We all know that one explanation for love, or rather lust, is nature's mechanism to sustain humanity. We are attracted to the opposite sex so that we can reproduce and our genes will live on. That is the physical aspect.
However, why do humans stay together and love each other for decades, perhaps even a century, after getting married? What is the point of marriage, anyway?
What nature needs is just the reproduction of humans, it doesn't need the marriage that connects two people for life. So what role does love play? What makes a person love another person for a lifetime? What keeps this love going?
When we first meet a potential partner, we are attracted by their looks. But what's important is the deeper connection between two humans. Perhaps after some interaction and hanging out, we become attracted to their personality. This is when the connection between two people's essences comes kicking in.
Is it the connection between the two peoples' essences that helps the two love each other for life?
What is love? Is it just something that helps us sustain our genes or is it something that supports us in our search for the meaning of life?
love (the physical aspect of it) is probably THE most significant player in the evolution of life, but with love also comes the deeper connection, or the essence. So what is this essence doing there in midst of the evolution of life? What is it's role?
On a side note: does the love that people experience during their lifetimes, if we reach the conclusion that it IS composed of essence, reach into the afterlife? Is the afterlife made up of essence, if there is one? Do our personalities survive into the afterlife?
Oh last but not least, could someone connect love with the secret more deeply than the book?
Thanks for reading this, everyone! i really appreciate it :)
