Aliens Visiting Earth? Yeah Right!

We were talking about the search for intelligent life in the Universe which got us at Harlam to thinking, (Again). There is a huge amount of real estate surrounding us on on planet Earth in to which many neighbours danger_humans_ftr-300x160 must well have moved. At the current count it is estimated that there are something like 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets out there somewhere. (That’s an awful lot of zeros!). If only a tiny fraction have spawned life then that is a lot of species out there somewhere.

Even taking in to account the scientific thought in regard to all the time that has past since the Universe’s supposed noisy start, (Mind you is it like the tree, if no one was there to here this Big Bang did it actually make a noise?), fourteen or so billion years, where they say it is possible that other civilisations could have come and gone already. Lets face it the odds are that there is more than likely a lot of other life out there at this very moment.

With this knowledge we have we spend all this time sending out these invitations to them hoping, expecting, for some kind of reply. Pointing our radio transmitters along with receiving dishes in all directions of that oh so vast sky getting despondent as we have had no reply.

Here is the thought we had though.

Knowing humanity as it is right now, (It’s not in what could be classed an A state, more like a Z at best.), what we have done to this planet, our violent history; if you were intelligent life out there would you want to respond to us? We doubt it very much. Think about who we act when we are confronted with someone with those horrible traits. We ourselves do the very same thing when we see someone we don’t like; we simply choose to ignore them, hoping they’ll disappear never to be seen again. (Whilst we breathe a great sigh of relief.)

Why should we expect any less of ‘intelligent’ life toward us? (After all it is not called intelligent for no reason!) Let’s face it we are truly the rowdy neighbour of the housing estate known as the Universe. Trashing the nice house we have, shouting, screaming at each other, polluting the once nice clean place they once enjoyed. Who in the Universe, (And their right mind!), would want contemplate welcoming us to the neighbourhood? Yet alone want to borrow a cup of sugar or invite us round for dinner, perhaps a warm get to know you BBQ?

We seriously believe there may well be sign posts up around our solar system that we can’t see with BewareHumans messages to interstellar travelers, “Do not Enter – Contaminated Zone” Put up by those ‘Anceint Aliens‘ we believe visited us in our human adolescence. (Took one look at us and said, “NO we’re leaving, Good Bye. Putting the warning signs up as they left!) Which is why we have never been visited by extra-terrestrial life since, likely never will either.

Any kind of life that is intelligent will see us as a petulant child more interested in destruction than learning. Let’s face it despite everything in our past that should act as a warning, (The red flag could not be much bigger!), to our own forthcoming potential demise, we still carry on the same.  Who in their right mind wants to get to know someone like that? That’s an easy answer, absolutely no one.

They would be as likely to visit us as we would want a package holiday in a War torn country on our own planet right now. No, they are more likely to be simply watching us through their remote viewing technologies, much like we watch a comedy show on our TV’s here. Tuning in to our on going human calamity comedic actions, not believing a species could be so dumb, laughing at us as we head towards the inevitable series ending. (There will be no second series of the the humanity show either.)

Maybe humans were actually seeded by alien intelligence all those millennia ago as some theorists now believe. If so then they probably look at as now as we would an ant farm that has become a colossal failure. (If Ants acted like we do, we’d think the same don’t kid yourself.) Leaving us forgotten in a dark corner to simply whimper out of existence as we are simply not worth their time now.

Here is our concluding thought on this.

We need to address ourselves to becoming a more civilised, compassionate, caring human civilisation who respect our own planet along with the true balance of nature plus the infinite harmonious beauty of the Universe.

For until then we two think this is why we will not get responses to our human communications sent out to those intelligent beings that do live in harmony with the Universe and their own selves. They will simply ignore us and we will remain alone in the Universe as they watch us destroy ourselves. In the end simply raise a toast and say, “Good Riddance”.

Compliments Are Now Harassment?

We write here tonight with our hearts heavy, full of sadness not because there has been a tragedy to either of us or someone we know but that we see around us that we have reached such a sad point in modern society.

It was a comment that Harlin made in a conversation that started Lamo to respond with the following long thought, (To be fair our thoughts always are!).

I was raised to be polite, compliment people, listen, be tolerant thanks to my amazing parents. Growing up in a very rural part of the English countryside where there are few people for miles around, you make the most of any social moment. Becoming a very naturally forward person but with good intent in your heart.

HowDareYou
Modern Reaction?

