46. Love isn't special at all.
Love is general. It's the specialness of physical existence that separates us from each other.

You keep asking "how do you know, how do you know?" . . . I would only ask in return that you tell me your age. (You may well assert that such a fact is not important, but I believe it is. What you are writing is exactly what I have said and defended in other times of my life, and I have a whole different way of understanding now.)

"You have no idea what the universe is..." is what you wrote above, and of course that's not true. I do have some ideas, and I can give you a pretty good accounting of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis and how it brought about what we know as matter. You refuse to make conjectures without some sort of basis for it, but I'm willing to make broader conjecture, much broader than when I believed that science was the end of knowing.

Now if you're as old as I, I'll have some different kinds of questions. But my guess is that you are much younger than I am, with experiences and understandings similar to mine when I was asking the same questions.
