Yea - thanks for your thoughts RS. Although I do sometimes question that bit about thinking beyond instinctual behavior <chuckle> even though I tend to agree with you

And maybe this is really all too philosophical for our reasons for being here (forum), although we certainly seem to see a lot of philosophical debate take place on some topics.

But it seems we often sidestep, either intentionally or accidentally, any attempt to to define what 'love' really means. But we love to talk about it
So I grabbed this poster's (potential) definition in case it happened to be accurate.
Personally, I don't think it's that simple even though it undoubtedly holds some validity.
