A common feeling...!!
According to Oxford Dictionary: A strong feeling of affection, A great interest and pleasure in something, A friendly form of address, (in tennis, squash, and some other sports) a score of zero; nil.
According to Neural Sciences : Early stage romance produces proofs of diminished levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin and of a serotonin receptor, emulates the same condition as that of obsessive compulsive disorder. People in romantic love show increased activity in a number of different regions of the brain that are involved in the dopamine reward system. Parental love activates most of the same regions but not the hypothalamus, suggesting that the hypothalamus may be responsible for the sexual component of romantic love. Areas that show reduced activity include the amygdala and the frontal and pre-frontal cortecies. The amygdala is associated with fear and aversive learning, or learning from one's mistakes. The frontal and prefrontal cortecies are associated with the executive functions of analysis and judgment, delayed gratification, and predicting the outcomes of events. We can speculate that diminished activity in these regions explains why lovestruck persons do not seem to have full grasp of these particular functions.
Arts: There are wide range of artistic expression of love is being constantly reflected in TV, Movies, Books and other mediums, The most notorious expression of love within the liberties of artistic flight would be "pyaar dosti hai" by karan johar in Kuchh Kuchh Hota Hai.
The Overview Effect?
Not a Common Feeling....!!!!
Experienced by only 556 people, till 2010, The overview effect is triggered after watching our blue astronomical ball, earth, from space, it creates a sense of oneness to the nature in the observer, further it makes him more conscious about protecting the environment and ecosystem of the earth, and even further it equips the observer with the virtue of looking at the situations and ideas from an overview perspective.
Artificial Intelligence and Human Neural Network:
Human beings are obsessed with the idea of creating Artificial Intelligence, since time immemorial. Probably the quest would have started with the taming of animals for travelling or farming, and certainly will go beyond the creation of a God like creature, which will be organic in nature. A simple progression will be a central computer server of the world, having all the data and programs, an algorithm which is self progressing, and reconciling the new idea or knowledge with an already existing idea and creating,a new conclusion, just like a human being, but at a devastatingly large scale.
The realization of a perfect Artificial Intelligence is directly dependent on the Self realization of Human Beings.
The Human Mind perceives an experience by the activation of different receptors of the brain, at different intensity, analogizing the existing experiences, expectations, beliefs, level of knowledge, inhibitions, fear, emotional exposure, the medium of perception, among several other things. Then the ideas created by the new experience is rejected, reconciled, accepted or a series of new ideas are triggered. The information is stored then. Further new experience which activates any of the receptors of prior experience, help us in creating analogies within similar situation or situations which are entirely different. The large set of these analogies which are accepted in different fields of knowledge and reconciled to a higher idea contains the source of realization of mind. Beware, this is just one simple example, the realization is far more complex.
He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.
Learning to be Comfortable being Uncomfortable:
Now, coming back to the feelings of Love and Overview effect.
Love is an all encompassing feeling of compassion, an eternal motivating force for all the human endeavors, the feeling that led to the creation of this universe according to many religions, without it, crude brutality would have pervaded this planet resulting in chaos and destruction.
Overview effect is a relatively new feeling and experienced by only a fortunate few, but it must be affecting areas of mind and rejuvenating receptors which occurs while perceiving the feeling of love, it creates a different category of love, which further concludes the picture of the feeling of love.
So, the realization requires our true self to be ever expanding, undeterred by varying degrees of emotions, subjecting ourselves to the difficult situations thrown to us by life, winning the battles, on course to winning the war of attainment of our higher selves.
