Re: The Female Brain

Animus, So the question is.. is the heightened levels of testosterone a result of playing the sport, or is playing the sport the result of high testosterone levels. Another example, taxi drivers have denser structures in the hippocampi associated with navigation. Is this structural difference the re...

Re: What is Love? Or did we do this before?

broken, But you are negating the conscious mind's power to identify the sources of attachment, as you have just done, and thereby to deny it its mindless grip. Perhaps I just don't believe you can have the cake and eat it too. But it is possible that this is only because I have not been able to avoi...

brokenhead, The fact is that this scenario already happened. She married someone else 27 years ago. I agree I went through a detachment phase, but my love for her remained. You are not answering either question, though. 1) Where has the attachment been? 2) Where is it now? The attachment grew gradua...

Re: What is Love? Or did we do this before?

broken, It may be that love itself is not an emotion, and that attachment is the emotion that love can predicate. I don't think love is an emotion. I think love is a drive. The love did not die or go anywhere. Where has the attachment been? Where is it now? Let us assume that your lover has an affai...

It's free. No debts.
The price is attachment. Without attachment, there is no love.

broken, I will go out on a limb here and state that British- and US-backed Saudi hegemony in the Arab world is by any measure a lesser evil than the slave trade. US imperialism is the problem, and no, I do not believe it to be a lesser evil than the slave trade. The difference is the scale at which ...

Oh yes I am. Give. You are not talking about the cologne with the armpit pheromone isolate added to it, are you? No. You can eat chocolate. That's my favorite, though I admit that the dose of phenylethylamine produced this way is low. For a love addict, it will not be enough. You can also do "excit...

Re: What is Love? Or did we do this before?

broken, I don't know about pheromones. I'm pretty sure love is produced by chemicals that can work at any distance. An example of these chemicals is phenylethylamine, which releases dopamine, which stimulates the production of oxytocin. These substances work like drugs. They give you a high and are ...
