snorting love & loving poly

the brain on love

“a relatively small area of the human brain is active in love, compared with that involved in, say, ordinary friendship.

[…] So the brains of people deeply in love do not look like those of people experiencing strong emotions, but instead like those of people snorting coke.” >>>
