After scrutinizing the quantum world, it amplified my perspective about the reality of our existence, and now quantum mechanics became a big part of my daily life.
When I talk to people, I perceive quantum mechanics happening in our brains. If I interact with a happy and loving person, I could visualize, how this person create very specific qualities of emotion that shape DNA.
When I get some strange memories, I think about Everett’s theory, that I am probably sliding between multiverses. And when I need to make a decision in my life, I think about wave functions or the “uncertainty” principle.
When I look at our surroundings, I see how all things are connected and interrelated through entanglement. Yeah. I am adopting the Quantum principle when I am contemplating every aspect of my life. I love Quantum Mechanics.
This shift to the quantum way of thinking leads me to unleash the unlimited possibilities of the quantum principles. When I say Quantum Love I am not referring to the atomic and subatomic particles but rather applying quantum principles towards self-awareness.
Quantizing the thing called “Love”
If I tell my co-workers here in Denmark, that I love them, they definitely find it extremely bizarre. This is of course due to cultural differences. In the Philippines, where I grew up, you can say “I love you” at all times, without being misinterpreted by others.
This week, my american friend wrote “I love you” on my facebook post. To me it is only a friendly remark, but my Scandinavian friends might interpret it differently and think that I am in a relationship with him.
When we say “I love you”, it doesn’t necessarily involve romance. If we start to be aware of how this thing called “love” can actually be felt in so many different ways or different aspects, then we are able to create incredible changes in how we see life.
Eros (Erotic Love)
This is love for the body. It is mainly based on sexual and passionate desire for each other. Eros gives a feeling of being euphoric. It is actually spiritual awakening and an idealistic kind of love, because you are able to share your body and see the beauty of intimacy between the two of you.
Suzette Lyn’s Poem expressed Eros;
“On the Bed of Fantasy
I nakedly perceived the shade of me in your life
Bed is restless, always a fantasy and solitarily melancholic
But a bed with my passion and wariness is restful and peaceful insole”
Taken from the last paragraph of “Bed of Fantasy” Poem
This kind of love evolves through physical attraction to each that gives harmonious connection by engaging in spontaneous, spiritual and intimate sex.
Philia (Affectionate Love)
This kind of love represents the sincere and platonic or brotherly love. This is considered as affectionate love into which the sexual element does not enter.
Expressing Philia you might say:
“I love my workmate, we have the same goal of doing our job effectively.”
This kind of love evolves when people share the same values and dispositions together.
Ludus (Playful love)
This kind of love gives us a rush of pleasure and happiness, similar to the effect of taking cocaine or nicotine, so it is addictive.
If you experience this “teenage love” it is like having hypertension or being very nervous when you meet that person. You can’t eat and sleep. You can’t stop thinking about him or her. Ludos also conveys a cheerfulness which is often lost in long-term relationships.
Jackie Collins Expressed Philia
“Falling in love is like getting hit by a truck and yet not being mortally wounded. just sick to your stomach, high one minute, low the next. Starving hungry but unable to eat. hot, cold, forever horny, full of hope and enthusiasm, with momentary depressions that wipe you out.
It is also not being able to remove the smile from your face, loving life with a mad passionate intensity, and feeling ten years younger.
Love does not appear with any warning signs. You fall into it as if pushed from a high diving board. No time to think about what’s happening. It’s inevitable. An event you can’t control. A crazy, heart-stopping, roller-coaster ride that just has to take its course.”
This kind of love evolves when the two persons feel childlike innocence, alive and excited about life.
Pragma (Long standing love)
This kind of love is the highest form of love between couples. It develops over a long period of time. It doesn’t require a lot of effort in a relationship. The love is manifested due to understanding, compromise and tolerance.
My Daddy expressed Pragma like this:
“I love your Mom so much, she makes me happy when she is happy” – Daddy
This kind of love evolves over time and requires profound understanding between lovers who have been together for many years.
Agape (Love of the soul)
This kind of love is selfless and compassionate. The love for humanity. It is the closest to unconditional love.
Agape love is manifested in all charitable acts or service. It makes us sympathize, help and connect with people we are not related to or don’t even know.
St. Therese of the Child Jesus expressed Agape like this:
“Love is unselfish and kind, you give love without expecting anything in return.”
This kind of love evolves because we gain a deeper and different perspective. Like understanding that the needs of others are different from our own. Thus we integrate new ways of thinking and learn to apply a more universal perspective. Through this process we grow beyond ourselves and our own perspective and we gain ultimate wisdom.
Storge (Familiar Love)
This kind of love is related to connection by blood, adoption, kinship and marriage. Storge is the love that knows forgiveness, acceptance and sacrifice.
Brad Henry expressed Storge;
“Families are the compass that guides us. They are an inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.”
This kind of love evolves because it makes you feel secure, comfortable and safe.
This kind of love is the love for our own selves. There are two kinds.
The love you have for yourself. This is essential for sharing your love with others. This kind of self-love seeks wisdom, knowledge, fulfilment, peace, understanding and happiness.
This kind of self-love seeks pleasure, fame and wealth.
Andre Gide expressed Philautia;
“Loving yourself isn’t vanity. It’s sanity.”
This kind of love evolves when you start to feel good about yourself; either in a selfish or in a compassionate way.
Self-awareness on this thing called “Love”
I know someone who once said to his wife, “I cannot love your family because they are not connected to me at all”. This is an example of unconsciously allowing the ego that can lead to physical, mental and emotional blockages.
Believing in something or being aware of something are two different things. We might believe that we have enough love in our lives but our full awareness of the truth is typically locked up in people today.
I believe that knowledge is the key to self-awareness and with the help of Quantum principle or quantum way of thinking it helps our belief systems to grow. Then we gradually progress in awareness and reach the full understanding of this thing called “Love”.