But it gets me that we live in a generation now were if I were to compliment a young lady I passed on the street, or in a public place somewhere, she would more likely slap me or claim sexual harassment or even abuse?

Yet now even I so often find I have to hold my tongue more especially in public because I can no longer assume that talking to a stranger will be taken with the good intent it would be given, especially with young ladies. I am from a generation where beauty is appreciated and acknowledged in whatever form it exists. How do such phrases as, “Just wanted to say your very beautiful“, or perhaps, “What a lovely smile” become so seemingly sinister now? When they are given with absolutely no intent behind them other than to make that person feel more appreciated.

Harlin raised the point that when interactions happen there is a wealth of communication made subconsciously through body language which should convey the actual intent of the meaning behind this act of random kindness?

Lamo then postulated that perhaps then it is more localized societies such as London, (Where Lamo has his pride.), has forgotten how to understand body language in that random brief moment. Further the pressure of that modern rat race society has created an invisible protection barrier around them that is now not let down for anything. Even a random act of kindness in a simple compliment is now a crime as it to is considered as breaking that invisible barrier?

A generation or so ago it would be taken as what it was meant, generally a man to woman, a compliment, a raise of the hat with a, “Good Morning ladiessmiling young woman cute as they passed in the street, sure perhaps the lady might blush a little. But now too much is read into it for some reason regardless of body language especially in places like London. Maybe with women receiving it, there is a subconscious alarm going off within them because of the more violent nature of such societies, “Is he going to attack me, or worse” Thus they now don’t blush because they don’t want to become a victim, so they attack back whether intentional or reflex action. Even to a good intention kind word or two with passive body language.

Maybe, Lamo added, that it’s also that it’s such a sexual society now, it’s about sex in this day and age, thus any compliment no matter how it’s delivered, especially from man to woman, is seen automatically as a chat up line, a lead with strings attached, which is taken by them as, “I want to fuck you” Not just a passing remark to make someone smile.

There is a slight difference in these acts as between woman it is a more relaxed attitude for they can say such things as, “That’s a lovely dress“, or perhaps, “I love your hair“. Then a, “Thank you” is returned with a smile, no aggression.

Harlin, (Being a woman.), said that from her point, I have complimented so many ladies . Some took it as a prank, a joke, a lie and few seriously. The problem was not in my approach. It was their, “mind set“.

So we reach the crux of the problem here, that somehow society has over a generation changed how this, “mind set”, of people  has been so radically changed by modern day society. Here we have seen a change in the way that human interaction has been changed for the worse with the simple act of paying a random stranger a simple compliment. There are many other things it affects to but for this post it was how this response has become so volatile almost that people are drawn away from such human interaction, men will now not be chivalrous to a lady because of this?

This is what makes our hearts so sad that Chivalry is now likely to take you to court. How has the world reached such a point?

Lamo’s mind wonders if this is what drives us in this modern age to become more anonymous as well as isolated

zombie
No Future Human Interaction?

from others through the veil of social media as well? We feel this gives as some layer of protection against this political correctness gone mad?

For us we feel it makes us so much less human.

Our heart sinks with heaviness for the future for it means more people like Lamo that are simply friendly, want to interact with people around us, stop doing so. The world is becoming a London Tube ride, where it is now an unwritten rule in a place were there are so many other humans around you, that you don’t talk to anyone in the carriage.

This is a journey humanity should not be making.

Bubble Wrap, the Story Of Life!

We all love this stuff that keeps the contents of our parcels safe from harm. There is a therapeutic sense of relief that is bigger than the excitement of what ever it was that it once wrapped. We almost discard that just so we can get that unrivaled stress relief  of slowly, methodically popping each of those little bubbles, pop, pop, ooh pop until we reach that sad point where there are only a couple left, then two then there is just the last one.

What amazing stuff this is, Bubble wrap hand_holding_a_bubble_wrap_roll was invented in 1957 by engineers Alfred Fielding and Marc Chavannes in Hawthorne, New Jersey. Believe it or not it started life as two shower curtains, (No we kid you not!), creating a smattering of air bubbles, which they originally tried to sell as wallpaper. (No seriously we are not making this up!). When the product turned out to be unsuccessful as wallpaper, the team marketed it as greenhouse insulation, (Well you would wouldn’t you?). It was not until 1960 that it was first used as protective wrapping by none other than IBM to wrap is then 1401 computer. All this is covered in greater depth on Wikipedia, on this link, The Bubble Wrap Story.

