We have researched such phenomenons as infatuation and love as well as concepts, related to them. The special feature of our approach and its novelty lay in the fact that for the first time these aspects have been studied from the position of their foundation at all levels of matter.
In this study we have, for the first time, united and synthesized knowledge of these phenomenons, known by other sciences. We have studied physical and biochemical foundation of infatuation and love, disclosed their essence at social level of matter organization (including psychologic aspect). We have touched upon many philosophic problems that refer to structure of matter, fundament of consciousness, emotion, and other psychic phenomenons, suggested a line of attendant hypothesis, theories, and concepts. We have uncovered essence of ideology and suggested a model of “new ideology” – ideology of love, presented a scientific foundation of morality, explained culturological aspect of infatuation and love phenomenons.
The basic hypothesis of our research, statement that infatuation and love are different feelings that come to action by different mechanisms, has found a complete confirmation. Different biomechanical and physiological foundations of love and infatuation have been found.
Particular hypothesis of the research have also been confirmed.
1. We have reasoned the fact that foundation of infatuation and love consist in subphysical, physical, and biochemical processes that occur in human brain, and described them.
2. We have revealed a relation between individual psychological features of people (type of nervous system, traits of character, abilities) and personality types according to subjective infatuation experience.
3. We have explained a fundamental possibility of modeling psychic on the whole as well as infatuation or love, and related it directly to project of creating a New human.
The objective of this research, designated in the introduction and consisted in creation of an integral, consistent scientific-philosophic theory of infatuation and love and developing a complex of recommendations and other applicatory outcomes, has been fully accomplished. The follosing problems were solved in process:
We have analyzed theories of psychic, thoughts and feelings, infatuation and love as well as thei foundation, suggested our own hypothesis of infatuation and love fundament at all levels of matter.
According to the made analysis a scientific-philosophic theory of infatuation and love was constructed (their essence uncovered, concepts, signs, types, stages, genesis presented).
Methodic of diagnosing infatuation and love was developed.
Theoretic conclusion and practical recommendations on studying infatuation and love were formed.
The main ideas of the research have been defined. We have come to conclude that infatuation and love are different concepts that have different foundation. Infatuation is a combination of feelings and emotional states, related to an attractor (object of sexual appeal) and based upon uncontrolled reverbation of ion current within the limits of one stimulation center (totality of emotional centers). Love is not simply an ability to experience (or not) feelings and emotional states, not a positive trait of character, love is a certain level of human energy, based upon a controlled reverberation of ion current in different emotional centers.
Let us take a detailed look into characteristic of the results, achieved in process of studying the analyzed phenomenons.
In the first part “RESEARCH OF SUBPHYSICAL AND PHYSICAL FOUNDATION OF INFATUATION AND LOVE” we suggested hypothesis (at the level of philosophic guess) on structure of matter, including one on existence of a new form of matter (subphysical) that can help us explain a number of psychological phenomenons that touch upon infatuation and love.
We have outlined that pour research is undertaken within the frame of planned inter-disciplinary knowledge, pilot title of which was defined as “Theoretic and experimental scientific philosophy” and “Theoretic psychology”.
The heart of theoretic and experimental scientific philosophy is the theory of matter and system of philosophic categories. The concept of matter was formed upon the foundation of the constructed unwind systems of philosophic categories. We defined matter through the closest family and specific difference as well as though listing the main signs of matter:
1) final, utmost category of philosophy;
2) totality of objects;
3) carrier of attribute characteristics of objects;
4) universal substratum and universal substance (foundation);
5) objectively existing reality that does not depend on its properties and conditions.
According to the scheme “System of philosophic categories” (Scheme 1.1.2/1) place of infatuation and love in structure of matter was defined.
The following ideas and hypothesis have been outlined within the theory of matter.
We have suggested to classify matter forms as subphysical, physical, chemical, biological, social, postsocial (cybernetic).
The following types of matter and its cosmological levels have been defined:
1) Subphoton matter (minus the first fractal);
2) Foton matter (“our” zero fractal);
3) Above-metagalactic system (hypothetic material structure of above-metagalactic level; in this work we also name it as Cybermatter for the matter type).
Author’s classification of matter characteristics was presented.
Laws of matter were formed.
We have suggested a hypothesis on structure of matter, fractal nature of it and fractal units; hypothesis on fundamental possibility of creating a visual models of elementary particles; hypothesis of physical fields and energy as carriers of information.
