Even scientists and doctors can not give a scientific explanation. Although, even if there was some kind of love formula, would this change anything? After all, joy, happiness or pain would still be the same.
From the most ancient years, people come up with a symbol of love.The heart as the personification of happiness and the most beautiful feeling on earth is customarily portrayed throughout the world. Even on the day of St. Valentine's entire room is decorated with hearts of various colors and shapes. Well, why this particular sign? According to legend, this symbol of love and happiness came from a pair of swans that romantically swayed against the sunset, combining their heads and breasts. In addition, everyone knows that these birds are true to their chosen one or chosen for life. Many people should take the example of swans, because without their second half the birds can not even live on, they die. Devotion worthy of attention. That is why the symbolism in the form of the heart is accepted all over the world.
There are other versions of where it came froma symbol of love. So, people believe that the heart goes back to duality, that is, to number two, because people are two halves of the whole, mirror reflections. And the heart is two deuces that reflect each other. Another hypothesis, the heart goes back to the female buttocks, because it was their Greeks who were revered earlier as a symbol of love and happiness. The ancient men of Greece believed that this is the most beautiful part of the female body. Quite prosaic, but very possible.

This is the Chinese symbol of love, because it is believed that its sour fruits awaken a passion in man, and mandarin juice can return love and the power of a sexual plan even to an old man. As far as this corresponds to reality, of course, it is unknown.
The Egyptian symbol of love is the queen of rose flowers.It represents paradise pleasure, virginity, happiness, beauty, bliss, memory, eternity, etc. Why in ancient Egypt was venerated a rose? Because these flowers were dedicated to the goddess of conjugal fidelity, motherhood and beauty of Isis, for she is "all that is and that will be," that is, love.
