Lukvance, read this Webster's Dictionary definition:
1. Love noun \?l?v\
: a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person
: attraction that includes sexual desire : the strong affection felt by people who have a romantic relationship
Simply put, "Love" is the English word used to describe certain feelings of affection experienced within the minds of human beings. It is an emotion, just as anger, fear, and hate are. It (and the others) cannot, by definition, exist absent the mind. If you are convinced that love exists independently of the mind, kindly explain in specific terms how that is possible.
If love exists independently, however, it follows that the other emotions do, too. You can't have it both ways.
