The Origin of Love
Aristophanes in Plato’s Symposium suggests that human form was not always as it is today. There was a time where humans were born with their partners as a whole. Spherical in shape, with four arms, four legs and two faces on either side of a single head.
There were three sexes back then; the male-male, female-female, and male-female. Referred to as the children of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. Such was their arrogance, they dared to challenge the Gods. So Zeus, in his anger, hailed up a storm and with his lighting, ripped through the flesh of the children of the Sun, Moon and Earth; splitting them into two, each becoming a distinct entity. Since then, human beings have been running around in panic, trying to shove themselves back together, searching for their lost counterparts in a desire to be whole again.
