I asked on the actualized.org forum what is love and they told me attention. When I told them that attention could be anything and not necessarily love and that you can have attention without love. They locked my thread for questioning their answers.
The above link seems to say something similar, but in a different vein. I know attention is a component of love sure, but I feel like there is something more to it. I pay attention in class but that doesn’t mean I love it. But I love the ocean and water, and something about it just churns up feelings and emotions that I would classify as greater than simply attention. It’s deep and strong and powerful.
So I’m wondering how true the love being attention is, because hate is also attention. But while they are both “attention” it would not be right to call both love and hate attention, there has to be something more to it than that.
