C: Georg, if you don’t mind me calling you that, I have a question to ask you before we get too far off topic. Do you care to answer it?
H: We will know by the end of it if you should have asked me or not, no?
C: Georg, G.W, you are so right. My question is, what is your definition of love?
C: Do you think when a person achieves a higher self-consciousness; do you think that person has achieved their moment in history? What if you love several times, all different people?
H: I believe everyone achieves their moment in history, but no one will know until after everything is said and done, until the event has passed will we truly know the intent and purpose for that occurrence. Why would people love more than once? My, how the times have changed.
C: Okay Georg, thank you for starting the discussion strong! I have a surprise for you actually! I’d like to welcome to the show Soren Kierkegaard!
K: Hello, this is my first time doing this so I’m sorry if I mess up, I don’t have many friends, just one or two.
C: Act natural, just answer a question for me. Georg, feel free to jump in if you’d like! Soren, what is love?
*camera zooms in to Kierkegaard’s face just in time to see a tear roll down his cheek*
K: Want to know what love is? Love is making a decision which is based entirely on the aesthetic or the ethical. You can EITHER choose to love with a sense of pleasure and searching for physical beauty OR you can choose to base your love off of conventional moral rules. You just have to be prepared to know that the decision you make might not be the right one. Love is giving someone up because you don’t want to live up to the family name that for example might mean ‘graveyard’.
H: Who is she? She did a number on you, mein freund.
K: REGINE OLSEN, IF YOU ARE LISTENING TO THIS, I LOVE YOU.
C: I’m curious to know, what is your definition of love?
H: He wouldn’t know what love was even if it hit him right in his big nose.
H: Excuse me, I can’t hear you over my packed lecture hall.
