Subject: RE: BS: How do you define it?
Number 6, you said: "You look at them and see them as something seperate, something in them you want to be."

Yeah, that happens and we call it "love", but I don't think it really is love. I think it's admiration, attraction, and desire. Admiration can be a good thing, but when it becomes too extreme, it's called infatuation.

The perception that the other is "separate" is physically correct, but spiritually speaking may be entirely false. That, in fact, is said to be the illusion upon which our entire sensory world of illusion ("maya") is built. We may wake up from that illusion when we die.
