    Love is [the] electric current

    Do I need "the" in this sentence?

    Love is [the] electric current.

    Also, is the "one" okay in replying to the phrase above: Yes, only alternating one.

    Thanks.

    What is love?
    Nobody knows

    Love – it’s an electric current.
    Yes, only it’s an alternating one/Only it’s an alternating current. (Not very sure).

    Quite likely.
    It’s not likely. It is so.
