How often have you heard people saying, “Love is blind?” Is love really blind or does it just cloud your mind and prevent you from seeing things clearly?
Apparently scientists did not take that saying lightly. They have shown that love and desire actually start from above the neck, and not below the belt, according to a newspaper report that I read recently. In the same report, it stated that brain scan studies have shown that character judgment is impaired when a person is in love.
In one study published in August, neurobiologist Semir Zeki from the University College of London found that when people see a pleasing image, part of their brains hums with activity.
As part of the study, 18 Japanese volunteers were shown almost 150 pictures, which include former Japanese premier Junichiro Koizumi, a mobile phone and ice cream. The images were designed to stimulate their sense of desire – though not necessarily of the sexual kind – while Professor Zeki examined scans of their brains.
Findings showed that the brain sparked to life when confronted with the pictures. Pleasurable or undesirable stimuli, like attractive or ugly faces, generated almost the same response while neutral stimuli, such as inanimate objects, did not. The study certainly shed some light on one of the greatest mysteries to man.
In so speaking, is there a switch or button in the brain where we can turn on or push it to attract the person we want to attract? And in the case of many who become ‘blind’ to all the things that their loved ones did.
“Love is not blind, “It sees more and not less, but because it sees more it is willing to see less.” – Will Moss
I couldn’t have put it better than Will Moss. Do you agree with what Will Moss said? I agree with what Will Moss said and with that we should be seeing more of our loved ones and yet at the same time be willing to see less. We should be more loving to our loved ones, be more patience, more understanding and less haste to criticize.
Have you been in a situation before where you were ‘blinded’ by love? Or because of love, you choose to see less?
