9186 Is "love" a concept or an evolutionary trace in the human body? 20190218
Love is not only a concept but a human function with a special unit in the body to keep it going. And the unit is developed during the evolutionary process in a very short time, maybe it is only a few thousand years. Before that, human is same with other animals, without knowledge of love. The sole purpose of a human being is to survive. The fables of Aesop is a prove. There was no concept of love in the fables of Aesop. The concept of love was brought in by Jesus Christ.
However, love is more than a concept. It is a feeling, and the feeling is a function of our body.
Is it important? When every one is busy to find a way to make a living, all other things are not important.
Yet it is important, if we can see the future of us humans, we would find everything more interesting.
If the feeling of love is a function of some inner units in our body, we can expect other feeling could be developed too.
For example, the feeling to know the minds of other people is also important. If you know beforehand the other guy next to you have a weapon at hand and he is going to rob you, you will be alerted. But many people are lacking such feelings. They would not know the smiling face of a friend could turn out to be a cheater.
And this is the beginning of some more important feelings. Such as the feeling to foresee a disaster. Seldom could we know when is an earthquake coming.
Some people do have such feelings while many other don't, and few people would believe it. However, if we could see it in a viewpoint of evolution, it is completely different.
Future human can have a feeling much different from us now. They will have very strong feeling of others, that love is real always. They can connect to each other via an unknown channel, they would know each other without talking. They can send a message with the mind waves.
And all such feelings are the functions of the special unit developed during the evolution of mankind.
Some people would never believe it would happen. They were like earth worms under the soil. Earth worms would never belief that people can see with their eyes. They can only use skin to feel the earth and live underground. They would never believe in light or eyesight. Because they have not been evolved.
What are we going to be evolved into?
If everyone on earth has a feeling towards each other, they would be living very happily. And their happiness is real. It will not be the same as the old form of material satisfaction only. It will be mind satisfaction and mind coordination. Which is a real source of happiness.
From the point of evolution, we said "everyone". Yes, it must be a basic function with a basic unit built in our inner self, then we can be sure that we are indeed evolved into the second stage of human kind.
Some people on earth now has a bit of that kind of feeling already. They are the lucky few who are the forerunners for human kind. They have a stronger urge to feel and to love. They know much more then the rest of us. But we can be sure that in future, may be in ten thousand years of time later, everyone would have that feeling, because, we are evolved then.
Love is a thought or a concept in our time. It is not easy to have that concept. It cannot be taught in classrooms. You will never know what love is until you have that feeling. Many of us know only of "want", rather then "love". If they say I love you, it meant I want you.
Love is a feeling. You got to have a special gut to have that feeling.
And it is very strange that the feeling could be gained in a very special moment.
It is in the moment of fighting. If people are fighting together seriously in war, they would love and care for each other. Working together and fighting together are the base of love.
Therefore, I doubt that war is a necessary evil for us human beings to develop a function in our inner selves for a feeling, and love.
If there are no war, there will be no love. We are fighting for our survival every day. We shall never be evolved if we need not to fight.
We will be a little smarter if we can feel this. And I do hope people will be more aware that other function in our body will develop too. We are just like the earth worms. It is very difficult for us to know the unknown abilities ahead of us. Only a few could see the upper layer of sceneries.
