What the *bleep* do we know?

Just watched this movie again Saturday night, and jury's still out on whether it's completely and intensely correct or complete drivel. Or both. What I did appreciate was the theory of cellular memory and the aging process. Though am not quite certain how to utilize and apply said information. Maybe that'll come in time.

So someone at Cleveland Craigslist's Rants and Raves section asked "What is love?" - all philosophical and deep, presumably after a long Saturday night. I answered his post, but then realized that this is just what love means to me...not necessarily to everyone. And while the response was purely true from my perspective, would venture to say it amounted to an incredibly tall order. One that maybe not anyone else would feel towards another person. Here's hoping the self-proclaimed questioning heterosexual male doesn't take it to heart and thus speed right off a cliff into suicide.

It's not understanding what love is that's difficult; it's understanding what another person really wants. That's tricky. Sometimes life would be infinitely easier if you could just immediately ask other people "What do you want from me?" when you start to know them. Would save so much time and indecision, not to mention misunderstandings and heartache. It would also be so much easier to express difficult emotions that way - like caring, anger and feelings of abandonment. Well, truthfully, it would only be really easy for me if I could do it from a safe, assured, clear distance...like another continent.