However Harlin, was explaining that she had been having one of her regular subconscious conversations, (Yes with herself!), about a thought around this plastic wonder of air bubbles. She came up with this beautifully profound yet simple thought in this real conversation we were having;

Each and every moment is like “Air trapped in a bubble of a giant bubble wrap. Once you pop it (as in live in the moment) life is never the same.

When thinking about this it was a great metaphor about life, which drove us to pen this little piece for our Blog site and share with you.

Life is often, rightly to, looked as a long series of individual single moments, that once they have passed, we cannot get back. Also we think of the Universe as this huge curved sheet full of space and time, so why can we not apply this same principal to life? Now we have a comparison of all our individual moments in life as these little, fragile air bubbles on this huge but not infinite sheet of life. As we travel through our lives we are slowly bursting each of these precious moments, releasing the precious air it contains that then disappear for ever more.

But much more than this we have altered the state of that whole sheet, life into a new shape that will never ever be the same again, as Harlin so eloquently describes in such a beautifully simple thought. Every time a single little moment of our life is burst, that underlying layer has been fundamentally changed by the tiniest of actions on our part, changing the whole shape of our life.

The second thought on this is when we have a big roll of Bubble Wrap we have no idea how many of those little individual moments it may contain for us to have the satisfaction of popping throughout life. It must be remembered that it is not an unlimited sheet that rolls on forever with an infinite set of them, so it is important that as we slowly burst these moments.

We must take time to appreciate how precious each and every one is before  they fade out of existence, to savour the subtle difference there is in every pop of that air being released because if we truly listen each of those moments has its own truly individual sound.

The Journey of a Smile.

Whilst having one of our odd conversations, Harlin posed the thought about what she called, “The Journey of a Smile”. She expressed the beautiful thought about how it seems to travel from one face to another, from our eyes to our lips, ears to lips or even from the softest of human touch to lips.

Smile
The Smile is an Amazing Thing

Describing the loving interaction of how does the touch when a mother tickles her baby make him or her smile or laugh? From our ears to curl our lips into that smile when a voice, song or an orchestra plays a sweet symphony?

Further her thoughts turned to the fact the the beginning of a smile could be from a dead entity too, a heart shaped rock, a Beautiful sky, the rising or setting sun.

The following was the resultant piece that we went on to write as an expansion of this thought together, we have posted it here to share with you in the hope this to will see the journey of a smile from our simple words in thought to travel across the world of the Internet to arrive upon your own face as you read this.

The Journey Of A Smile

It starts hidden within the depths of the mind as neurons start to fire with a shape that is yet formless. Slowly they start to form patterns of millions of such tiny insignificant little things yet the effect they will have is profound upon us. An image form creating a memory with emotion that releases all sorts of weird unpronounceable chemicals but these names are completely unimportant for in that moment the right muscles move involuntarily hidden within our faces that curl our soft lips into a smile that beams as war as any sunrise seeps across the land.

Does that image start simply from a thought within our mind we interpret as such a happy time since gone that now repeats it emotion upon us? No, perhaps the journey starts with something as simple as a heart shaped rock that emotes somehow happy feeling that travels in an instant from such inanimate objects at the speed of feeling that fires the minds passion to explode as a supernova smile.

It can travel from the physical touch of another soul’s skin as the nerves carry the message of happiness across the body through miles of nerves as roads on a map to reach that final destination where the arch of the smile is always so welcoming. Not just to our own selves but like a bus full of unseen emotions that simply are it travels the road to another soul creating there that same arch so full of the joy of reaching its destination.

As music resounds in harmony through the air that lands upon hammer and anvil of the ear it beats a rhythm that carries further than the loudest echo that shapes a symphony of orchestrated muscles into the crescendo of our smile.

Like that sunshine that rolls across the landscape so too does our smile to those around us for they are now affected. So like light that smile crosses the infinite boundary of human emotion as it travels its journey from person to person. None really knowing why they have been stricken yet rather than question it allows it to grow in so doing they to have now have become a new lighthouse that shines the smile onto even more human ships that pass by on the sea of life.

The journey of a smile is truly unbounded by distance, it needs no medium to carry it, a timeless traveler full of such emotional fuel to journey us to feelings beyond the measure of stars.

Harlin’s final thought was put into this beautiful quote;

I guess smile is an expression of our satisfied or pleasured senses.

