The science of love
Antrophologist have identified romantic love in almost every human culture. For instance, one recent study showed that 147 under 166 have some forms of romantic love. This suggests romantic love is at least poply by logically based
Antrophologist described romantic love as high intensities social ritual. Ritual being prescribed for of conducting a formal ceremony. This may seem surprising because we anusually aware following any kind of rules when we fall in love, but in fact, falling in love does have the four major characteristics of a ritual. The first characteristic of ritual is it is to bring people face to face contact. Clearly romantic love does this. People who are in love want to spend as much the time together as possible. The second characteristic of ritual is it focuses people attention on some commons object or activity. With romantic love the common object is the couple itself. For people in love, other people and activities seem to fade away. Now the third characteristic is it promotes mutual emotion among the participants. Obviously, romantic love qualifies him. Few other experiences can suppose the intensity; this is why romantic love is described as high intensity ritual. The final characteristic of ritual is it produces emotionally chart symbol that represents membership in some groups. Well, what are other symbols in romantic love? In western cultures, love associated with hot shade object and rings. For instance, wedding rings symbolize as couple’s love and commitment. We will not know how important that symbol could be. For instance losing the ring. For example, can cause lose of….. so be careful with those symbol. Now let’s look what’s happening in your brain and in your body when we feel the emotion that we called romantic love. Recent research indicates that there is biochemical basis to love. So there is good reason why people in love feels there is any different and more beautiful well. Their brain leads to let flooded hormones and chemicals that cause them to feel the way they feel. We can break the process of falling in love into three……………phases. Based on hormones and chemicals dominant of each phase. In the first phase, the hormones testosterone and estrogen play important role ….. Testosterone has reputation as man hormones. It is also presenting woman. And they have many effects on brain. One of them is to make sick…. And to be alert to present of possible….So, in essence this woman get us at looking for and then noticing perspective partner to fall in love with. In the second phase, well people have feeling of being love. He is powerful amphetamines are released to the brain. Amphetamines are kind of stimulant that make us feel alert. Well, two things of amphetamines are dopamine and Phenethylamine or PEA. Dopamine has physical affect to our body. It increases our heart rate and blood pressure and makes us more talkative. It has more powerful psychological effects and gives a feeling more pleasure and excitement. It has more emotional responses to think. The other chemical released in this phase is PEA. PEA is a neurotransmitter which means it increases electrical signal between the neuro is in the brain. This makes us feel euphoric. It’s the chemical makes us smile a lot. When we first in love and feel like where in some kind of heavenly road. But because our body develops tolerate to PEA, the euphoric feeling gradually disappeared. And that bring us to the final phase of love which is concern longer lasting commitment and attachment. The first important compound in this stage is endorphin. Endorphins are not true painkillers. It gives us sense of security and feeling at peace and calm. They basically improve our mood. Our brain also secret human that play role in the formation of social attachment, one such human is oxytocin, sometimes called the cuddle chemical. Oxytocin seems to produce the feeling of relax satisfaction and the attachment to other person.
Now, as …. There is some resistant to the idea of love being determined by brain chemistry and hormones. Do you where these resistants might come from
