    I never have had a desire to kiss anyone. The thought of putting your mouth so near to another person's mouth just seems revolting. I just don't like physical contact in general.

    I think kissing in humans is actually an evolutionary throw back from mouth breeding in fish eg guppies

    What if the monkey is like"now this mother is for feeding and this mother is for comfort"

  • Shawn Bay
    Shawn Bay

    Conclusion: Kissing is derived off a psychological behaviour based off our need of warmth and comfort. It is an animalistic way of both nurture and mating. Our physiology pushes us to find comfort in our touch (like a shelter) to indicate safety. But the desperate need of attachment to another person does not show love, it shows our desire to feed off the anticipation of being treated nicely - this gamble for luxury is capitalistic. A kiss is an action that replicates affection, but affection is seen to us as an award.

      I’d love this idea to be explored in MindField more in depth! Wow! This is an insane theory I’d love Michael to unravel further than just an introduction.

    I swear Vsauce is the research paper that forgets what it was researching and concludes with a slightly irrelevant abstraction from the initial question, then forces us to make the conclusion ourselves.
