Now although this has nothing to do with computers really, I figure I would share my bit of philiosophy with the world. Now keep in mind, I had just been dumped by my girl the day before, and was feeling slightly deep in the emo/philosophy of loveless lives XD. Not that im emo or anything. Just had a bad day XD. I wrote this just on a spur, didnt really do any research for it, infact some of it may be slightly incomprehensable, because I was typing it up really fast. These are exactly my final opinions on the matter, but more of what I was feeling at the moment, so anyone having troubles may like this, others might not.
Feel free to criticize, and pick and poke at it. This is just one thought that I had and randomly typed up. I may post more later but this is just one I thought alot of people might be able to get insync with.
The Existance of Love
In my opinion, love is not a feeling at all. I think that love does not exist. Love can be compared to gravity. We know that there is gravity between two bodies A and B, such that gravity is directly proportional to the two masses and inversely proportional to the distance between them. Explaining Einstein's Theory of Relativity would take a very long time so I will make this as concise as possible. There is actually no such thing as a straight line in nature. Light bends not because of gravity but because it travels in a bent path--curved space-time. Imagine a car traveling at a curved path. It travels like so because of the curvature of the road and not because of any other force. Space-time is bent by a mass (just imagine the space-time around black holes or the space-time of any infinite curvature). By the way, Einstein eliminated gravity from his Theory of Relativity. Just as I intend to do with the emotion of love from the human mind.
Love does not exist. Why? We tend to “love” not because we are attracted to somebody else, but because when we get too close to somebody else, we tend to follow the curvature brought about by that somebody. In short, we are like the rays of light traveling from the Sun to the Earth. We need some time in order to reach the other person. That process, in common terms, is the “getting-to-know-you” process. Just imagine yourself as an electron and that somebody is the nucleus of an atom. There is a unique relationship between a certain electron and the nucleus such that there will be no two electrons having exactly the same four quantum numbers. What am I talking about? I am showing that it is possible to be committed to only one person--our very special significant other.
If I were to say something along the lines of “I am so in love even though love does not exist.”, you might think im being redundant. But im not. How can this be? We use the word love to show that we follow the Laws of Physics. That is, we follow the natural processes of life. We live life and then die. Who would want to die without leaving any legacy behind them? No one. Love was created to be every human’s legacy.
Love does not exist in the sense that only the word love exists, as most people think, and that the word love does not always pertain to love (because keep in mind, there is no such thing as love). The word love does not pertain to a specific thing, but rather to a variety of things that are completely harmonic with each other, things that can not be fully understood by the human mind, things unimaginable and too incredible to be comprehended.
Some people might say “I am so in love!” But remember, love does not exist. There is a fine line between the word love and the thing love that many people believe exists. As far as the people that claim they are in love because they “know it” and they “feel it”, there is only one word to describe this feeling, infatuation.
Definition : Love - To have a great affection or liking for; a strong positive emotion of regard and affection; used as a term of endearment. This is the standard definition of the literal word love. Definition: Infatuation - Foolish and usually extravagant passion for; and extreme admiration; an object of extravagant and sometimes short-lived passion; used as a term of endearment. And although they are basically the same, most people will argue that love is an emotion, but then wouldn’t infatuation have to be considered an emotion if they are in fact the same? Definition: Lemerence - Lemerence is a state of mind sometimes referred to as "being in love" and sometimes called an infatuation; used as a term of endearment. Wow, that seems oddly familiar. Most people have never heard of the word Lemerence, and if they knew exactly what it meant, would they consider it an emotion along with love and infatuation. Although they have the same denotation, most people wouldn’t consider them all to be the same thing.
So, love, can it be proven? No. Can it be disproved? Yes. I have been able to scientifically prove that just because the word love exists the feeling doesn’t. Love does not exist, therefore, people cannot do foolish things in the name of it.
So Post your philosophies on the different aspects of culture, or life in general. Please, no idiots?
I was bored, and mopey at the time lol. So dont think im going all emo on you guys or nothing, because im anything but, theres a large difference between the people that dress in black, just to fit in, and people who ACTUALLY have indepth thoughts on different aspects of life.
*SIDE NOTE* on emos: Whats up with everyone wanting to fit in? Why does humanity want everyone to like them?