Information was defined as a property of matter, one of mechanisms in process of reflection that includes data on material systems and their changes.
Principle of information equality as a fundamental law of nature was formed. We have also suggested a hypothesis of subphoton (subphysical) form of matter; hypothesis of postsocial form of mater, “posthuman”, or cybernetic form of matter (cybermatter).
We have formulated a hypothesis on modeling psychic processes, including infatuation infatuation and love that differs qualitatively from the currently known models and projects. Its basic difference from the other models is the complex integral scientific-philosophic approach that synthesizes data of all particular sciences in the studied problems.
We have pointed out the necessity to create subphoton mechanics – the suggested new department of physics of elementary particles that will study the structure of stable elementary particles (proton, electron, photon) as well as laws and principles of storing, transferring, and collecting information at the level of elementary particles, mechanism of self-assembling of physical matter from subphysical.
Hypothesis have been stated that explain mechanisms of predicting future, past, as well as mechanisms of reproducing information at the level of social matter.
Principle of self-assembling of psychic images has been studied.
Law of information flow movement has been formulated: informational flows move according to the principle of information equality that serves as a fundamental law of nature.
Ideas on mechanism of reproducing past and future have been stated. We have suggested a new method of transferring, storing, and reproducing information that differs qualitatively from machines.
We have suggested a General (biophysical) scheme of forming emotions and thoughts that served as foundation for a General scheme of forming infatuation. The General scheme of forming emotion and thoughts confirms our hypothesis on an indirect role of thinking, according to which thinking is mediated by emotions.
In the second part “RESEARCH OF BIOCHEMICAL AND PHYSIOLOGICALFOUNDATION OF INFATUATION AND LOVE” we studied hormonal theories of “infatuation biochemistry” and presented a theoretical foundation for constructing physiological model of infatuation and love.
This edition includes a specially-developed scheme: “Objects of theoretic psychology” and introduced in it new objects of research (psychic phenomenons, psychic energy of human, etc., see Scheme 2/1). In the scheme we have also looked into many aspects that are not currently being studied by scientific psychology. In our opinion, such problems should not be ignored, and we shall study all these novelties within the suggested independent inter-disciplinary science (Theoretic psychology).
We have studied and analyzed so-called hormonal theories of “infatuation biochemistry”, revealed their disadvantages, and pointed out other factors that should be considered in constructing physiological theory of infatuation and love.
We should specially outline the developed theory of hedonistic pattern that serves as a certain key to understanding the essence of motivational component of human. This theory includes theory of primary and secondary needs as well as abilities, related to fulfilling them. We have come to conclude that secondary needs (for relationship, friendship, infatuation, and love; acknowledgement and self-realization) are superstructures and compensatory, they are related to impossibility to receive happiness from fulfilling primary needs (for self-preservation, satisfying thirst, hunger, realizing reproductive function, communication). From our point of view, a true and basic need of human is receiving joy, positive emotions (at physiological level it is related to need for removing electric stress from neuron network and stimulating the corresponding systems of reward). Impossibility to realize this need via easy way (through primary needs) results in emergence of secondary needs that in the end will allow them to receive joy and positive emotions. In our opinion, any goals, set by a person, any thoughts and feelings are an informational casing that can change. At the same time essence of physiological, biochemical, physical, and subphysical mechanisms remains the unchanged – it is turning emotional centers on and off, removing stress from electric neuron network, and stimulating the corresponding system of rewards.
Thus, for the first time we have presented an idea on principal possibility to compare a specific emotion to its physiological equivalent. We have come to conclude that the whole variety of emotions and feelings can be narrowed down to a specific strictly-differentiated “work” of emotional centers (totality of neuron networks).
Connection between emotions and thoughts has also been revealed. Emotion of fear was defined as the basic emotion. We have studied mechanism of its formation and concluded that emotion of fear emerges at the foundation of operation in emotional centers (neurochemical noradrenergetic systems). This emotion anticipates thoughts and motivation (to action).
Further we have developed the hypothesis on that in evolutional aspect noradrenergetic neurochemical system had emerged before all other neurochemical systems. The following three basic emotions were outlined: fear, anger, joy. Other emotions (positive and negative) are formed upon the basic ones and take origin in them. At the same time negative emotions are related to avoiding “overstress” of neurons and are unfavorable for our organism; positive emotions are related to removing neuron stress and stimulating systems of reward (other emotional centers, via gradual redistribution of energy – ion current).
