Love in the Anthropocene

Some things we have a choice in, and that means “control,” at least on the physical plane. Other things sweep us up, and we can only marvel at being part of the process: the spinning solar system, the spinning globe—and now the permanently altered environment which envelops us.

Our Drive To Bond

Since we’re driven to form bonds, we need to understand how Nature intended us to bond. Until we successfully learn how to couple, how can we follow the example of cells to create larger cooperative communities? Until we successfully learn how to couple better, the next stage of our evolution, wherein humans assemble to form the larger superorganism humanity, is stalled.

Biochemistries in Love

"love hormone" oxytocin is actually more properly identified as a neuropeptide
because it acts not just within your body but also within your brain.
Oxytocin has long been known to play a key role within social bonding
and attachment.

Love Is No Big Truth

What if love is no big truth? What if there are two primary and simple
desires wrapped into every love story or romantic escapade: the desire
to lose ourselves and fuse with the source, and the desire to become
ourselves and separate from the source?

Making Love and Sex with Strangers

The challenge for so many loving and committed couples is in keeping desire, attraction, passion, and presence in their sex lives. A big part of the problem is that most people define "making love" simply as "sex with someone you love."

The Soulmate Con

I don't like the idea of soul-mates. It suggests the wish-fulfillment
of a pre-destined fixed-deck, which reduces you to a hapless rube at the
card table of love. If your heart is open, if your
curiosity is great, if your enthusiasm for life abounds, potential
soul-mates will keep skipping toward you out of the mist.
