Yeah, I think we all came to that conclusion... It looks like religious BS snuck in under the recycled rubric of " it saps your energy boy!"

LOL, this has been the battle of the ages and females are included... too much vibrator use makes it harder for a female to cum and with a guy no practice holding off making sure the female is taken care off no holding power... it is all in the practice <eg>

It's all too much work.   I prefer, at my age, that everyone just do their own.

-rubs hands together-

Additionally, keep in mind: when you know little about a subject someone knows a little bit more than you can sound like they know a lot about a subject. This is (so far as I can tell) how people like Jordan Peterson exerts their thrall over people. Literally everything that comes out of the man's mouth is nonsense (or has just a glimmer of truth) but its wrapped up in fancy words and a rhetorical labyrinth so it is hard for people to see through his bullshit.

The role model for being a man in the West is literally built on top of ignoring your problems, behaving/living your life in a very narrowly proscribed way, and gate keeping others from playing with your toys. Its garbage. It should be burnt to the ground. I think just about everyone knows the foundation is crumbling on some level but so many don't want to look it in the face or they go the complete opposite direction and throw their lot in with the fascist in order to protect the garbage.

I know you said you don't have the time or energy to fully go into this subject but I find Jordan Peterson's material fascinating and truly inspiring so I would be interested to read your critique of his work and the hugely positive impact he is having on young men (in particular) and women today.

 

Regarding the burning to the ground of western society as it stands, what happens in the interim with the masses who vehemently hold steadfast to the promises offered by our current way of life? Do they just wake up on Monday morning and happily step into the new paradigm?

 

Colour me curious as I have a hard time believing the 9-5 tow the line to climb the career ladder and bow to the authorities ethos which permeates the west but at the same time I appreciate I am firmly in the minority and would not want the immense angst I suffer to be thrust upon others who are quite happy to play the normie game of life and reap its rewards.

From what I have heard from Jordan Peterson's videos and debates (with people like Sam Harris) he does have some interesting ideas, and, unfortunately, a lot of conjecture and outright crap (ex: ancient drawings of snakes intertwined show that our distant ancestors knew about DNA.... Uh, yeah right.).

One minute Google on "how snakes mate" would have dispelled that conjecture. Or perhaps an investigation on "ancient electron microscopes used in molecular analysis...."

Anyway, I digress, my point is, ask the questions: "Does this person have a book to sell?" That in itself doesn't make something false, but it does indicate possible motivation. "Is this person pursuing popularity?" Again, not an inditement, but a possible motivation.

Every action we take is motivated by something - getting at the Truth is hopefully the main motivation.

When I mentioned Rachel Maddow's ten million dollars a year to my neighbor the other day, she called me cynical.

Rachel, or the neighbor? Ha!

I suppose ten million dollars is what Rachel will sell her "soul" for. Most settle for much less.

Since it's 10 mil a year, instead of a one time fixed amount, does that mean that she is only renting her soul....?

I don't know how many of you have heard of the new movement called "NoFap" - you, it's exactly what you think it is (well, for males anyway - not sure if there is an equivalent for Females).

The idea is that "fapping" and porn addiction, which is considered to affect as many as 87% (or more) of men due to the availability of high speed internet (Not you Alder  :tongue:  ) are addicted to porn and masturbation.

This causes lowering of dopamine over the long term, and changes to the brain that make it more difficult to...ah... "keep the tree stable" if you get my meaning... during sex, and has led to the widespread condition of Erectile Disfunction in younger and younger men.

It also causes many social interaction disfunctions, depression, and a host of other mental and physical maladies.

So... now there is a movement called "NoFap" that is trying to "Reboot" the brain. That is it in a nutshell, google for more information.

But we here at Mycotopia know all about rebooting the brain! So I thought I would throw out this somewhat sensitive topic and ask what everyone thinks of incorporating our sacraments as yet another means of dealing with issues such as this.

I wont be surprised however, if this post gets read a lot, but not replied to.  I get it, it is a sensitive and perhaps even embarrassing topic, but one I think merits some serious thought.

 

It's not the fappin', it's the porn.

 

And it's not even the porn; it's the reckless and undisciplined consumption of it that can cause such problems, just like with any mind-altering substance (or content, as it were).

I don't have such a critique of his work, but I found this one rather interesting and entertaining (and eloquent):

Masturbation → bloodstream endorphins → less depression.

The philosopher Diogenes, on being upbraided for jerking off in the middle of the town square, responded by saying "if only I could satisfy my hunger as easily by rubbing my tummy".
I think we always have to make deals between our animal selves and our social/cultural selves, not that it is always clear which is which. I think fighting any one corner in favour of the other results in neurosis.
Allow the filth. Allow the purity.
