Fifty shades of something completely different

Provided it isn't conceived only as an exchange of mutual favors, or isn't calculated way in advance as a profitable investment, love really is a unique trust placed in chance. It takes us into key areas of the experience of what is difference and, essentially, leads to the idea that you can experience the world from the perspective of difference. In this respect it has universal implications: it is an individual experience of potencial universality, and is thus central to philosophy, as Plato was the first to intuit.
