Are We More Then Our Biology?

Are we more then our biology or are we our biology?

Are we simply a combination of complex chemicals that produce artificial love and it really doesn’t exist? i.e complex combination of chemicals love your best friend.

Or love goes beyond our biology and we’re something more.

What are your thoughts. These thoughts are dark to me, but for once I won’t to hear others thoughts on it, instead of keeping it inside my mind.

I have often pondered this before. I do not think love is artificial, because I cannot think of an example of natural love that does not fit the same description. It would seem to me that natural love is the product of complex chemical interactions. The same thing can be contemplated regarding consciousness; it is merely depolarization of electrical gradients. Does that mean that consciousness is artificial, too? Maybe. I have to wonder: Watching a documentary is simply a set of Light Emitting Diodes responding to a processors interpretation of 0’s and 1’s. Even if the documentary is simply 1’s and 0’s, it is still a real experience to me.

Despite playing a little devil’s advocate, I do understand where you are coming from. My best guess at the moment, based on my experiences of late, is that the chemical, and biological and electrical working of our minds and bodies are only a piece of the picture. To me, it is merely a slice of what is going on. It is the supporting structure for this phenomenon that exists in our three dimensional reality. Call it the spiritual realm, the psychedelic realm, the meditative realm or whatever you want, but too me I think the seat of consciousness and love lie somewhere outside our perception; perhaps it exists in a higher dimension. The only thing I do know for sure, is that I do not know anything for sure.

We are complex creature.

If what you say is true that we are protein based creatures at the mercy of every synapses that comes firing what do you make of choices presented to you by chance?

As an individual do you feel the gravity and depth of emotions same as the other?

Do you think that soul is but chemicals in your head… That ideas are formulated the very same way?

Your totality is one part battery shell and the other energy.

Are we simply a combination of complex chemicals?
Yep.

Does that make love artificial?
Nope. The opposite is true, if it wasn’t just biology it would be artificial.

Are we more than biology?
Yes. Physics and chemistry, all the laws of the universe.

Are these thoughts dark or negative?
Nope. Not at all. Wanting something that is opposite of truth is what makes it seem dark, it’s just resistance and ego lies.
