The only reason people need love is because there is an emptiness in your brain that developed while you were an infant that is used to the over abundance of attention and love you received from your parents at that age, this part of your brain stayed in that mode so you forever will feel incomplete without the same amount of love and attention you received as an infant. This is the same reason why people feel complete through love. Love, when it is the same kind your parents gave to you (genuine & unconditional) is most beneficial to you, making your brain complete (other areas of the brain must not be lacking also) therefore, making you the strongest possible, mental strength wise. This is why love is a painkiller (proven by science). Love also has the same postive effects as cocaine (also proven by science) for those who were not aware that their life was lacking someone/thing then are hit with the sensation of your brain becoming that much stronger and happier. So, no true love is not magical. It is just finding someone who likes you enough to care for you as a mother would with a child.