Then we have defined such concepts as “organic”, organic damage of brain, described influence of genetic and other factors upon development of a certain type of organic, studied the relation between psychological and physiological processes at the example of aggressive behavior. Author’s informational theory of aggression was formulated.
According to the study of such concept as “organic” and it physiological foundation we have suggested a hypothesis that explains so-called children-parental programming, repeating life scenarios of parents by their children.
Further we have compared traits of personality (temper, direction, character, abilities) and types of subjective infatuation experience. A new hypothesis has been suggested in regard to reasons of character anomalies and a new classification of accentuation types according to mechanisms of their emergence has been developed. Thus, we received 4 types of psychic desadaptation (each type includes several types of accentuation).The received types of psychic desadaptation were compared to types of temper and other traits of personality. Then we outlined 4 types of personality according to subjective infatuation experience that were also compared to types of psychic desdaptation, temper, and other traits of personality, this data is presented in scheme 2.2.6/1.
Separately we have correlated temper, intellect, willpower, moral traits of character, its value settings, direction of personality, and abilities to experience infatuation. Also we have outlined correlation between social types and types of subjective infatuation experience, which is also presented in scheme 2.2.6/3.
As we know, such approach towards developing types of personality according to subjective infatuation experience (as the types themselves) was suggested for the first time.
Separately, at specific examples, taken from clinical experience, we have undertaken a comparison between type of character accentuation and types of personality according to their attitude towards infatuation, love, family, devotion, etc. We have presented a systematization of accentuation types in detail, provided characteristic of personality types according to subjective infatuation experience. The main factors of amorousness (being able or not able to fall in love) were outlined.
Thus, within the undertaken research we have discovered general biochemical and physiological foundation of different individual people that reflect at psychological level. These differences consist in certain “breakdowns” in work of neurochemical systems that define “organic” of an individual. They also have an impact upon formation of different types of people according to their subjective infatuation experience.
The statements, studied in the second part can be considered in developing physiological model of emotions and feelings (including infatuation). According to the studied concepts we can conclude that each emotion and thought is backed up with certain biochemical processes, related to molecular reformations and release of energy.
In a separate chapter (2.3) we studied hypothetical directions of developing science in the area of mastering new revolutionary technologies. A hypothesis of vitality has been suggested, and it brings new important additions to the theory of matter and mechanism of matter transition from one form to another. These mechanisms have not been specifically defined by science so far. At the foundation of the earlier suggested hypothesis of subphysical and postsocial forms of matter we have come to an idea on creating apparatus of diagnosing infatuation and love.
In the third part “THEORY OF INFATUATION” we have studied an author’s theory of infatuation that is the first (exclusive) fundamental scientific research of one among the most complicated psychic phenomenons. We have uncovered the essence of infatuation, formulated the idea of infatuation, defined its signs, types, stages, “life period”, suggested a hypothesis on infatuation emergence, revealed laws and mechanisms that lay in its fundament, and also gave some practical recommendations, based upon the results of our research.
In chapter 3.1, apart from defining the main concepts of our research (infatuation and love), we have also defined the main ideas of infatuation theory. To them we have referred: subject of appeal and attractor; erotic contour as the foundation of infatuation emergence; protoinfatuation, its difference from infatuation; the first (nuclear)infatuation; emotional center; gestalt; sexual gestalt; stimulation center; frustration factors. According to the mentioned formulated ideas a scientific solution to the following question was given: why do we like someone and dislike another person, what is the reason of forming aesthetic feelings (sympathy and antipathy).
Further we have constructed a General scheme of inflation forming that is the heart of our theory. In it we presented the hypothesis on infatuation emergence (or not emergence) mechanism. Realization of the described mechanisms allowed us to construct a complete theory of infatuation in its general form.
The general scheme of infatuation forming was construct in analogy with the General (biophysical) scheme of forming emotions and thoughts (1.2.3). In it we have outlined the following stages: formation of erotic contour (unconscious process); formation of sexual gestalt (subconscious process); formation of infatuation or emotional thoughts, related to infatuation object (consciously-subconscious process); dynamic of feelings or stages of infatuation (consciously-subconscious processes). While describing the stage “formation of erotic contour”, we have formulated states of aesthetic feelings’ development (sympathy and antipathy). While combining stages of aesthetic feelings’ development with stages of infatuation, we received a graph of infatuation, studied subjective evaluations of infatuation on a ten-mark grade.
