Was it a vision,or a waking dream? 音乐远去了:——我醒着,还是在酣眠?

And touch the stubble plains with rosy hue; 这时小小的蚊蚋悲哀地合唱

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty

And haply the Queen-Moon is on her throne,

Peacefully my feet hit the sand and ever since that day,

So, it began to occur to me that maybe your biology pulls you towards some people rather than another. And I have concocted a questionnaire to see to what degree you express dopamine, serotonin, estrogen and testosterone. I think we've evolved four very broad personality types associated with the ratios of these four chemicals in the brain. And on this dating site that I have created, called Chemistry.com, I ask you first a series of questions to see to what degree you express these chemicals, and I'm watching who chooses who to love. And 3.7 million people have taken the questionnaire in America.

And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;

So, right now, Lucy Brown and I, the neuroscientist on our project, are looking at the data of the people who were put into the machine after they had just been dumped. It was very difficult actually, putting these people in the machine, because they were in such bad shape. (Laughter) So anyway, we found activity in three brain regions. We found activity in the brain region, in exactly the same brain region associated with intense romantic love.

I have been half in love with easeful Death,


I know, I'm all for people following theirdreams,

Up the hill-side;and now ’tis buried deep 在附近的密林幽谷:


So we are living with great technology, great science, but no religion at all, no poetry at all. We are using each other as if we were things. People have become commodities to be used and discarded. People are no more people; because a person becomes a person only when he is touched by love.


我想这源自远古时期, 男人们藏在灌木丛中, 看着前方, 并想着用手中的石块砸向野牛的头。

Even captain hook you are my perfect story book,

Fade far away, dissolve, and quite forget

No where to go and no place to call home,

Up from the ashes Your love has brought us

But, in embalmed darkness, guess each sweet

To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells

If it don't hurt now then just wait, just wait a while,

Past the nearmeadows, over the still stream, 飘上了山腰,如今已深深地埋湮

O, for a draught of vintage! that hath been

I know when I have children they will knowwhat it means,

So, what have I learned from this experiment that I would like to tell the world? Foremost, I have come to think that romantic love is a drive, a basic mating drive. Not the sex drive -- the sex drive gets you out there, looking for a whole range of partners. Romantic love enables you to focus your mating energy on just one at a time, conserve your mating energy, and start the mating process with this single individual.


So let's all get together, we can all befree,

《What Do I Know?》是由英国新生代歌手Ed Sheeran 2017年新专辑《Deluxe》中的第10首歌曲。歌曲是典型的Ed Sheeran式轻快哼唱,我们能从中听出Ed作为一名艺术家对于功利与政治的不屑以及对生活的热爱,他相信当生活过的不够好时,要始终怀有一颗充满爱的心,音乐和爱也许只能暂时改变世界,但我又懂些什么呢?(what do I know?)

Well you can ring anybody's bell to get what you want,

关于爱情 还有很多未解开的迷。 现在我简短地说一下 我正研究问题: 为什么你会爱上他,而不是别人? 原本我并没有想要去思考这个问题, 但在三年前,一个约会网站Match.com找到我, 并问了我这个问题。 我只能说“我不知道”。 我所知道的是人们恋爱时,大脑中到底发生了什么, 但我却不知道 为什么他就是你命中注定的爱人。 所以,这三年我都在思考这个问题。 心理学家告诉我们 一定有很多原因使你爱上他,而不是另一个人。 我们会倾向于 在同等的社会、经济背景, 同样智力水平, 同等的相貌, 以及相同的宗教信仰中找到自己的爱人。 而童年的经历也会影响人们的爱情,但如何作用却无人知晓。 就是这些,心理学家知道的只有这些。 而且,他们不知道在良好的关系中, 双方的人格是如何配合的。

Where the children of tomorrow dream away

I think of all the poetry that I've read about romantic love, what sums it up best is something that is said by Plato, over 2,000 years ago. He said, "The god of love lives in a state of need. It is a need. It is an urge. It is a homeostatic imbalance. Like hunger and thirst, it's almost impossible to stamp out." I've also come to believe that romantic love is an addiction: a perfectly wonderful addiction when it's going well, and a perfectly horrible addiction when it's going poorly.

《1-800-273-8255》是美国说唱歌手Logic和Alessia Cara、Khalid合唱的歌曲,歌曲发行于2017年4月28日,被收录在Logic第三张录音室专辑《Everybody》中。这首歌在丹麦、美国、瑞典、澳大利亚的排行榜取得前五名的成绩。

To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,永远清醒地感到那甜蜜的动荡;

When somebody hugs you your whole body becomes alive. Those people are very poor who have never been hugged; they are living in a dead body. Nobody made their body alive, hence so much hankering to be touched, the need to get some warmth.


Last but not least, we found activity in a brain region associated with deep attachment to another individual. No wonder people suffer around the world, and we have so many crimes of passion. When you've been rejected in love, not only are you engulfed with feelings of romantic love, but you're feeling deep attachment to this individual. Moreover, this brain circuit for reward is working, and you're feeling intense energy, intense focus, intense motivation and the willingness to risk it all to win life's greatest prize.

Save me from bloodguilt, O God, the God who saves me, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
