Something else. It's an emotion.

According to 'modern science', LOVE is expressed and received in 5 ways.

And more than often, the kind of love folks give is the kind of love they enjoy receiving.

1. Gifts
2. Affirmation
3. Touch
4. Quality Time
5. Acts of Service

And then there is a 6th kind of love that is that of the human altruist who gains
the intrinsic reward all God of Nature given, in terms of social bonding, in science
associated terms of oxytocin and other beneficial neuro-hormones and neuro-chemicals
that keep the altruistic love of human beings strong as yes, this intrinsic reward is
'delicious', in how it feels, when giving and sharing becomes receiving all in one,
as a Way of LIFE

And then there is the 7th 'KIND' of Love that is the Unconditional TOUGH Love of the God
of Nature that ranges from mutations that allow a species to adapt to unforeseen
environmental changes; LIKE Einstein's Brain anomalies that may directly,
at least in part, lead to the theory of relativity and scientific advances
associated with that TO everything from the so-called big-bang and
after that leading to the most beautiful blue and green orb we know
as earth now that provides a habitat for the greatest achievements
of humankind that are imagination and creativity of human dreams;
and unfortunately human nightmares as well, such as the atomic
bombs that can destroy much of life on earth; if used without
discretion. And humans beings in terms of unconditional
tough love must learn to become not only Lovers but
Warriors for survival. Yeah; some folks do not think
of wars to protect human freedoms as Love; but
never the less; life is messy, the God of Nature
is messy; and the dark and light mix to make
what the 7th KIND of Love IS, overall, as is for

NOW..:)

That answer is intended for Janissy.

I am instructed not to go into the esoteric here by the moderators;

Other than with a few selected individuals; as it not 'within' the 'thinking' minds of many folks here.

But yes, Love is all the things you say it is and more, and I feel like you could handle the answer; but
you are not specifically among the list of the other 'crazies' here like me; smiles; if you care to you can
PM me if you are interested in more; but yes, Love is vibrations shared between human beings and the
rest of nature FAR FAR beyond what science can identify is expressed between human beings,
for dam sure; no doubt, in MY LOVE; for sure; BUT NO, not all humans experience LOVE the
way I do
and that's for
dam sure too.
Some do not
experience it
AT ALL.
AND that my friend; if I can call you that;
is why it is of no use to have this conversation
with
them; there is ZERO POINT of reference
to come close to understanding what LOVE
is
for
THEM..:)

Meh, I think I am a bit unromantic about this.

Love as a noun: Hormonal.

Love as a verb: Here I steal from M. Scott Peck in Road Less Traveled. To paraphrase, "Love is the willful extension of one's ego boundaries so support the growth of oneself or another." It's kind of dry but it works for me. :D

Hmm, the answer wasn't intended for Jannisy. Them answered the question exactly the same way a shrink did many years ago. Love is a neurochemical variable to me...

In the case of a love for science...is that then extending one's own boundaries or those of another?

A neurochemical variable over which we have no real initial control. Nothing romantic about my limbic system :wink:

Your cells. They contain energy. They produce it from the food you eat, that's how they get it. They store what they produce. You use this energy everyday. Love is one way it gets used.

'That answer' to be clear, I hope, is not 'your answer' to Janissy; it is 'my answer' to Janissy;
to go beyond the emotion thingy; that some folks think that Love is RESTRICTED to.

THERE is 'puppy dog love'; but there is much more to it;
for those who experience it, and of course label IT as love.

But of course, the four letter word love that some folks do consider a pejorative,
who do not truly experience much of the nuance of it that CAN exist;
IT can be just a human abstract term for them; not unlike the real
emotions of faith, hope, and belief; that while 'they' too are emotions;
'they' too, go far beyond the 'normal' metaphor of humans;
that most westernized folks 'see' emotion as, in terms
of FEELINGS..:)

In some cultures, there are scores of abstract terms for 'it'; far beyond a four letter word.

Western cultures are sorely impoverished in terms of metaphors for love;
which of course, is directly related
to the poverty of love
of Western
materialistic ways of life;
in ways of internal emotional
and sensory life; as opposed
to living life, AS A 'WORLD'
of cultural extension
of 'tools' becoming
'our' 'humanity'
in metaphor,
of course.

And in general; the same applies
to the three letter word GOD; as truly
when one expands metaphors for LOVE large enough;
the three letter word GOD fits securely
in the four letter word LOVE; but i
am getting into the esoteric here
now; otherwise known as metaphors
for other "culture's" deeper
ways of perceiving
the possibilities
of all 'Universes
of
HUMAN EYES'..;)

I don't think you are what
folks consider crazy around
here; at all; that is why I do
not go into this much wordiness;
at first, my friend; but anyway.
I try my best to keep a subject
as large as love, as short
and succinct as possible;

It takes more than one
'Novel', to come close
to fully adequately
describing WHAT
IS LOVE; FROM
both a physical
perspective
and
esoteric
'one'
as well..:)

It is when I make a conscious choice to do something I would not otherwise do (i.e. extend my boundaries)
to benefit another person. That could mean either jumping into a raging river to save their life, or simply that I fold and put away the laundry without being nagged to do so. :D

I'm not a religious fanatic,but I think the Bible gives as good an explanation as can be found.
The original texts below used the word 'charity',but when replaced with the more modern 'love' they make sense.
Extracts from Corinthians,1,13
"And though I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries,and all knowledge: and though I have all faith
so that I could move mountains,and have not love,I am nothing.
.... Love suffers long,and is kind.Love envies not,does not vaunt itself.
Does not behave itself unseemly,seeks not her own,is not easily provoked,thinks no evil.
Rejoices not in iniquity,but rejoices in the truth.
Bears all things,believes all things,endures all things.
Love never fails.But where there are prophecies,they shall fail; where there are tongues,they shall cease; where there is knowledge,it shall vanish away.
.......... and now abides faith,hope,love ; but the greatest of these is love.
