What is Love?

This was my response to a professor’s hypothesis that love is not an emotion, but a response triggered by one of six basic human emotions.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

I beg to differ. First of all, I don’t think “love” itself is a response or output behavior. The output behavior is the “energy” as described by Osama.

Second, I’m of the opinion that “real love” does in deed exist, which also in my opinion, isn’t based on any “inputs”… that is to say, it just “is”, so to speak. When “love” is based on one or more things (which I call inputs) then it’s easy for the output behavior to change, because the input parameters have been changed.

Love is like a contract that binds your reaction to things. If the contract says “act nice if so and so person acts nice, then that’s then “niceness” is the input that triggers the output response we term “love”.

But if “true love” which just is, and who’s contract says “be nice, no matter what” then whether so and so person is nice or not, the output response remains the same.

In other words, love is like a system (my science/computer buddies can relate with this), what requires inputs to give an output. What’s inside that system (or box, if you remember the diagrams lol) is up to the lover. For some, no input is required, for some, 1 input is required, for others, many inputs are required… and so on.

This is my two cents 🙂
