Philosophy is all around us

There’s a great line from the United States of Leland

“but, its not in your heart. loves on your tongue, its a word thats all”

It’s a great display of a question of identity – what is love? Is it even a cohesive whole – could we have parts of love, but not a whole love, and how might that work itself out socially? How would we even know? – Is it a word because it’s a whole? But the inherent question behind that is where is it? If it is on the tongue, surely we can do some experiments with that. But is there any way to experiment with location?
