I wouldn't expect a scientist to understand.
I once told a guy that every emotion was meaningless. Anything I could ever feel or ever make him feel would be nothing but an electrical current passed through neurones and synapses, shocking a muscle into releasing various ions and chemicals.
I slept through my Chemistry GCSE.
I got a B.
I never understood chemistry.
I never understood electricity or synapses either.
I don't think that guy ever knew what I meant. I don't think a scientist would either.
Either way, you deserve everything I ever wrote for you, and if they belong in the trash folder, then that's fine too. They're no good to me if they only serve to remind me of you.