Further we attempted to understand what love is as well as “energy of love”, and can it be related to infatuation graph. We have concluded that “energy of love” can be related to infatuation, but it cannot be produced from infatuation graph. In order to describe “energy of love”, we have to construct a new graph and tied to correlate it with graph of infatuation. Thus, we determined what is represented by the graph of love energy levels; problems of diagnosing this energy; compared graph of love energy levels and graph of infatuation. We have specially outlines aspects that touch upon human life crisis and compared them to oscillation of love energy levels. We have registered a close relation between love energy levels and crisis of human life, and this fact can confirm the single nature of these phenomenons. Thus we came close to scientific understanding of a new psychic phenomenon and came to conclude that it is necessary to introduce a new subject of research into science (theoretic psychology) – psychic energy of human and its levels.
After it we studied such phenomenons of infatuation as:
1) phenomenon of bad feeling;
2) feeling each other at a distance;
3) mutual relation and dependence of feelings between appeal subject and attractor.
We have suggested some rather interesting hypothesis that, in our opinion, can explain these phenomenons. Also we have constructed so called mathematic model of infatuation (“infatuation formula”), according to which infatuation of appeal subject (intensity of their feelings) equals product of their sexual desires and attractor’s reluctance of them.
I = DAS × RА. (3.1)
Then we defined conditions of infatuation – factors that influence formation of infatuation. Hypothesis on reasons of not emergence of infatuation and not formation of erotic contour were suggested. The mentioned hypothesis was suggested by us for the first time.
We also suggested and studied a number of laws that relate with infatuation. We have outlined 26 legislations of infatuation and phenomenons, related to it. The main legislation of infatuation was defined – it consists in its frustration nature, as well as legislation of feeling dynamic: impossibility of coexistence for the same feelings between partners at the same moment.
Then we see the following attributes of infatuation flow:
1) forming of infatuation;
2) passing or not passing of infatuation stages;
3) situations of infatuation;
4) dynamic of feelings;
5) end of infatuation.
In this characteristic we enriched argumentation of our hypothesis with the corresponding examples, related to mechanisms of infatuation.
A separate research should be devoted to aspects of diagnosing infatuation. As we know, this problem remains unsolved in modern science. At the foundation of the suggested hypothesis on mechanisms of infatuation we have developed new special methods of infatuation diagnostics. They include perspective methods that have not been developed or introduced into practice (for example, apparatus methods) as well as methods that are already created and tested in real practice.
After it we suggested hypothesis on infatuation emergence. We have outlined the following stages of infatuation flow:
1) origin of gender;
2) formation of inter-sexual difference and strategies of marriage;
3) emergence of sex;
4) emergence of human and infatuation.
We have come to a conclusion that within evolution process all these stages become closely related, and in it infatuation is becoming a certain stage in development of matter, but not its crown. Emerged in the dusk of human race and social relations, infatuation, in its turn, becomes a transition stage between spontaneous sexually-decorated emotional reaction and true human abilities to manage these reactions (that represent love).
Further on, according to the undertaken analysis and our hypothesis on foundation of psychic, we have introduced new ideas into the theory of sexuality, particularly in relation to mechanism of imprinting (essence of inborn stimulating mechanisms that imprint an image and then release it).We have discovered that in its fundament imprinting has a lot of similarities with mechanism of forming erotic contour and mechanics of forming initial sexual images. A theory on causal essence of sexual fetishism was expressed. We have studied special features of male and female sexuality, suggested a number of hypothesis regarding to reasons of sexual dysfunctions (erective disturbance among men and anargazmy among women).
Thus, in chapter 3.1 we have studied fundamental ideas of our infatuation theory. We have discovered that fundament of infatuation is formed of general mechanisms of emotion and feeling legislations. The latter, in their turn, have physiological, biochemical, physical, and subphysical foundation. At the physiological level a stimulation center is formed, motivational stimulus emerges, and the new formed emotional center begins to control mind and subordinates a person’s behavior. Thoughts that form in this moment are no other than a shell that can chance, but the essence of processes remains the same: ignition and attenuation of emotional centers happen. A special feature of infatuation in these processes (in comparison to other emotions and feelings) is its combined multi-level nature. Infatuation is a complex of emotions and feelings that subordinate to general legislations of frustration character. In it, from our point of view, consists the basic characteristic of infatuation – its frustration nature.
