Day 17 – prompt is “science”

Scientific Proof of Em

We were arguing about
whether or not Love could be
reduce to a scientific formula
to a set of chemical reactions
in the brain

her argument was that
we could induce those feelings
chemically, therefore
we proved a chemical base
for them

I didn’t make my usual
chicken-and-egg
argument. It hadn’t worked before
it probably wouldn’t work
this time.

Instead, I asked her if
e-minor chord existed?

She said “of course,
you just flat the 3rd.”
Then,
“Duh!”

I told her that the
e-minor chord did not exist
there was only a specific
set of frequencies
caused by hammers
and strings

She went home to think about that

Our next argument
is scheduled for Saturday around 2.
