48 – On Love and other Human emotions the Physical Sciences deem unworthy of research…

Because the current focus in scientific research is mainly on Reductionism (the claim that we can understand anything by reducing it to its smallest components), and because it is about impossible to reduce Emotions like Love, Hate, Fear, Anger, Sadness, Happiness to a set of physical and measurable components, there is a reticence in science to investigate our primordial and oftentimes life-changing emotions.

This is the reason why, even though our emotions have the capacity to shape the way we live, their fundamental roots are mostly unknown to us. And although I am no expert in this field, I feel I cannot continue writing about the Interconnectedness, Equilibrium, Self-reflection, Tenacity, and Transformation of the physical world into which we come into existence, without writing about the emotions that give our lives character and a medium to sense and affect our world.

The consequences of ignorance about the significance, power, and easy susceptibility of our emotions, are obvious in a world mostly ruled by the manipulation of the populace through fear and ignorance.  The promoters of the doctrines of unlimited growth and insatiable consumerism perpetuate them by manipulating Education into endorsing a reckless, divisive and destructive sense of entitlement. This persistent indoctrination devalues human life and warps our emotions into accepting as inevitable the horrors of intolerance, poverty, war, and genocide.

Love is the most fragile, binding and beautiful of human emotions. It manifests instinctively at birth, while the other emotions are manifested, or not, under the influence of developmental circumstances. Love is organic – it comes from our senses through touching, seeing, kissing, feeling, being accepted – yet love is ephemeral, it can appear as suddenly as it can vanish, moving us and turning us around with excruciating pain or immeasurable joy. At the evolutionary level, love is the primordial force that fuels the perpetuation of the species, but at the individual level love is the fragile emotion that can define how we grow and relate to our world, and when inhibited or corrupted it can be easily turned into fear, anger, hate.

If scientists would dare to come down from the ‘ivory towers’ of their laboratories and atom smashers and look at our plight, they would see a world where the lack of knowledge about our own emotions is taking us into increasing levels of cruelty and poverty. Their efforts to try to isolate our Universe’s minutest components are commendable, but not when billions of human beings outside their towers are sinking deeper and deeper into intolerance and despair under the dominance of fear and hate.

The scientific theories they already possess reveal an extraordinary and progressive Order operating in our Universe: The Order that sustains the equilibrium between the pull-push forces of our solar system, so planets and moons can position into relatively stable orbits. The Order that gives a seed the information to reach down into the earth for nutrients, so it can build a breathing and self-replicating organism. The Order that gives billions of spiral galaxies their magnificent yet common shape. The Order that brings two cells together to create a self-sufficient and self-reflective human being. The Order that allows organisms to grow and reproduce, responding to environments and learning to adapt. The Order that keeps alive the binding power of love, so Life can be self-generated and self-perpetuated and progressively evolve into higher levels of complexity. The Order that puts us together … piece by piece, atom by atom, cell by cell … with the capacity to self-reflect and ultimately realize that knowledge and love are the most powerful tools we possess to help us overcome the dominance of Doctrines that promote ignorance, fear, and hate.

If only scientists would dare to study the human emotions with the same tenacity and excitement they study theories like Quantum or Relativity, perhaps we will come to understand the significance of being a highly evolved, self-conscious participant in the progressive order of Nature. Would they dare? Their survival is on the line too!