In chapter 3.2 we studied practical recommendations that result from the theory of infatuation. We have studied factors of relationship predictions and constructed a general methodic of predicting relationships. Constructing predictions of relationship flow is a critically important topic of practical family psychology. We have introduced new ideas into the theory of psychological compatibility of partners; modeled partner types according to subjective infatuation experience; outlined categories of men and women according to their predisposition to strategies of marriage; suggested types of men and women according to their attitude towards each other, sex, and loyalty; formulated factors of forming polygamy and monogamy strategies of marriage. In our predictions of premarital relationships we outlines the following elements that have become an integral part of model Russian society nowadays: premarital courting without sex; “sexual friendship”; civil marriage. Causes of family crisis that has become urgent throughout Russia have been uncovered. We have set a foundation for our further development in the area of improving moral-sexual education of teenagers and the youth (4.3). Problems that touch upon predictions of marriage, have been studied. At the basis of the presented material, for the first time, we have developed a general methodic of predicting relationships.
Then, for the first time, we formulated a scientific understanding of unfaithfulness psychology. Classification of cheating reasons was made, types of men and women were outlined according to their attitude towards each other, sex, and loyalty as well as factors that provide for being faithful or unfaithful for men and women. For the first time a clear correlation between types of nervous system (temper), types of personality according to subjective infatuation experience, and their inclination toward unfaithfulness. The mentioned correlation was reflected in the corresponding schemes: 3.2.2/12–13. In the same place (22.214.171.124) we presented a scientific foundation and correlation of such ideas as “war of genders” and “crisis of family institute”.
After it we presented an author’s model of psychocorrection work on problems, related to private life and infatuation. Considering the revealed foundations of psychic, we have outlined new principles of psychocorrection work. Author’s technique of psychocorrection work on problems, related to private life and infatuation has been suggested. We have developed classification of problems, related to private life and infatuation, presented a practically-approbated technique of “treating infatuation”.
Further on, according to the mentioned concepts of infatuation theory we made the first scientific insight on theoretic basis of seduction and temptation. For it we have introduced into scientific turnover and divided such ideas as seduction (mainly male mission, making a voluntary sexual act with attractor) and temptation (mainly female mission, directed towards registering relationship with attractor). Thus, for the first time, mechanism of seduction and principles of temptation were discussed in scientific literature. A so-called law of relation dynamics was formulated: in any relationship, if one of partners switches or “get stuck”, second partner can also switch their attention towards another attractor. “If you cheat, you can be cheated on as well”. Technique of seduction was presented. A special scientific value in this case belongs to aspects of predicting seduction. Here for the first time we have studied legislations of relationship development in dependence on initial feelings of partners; type of attractor; experience of seduction object; presence (lack) of immunity to infatuation on the side of attractor; age and interests of attractor. All the mentioned factors are presented with detailed characteristic and suggesting the attending hypothesis. We have also presented “two-step model of seduction” – an author’s construct that represents a scientifically-grounded conclusions and practical recommendations, founded upon concepts of infatuation theory. Within it we have also suggested a line of hypothesis that have a proven scientific-theoretic and practical value. Thus, two-step model of seduction gave us an even deeper insight into mechanism of seduction, give it the first scientific explanation.
Then we touched upon problems of temptation – realizing female mission, directed to register relationship. For the first time scientific explanation was given to priority of female model of temptation over female model of seduction. Considering the corner points of infatuation, we uncovered aspects of temptation mechanisms; principles of temptation; technique of temptation; predictions of temptation. A two-step model of temptation was developed (scientific recommendations on problem: how to marry man). We have also introduced a line of other suggestions that formed the foundation for scientific reforms in the area of moral-sexual education.
In the fourth part “THEORY OF LOVE”, for the first time, we uncovered the essence of love from the position of its fundament, suggested hypothesis on its origin, defined the idea of love, its types, stages, and also compared love to other conceptions. According to the theory of love we presented some practical recommendations in form of specific techniques of developing relationships in suggestions in the area of improving sexual enlightenment and education.
We have also presented a historic aspect of outlooks that touch upon love; characteristic of love, attributes of love, and definition of it. We touched upon problems of developing abilities to love and love diagnostics.
For the first time we provided definition of love that included characteristic of its foundaions. Be defining love as a level of human energy, we, first of all, introduced a new object of research into science (theoretic psychology) – psychic energy of a person, and, secondly, pointed out that psychic energy of a person can be reflected in the corresponding graph (126.96.36.199 °) and measured (c.4). Accordingly, we suggested mathematic model of love “formula of love”: as psychic energy love equals to product of sums of education abilities, written and oral speech, managing one’s own emotion conditions, and general satisfaction with life.