Do Angel’s Play Dice?

For as long as Lamo can remember he has often played life by rolling the dice in order to decide what to get up to. (Yes sometimes it is mischief but of a fun nature). Usually though he used it is to find new places, new experiences that his normal rational mind would not choose.

It is a sad fact that so many spend life not doing things because they think they cannot do them for some reason, yet in reality there is absolutely nothing that truly stops them.

DiceLiving
Dice Living

This is where the whole concept of “dice living” comes in, whether in small ways, or full life changing decisions. It is the dice’s random chance that removes the blinkered choices most will not make in life as they fear walking away from the line of what society and others expect. The Dice removes this limitation.

Now we come to the thought behind this Harlam post. Lamo always thought rolling the dice was a random choice that is until very recently.

All his life he had been one of those who has been very scientific in about how things work. Always looking for that rational scientific explanation to why things happen. Very much like the great Einstein as he was quoted;

God does not play dice with the universe”.

If this great mind believes that all things can be explained with mathematics and scientific theories then who is Lamo, a lowly mind compared to his, to disagree with an all-time great?

Yet he did! (What Lamo disagreed with Einstein?). When he started using the dice as a young cub, he was always of the opinion that God would not sit there and individually guide rolls of the dice for everyone. Why would he as he gave us ‘free will’ to make our own choices in life. This by definition means that he would not then create fate by then  guiding the dice as it would contradict that gift of free will.

Do not get Lamo wrong here; he does think that God can see all and every path from every single choice that is made at all times. For him that means he does, “let the dice fall where they may” yet the key thing is that he will know in that moment where that random roll of a two or of a five will then branch our lives to. He knows the current path our life is on at any given moment.

Which is why he can answer our prayers when we ask for guidance yet he does not force us down any given path, he allows us to make that choice of ‘free will‘.

Therefore going back to our dice, when letting them dice release from the hand, whatever the result, it was going to be truly random.

For Lamo this meant that there was no fate involved thus removing the blame of a choice from absolutely everything, including God. Which is, most times, what stops people from making those choices to new experiences as you end up doing after the dice had made the decision. Hence the phrase ‘Dice Living

Lamo had spent all these years dice living believing without question that the dice were a truly random decision.

Now though, Lamo having met Harlin, who is far more in tune with the spiritual side of life then explained about Angel numbers. This is the belief that Angels can give us messages of guidance through the use of numbers in our lives.

AngelNumbers
Messages From the Angels

I will not explain the whole concept here as this you can Google yourself, such as the following Angel Numbers

The other spiritual idea that is important here, that many may disagree with, is that every living human soul has a, “Guardian Angel“, sometimes more but for this Harlam post, lets work on the principal each person having just the one for now.

We have just put forward the idea that Angels can give us messages using numbers. By this we mean those that are a little different, duplicate numbers, 11, 22 etc. triples 333 or maybe 1234 but in very random places. This could be clocks, car number plates, prices on food, all sorts of places. (Please read our post on what are real angel numbers here).

The reason for this method of Angel communication is based on the fact that we would not be able to understand the normal communication that Angels use, it would make no sense to us, thus they send those that are willing to listen, these number messages.

Yes we know this post so far seems a bit random, (Pardon the dice pun here.). As we have talked about Dice, God, (Who doesn’t play dice) and now Angels, so lets now put these together with the thought of this post.

Lamo now postulates, (Great word that one!), if Angels give us messages through the use of these numbers, is it also possible that they do this by showing a particular number of the dice we have just rolled as well? Could this be classed as an Angel number?

We have already said that he believes God does not get involved in these supposed random dice rolls yet he gave us each a ‘Guardian Angel’ to watch over us, to help us, guide us. Does this Angel then have God’s permission to nudge that supposed random dice to a particular number as a message?

As a thought to explain this thought, if you have ever used Angel Oracle cards, the whole point is that you allow your personal Angel to select through you the card that delivers the message they want to give you at this point in your life. The card is not a random choice but that of your Angel. Although this is viewed only as guidance, is it not also moving you toward a particular path to follow in life?

GuardianAngel
Guardian Angel Guiding Us

Would your Guardian Angel, selecting the number that dice lands on, be another way to give you a message about your path in life? Or would this actually contradict free will being considered a form of fate because the choice was not actually random nor made by us?

Thus is it possible that Angels may actually remove the random nature from dice rolling in these situations as they are trying to give you a message of guidance?

