So ancient is the desire for one another which implanted in us . reuniting our original nature, seeking to make one of two and healing the state of man . * In the book symposium 385-370 BC Plato says : “ humans originally had two faces . Four arms, four legs , and they were happy like that . Complete... And then they define the god so the god splits us in two as a punishment, tore us away from our other halves. He said each of us , when separated is always looking for our other half, it’s our nature. But when one is met with this other half... the pair is lost in an amazement of love, friendship, intimacy. And one will not be seen out of the other’s sight. See the reason is... human nature was once originally one and we were whole , and the desire and the pursuit of the whole..... is called love” * And That was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read.
