I have argued previously that there are different types of love. I have argued that Higher Love is different than base love. Here, I am using a phenomenological analysis of love and arguing that there are different levels of love corresponding to the different levels of consciousness discussed by Piaget, Kohlberg, Fowler, Choprah, Wilber, and myself. I argue that love at the base is based primarily upon selfishness and not upon giving, while Higher Love is based primarily upon giving, with little selfishness. My Chart illustrating the levels of love consciousness is as follows:

1

Level 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

Type of love Higher Universal Creative Objective Conventional/Male Motherly Child

selfishness % 1% 5% 10% 20% 49% 40% 60%

giving % 99% 95% 90% 80% 51% 60% 40%

This phenomenological analysis is based upon a Wisdom paradigm. I argue that all love contains some selfishness, however, small a percentage. I also argue that small children have giving as a fairly large percentage of their consciousness.
