Science of Love Links

By Sam Johnson

     Valentine's Day is "Love Day" and more people profess their love for one another at that time more than during any other time throughout the year. A great amount of money will be spent on cards, flowers, candy, dinner and gifts as a means of expressing this love.
    
Yet for all the love talk that goes on, the emotion we call love is one of the least understood. Poets have tried to express and explain love since the beginning of time, but not until recently have experts begun to fully understand what makes up the emotion we call love.
    
Over the past decade, scientists and researchers have been busy conducting experiments and surveys to try and discover the true meaning of love. Their results are beginning to explain this mysterious emotion, but even they disagree as to what actually causes love.
