My Chemical Kitty

If you are reading this site then it is assumed you know we are basically all just vibrations and chemical reactions. Really fascinating stuff here: not only are we identifying the chemical reactions that govern human/human relationships, we’re also learning that these same chemicals are related to the bonds between humans and animals. So when I pet the Dude, it isn’t just my imagination/psyche/placebo-zone/whatever that dictatesI feel calm and happy — there’s real science behind it.
