Which came first..?
The chicken or the egg? No, similar question though. I ask you which came first, lust or love? I’ll speak in terms of man and woman, but you can switch them around as you see fit.
If the story of Adam and Eve is correct, than it was god who told man to love woman, and thus love came first. But, if Mankind grew out of monkeys, than which came first? Obviously the insticts of animals that we still hold today are for the mother to protect it’s young and for man to further the species, and so forth. So if this is true, than lust came first? And if this is the case, where did love come from?
Is love an invention of man or is it a characteristic of man? Is it something that we posses and we gave a name to, or is it something that we talk about that maybe isn’t there? Can love exist without lust and vice-versa?
What is the science of love? Obviously we have cracked the science of lust. It’s a reaction of chemicals in the brain. And love is the same way is it not? But where is the line drawn? Is there a line? Is love a subset of lust or is it the other way around?
These are just stupid hypotheticals, but feel free to share your thoughts, I’d like to hear them.
