英文の和訳です。

できるだけ、意訳を避けて訳していただけると助かります。 知らない化学物質の名前などが多く、難しく感じました。あと、人の名前もよく分かりません… スペルのチェックはしましたが、もしも間違っていましたらすみません。 お願いします。  Dr.Michael Liebowitz has found that love is not that spontaneous, mysterious feeling, but is the result of chemical reactions.  Scientists still do not know very much about the chemistry of human emotions; however, they have known for some time that specific chemicals are the cause of feelings and emotions.  Working at New York State Psychiatric Institute, Dr.Liebowitz has identified the chemical that transfers the feeling of love to the brain. This “love chemical” has the formal name phenylethylamine and is a member of the amphetamine family. Amphetamine are chemicals that cause adrenaline to be produced in the body. When your body produces adrenaline you will breathe faster and will feel your heart beat faster. Also, your face may get red and your hands may shake. In other words, you will be acting as if you are in the first stage of falling in love.  In addition, Dr. Liebowitz has found another connection between love and the “love chemical” phenylethylamine. This connection is chocolate, which contains large amounts of the chemical. When observing parents who tended to fall in and out of love rather more often than the average person, he noticed that when a romance ended, these people tended to eat chocolates. Dr. Liebowitz concluded that brokenhearted people, without actually realizing it, eat chocolates to get a similar feeling of being “in love”. So he or she eats chocolates to increase the body´s level of the love chemical. (Could it be that when we give our loved ones chocolates, we unconsciously expect to increase their levels of the “love chemical”, and consequently their feelings of love?)  It has also been found that love is based in the brain, not in the heart. Dr. J. Money, of John Hopkins University, has found that people who have had certain kinds of brain operations are incapable of experiencing romantic love, although they can experience other emotions. Dr. Money thinks that the day will come when we will be able to fully explain the chemistry of love. 以上です。

マイケル・リーボウィッツ博士は、愛がそれほど自然発生する不可解な感情ではなくて化学反応の結果であると言うことを発見しました。科学者は、人間の感情の化学作用について、まだあまり多くを知りません; しかし、彼らは、特定の化学物質が感情や情緒の原因であるということをしばらく前から知っていました。ニューヨーク州立精神医学研究所に勤めている時に、リーボウィッツ博士は、愛の感情を脳へ伝達する化学物質を特定しました。この「愛情化学物質」にはフェニルエチルアミンと言う正式名が付いていて、アンフェタミン族に属します。アンフェタミンは、アドレナリンが体内で造り出される原因となる化学物質です。身体がアドレナリンを造り出すと、あなたは呼吸が速くなり、鼓動もより速いと感じます。また、あなたの顔は赤くなり、あなたの手は震えるかもしれません。言い換えると、まるで恋に落ちる最初の段階にいるように、あなたは振舞っているでしょう。さらに、リーボウィッツ博士は、愛情と「愛情化学物質」フェニルエチルアミンの間のもう一つの結びつきを発見しました。この結びつきはチョコレートです。そして、チョコレートはその化学物質を大量に含んでいます。平均的な人よりむしろ頻繁に恋に落ち、恋から覚める傾向がある親を観察していたとき、これらの人々が、ロマンスが終わったとき、チョコレートを食べる傾向があることに彼は気がつきました。失恋した人々が、「恋をしている」のと類似した感情を得るために、知らず知らず、チョコレートを食べるのだと、リーボウィッツ博士は結論づけました。それで、彼/彼女は、愛情化学物質の体内濃度を上昇させるためにチョコレートを食べるのです。(これは、私たちが愛している人にチョコレートをあげるとき、私たちが彼らの「愛情化学物質」のレベルを増やし、ひいては、彼らの愛情を増やすと私たちが無意識に思っているということなのでしょうか?)愛情が、心臓ではなく、脳に宿ることも分かりました。ジョン・ホプキンズ大学のJ.マネー博士は、ある種の脳手術を受けた人々が、他の感情を経験することができるのに、ロマンチックな愛情を経験することができないことを発見しました。マネー博士は、私たちが完全に愛の化学作用を説明することができる日が来ると考えています。 ☆中ほどの文は、 When observing parents(→patients) who tended to fall in and out of love rather more often than the average person, he noticed that when a romance ended, these people tended to eat chocolates. ではないでしょうか?もしそうであれば、訳は、 「平均的な人よりむしろ頻繁に恋に落ち、恋から覚める傾向がある親(→患者)を観察していたとき、これらの人々が、ロマンスが終わったとき、チョコレートを食べる傾向があることに彼は気がつきました。」 になります。

回答、ありがとうございました。 やはり単語が間違っていました。patientsが正しいです。 ご指摘ありがとうございます。 なぜそこだけ間違えたのか自分でも不思議ですが… 今回の英文は、なかなか専門的なテーマで、このような知識がなかったので訳すのが難しかったです。 訳していても、突然チョコレートが出てきたので、イメージがつかみにくく苦労しました。 チョコレートにそんな力があったことに驚きです。

There are times when that path is dark lonely and silent and other times when it is suffused with love, well being. Compared to this love, all other love will seem humdrum and mundane. Soul Mate love is a seductive world of heightened emotions, and all consuming desire. It is the most intense relationship that you will ever experience on earth. An attraction that will seem to touch other levels. When you meet he will seem familiar to you even though you will never have met before, you’ll feel that you ought to know him. As if he is someone from the recesses of your subconscious memory, just out of reach. A memory that won't surface. Intense, as the attraction is. There are two sides to these feelings, there is the surging hopes that stir you, and make life wonderful, when you get some encouragement from him and there is also the dark side the days of uncertainty that all love brings but which are felt more intently too with a Soul Bond.