Eps = A(a1+a2+a3+an) × Econst. (4.1)
We also presented an author’s classification of love types. Two types of lobe have been outlined: sexual and non-sexual. To non-sexual love we have referred the following types of love: children-parents, sibling, introverted, religious, universal love, and love for Motherland. We provided characteristics for these types of love as well as other phenomenons that contain the word “love” in their name, but don not correspond to scientific definition of love.
After it we suggested a hypothesis on biochemical and physiological foundation of love that differ qualitatively from the fundament of infatuation. Whilst infatuation causes a dominant center of stimulation that involves new emotional centers, condition of love is defined by gradual ignitions, attenuations, and new ignitions of emotional centers with involvement of the corresponding systems of rewards. These processes, unlike mechanisms of infatuation, can be managed. In evolutionary plan love is a higher degree of matter development and such characteristic of it as reflection. Development of abilities by human also confirms a possibility of developing humanity itself and social matter on the whole.
Further on we touched upon philosophic aspects of existence or not existence of two halves and soul mates. In our understanding two halves of love are, first of all, a sign of certain integrity; a whole that is something bigger than simply a sum of its components. As the same time, a loving person must be integral, self-sufficient, confident, able to create and emanate good without requesting anything in return. A loving person is this integrity, these combined halves, separated parts of ambivalent feelings and moods, connected with great effort and willpower into the greatest ability – ability to love.
The topic of soul mates, as well as two halves of love, is also discussed rather frequently in the world culture. What are “soul mates”, and do they exist at all? How lone are we, people, in search for our soul mates? Answers to these questions are given by our theory of love that is a part of general theory of matter. In the world no souls or spirits, able to store memories of our social interactions, exist At the same time there are material foundations of any phenomenons, and, if we speak of information and its reproduction, a certain mechanic exists, and it allows us to reproduce any information. As we outlined in§ 188.8.131.52°, (while characterizing the General scheme of forming emotions and thoughts), any data can be reproduced, even forgotten… And, it can be done not with some abstract spirits and souls, but with specific sciences and techniques. From the point of our theory, a person is lone just as much as they possess a psychic energy, which level of hedonistic pattern they have. There is no second half, as there is no a soul mate. But, a high level of psychic energy (energy of love, as we name it in our work) can exist, and such person will not suffer from problems of loneliness; and “second half” with the “soul mate” will be found inevitably.
Then we outlined stages of relationship between a man and a woman starting with infatuation, and gave them our characteristic. The following stages of relationships were defined:
1) infatuation flow;
2) stage of “pseudolove;
3) formation and flow of love.
For infatuation flow we outlined the following steps:
a) period of courting;
b) step of satiety;
c) end of infatuation.
Stage of “pseudolove” includes: “necrophilia”; violence; prison; trade; divorce (breakup). 6 steps were defined for the stage of love formation:
1) patience and fitting in;
2) step of debt and respect;
3) continuous development of relationship;
4) death and rebirth of relationship;
6) real, genuine love or “eternal love”.
In our opinion, the outlines stages of relationship are not a conditional abstraction, but a real image that reflects possible life stages of developing in relationship between a man and a woman from infatuation to love. In it we see the scientific value of the classification, developed by us.
Further we presented author’s principles of psychotherapeutic work and author’s techniques, approbated in practice. Their main feature consists in the fact that all of them are based upon cognitive component of basic psychic knowledge. If a person knows what happens at the moment of thinking and their psychic conditions, and what must happen for their goals to realize, then the ideas they have will help them to make the corresponding physiological reformation.
Thus, in chapter 4.1 for the first time were presented foundations of such phenomenon as love, considering which enabled us to uncover essence of it, solve problems of its diagnostics. We came to conclusion that emergence of love is related to evolution of nervous system and social factors. Love is not a feeling, but a trait of character that can be obtained will effort of labour and willpower. By obtaining an ability to love a person becomes more successful, happier, and more inspired. In fundament of ability to love we revealed an objective, material, changing value that was called energy of a person (a new object of research in theoretic psychology).
