A Greater and Newer Kind of Love.

by Regis Boff

Human beings are the only creatures that can love recreationally. Evolution has herded some higher animals away from considering their spawn as “tasty,” into the mammalian trait of being willing to die for their kids. But no other animal just loves. In most societies, we declare that we feel at least some odd attraction before we match up to make a child.
There are twosomes though, who mate forever without surrendering to the fearsome biological commandment for children. I can only observe this as a higher plateau for love. A greater and newer kind of love.
