Physics of Love

Hi,

Can love be explained by physics?

I've been doing some research with no luck. I know there are a few books about however they treat the subject in a spiritual way with no science behind. Then, I've been reading some "theories" about sympathetic vibrations caused by love; oscillations which are excited indirectly by our driver (probably through elements which are not themselves highly resonant, and which will not to continue to resonate long after the source is turned off), and can continue to resonate after the source is turned off. In other words, falling in love by someone generates and keeps an internal reaction without the need of keeping contact with the source. Now, please don't ask me about the maths explanation because I have no clue.

Thanks,
curiousman

I'd start with the replacement of 'physical' by 'chemical'. There are a lot of chemical processes going on, and it's all body chemistry - although very complex.

In order to explain love, you first need a good description of it and list of it properties that at least many would agree to.

Your explanation should also use well defined, commonly understood, scientific terms and concepts.
"our driver" and "the source" would need to be fleshed out.

Considering animal models (like dogs?) might be useful.

I would guess it involves memories and associated emotions.

This smacks of New Age mumbo-jumbo...

Physics is the wrong field for something of Psychology. Your topic is of how people feel what they feel and why. Not for Physics; but Psychology, Biology, maybe Biochemistry(?). Anthropology maybe?
