Love
    #1016826 - 11/02/02 10:59 PM (15 years, 25 days ago)

I just wanted to say that love, love is all around us. In a book by Orson Scott Card, there is a little girl who can see the connections between people as if they were strands of yarn. The greater the connection the larger and more vibrant the strand. Relationships of love and hate she saw. Sometimes I feel like I can see these. I look into a crowded room and see nothing but strands of light, connections between people....

Sometimes, just sometimes, you can see love.

Love

When you peer into the eyes of a dying wo/man and see yourself...your life...appreciate your mortality...and feel this empathy solidify in your heart...you come to know LUV.

I've felt those strings before but I have never seen them, I kind of believe that we all communicate subconsciously through these "strings", but most of the time do not pick up on it because of our trained waking consciousness (would probably be too intense)

So your equating empathy and love? They seem quite different to me.

I believe that through empathy...one can understand luv. Empathy is like a road one travels to luv...like a magnifying glass...

In reply to:

True.

Love will make you feel the best, and the worst, that you have ever felt in your life.

IMO, love is a culturally biased word attached to an event...a sensation...an emotion [and ironically, these other words I use are also culturally biased]. So IMO, love can not be truly understood unless it is beyond words...beyond thought...beyond our culture...and is as "simple" as can be. Then I feel that this same love can be seen as T. McKenna's description of LUV. I believe that while under the powers of an entheogen, we come to understand what love or luv really is.

Brukan, I don't think love is culturally biased at all! It is a universal constant - as true as gravity. Everybody will deal with it at some point or another. Some cultures may identify love as something different from our culture (I'm assuming US culture), but the fundamentals are the same.

Sonnet #18
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee
William Shakespeare

wait, I think you misunderstood me. The word "love" itself is a cultural bias...that of the English culture. Amore, Lamoure, and other such words used in romance languages spin a bias on the word. I think of it this way...to describe something that is felt and experienced by a word...such as "love"...creates a bias, which is determined by a culture. And when I say luv...think of it this way...love is an object that fits inside a bigger object, which is luv...luv is more general, and encompasses love.

What I was saying is that everyone who feels love is Madagascar does so with approximately the same feelings as someone who lives in NY, NY.

Because of this, the word "love" is universal and emans basically the same thing in every culture.

However, people in different cultures use the word differently. In the US, we say I love my new hobby, I love my bicycle... etc.

no problem. any other insights into the inner workings of Love? (with a capital L)

Also has anyone ever felt simply drunk from drinking Benadryl (DXM). 'Cause that's how I feel right now. Uncoordinated and swooney.
