The State Without Love

We can live 3 minutes without air, about 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food. How long can we survive without love?

Because love is not a measurable substance, we can’t set a number on love’s value. We do have evidence that people living together survive longer than people living alone. Years longer.

What’s a year of life worth? A year with love.

Newspapers and TV news programs contain financial sections. But no love section. Why is the state of money more important than the state of love?

Is love increasing or decreasing in the world?
That fact that many people must think about that question tells us a lot about the state of love; a state in which more and more people are living alone and living in conflict. More and more people are in a state without love.

Global warming seems to run parallel with emotional cooling. How long can we survive with too little love and too much warmth?
How sustainable is a state without love?


“The dictates of money are in conflict with the needs of love.
People want love, love needs people.”
