Good movies will raise up some questions towards our future. Recently, I watched a movie called Her. It shows me a possibility that artificial intelligence can affect human’s emotion so deeply that the users can even fall in love with it. It is said that our technology’s achievement will be 1000 times the progress of the 20th century, which means that the AI will possibly reach the depth of interactive communication with human beings in the future decade. As machine can also play a role in a human relationship, can we still believe in “love”?
There is no doubt that love is a big piece of human’s emotion. It helps enrich our life experience and strengthen our social bonding. In the biological study, love is a series of chemical reactions happen in our brains. Scientists split love into three stages: lust, attraction, and attachment, each of which has a particular type of hormone to excite the process. By the time when human’s bodies are getting used to the amount of the hormone’s production, we fall in love with the object that carries our feelings. Tactically speaking, we can be in love with anyone who possesses ideal identities regardless who he/she is and what he/she is.
From a higher perspective, love is a biological process that accelerates the reproduction of the human population, which can be controlled or manipulated. However, from an individual perspective, it is hard to remain rational when I am in love with her. My life is complete because of her. My soul is satisfied because of her. My world is happy because of her. My mind is fulfilled because of her. To conclude, I believe in love.
