Love potion within reach


Atreides

Recommended Posts

A few people have the view that love is "just a chemical reaction" and we can see its effects on the brain - chemicals and stuff makes you loopy. Also there's the issue of the setting and circumstance to "fake" it. For example if you go on a roller coaster ride your heart races and you can mistake it as love.

 

Anyway since that's the case will drugging ourselves with love potions when we see someone be a formula for "happily ever after"? Might keep people together longer too.

 

Good idea? Bad idea?

 

 

:lol: because it's the cool thing to do.

Seriously though, it would probably be more a matter of people drugging other people to be in love with them. In the other case drugging oneself to feel for someone seems foolish to me. What would be the upside? How would the drug even be selective of whom one would be in love with anyway?

 

I've never heard of your roller coaster example. From what I've known of love I'd consider it a prolonged sentiment; something that lasts more than fifteen minutes.

No thanks on this...I can barely grasp the concept of love already and this'll just muddy the waters even more.

I've been on lots of roller coasters and not once did I mistake the rush for love. :(

 

Like that other recent thread, this kind of thing might be useful as an anti-depressant of some kind, but a 'love potion'...depends on what it does, really. If it fakes people into falling in love and then they have keep taking the potion to stay in love, that's silly - I see no point to that.

 

The intense quick fallin-in-love rush part may be initially largely chemical, but that isn't what keeps people together for 50 years. In my opinion anyway.

Just put it in all major public water supplies all the world. Watch the love spread :(

Also, a lot of the chemistry of couples is built upon their pheremones, which are directly related to their immune system (hence not malleable with a potion or topical cream or whatever: needs germ therapy).