Obviously we don’t mean every single roll of the dice, we mean, why would they influence it when you are playing a game of Monopoly for example as where is the life guidance in these sorts of rolls?

But the thought here is when we use dice for ‘Dice Living’ are these rolls always truly random or is our Guardian Angel giving us a little help?

Angel Numbers, Which are ‘Real’?

Here at Harlam the conversation is very often inclusive of this phenomenon, Angel Numbers, as they are a big part of life for both of us now. Many people are not even aware of this spiritual guidance that is there for all of us as are they are simply unaware of it.

We thought we would share this post so that others may also come to understand them, for they may already be getting the messages but when you don’t talk the language then it is very easy to misunderstand. (Like being in a Foreign country and not speaking the language.) You can see them but have no idea is they are being nice or nasty with their words.

Harlin has always been more in tune with the spiritual side of life, whereas Lamo was aware of it but was not aware of things such as Angels sending us messages through the language of numbers.

AngelNumbers
Messages From the Angels

The reason for this is that we as humans simply would not understand the Angel’s native communication. It is for this reason they use numbers around us to send us messages when they need to.

Over the last few months through our conversations, Harlin has talked about and explained them to Lamo for she has been seeing them for a while. She has greatly helped to expand Lamo’s understanding to see the meaning that exists behind Angels sending us these numerical messages.

You too may well be seeing them but just thinking of them as odd coincidences, do you see number plates with repeating numbers, “ABC 123” or perhaps wake and reach for your phone, unaware of the time, to find it is “2:22“, these could well be Angel numbers.

As it happens this was rather fortuitous as poor Lamo had started to worry about seeing a particular repeating number all the time, “333“.

Before learning from Harlin, Lamo had a worry that there was something wrong for he would, for an unknown reason, often wake to find that is was on or very near to, (never more than a couple of minutes thus actually showing 33 regardless), but more often than not, dead on “3:33am”.

For a long time he believed this was a bad omen, as it is known as the “witching hour” to some, a bad thing in general.

AngelNumber333
Good Message NOT a Bad Omen!

After talking with Harlin he came to understand that this is actually a very positive Angel Number with a very meaningful message behind it. He could see the relevance of what the Angels were telling him as it related very strongly to what was going on in his life.

We are not going to try and explain all the numbers that you might see, if you do see them then simply search on the Internet, “Angel Numbers” and the number you are seeing.

However there is a ‘Gotcha’ here that needs to be considered to. That is not that the messages might be bad or have negative meanings, no, that once we become aware of them we start to manufacture them.

If we stop to think about it we live in a world that is literally full of numbers but in everyday life we filter 99% of these out for they have no relevance to us. House numbers, car number plates, clocks, prices and so many more.

Now here is the question. When we become aware of what Angel Numbers are, the messages of positivity in them then do our minds now start to look for them rather than let them just happen to us. Which actually is not a bad thing of course as it strengthens our positive thoughts even if we are creating potentially false messages.

For example we all know reasonable well what time of the day it is, by the light, time we start work, people having lunch, the news on the TV and the relentless amount of clocks that are quite literally everywhere.

Our minds may therefore start looking at clocks at particular times that we will see these numbers, (Just after 11 for the 11:11 as an example), we might well start scanning car number plates, (Many are going to have repeated numbers on them.), or perhaps looking up when we are walking down a street as we know we are near a particular numbered house. We are now forcing ourselves to see the numbers we want rather than see the ones that are truly sent to us by our Angels.

In reality we are now just picking out the numbers we want to see rather than them being genuine. In this way we can start to think we are seeing many more messages when actually because our minds are aware of them, whether consciously or sub-consciously, many are surely now simply what we could term ‘false positives’.

As they have such a huge meaning, (The real ones), if we create our own then we may well be giving ourselves a very wrong message.  But here in lies the problem how do we know which are real and those that we may have created in our own minds?

The following is an example of what we think can be taken as a ‘real’ Angel Number message that was not manufactured by the mind wanting to see it.

(In a Galaxy far far away, no not really, let’s be serious here). Lamo had worked a long day, upon arriving home was really tired. He thought he would lie down, maybe nap for an hour just to refresh his body and mind for the evening to come.

It was probably around half five of the evening, (On this day he had started very early in the morning), however he couldn’t quite get off as urban noise was playing on his ears. Although he cannot remember the exact time he did finally fall into a peaceful sleep. Sounds like a great line from the end of a film. (Fade to credits with soft music playing!)

