What argument does Aphra Behn make about her two loves in the passage: "How strongly does my passion flow, Divided equally 'twixt two? Damon had ne'er subdued my heart, Had not Alexis took his part; Nor could Alexis powerful provce, Without my Damon's aid, to gain my love."

Is it that she doesn't really love either of them or that each lover enhances the qualities of the other?
