From a metaphysical or philosophical perspective, love is more of a complex interweaving of many emotions, behaviors and intangibles whose origin, influence and potential has been food for thought over thousands of years and likely will be for thousands more to come.

A Field View of Reality to Explain Human Interconnectedness

Is it true the physical world we see with our eyes is the essence or nature of reality? For much of human history, this is what scientists and most people around the world have believed.

Inroads In Trauma Treatment: Self-Regulating Emotions

"The subjective experience of trauma is unique and varies according to the individual and the type of trauma.
