INQUISITION 5: The Physics of Love
Anecdotal experiences have proclaimed the existence of love as a physical force for centuries. Such proclamations frequently included 'telepathy' or mind-to-mind communication between people as well.
One example of that force has been the concept of 'cording' or an emotionally connective bond between a mother and newborn child. This concept of 'cording' between a mother and an infant suggests that the child communicates directly and non-verbally with the mother. Further, this idea has been expanded to include relations between adults in love. A detailed discussion of the concept is presented here http://www.itstime.com/cording.htm
However, the discussion lacks verifiable experiments and relies on anecdotal and metaphysical explanations. The discussion has been unconvincing despite the proclamations of many individuals.
History provides records of many people attempting to prove telepathic communications or attempting to scam money from such attempts. The scam relied on the expectation of the audience that such a thing is possible. Science has been able to disprove these events. A short history of some of the previous attempts to explain the phenomenon, which have been debunked by science, is presented here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telepathy
SCIENCE ASSERTS THAT ILLNESS CAN BE CAUSED BY LOVE
It is documented that love can create physical manifestations in the body identical to physical illnesses. Phenylethylamine, dopamine and oxytocin are chemicals that create symptoms of illness and are released by the body during intense love experiences. A summary of studies by DivineCaroline in February 24, 2009 is here http://www.thefrisky.com/2009-02-24/physical-effects-falling-in-love/
REMOTE BRAIN STIMULATION
Also, now it is possible to stimulate various portions of the brain with remote wireless devices; http://www.sciencemag.org/content/early/2015/03/11/science.1261821
SCIENCE CANNOT VERIFY TELEPATHY
At this time, my reading of the science is that science cannot demonstrate the existence of telepathy or mind-to-mind communication without some form of physical assistance.
NEW EXPERIMENT SUGGESTS THAT MAY CHANGE
But, a new development suggests that it will be demonstrable some day. In the article titled 'Conscious Brain-to-Brain Communication in Humans Using Non-Invasive Technologies,' scientists discuss a demonstration of a long distance transmission of mental images [http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0105225].
This may be a first step toward developing a telepathic mechanism.
QUANTUM PHYSICS PROVIDES EVIDENCE OF MOLECULAR COMMUNICATION
Additionally, quantum physics suggests that telepathy may be theoretically possible in nature.
'In a study reported in the February 26, 1998 issue of Nature (Vol. 391, pp. 871-874), researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science have now conducted a highly controlled experiment demonstrating how a beam of electrons is affected by the act of being observed. The experiment revealed that the greater the amount of "watching," the greater the observer's influence on what actually takes place.'
Some communication is taking place at a molecular level; science does not have a complete explanation as yet for this phenomenon. But, once explained, this process may well provide proof of love as a natural force.
