come to think of it, are you a person you typically doesn't take offence to things?
I in general do not take offense however I do feel slighted by individuals. Within the work place if someone is derogatory towards me I may not take offense but recognize it as a negative aspect toward me.
This often leads me to test their resolve. If i am in a position of authority I will more than likely seek to ruin them through a variety of ways, like to use them as some sort of prey or target. Many people do this type of thing on a daily basis but I feel no guilt or remorse or anything but quiet satisfaction and a job well done. I do not do it out of revenge, but more so out of "I can" and I often find solace in the plight of my competitor.
To which, I must stress I do not do out of pleasure but because I can not stop myself from getting to see the demise of another person.
It is really difficult to explain through writing. It is the first time I have really done this type of communication and putting actions into words with reasoning is far more challenging than I first thought.
In terms of love for my wife. I provide for her, I protect her from anyone who may cause her harm if need be. I do not beat her or put her down. To me that is love. to you that may just be what is expected from a human to another human. However, who is to say I do not love her more than you love your wife. You can not quantify love.
... That is what a husband does, so it shows I do love her. LOve to me does not have to be emotional.
If it is, I can say I love her because I do those things. You may do it because you feel like doing it. In the end we both achieve the same thing by doing the same things. Love is a feeling that you can neither prove nor disprove.

I think you are the next level of the human species.
Ill tell you a story that explains why. My Wife's sister was involved in a car crash. It left her brain dead and basically a vegetable. this tore my wife to bits for 3 months she stayed at the hospital and never came home. She did not speak to me. I tried to be there for her but she would not let me in.
This created distress in me as I was helpless to help the woman I loved. After a period of time the Doctors said that we should turn off the life support machine. this angered and upset my wife to the point that she quit her job, left her friends and did not speak to me for another 2 months. All this stress and problem eventually ended my marriage to her about a year later.
She now has no friends, no job and is destroyed by the death of her sister to whom she was very close to.
If she and I were like you we would not of let this thing ruin our lives. We were only married for 6 years but still. Emotion and feeling are good things to enjoy at times but more often than not they are damaging to one's self and other.
Anger has fuelled many wars and hatred has angered many people. If we lost all those feelings we could be better off. to advance in our species I think the loss of emotion would be beneficial. I know people will disagree but I do not care. Emotional ties is what keeps people from fighting back against tyranny, standing up for ones rights. the fear of something happening to your loved ones stops us being bold and making the right choices. Our choices these days are governed by emotion and feeling.
I for one am glad to of met you now and hope to enjoy some frank conversation with you sometime.
