[2004: JAN-FEB] What is love?


Recommended Posts

What is love?

Is it a chemical reaction? A bunch of random neurons firing in a random pattern? Is it the feeling you get deep in your gut? Is it your heart's reaction to the world around us?

The stars, the moon, the entire universe built on one, simple chemical reaction.

It's a mind boggling concept. One simple, routine chemical reaction of the human brain stirs us to write songs, compose poetry, and do the dumbest stuff imaginable. We loaf around, we avoid paying bills, we ignore all our friends and family, all because of love. Or what we think is love.

One simple, routine chemical reaction. The same chemicals that also induce stress, depression and anxiety also induce love. Perhaps that is why there is a thin line between love and hate. The same chemicals, after all, that induce love, also induce hate. Different chemicals that are stored in the brain ... they are all there, waiting for us to feel their power.

Waiting for the perfect opportunity to make us look foolish.

Waiting for the perfect opportunity to make us cry, laugh, sob and giggle, all at the same time.

What is love?

It is so much more than that. At least, I hope it is.