In chapter 4.2, at the basis of different definitions of spirituality, as well as author’s theory of love we produced the following definition of spirituality: spirituality is a motivational condition of a person, directed to self-development and self-improvement. We studied factors that influence a person’s selection of a certain system of values and world outlook, suggested a hypothesis on mechanism of faith, its foundation. In process we revealed the following legislation: along with decrease in level of energy down to certain limits, people tend to refer to god, prayers, and other “psychological techniques” that operate upon mechanism of faith, more frequently. During an increase in level of energy a person remembers mechanism of faith in conditional-reflective way, and refers to these mechanisms again when their level of energy drops.
We have come to conclusion that level of energy impacts formation of spirituality within a person (both real and false) and serves as a foundation of personal development. However, regardless of energy level, without work and developing qualities of love within themselves people are unable to become really spiritual.
True spirituality and love represent such qualities of a person that make them more successful in life, capable, good, altruistic, psychologically-healthy. Compared to love, spirituality is not always related to presence of the highest level of energy within a person, at the same time, the person can aspire to achieve this level of energy. If a person lives to a certain moral law and sets high goals, related to self-development and self-improvement, we can state that this person possesses truly spiritual values. Such qualities as real spirituality and love restrain a person from committing crimes, evil, and violence. The necessity to develop spirituality and love energy is dictated by sustaining health, vital force, and happiness as a result of achieving the set goal. Spirituality and love are related to evolution of nervous system and a person’s involvement into social relations. It is possible that people who possess true spirituality and love, can represent the image of the future human.
In chapter 4.3 we touched upon aspects of moral-sexual education of teenagers and the youth. We have generalized the results of earlier studies and correlated the concepts of “infatuation” and “love”. We have also studied positive and negative sides of infatuation and love, touched upon the problem of destructive side of infatuation, and suggested what changes can happen in regard to infatuation and love phenomenons considering evolution of such characteristic of matter as reflection. While studying these aspects, we put a foundation for explaining moral position in regard to the researched aspects.
We have defined the necessity for developing a complex programme of moral-sexual education of the upcoming generation in Russia as well as necessity for reformations in the area of sexual enlightenment and education. We have given a scientific explanation of not approving of premarital sexual relationship and importance of the first sexual experience. Concept of moral-sexual education in Russia was formulated.
In the fifth part “LOVE AS IDEOLOGY AND CULTURE” we studied love as a certain sociocultural phenomenon that, in our opinion, is able to define the image of the future human.
In chapter 5.1 we formulated signs of ideology and gave it the following definition. Ideology is an idealized emotionally-infective model of constructing a human society that can be founded upon scientific knowledge or faith, at the same time this model tens to achieve an all-state or world acknowledgement.
We have expressed a hypothesis on what lays in the foundation of world outlook and ideology, answered the question: why do people a hold on to a certain world outlook or ideology? The answer to these questions was found in process of studying physiological and psychological foundation of these phenomenons.
According to the theory of infatuation and love we have come to conclude that ideology, as emotions and feelings, subordinates to certain legislations. In the fundament of ideology lay general principles of emotional centers’ operation. There is a dynamic of growth and fall for every ideology. In each case there is a possibility to predict development of ideology, uncover the reason of its emergence, growth, or fall. At the foundation of dichotomy criterion we have constructed a graph for the following types of ideology that were compared to each other: anarchism and absolutism (despotism); liberalism and conservatism; fight for independence and fight for unity; globalism and antiglobalism; sexual revolution and contrrevolution; capitalism and communism; democracy and totalitarianism; legal state and state of fist right; animal hedonism and love; imperialism and etatism.
Then we generalized statements of chapter 5.1 and deepened tour ideas on mechanism of ideology formation, stages of this process. Apart from state ideology we have also outlined such types of ideology as social and individual ideology, and also formulated types of ideology according to their usefulness, among which we outlined constructive and destructive ideologies.
While characterizing modern ideology of Russia, we have come to conclude that it has a destructive nature and leads the country to breakup. In process of uncovering the main ideologies that existed and still exist in the world, we have formulated a law of colonial empires, according to which political and economic stability of the developed countries is supported by political and economic instability of the developing countries. Mutual foundation of mechanisms, responsible for constructive ideology and infatuation, as well as of mechanisms of forming constructive ideologies and love have been discovered. The following legislation has been revealed for the ideology mechanism: fighting feeling of superiority on the side of certain people gives birth to compensatory feelings of superiority on the side of people who started this struggle. We have made a conclusion on inevitability and necessity of ideologies’ existence. It has been proved that an ideology is a powerful factor of prosperity and decline of a state. We made premises for developing a new approach towards classification of historical process in addition to formation and civilization approach.
