Re: I'm out of here.

"Just like you stated earlier that Science must prove "love"..."

He said that? Science HAS proven love. Love is nothing but a chemical reaction in the brain of the person who feels it. That's all it ever was and that's all it will ever be! Same thing for every other emotions!

-"Is the love buzz just a chemical reaction? Recent Science has proven that the answer is 'yes,' and one neurochemical is mainly responsible. Professor Robert Friar (left), of Ferris State University in Michigan, explains:

"Falling in love involves Phenylethylamine or PEA, which causes a person to be less likley to be aware of the faults of the other person.

"Phenylethylamine gives us that euphoric high. That feel good. Everything is wonderful. This person can do no wrong. We've often times seen people who fall in love with somebody and ask 'are you blind?' Well, yes they really are blind. And almost no one can tell them at that stage of the game because Phenylethylamine is pouring out in large quantities.

"And of course we can't sustain that level of Phenylethylamine for a long period of time, so it begins to drop after a couple years. As it slowly drops off it gets to the point at about four or five years that it actually becomes ineffective after that."

When we meet someone to whom we are sexually attracted, our bodies respond by releasing neurochemicals that can leave us sputtering, incoherent and breathless.

Our body is a huge cocktail, a mix of chemicals that speed up our heart rate, give us sweaty palms, make our cheeks flush and turn us into lovesick fools.

The chemicals responsible for love are all originally released in the brain and have an effect throughout the whole body. The base spirit is the PEA, and as it is more commonly known, the 'love chemical.' Its effect on our mood is similar to that caused by amphetamines."
