"The One?" a short film by J.D. Beltran and Po Bronson

From Po:

Just posted on YouTube is the short documentary film on the science of love, "The One?" which was written, directed, and filmed by J.D. Beltran and Po Bronson, narrated by J.D., and produced and edited by J.D.

The film explores where humans get this longing for, or this notion of, a "One" - a special romantic partner. It's both a film about love and a film about science and a film about parenting. The film also explores how our early imprint of love from parents creates a natural bias that affects our perception of all those we fall in love with later in life.

If you're looking for the details on the ideas in this film, be it in English or in another language, I recommend Thomas Lewis' et. al. book, "A General Theory of Love." It's available on Amazon and in many languages in different countries.

As a psychotherapist and business consultant, I found your film really thought provoking. In my work with individuals, I've seen the effects of early parental imprints when it comes to pursuing and recognizing love.
I also think, however, that there is more than one One. In my experience, there is "The One" at work, and that is usually the boss. This is tough because, unlike love partners, we don't select the boss. Still, most people go to the boss looking for attention, approval, understanding and acceptance. If that relationship isn't good, it colors the romantic relationship at home significantly.

Thank you for this thought provoking film!

The great limbic lobe – limbic resonance - Precious! So that is the view point of Science, but do you really think that the entire range of human experience can be mapped out? Even the hypothesis is at best just that until proved. However, I believe that there are such experiences in life which are beyond the realm of rational explanation or human cause-effect understanding.

What would the next step be? See how accurate my Sensory Attractors are? Limbic revision! Interesting! But coming back to our question – The One? I think the act of “living” as in the business of living your life; will help you meet the “One” that fits well with you. And yes, that one person then becomes the “One”. If regrettably your relationship fails, you lose a part of you and that person which itself will cause a change in the way you view life and relationships. So you mend and begin again…

I liked your post a lot...interesting insights!!! and it appears to me that there is a such a generational gap in the idea of "The One"
