Tau Asteria sent us this article from BBC.com regarding the practice of kissing as an expression of romantic emotion. It notes that romantic bussing is rare in the animal kingdom and even in human society outside of Western cultures.The article also states:
“Kissing as we do it today seems to be a fairly recent invention, says Rafael Wlodarski of the University of Oxford in the UK. He has trawled through records to find evidence of how kissing has changed.
“The oldest evidence of a kissing-type behaviour comes from Hindu Vedic Sanskrit texts from over 3,500 years ago. Kissing was described as inhaling each other’s soul.”
Food for thought for those contemplating the inmost secret of our Most Holy Order.
