I like playing with people's minds. I like observing their reactions to the stimuli I put before them. It makes me feel more alive. Lately a question hatched in my brain: How do you know when you are in love? Surprisingly, most people questioned came up with the answer: "I don't know, I have never been." Adult people, married people, unmarried people; it wouldn't matter. Most of them would admit to not having been in love. So I have begun a quest, to define what love is really about but since love, as we think we know it, has become so hard to define. I am looking for a definition of a new set of feelings that I call "loBe," as a chunk of rational decisions performed at the nerve and brain cells level. So, how do you know when you are in loBe?

can feelings be seen as a "chunk of rational decisions?" i suppose a causal relationship could be constructed between a stimuli and the feeling it induces, but i don't think that would always be repeated. fortunately feelings can't be solved like a mathematical proof.

by the way, that is one nicely provocative image. well done.
