Part of the "Trace of the Soul" series
So this is what Plato's Symposium tells us, "According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves...Love' is the name for our pursuit of wholeness, for our desire to be complete." And Plato, I have some questions:
Is there specificity in love?
Are we considered incomplete before we find "the Other Half"? In a world where togetherness is romanticised, is solitude a disease, or rather a decision?
Is it just wrong to be alone?
