Her programming suggested she ''could'' love, but she didn’t know how to recognize the feeling. Anything she read spoke of butterflies in one’s stomach, a rapid heartbeat, a feeling of electricity crackling on body contact. Biological things.

Of all things - love!! Love, the one emotion that defies all rational thought and explanation!! Am I to become a philosopher, then? Am I to unravel one of the greatest mysteries of the human condition?! For an artificial intelligence to even ''experience'' such a thing - to fall into the realm of the ''subjective'' rather than the ''objective'' - that can lead only to one, inevitable conclusion - that Chachamaru has become ''self-aware!'' When one can monitor one's internal thought patterns with an 'inner eye' - that is self-awareness! We're talking ''meta-consciousness'' here! There's no scientific rationale for ''that!!'' Chachamaru was never ''intended'' to develop such a thing... then again - then again - when it comes to ''emotions'', who can say what is or ''isn't'' rational?! To be ''human'' is to have ''emotions'', and to have emotions is to have ''love''. And, once there's ''love'', hey, why not throw ''reproductive endocrinology'' into the mix! I mean, why not, right?! And ''reproduction'' means ''death'' - which is all well and good if we're talking about ''replicants'', but we're not - we're talking about ''robots''! Robots don't have emotion - they just ''can't''. Or could it be that - maybe, just maybe! - it's only the ghost of an emotion, generated by her auto-learning program...? Still - even so - from a strictly ''methodological'' standpoint - it's all too bloody ''subjective'' for a scientist to wrap her mind around, don't you think? Science is absolute!! It's... ohmigawd, what am I ''saying'', it sounds like I've ''given up!'' This isn't good - it's ''not good'', I tell you! - Since ''when'' has the lack of an ''easy answer'' been an excuse to... For what did I sell ''my soul'' to science if not to ''answer'' those very same ''hard questions?!'' Was it the magic based power system that Eva-san gave me which caused an unforeseen side-effect on her systems?! No. ''No!'' I can't accept that. That's just another ''easy answer'' - that's what ''that'' is!! Then again, there is that brother-sister team at M.I.T. that supposedly engineered an artificial intelligence capable of independent emotion, so ''maybe''..."

->''Competing for her was out of the question. He wasn’t human. Their concept of “romantic love” was fundamentally about mating, wasn’t it? Something of which he was both incapable and completely undesirous. So why this burning jealousy? It was jealousy, not envy, for he felt he was losing something that had previously been his: the right to be foremost in her affections.''

->''Did he love her? he wondered. It wasn’t the first time he’d wondered this, but there was an urgency to it, now. He didn’t know what love was. How could he? He believed he knew what Christian love was. He cherished it. To love one another through the love of God. The communication of souls past the barriers of flesh and space. Removal of the masks placed on us by nature. Turning away from the shadows on Plato’s cave wall to actually face one another. That kind of love, Paul understood.''

->''But the love in the Song of Songs? He could know nothing of that. It was completely specific to the human experience, and the reading of that book only served to remind him how alien, how unknowable these beings were.''

->''He agonized over his passion for her. He agonized over the nature of his passion for her. Was it love? It seemed the most ill-defined word in English. More sensible Earth languages like Greek had different words for the different types of love. He loved everything about her. Even her appearance, now. He knew full well that a man seeing her would see a dimension to her beauty that he would never comprehend; but to him, her form was one of amazing, alien beauty. The roundness, the smallness, the quickness of her; the darkness of her hair, the brownness of her skin—where years ago he’d found the human form repellant, he now perceived beauty in hers because it was her form; she was herself, unique among all mankind, unique in all the cosmos.''

->''He wanted desperately to believe that even if sex were a useful aid toward spiritual union, that it was not an absolutely necessary one. After all, among promiscuous humans, it seemed to actually be a hindrance to that end; and for all their liaisons, such people seemed terribly lonely.'' Oh yes, Paul, and you speak from such experience, don’t you? ''he scolded himself.''
