I was just pondering, as I do, on the train, when I am not dreaming of seasheep, about love, the romantic kind.
Love is a positive thing. When you are in love with someone you think they are special, , are interested in what they have to say, think they are sexy beasts. These things all make a person feel wonderful, right?
So then why does love have to be such a hit-and-miss affair? I think you know what I mean if you have
a) been in love with someone who doesn't love you back
b) been in a loving relationship with someone but then fallen out of love
c) been in a relationship when they no longer love you and break up with you but you still love them
These are all crappy situations to be in, and there is so much positive loving energy just going down the toilet. I have been in situations a and c. It feels like you are sending out waves of love that just break around the person like Fanta bubbles. If they aren't into you then the love vibes are no good to them and do not make them feel wonderful. In fact unwanted love can be annoying and embarrassing.
WHY? This is a highly inefficient system damnit, please will some engineer person see to it asap. Optimise the energy inputs and outputs and neural networks and all them other made up things you do. (BFG if you are reading this, engineers are very clever and useful and your optimisation of our walk to work to the nearest millisecond is exactly why I stay with you).
There are so many unloved, lonely, unhappy people out there. It is very rare that two people love each other and continue to do so over time.
Don't you think we should be able to harness all those wasted love vibes for something useful, maybe bottle them and give them to unloved people? Or we could give the bottle to the person we love as a gift so that even if they don't love us back they can still benefit from all the positive vibes we send their way? Maybe they would remember us fondly or something.
Have you ever had the unfortunate experience of investing huge amounts of loving energy into someone who does not return your feelings? It doesn't help to know they don't love you, and will NEVER love you, you will keep producing the pointless love energy until hope and delusion finally decide to die.
The world seems to run off entropy. Maybe us unloved lovers are what makes the world go round with our wasted Fanta bubbles. It would be nice to feel that all that intensity went somewhere, to some use, even if it is putrid orange and gives people gas.
