It cannot. I did not say that.

When did I tell that analysis will find your true love?

Okay, then what do you mean in post #47?

Suppose you fall in love with a person X, in an event unexplained by logic.

After you observe X for sometime, you'll make a profile in your brain telling you the pattern X walks in.

Now, suppose you look at a group of 1000 people passing through a street, and then you quickly have a look at them all, then you will be able to say that 'This person is X' as soon as you see X.

In other words, gait analysis will not help you to create a love, it'll only help you identify the beloved one. Like a normal person would look at someone's face to tell who he is, when in love, you're supposed to have multiple ways to reognise the beloved one's identity.

No doubt that is possible. But if you hang around someone for awhile and you care then much more subtle senses are activated. You might sense when they are ill or when they are close by. You might be able to sense when they have been in a room before you. To sense thoughts and emotions.

Unlike his quote, love need not last forever. It is possible to fall out of love. This can be done by the other party only.

Other party?

Love need not always happen from both sides.

Then it is not really love is it? It is adoration from afar. Most of the time the person never tells the other person. This is not healthy and only causes pain and suffering.

In such a case, that emotion was not love. What is the contradiction here?

I disagree, it was love. Nothing lasts forever in the world.

"Nothing lasts forever in the world."

Quote: Shakespeare

"""

Not marble nor the Guilded Monuments

Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;

But you shall shine more bright in these contents

Than unswept stone, besmear'd with sluttish time.

When wasteful war shall statues overturn,

And broils root out the work of masonry,

Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burn

The living record of your memory.

'Gainst death and all oblivious enmity

Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room,

Even in the eyes of all posterity

That wear this world out to the ending doom.

So, till judgement that yourself arise,

You live in this, and dwell in lover's eyes.

"""