While studying ideology of Ancient-Russian state, Moscow state, Russian Empire, and Soviet Russia we gave an answer to question: why did Empire fall? It did because there was no correspondence between ideologies of state, ruler, and people. We have explained what ideology Russia needs (state, ruling group, and people). We have also studied a question of national idea of Russia. It was concluded that Russia is truly a unique country and cannot be referred to either West or East. It has its special predestination, a special way and part in historical process. Russia is the messiah of universal (world) history.
In chapter 5.2 we studied the author’s model of “New ideology”, here we have also implemented the main method of our research – locating the foundation of a certain phenomenon. We have discovered specific physiological, biochemical, and other fundaments of morality, suggested a hypothesis of fundamental human interest. At the foundation of these hypothesis we formulated the concept of “love ideology”, uncovered its theoretic fundaments and characterized the main categories of morality from the position of their explanation. In the process we suggested several hypothesis, studied the following categories of ethics: good and evil, contrition and dishonesty, honor and dishonor, justice and injustice, norm and abnormality, mercy and cruelty, altruism and egoism, chastity and libertinism.
According to our theory, ideology of love represents a legislative process of development, generalization, and improvement of ideas and outlooks. To a certain degree it is required for the further progress and movement of human civilization.
Then we studied basic, from our point view, problems of Russian state in context of possibility to solve them with ideology of love. We have given a characteristic to such aspects as poverty, criminality, sickliness, bureaucracy, extensive labour. At the same time we specified and explained these problems, suggested our ways to solve them.
In chapter 5.3 we studied some culturological aspects of infatuation and love. Thus we touched upon problems of fundament of legal socialization, sense of justice, and legal culture. We have come to conclude that there is a principal possibility of “treating” criminals via improving education and criminal enforcement system as well as creating and developing new technologies. Rightful behavior can be cultivated through upbringing as well as apparatus methods, by “nurturing” healthy “organic material” and balanced neurochemical systems of psychic. We have also concluded that development of human, social form of matter with objective necessity leads to emergence of posthuman – a new, improved, legally-socialized human that will implement only rightful behavior.
In accordance with our theory, as a certain level of energy, love lays in foundation of ability to understand laws and obey them. One of the reasons of breaking laws is the fact that balance of neuro-chemical systems is disturbed, and love (as energy) levels this balance. Until apparatus methods of “treating” criminals are created, love (ideology of love, knowledge, and kindness) can help people defeat crime, within certain limits.
Then we answered the questions on possibility or impossibility of existence for postsocial (cybernetic) form of matter; composed its hypothetical image; suggested mechanism of transiting social form of matter into cybernetic; briefly characterized concepts of trans(post)humanism; shown what will happen to infatuation and love in case nature of human happens via methods of transhumanism.
Infatuation is the heart of social matter, and love is way to perfection for the humanity. Regardless of fact that infatuation and cybermatter can vanish while being the heart of social matter, it will beat just as long as long people will exist.
As we have already outlined, the main accent of this monograph is made on revealing foundations of the studied phenomenons. Regretfully, these problems do not interest most people nowadays: “who cares what reverberates where, why should we care?” However, people should really care, because it makes a huge difference. Depending on how information is processed and revertebrated in our brain, a person’s behavior will change, it defines their feelings, motivation, and practically all their life. And this is what should be studied nowadays, and tomorrow scientists should model and produce technical novelties that will make life easier for many people. In it we see the main scientific value of this monograph – for the first time present synthesis of such extensive theoretic knowledge of inter-disciplinary nature that touches upon revealing foundation of psychic phenomenons for the further implementation in constructing different models.
Thus, we have formulated and suggested to discuss the first scientific concept of infatuation and love, and then researched the consequence, uncovered by our hypothesis.
We have shown that all psychic phenomenons have their explanation at lower levels of matter, demonstrated fundamental possibility of the fact that “black box of psychic” can be opened and taken insight into, suggested scientific confirmation of the basic concepts, introduced in our research.
No doubt, many of the suggestions, stated in this monograph, await their confirmation in experimental science, demand inspection, development and improvement, but it is an objective of our future research. Here we outlined the new direction of development for science, technique, and civilization, related to studying psychic phenomenons, particularly infatuation and love.
We hope that in nearest future many works and practical inventions will emerge to confirm, specify, and develop different theoretical concepts of this book.
The main hypothesis of work and particular hypothesis have found their confirmation.
