The Science of Hate: To know what Love is, is it necessary to experience the flipside of the Coin?
Do you think learning about the Science of Hate would enable one to become more of a Hater? Or would it make you realize and welcome in more acts of love compassion and altruism?
I believe the opposite of love is "indifference".
If someone hates you they're still (emotionally invested) or affected by you. Whenever someone no longer feels anything for you when they see you to the point of acting as if they never had any history with you as if you are a total stranger that is the opposite of being loved.
It's been said there's a "thin line" between love and hate.
However the distance between love and indifference is huge.
Not caring about people or what happens to them is the opposite of love. Hate & love are tied to red hot passion. Indifference is COLD.
I don't think studying emotions would effect one's emotion/feelings.
Yes indifference is the worst. It is a coldness that tears right through you. With hate? There's still emotional heat.
Coming back to indifference? The one who feels the less seems to be the one who is keen to puppeteer rather than "be" in it.
Ya, I always thought that the opposite of love was general apathy toward something or one.
Exactly what I was thinking. Both love and hate require some level of caring. Indifference does not.
There is an adrenaline fight or flight response. Fear is the flight response. Hate is the "I want to kill you, you threat".

If you take all emotions, they can be put into 2 categories - love and fear - all animals have the basics of "love" (not sure if there is a better word) and "fear" Hate is really fear. Jealousy...

If there is a thin line between love and hate, then what have we all decided is the separating...factor, or does a line even exist?

Is it Love or Hate that has a bigger impact?

Hate is a strong word; Can a person truly hate one they once loved? Is hate not pain all it's own?
