The Concept of a Soul mate has always been hard to explain and even
harder to believe, but once you have love someone to the point where you
know such passion and connection will never happen again, than you realize
that the person that provoke this feelings was you Soul mate. But where
does the Soul mate myth come from?
We can start with the scientific part of love, and no one does it better
than Discovery Channel. This famous research network ran several tests to
prove if a Soul mate could exist and came up with some very interesting
results. A research professor planned a series of test with 7 of his
students; he asked 6 females to wear a shirt for 48 hours without removing
it at any time, they even instructed to sleep with the garment for two
complete nights. At the third day, the females were asked to place this
garments in different jars while a gene study was been taken. Once they
place the garments the also place a cover tag of the number of genes they
had in common with the 7th individual which was a male.
On that same day, the male was asked to sniff in the jars and to place the
one he like the most in the front of the row and place the other is that
same descending order of the most to the least liked. The results showed
some shocking results, since the scent he was most attracted to was the
scent of the female with the most non-matching genes and the one he dislike
the most was the one of the female with the most matching genes.
Another common thought or version of the soul mates is the theory of
“Opposites Attract”; this theory tries to explain how a person can fall in
love with an individual that is their anti-thesis, and about how well they
can complement each other. The feminine side of the male partner is the
perfect matching of the strong and toughness of the female partner. For
example: people wonder what did The Beauty saw in The Beast, well I must
say that what ever she saw she loved and obviously no one else had seen
before. With this I know that the person that lacks what you have can
complement you more than an individual that has more of your
characteristics and lacks the same thing in personality that you do.
The best version of the Soul mate Theory comes from the ancient Greeks
and it presents the existence of a bean so perfect that the Gods became
worried and jealous about their creation. This beautiful and arrogant
creature hade the knowledge of a goddess and the beauty of the male body
all in one, and it seem to understand all the power and secrets of the
Gods that created them and walked around the Olympus knowing its wisdom and
strength for being one single been and also a very divine creation; for
this, the Gods felt fear and decided to divide this perfect been in two,
and send them out of the Olympus separate with the purpose of finding its
other half and become one single loving and perfect been once again with
out representing danger for the Gods.
What ever version you prefer, I’m sure you will find any explanation good
and maybe even convincing as long as you are in love. But It is nice to
know that no matter who we are, there is some one for us out there in this
huge and sometimes lonely world.
