    Perhaps we do not WANT to love someone, but we do anyways. I would say out of EVERYTHING, love is the greatest (and therefore also the worst.) We cannot have the good without the bad: sour makes the opposite so much sweeter! On a side note does the following classify as EVERYTHING: in mathematics there are only four operators:

    +*-/

    ...should we assign each operator a number:

    +=1
    *=2
    -=3
    /=4

    and apply the following:

    1*2*3*4

    ...does this give us everything?

    Put simply EVERY possible calculation is achieved:

    +*-/
    +*/-
    +-*/
    +-/*
    +/*-
    +/-*

    *+-/
    *+/-
    *-+/
    *-/+
    */+-
    */-+

    -+*/
    -+/*
    -*+/
    -*/+
    -/+*
    -/*+

    /+*-
    /+-*
    /*+-
    /*-+
    /-+*
    /-*+

    There are ONLY twenty-four possible combinations (1*2*3*4). That is ALL! Of course this excludes an equals sign (=) but that is always the fifth operator and is needed to provide the answer. I have attempted to discover the correct order of the operators as follows but without much luck (so far). An operator must be assigned to a number but must EQUAL the number given, for example,

    12345
    +*-/=

    1+2*3-4/5=1

    The closest I have come, and the order I am most satisfied with is:

    (5*4)/((3+2)-1)=20/4=5

    So then ((X*4)/4)=X (which it does.)

    However to return to your philosophical posing I believe everyone wants love, but only if it IS love. We are with nothing should we not have love. I myself wish to FEEL love but until that moment will reject all. I believe such an entity only arrives AFTER one is prepared for such a thing: love only comes to those who are aware of such thing, and not before. Hence nobody loves...!

    Stalking is when two people take a long romantic walk together, but only one of them knows about it.

    OK, Counter said something funny - and it wasn't unintentionally so.
