What and Why to Love
The use of “what” as a relative pronoun is in relation to an object. When love is concerned, what is referring to a person. The object could be “that” person, the one “whom” one loves. Unlike who, “what” and “why” to love is making reference to an enlightenment, details, clarification, and explanation of the love object.
“What love” is apologetic, sorry to be having it, asking to repeat it, asking to be forgiven about it, questioning its intent, and insinuating not being able to find love. “What” when followed by about, as in “what about love for that person” is cognitive asking for an explanation. How often family and friends ask about love and marriage?
“Why love” questions the purpose and ultimate function of love. In a way the question asking “why” may be more commensurate with love in a teleological sense. Love’s purposes are many. And a question why can prepare the feelings for the purpose in the future. The question asking “what or who” to love may separate the feelings from the love in a cognitive and behavioral process, affecting the timing of arriving at love in space.
When and Where to Love
When and where make reference to the place and time love would take place. Time and space are embedded in all experiences. The time continuum from the past, to the present and to the future entails duration, about that love may take hold. While, whilst, and “what time” may mean the same cognitively while at the same time the meaning of the feeling about love may differ given the time continuum. The time factor sets up anticipation. The anticipation can be punctuated in nature as in what time shall love take place that may blunt the feelings or in past to future continuum that may induce spiritual, sentimental or romantic feelings that combine with love. The sexuality in each case can differ.
The space in which love takes place can interact with the time factor to change the state of one’s feelings. For example, if the distance to the person one loves is far and yet the time to see them for Christmas is near induces feelings or meanings that may be different that when the distance is near and Christmas time is near. If the place in which love is experienced is large, small, elevated, up, down, a decline or level can interact with the time continuum in changing the feelings and emotions.
