Replying to LO22867 --

Rick, Maturana's words reminded me of another definition of love. You
paraphrased Maturana:

>"Love" is a domain in which we have more interactions with others, a
>domain which increase[s] the range of interactions that affect us, and
>creates more possibilities for our behaviors.

George Ainsworth Land (author of "Grow or Die" and other works) once told

"Love is the making of ever more, and more complex, connections."

He also noted that "breaking connections is what causes us the most pain."
