The Greek terms are the common definitions (at least the only standard ones) so they were the ones I used. If you know better, please enlighten me. Likewise I found my post adequate but you obviously didn't. So let me try again.


The love between friends, family and lovers work differently. While you love your best friend it is far different from a love of your mother or say your wife. Platonic (or Philiac) love works similarly to the pop phenomena of "Nakama." A deep bond between people. This is common in close-knit quasi-familial units such as military units and acting troops. (Coworkers may have similar connections.) Familial love shares some aspects but a key difference is a sort of biological imperative that is nonexistent in other relations, a sort of instinctual love that is very hard to overcome. Think to certain families with deadbeat dads and/or abusive moms. In situations that cannot be easily broken off, a blood bond is strong (its counterpart, familial hate, is common enough in royalty to be apparent.

Erotic love springs from a different biological imperative and is often confused as it has a physical aspect. Erotic love and arousal/ infatuation are often confused and muddled and truly will continue to be so. Eros is notable in that it is literally intoxicating, causing effects similar to that of cocaine. Erotic love can be almost intense as mind control and rapid changes in personality are common.


The fourth and most strange is what Jesus of Nazareth called agape. A love of god. The more religious of us would note a synonymity with the term worship. This love is notable in that rather tan being tied to a particular person (or group of persons) but instead to an abstract concept and/or a divine presides. This love has been analyzed in that it is the only not proven to exist among all men, although structures for it have been noted in some beings. (A love of Science or Art for example.)


And that’s about it, I hope this helps you out; this was killer on my fingers.  :)

Well it's sort of both, seeing as how they're both in space anyway Jack can make a post about how he launched the Atomna into space on purpose then the Forged Fleet can kill it, then Rithan shows up and then it's a wrap up. After this gets sorted we need to design the tie-ins. (I think we got four in pre-production.)

It's rude to lecture endlessly without input.(Not to mention kind of douchey.)

I did, and we were kind of planning that for a bit. Would you mind and edit? Or explain to me were you're going with this?

ExplainING, as in, continuous process. Had you not interrupted, Grazony would have replied and I would have gone farther.


Eros, which is what you would call Romantic love is pretty self-explanatory. Sex, relationships, cohabitation stuff like that. The "mushy junk."

Philia is what is called "Brotherly love" the classic "Nakama." Jesus and his disciples, some members of this board armed force members and close friends. Philia is what I described
 earlier and what the original query entailed.

There is also agape, but that's a little abstract.
