Reflections On The Mystery of Love

October 23, 2018 at 10:23 pm (Commentary, Literature, love, Science, Science-Fiction, Vampire novel) (, , , , )

“Love is a mystery, the world’s greatest mystery, a mystery so great that even I Hercules Poirot the world’s greatest detective will never be able to solve it.”
– Hercules Poirot the great Belgian detective created by British writer Agatha Christie

“Who has seen the wind? Neither you nor I. Yet we have all felt its effects.”
-Canadian writer W.O. Mitchell in his book Who Has Seen The Wind?

God is love and he that abideth in love abideth in God and God in him.
– I John 4:8

“There is no God.”
-Stephen Hawking

The fool has said in his heart, There is no God.
– Psalm 14:1

General to Egypt’s King Ptolemy I:
I regret to say your Majesty that the great mathematician Euclid has died of insanity.

Ptolemy I: And what brought about this insanity?

General: He was trying to find a mathematical equation to explain love.

-From an ancient Egyptian manuscript discovered by the billionaire ancient Egyptian vampire Set’s personal Egyptologist Dr. Edgar Lovecraft Ashbury

Michelangelo the Psychic Lobster had a vision in his lobster tank at London’s Set Enterprises on how a future scene would be written in a great science-fiction novel:

Paul looked at Lasetter, “You look like you’ve seen a ghost?”.

Lasetter indeed looked pale (he really should spend more time out in the sunlight), “I wish I had.”

From the expression on Lasetter’s face, Paul figured that now would not be the time to tell him that the IRS had dropped by half an hour ago to tell him that he Lasseter was now the subject of a tax audit.

“What’s wrong?” Paul asked.

“It’s Akira,” Lasetter answered, “She’s gone totally off the rails. She’s up and done something that I have no explanation for.”

“What’s she done?” Paul asked with trepidation feeling the butterflies in his stomach and wondering what bizarre meteorological phenomenon was taking place on the other side of the world as a result of all this.

“She’s fallen in love,” Lasseter peed his pants.

“She’s what?” Paul handed him a towel and started to look around for the nearest washroom himself.

“Fallen in love?” Paul gasped, “How the Hell did that happen?”.

“How the Hell should I know?” Lasetter retorted, “An AI sex robot actually falling in love? I’m afraid no matter how hard I’ve tried to formulate one, there are no algorithms to explain the origin of the phenomenon of love.”

“You mean to say there’s actually something you don’t know?” Paul was genuinely shocked.

“Apparently,” Lasetter took a nice long hard sip on his phallus shaped whiskey flask.

    Lesester peep on ber pants??…really?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    OMG! I couldn’t wait until tonight! I am both flattered and amused by your continuation of the Paul/Lasseter/Akira story…so much so…I may incorporate your writing into the Great Unknown Science Fiction Novel. Thank you, Dracul!!!

    I’m so excited I want to give you a hug for validating me!!!

    LoL πŸ˜‚ I really like the intro and especially the part about going insane trying to find a math formula for love and then Lasetter pees his pants from Akira falling in love. As funny as it is, it’s all true. We never struggle to understand violence. It’s something anyone can do with great success yet for love the world’s population is left bereft of love, which is not the same as copulating like rabbits and filling up all the earth’s arable land with an over abundance of hominids.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Very true, Daniel.

      Psychologists and psychiatrists seem to have no problem coming up with convincing explanations to explain the root causes of violence.

      But when asked to explain the root causes of love, they come across as babbling idiots.

      No one seems to be able to come up with a truly rational explanation for its origins.

      The most enigmatic people (enigmatic in the good sense rather than the bad sense) that I have ever encountered in my life are my dad, an Anglican clergyman called Father Lloyd Gedge and Sherry.

      Individuals so overflowing with love and compassion, they truly impact and change the lives of everyone they meet.

      Such individuals I can say are truly rare.

      Most of us lie in a gray area somewhere in between the likes of my dad, Father Gedge and Sherry and the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot.

      But love is truly the pearl of great price.

      • Hyperion said,

        I agree, especially with regards to our dear friend Sherry. I like to imagine that love is the glue that binds the universe together and thus it binds us as well.

  6. George F. said,

    I one time asked you if perhaps it isn’t genius to state the obvious. Upon reflection, I noticed if you watch a TV reporter, all they are doing is telling you what you are seeing, then interpreting the event. (Which is why I don’t watch much TV. I KNOW what I’m seeing and don’t need the interpretation.) So I’ve determined that it is a level of genius to state the obvious…only because it’s not obvious too everyone. So I’ll keep writing, because what’s obvious and clichΓ© to me is not so to everyone, including readers. And if it IS obvious, even intelligent readers need constant reaffirmation of their reality.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I’ve noticed that the truly great and truly funny comedians are those who are able to point out the truly obvious in situations – things that are so obvious that most of us miss it in our every day lives.

      True genius and true humour are like Edgar Allan Poe’s Purloined Letter- something hiding in plain sight.
