nigguh then what is love without the pleasure?
its the same , bruh
#152 - auryn (2 hours ago) [-]
Love without pleasure is still love, and love with pleasure can be love.

But pleasure isn't the same as love.

Love is unselfishness, and although unselfishness is the most liberating experience and might come with joy it doesn't mean that the experience of this joy is the same as love itself.
#154 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
also scientifically speaking unselfishness is just the desire to get more of that good feeling you get by doing things an unselfish person would do
#157 - auryn (1 hour ago) [-]
That could be, but then it wouldn't be true unselfishness.

I'm talking about genuine unselfishness, with no ulterior motive.
#158 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
the point is that there is no "no ulterior motive" , yo do it either to feel good, or so you don't feel bad (which is also because of chemicals)

How you act is choice.

A limited choice indeed, being subconsiously influenced, and generally strongly driven by the ego.

But a choice nonethless. You don't have to give in to your tendencies or follow the path of the least resistance.
Although in reality they seldom are, and in a lot of cases, consciously or subconsciously, there's usually selfish motives mixed in, but actions don't have to stem from selfishness per se and not everything is driven by and can be explained in this matter.

well you're not grasping the concept

he will fucking artificially love the dummy

that's artificial love

its not just the "good feeling" its an entire range of chemicals that cause it
that's what scientifically is love
tis just a matter of:
this chemical causes you to react this way, this other one does the other shit and this other one makes you do this shit n' stuff oh also and this one makes you feel good
#155 - auryn (1 hour ago) [-]
That's not love, that's just the physical sensation of pleasure.
You'\re specifically talking a feeling, what I'm saying is that love is more than a feeling.

Everything you're describing applies to sensation. But love is more than sensation.
#159 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
no, not phisical sensations, they affect the way your brain works and you react, thats the concept of feelings
passions are just "way bigger" feelings
in the end they both are caused by chemicals
#163 - auryn (1 hour ago) [-]
You keep equating the feeling with love itself, but what I'm trying to say is that the feeling can be a possible effect of love, but that it's neither the cause or essence of love.
#164 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
its because in reality your definition of love does not exist
people were and are able to easily make up a concept for a bunch of stuff and events put together
all those things are able to be synthetically recreated and put together thus making syntethic love, but love nonetheless
but then youd go again and tell me how "that isn't love"
love is the word we use for that, a concept, meaningless ,its not something spiritual or anything
and i repeat:
what im telling you is that we can synthetically recreate that stuff and put it together , just in the way of the concept of love, thus making SYNTHETIC LOVE
after seven posts or so my english starts to fai so sorry

There's nothing vague,abstract or spiritual about what I'm saying.

All I said is that love is unselfishness.

But you don't seem to be able to imagine a world where unselishness might exist, and I do. Really, that's the difference.

it would not cause a pleasant feeling, it would cause the exact pleasant feeling
nigguh, guess what, if it didn't cause a pleasant feeling you wouldn't do it, and guess what, believing that you're a nice person for helping others (which is the case) also causes a pleasant feeling
just as i am typing this its causing a pleasant feeling
everyone does stuff for a reason
you save your friends from death? so you can still feel the pleasant feeling caused by knowing they're alive and having them around
your friend died and you're sad as fuck? its your body dealing with the fact that you won't feel that particular pleasant feeling anymore
being sad causes a little of pleasant feelings afterwards

I study not medicine, but you both may be right a little bit. I introduce the situation of a father raising a child, and losing sleep to provide for the needs of his young at any time of the day or of the night. To do this deprives the father of needed rest, thus causing sleep deprivation, a condition which impairs his ability to operate during the day and also makes him feel like shit. This is by no means pleasant, but he makes this sacrifice for a worthy cause. At the same time, he feels more than just sleep deprivation. If the Tumblr post bears credence, which it might not as we have seen many posts from said site using erroneous information, lacking sources and accomplishing nothing, then the "love" chemicals do still interact with the brain, just in a smaller amount than is necessary to evince an overall feeling of pleasure. These chemicals, which I cannot verify based on my incomplete education, might cause the moral satisfaction for doing the right thing, thus causing us to feel good deep down at a core level of our brains and, thus, our souls even though the right thing is not always easy and does not grant immediate pleasure.

It wouldn't cause love.
It would cause a pleasant feeling.

Love is more than just a pleasant feeling, an emotion. On the contrary, Love is unselfishness, when you're willing to make yourself feel shittier for the benefit for something outside yourself.

These days too many people seem to confuse love with attachment or lust, while in reality it's polar opposite.

actually it does, iits just the scientific representation, believe me with the correct ammount of chemicals we can make you find "true beauty" in an empty can of soup

Read my comment below.

Pleasure =/= love

I don't need or expect some kind of reward for everything that I do for someone else, and if you're only doing it to make yourself feel better than it's not really love but just an extension of your selfishness.
#51 - ilikepatatas (01/27/2015) [-]
no, believe me that "love" you feel is just pleasure with another name
i understand it being hard to understand, but if you try to get to the roots of it you surely will

I get what you're trying to say, and I agree.

But I'm not talking about that, I wasn't talking about the my supposed feeling of love, you're missing my point.
#56 - ilikepatatas (01/27/2015) [-]
i don't get it, but i suppose you would just need to replace people with pheromone-emitting dummies or something
or perhaps your definition of love is the natural occurence of love
the chemicals used in that way would cause love , synthetic love, but love nonetheless
#61 - auryn (01/27/2015) [-]
It wouldn't cause love.
It would cause a pleasant feeling.

