Love Conqers All
Debate Rounds (4)
What is love? Love is attachment, commitment, intimacy, passion, grief upon separation and jealousy are words to describe it. But love is actually an emotional connection between people that causes chemical responses. Love lowers stress, anxiety and isolation, increases the safety of well being, social motivation and positive social integration.  Love primarily promotes positive feelings and chemicals. "The reason people are so attracted to cocaine is that it activates the area of the brain that makes you feel good. The same reward area is activated when people are experiencing the intense desire of romantic love." Arthur Aron, PhD.  Love lowers the feeling of pain, in a study done, the scientists used MRI scans and recorded what was happening to the participants brains while they looked at picture of their loved ones and someone of the same sex as their partner. The device got increasingly hotter as time went on and the patients were frequently asked to record their pain from a scale of 0 - 10 (0 being no pains and 10 being worst pain possible). They also asked the participants questions that had nothing to do with the experiment, to simulate distraction. The brain imaging showed that both love and distraction reduced pain. 
Now back to stress, it is known that stressors can trigger a search for pleasure and closeness, this is because it will promote a re-balance of altered physiological and psychological states. Large amounts of stress can effect someone's life and survival. Love has been found to increase levels of dopamine, which causes a rush of pleasure just like cocaine does. Serotonin, which plays an important role in regulation of learning, mood, sleep and vasoconstriction. Oxytocin, has major roles in birth, lactation, maternal bonding, social bonding, awareness, trust and empathy. Vasopressin, helps prevent the loss of water by reducing urine output and helping the kidneys reabsorb water in the body.

Fear has inspired MUCH more than what is on this list, nearly infinitely more. Fear has influenced wars, battles, it kept oppressed people in their places. Joseph Stalin used his gu-laug as a fear to keep the little people working. Fear has the potential for a person to run 3 miles straight without even getting winded. With love you would probably out after a mile, and I am talking about shuttle-running, maximum speed towards the end.
Love and fear are different. Fear promotes negative things, love promotes health and happiness. I've proved this.
