I thought this would be about a different meaning for the word "love". My love of very dark chocolate, for example. Does thinking about it turn off the same brain areas?
I think it noted this was likely not in reference to attraction. Of course if it is more than attraction, i.e. it makes you sexually aroused.
Yes, I know. I was commenting on how vague the word "love" is because it applies to sexual desire, food, God, love of friends etc.
And one word for God in Koine Greek is "agape", of which there is no one-word English equivalent. It's what one may call an "action noun", such as one doesn't just believe in love but lives out of love. IOW, love is to permeate us and our actions.There are languages other than English that have a lot more words for love, the different kinds of love. We're rather limited in comparison.