When there is a planet in the seventh house, it brings a definite kind of fate to bare, the choice of love is much more destined and less free. A planet also means that you yourself possess, a particular look or character that will deeply attract only a certain kind of man, and not others. It is as if the picture of love is cut out for you. If you had no planet in the seventh house, it would be more difficult to find love and yet more freedom to fall in love too, more opportunity but perhaps less depth. This planet placement gives you, endurance, practicality, a feeling of the predestined, so that once you are involved with someone, even if its not the soul mate, you are able to “make do” with relationship, or to put up with a lot that others wouldn’t for the sake of love.

He will make an impact on the depth of your being that barely registers, except that in the time that follows you will not be able to think of any man but him.. He will seem striking, alluring in some way that you cannot fathom, and which has nothing to do with his looks, as though a chord is struck in your deeper soul, or the innermost chambers of your being. You will recognize him, not only from the description, which is in a sense quite bland, but something inside of you will be mesmerized. All day and days afterwards he will have stamped his indelible impression on your mind and you’ll keep thinking back to him, to the meeting, to the man, to the warm kindling feeling inside of you. Like a curtain of a dream it will drop across you life. It will be that mystical, that beautiful, yet real and solid too.

You have much physical love to give and share and are not prudish. But the dictates of the heart are often suppressed by a fear of making demands or seeming too weak and needy for love. You area giver not a taker in love and you like your love affairs to be emotionally tidy. O have their own place in his life, you don’t let your emotions or dream spill over messily into his life. You keep things tidy you make no demands you are enchanted by the dream of love but are also, a realist in matters of love, The idealism and dream is just the coating you put on the reality. Inside yourself you are a hard task master and the soul mate has to meet to many special requirements, and has to be a unique man to win your heart. He needs to shine out or he is not good enough for you. Unless you can have your mate or ideal partner, you tend to sacrifice happiness, or prefer a life of freedom and inwardly reconcile yourself to spinsterhood. This is preferable to you, to being tied to someone in a marriage that is less than love; or who is not him.. Having tasted paradise, nothing else is good enough.

He is a strong man but not always a good or righteous man. There will be times when you feel the prevents you making a starting new things in your life, but also would feel lost without him.. The beginning of the relationship or the early years of the marriage will be the most difficult for this is a relationship that grows better with time. The karmic task of the relationship is to build a love that I respects your individuality and your rights to your own life, but doesn’t lead to living separate lives.

    Neurologists such as Dr. Agnes Floel investigate diseases that attack the nervous system. Research into protecting the brain, the spinal cord, and the network of nerves that communicate sensations throughout the body is especially important these days because people are living longer than ever before. Degeneration of nervous system functions greatly affects the quality of life of patients. Dr. Floel and her team thus decided to investigate claims that a limited-calorie diet might protect against the degeneration of nerves or the loss of memory. Animal studies showed promising results, so Dr. Floel’s team recruited volunteers to participate in a human study. One group kept eating as normal ; another group ate more foods that are supposed to be good at protecting the nervous system ; the final group followed a restricted diet. After 3 months, the individuals in each group were tested. Those in the restricted diet group scored best in the memory tests. Perhaps the most exciting part of the study is that the effect found in the animal studies translated to the human trial. To be sure, there is no guarantee that further studies will show the same results, and it is still not clear exactly how or why a restricted diet may be beneficial. What is clear is that further research is warranted. 長くてすみませんがよろしくお願いします^^;

This means the relationship will be more conventional than you think, or want it to be. It may also lack surprises, so that once it has begun there is nothing really unexpected or sudden in the love that develops or follows. This planet placement can also mean that there is less turbulence and no sudden interruptions or disruptions that spoil; or upset your romantic life, less inclination to break up. Your emotions may be strong but cautious at the same time. There will be consistency in the relationship and you will know how you stand as times goes on, a leveling out, rather than great mountains and swooping disappointments or valleys in the terrain of love. Your love life, or choice of soulmate will be temperate, and will not be, impulsive or dangerous or too unorthodox, however unique this love is, it will not be irregular.. or inconstant. This position of Uranus also means that you may meet the soulmate, the greatest of all your loves and will be happy with him, how he is, not wanting to change or reform him greatly.

Or in the main central city of the district. Your soul mate will be Handsome. Someone you can look up to and admire. This sign means in love you will set your sights high and will aim above your station. A stage of character change, a new beginning comes through this love is a fire that can also burn you. This sign can cause fervent romantic attachments, that are sudden, stormy obsessive. The kind of love and passion that provokes extremes of emotions, but doesn’t move fast enough for you. With Aries on this house cusp, jealousies and rivalry is always a danger. The tendency to feel lost and helpless in the absence of close attachments or when they go suddenly wrong. To grasp at straws of love, or sometimes sadly to think, any love is better than no love.
