love you. Thus King become powerless. Hence Love is the equaliser between the weak and the strong.

Please no self-effacement here. It is only a discussion we are having - nothing serious :-)



According to your analysis of love, we are all on a moderate scale of it? Or at least most of us?


Yes, I would like to think so.



Do you mean that we all have the ability to love....


Yes. I would like to think so.



, yet we aren't always excercising it because the 'chance' is not there at that moment?


We all have to learn the lessons of love in our lives in our own way to understand what love means. Some of our experiences either lead us to the extreme - anger, hate, despair and other experiences leads us to joy, happiness and hope. But both experiences teaches something about what love means.



I think you should clip your fair angel wings and float back down to earth loverboy.


LOL :-) And if we did that then there won't be any Wordsworth, Shakespeare, Keats, Shelley etc :-) It is with "fair angel" wings that we rise above the messy contradictions of our lives and see something more meaningful than we could do with earth-bound eyes.


"What a piece of work is man!
How noble in reason!
how infinite in faculties!
in form and moving, how express and admirable!
in action how like an angel!
in apprehension, how like a god!




Experiencing a moment of pure love? Sounds like something Nicholas Sparks would say if you ask me. Is this 'pure love' sex or are you going to delve into more obfuscated mysticism to explain this point?


It is this: Love seeketh not itself to please.

Take away Sex factor and whatever remains - if anything - would be Love.

But LOVE is not Sex. Take away the Sex and whatever remains - if anything - would be love.

Yes, that too but not quite. We could have common ground on many things.

It is just that even as a King you can't force someone to love you. Hence love is the great eqauliser between the strong and the weak.