NO for this is not the end of this particular film more the beginning in fact. Like everyone he eventually woke again. Now at this point he had no idea at all what the time was and reached for his phone, literally seconds after waking. And there is was, shining as bright as the sun in the sky, “21:21“.

AngelNumber2121
Lamo’s Questions Answered

When Lamo then researched what this message was, he was astounded to find that it answered not one but two questions that had been troubling his mind.

He strongly believes that this was Angel’s answering those questions and he found peace in the message.

It could not be self-scripted as this was not the same as going to bed at the normal time, waking at the same time most mornings, these are pre-determined by our own doing. Let’s face it if we wake in the morning, whether 5, 6, 7 or 8am, we will likely see the same minutes as hours on the clocks, or phones 05:05 or 08:08. A ‘false positive’, it is what we class as a natural everyday number NOT a message from the Angels.

Lamo had gone to sleep at an unconventional time, with no alarm to wake him, instead the Angel’s nudged him awake at this odd time to pass their message on.

Harlin sees them were she works in the Hospital, now you can’t script the numbers she saw in this instance, (See picture below), to be there at the exact time the three repeated numbers were there on the monitor for that patient is just something that you could not plan.

AngelNumbersHArlinWork
Impossible To Plan

Here the one question we could ask though in this situation, is who was the message actually for? Was it for Harlin, or was the Angel asking her to pass the message on to the patient that this monitor was connected to?

Another example of what would be ‘real’, perhaps when walking down a street there is a car doing something very odd, or maybe it is parked in a really strange way, something that draws your eye to it over hundreds of others? On the number plate you see your number message, it can be taken that the angels have manufactured the cars situation in order to draw your attention to it and their message.

Something that would be especially powerful to this being genuine is after you have received that number message, the car drives off. Then this definitely was for you, as now it is gone it is no longer there for anyone else, the Angels had put it there to draw your attention and yours alone to it.

Lastly we would say that the messages they send a very interpretive, you need to understand how it relates to you and what is happening in your life at the time you receive it.

We strongly suggest that rather than go to one site on the big wide Internet, read a few about what your number means, Then string these together so they form a better picture of what the Angels are trying to tell you and how it relates to what is going on in your life at the moment. Remember that each guru that explains these numbers on the web, only interprets how they understand them, thus each will be slightly different. Although the message should be similar.

Think of it like chocolate, there are many available to us each with a slightly different taste. We know each is chocolate yet each with have a subtle difference in flavour so we need to find the one that suits our uniqueness the best.

In conclusion we strongly believe that Angel numbers are real, that they are messages from them but you need to make sure that you do not start to manufacture them. Think very hard about how it was you came to see the number, only you can then be honest with yourself as to if it was truly genuine or not.

Does Love Trump The Age Gap?

People often judge strongly a relationship with a chasm of ages of those in it. They cite the inevitable fact that at some point the older will no longer be there leaving the other alone. This may be true but think on this, how many people do you see who of the same generation go through a number of relationships never seemingly finding that one that is full of love. How can it be to see so many people, marry, divorce, marry and cycle through this like day does to night over the course of a month.

I would rather a relationship full of love that lasts as long as there is breath in the both sharing it, that gives meaning to a couples life together. AgeGap

Generations may have experienced different things, to which people may say there is too much of different thoughts between two separated by this measure of age. How many people who should be acting their age, choose to hold on to their youthful behavior. balance this against what is described as a person with an old head on young shoulders. Why is it that these should not meet somewhere in the middle of the generational gap and come together as one?

Yes perhaps there are gaps that just shouldn’t be bridged, when a twenty year old would partake with an eighty year old, well regardless of love the ending is not fully written to be a short story, for eighty, may make ninety or beyond, that could be but would be exceptional.

Even here though, if the younger one accepts that the loss of the other will be naturally inevitable, yet loves them regardless, then should not this love be cherished? Allowed to be in this World to show that there is such wonder to be shared between two people.

One other argument that might be present in the minds of those outside the two in love would be when the older of them has lived more life than the younger’s parents. Here though does not that mean the parents should almost rejoice in the knowledge that the elder understands unconditional love, along with that parental love for their child. Quite literally that the older of the two will love his younger partner till death they do part.

If two people can have true love together then it bridges the physical gap that may exist between them, for happiness in any relationship, is absolutely priceless.