Love is more than just a pleasant feeling, an emotion. On the contrary, Love is unselfishness, when you're willing to make yourself feel shittier for the benefit for something outside yourself.

These days too many people seem to confuse love with attachment or lust, while in reality it's polar opposite.
#65 - ilikepatatas (01/27/2015) [-]
it would not cause a pleasant feeling, it would cause the exact pleasant feeling
nigguh, guess what, if it didn't cause a pleasant feeling you wouldn't do it, and guess what, believing that you're a nice person for helping others (which is the case) also causes a pleasant feeling
just as i am typing this its causing a pleasant feeling
everyone does stuff for a reason
you save your friends from death? so you can still feel the pleasant feeling caused by knowing they're alive and having them around
your friend died and you're sad as fuck? its your body dealing with the fact that you won't feel that particular pleasant feeling anymore
being sad causes a little of pleasant feelings afterwards
#149 - auryn (13 hours ago) [-]
I'm not talking about love as a pleasant feeling.

I'm saying the exact opposite, love isn't the same as pleasure.

I study not medicine, but you both may be right a little bit. I introduce the situation of a father raising a child, and losing sleep to provide for the needs of his young at any time of the day or of the night. To do this deprives the father of needed rest, thus causing sleep deprivation, a condition which impairs his ability to operate during the day and also makes him feel like shit. This is by no means pleasant, but he makes this sacrifice for a worthy cause. At the same time, he feels more than just sleep deprivation. If the Tumblr post bears credence, which it might not as we have seen many posts from said site using erroneous information, lacking sources and accomplishing nothing, then the "love" chemicals do still interact with the brain, just in a smaller amount than is necessary to evince an overall feeling of pleasure. These chemicals, which I cannot verify based on my incomplete education, might cause the moral satisfaction for doing the right thing, thus causing us to feel good deep down at a core level of our brains and, thus, our souls even though the right thing is not always easy and does not grant immediate pleasure.
#150 - auryn (13 hours ago) [-]
Just because love might come with pleasure doesn't mean they are the same thing.
#151 - ilikepatatas (8 hours ago) [-]
nigguh then what is love without the pleasure?
its the same , bruh
#152 - auryn (2 hours ago) [-]
Love without pleasure is still love, and love with pleasure can be love.

But pleasure isn't the same as love.

Love is unselfishness, and although unselfishness is the most liberating experience and might come with joy it doesn't mean that the experience of this joy is the same as love itself.
#154 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
also scientifically speaking unselfishness is just the desire to get more of that good feeling you get by doing things an unselfish person would do
#157 - auryn (1 hour ago) [-]
That could be, but then it wouldn't be true unselfishness.

I'm talking about genuine unselfishness, with no ulterior motive.
#158 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
the point is that there is no "no ulterior motive" , yo do it either to feel good, or so you don't feel bad (which is also because of chemicals)
#160 - auryn (1 hour ago) [-]
Not every action we make has to come from an egocentric point of view.
#162 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
btw thats if we speak psychologically, biologically speaking its just your brain doing usual chemical administration shit brains do
#161 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
in fact they do, but its not entirely you, its your brain try, psychology describes us as 3 different "beings" in a brain the last last one is the one acting
#165 - auryn (1 hour ago) [-]
How you act is choice.

A limited choice indeed, being subconsiously influenced, and generally strongly driven by the ego.

But a choice nonethless. You don't have to give in to your tendencies or follow the path of the least resistance.
Although in reality they seldom are, and in a lot of cases, consciously or subconsciously, there's usually selfish motives mixed in, but actions don't have to stem from selfishness per se and not everything is driven by and can be explained in this matter.

well you're not grasping the concept
love can be recreated with the right chemicals
imagine a dude whose brain gets injected with the specific ammount and type of chemicals without him knowing it everytime he sees a dummy
he will fucking artificially love the dummy
imagine a dude whose brain gets injected with the specific ammount and type of chemicals without him knowing it everytime a situation is presented in front of him
he will fucking feel like helping /be charitative/do good things n'shit
that's artificial love
if the subject was naturally a person who couldn't feel love then with that procedure he would artificially FEEL LOVE
its not just the "good feeling" its an entire range of chemicals that cause it
that's what scientifically is love
tis just a matter of:
this chemical causes you to react this way, this other one does the other shit and this other one makes you do this shit n' stuff oh also and this one makes you feel good
#155 - auryn (1 hour ago) [-]
That's not love, that's just the physical sensation of pleasure.
You'\re specifically talking a feeling, what I'm saying is that love is more than a feeling.

Everything you're describing applies to sensation. But love is more than sensation.
#159 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
no, not phisical sensations, they affect the way your brain works and you react, thats the concept of feelings
passions are just "way bigger" feelings
in the end they both are caused by chemicals
#163 - auryn (1 hour ago) [-]
You keep equating the feeling with love itself, but what I'm trying to say is that the feeling can be a possible effect of love, but that it's neither the cause or essence of love.
#164 - ilikepatatas (1 hour ago) [-]
its because in reality your definition of love does not exist
people were and are able to easily make up a concept for a bunch of stuff and events put together
all those things are able to be synthetically recreated and put together thus making syntethic love, but love nonetheless
but then youd go again and tell me how "that isn't love"
love is the word we use for that, a concept, meaningless ,its not something spiritual or anything
