  1. It seems to me that “compassion” is more appropriate emotion for what you’re talking about it. “Love” on this scale seems a bit, I don’t know, fervent. Friends and family, sure, love it is; but strangers on the street, I guess it’s more like compassion.

    I mean, I know what you’re getting at, but I don’t think it’s possible to sustain the emotion of “universal love” for very long without resorting to top knots, bongo banging, and singing odes to Hare Krishna.

  2. If that is true, we as humans are failing miserably at it.

    Of course, that assumes there actually is a purpose for us being here. However, we are the result of millions of years of evolution, with ‘self’ being the byproduct of brain activity.

    That being said, love is an excellent ideal to reach for. We need to do it better so our limited time of existance can be more bearable.
