I'd like to see time travel! Think about the one thing you regret the most in your life, now imagine you can change it, that'd be amazing. Of course that'll be impossible, just thinking about it gives me a big headache.

AC Dropout,

the problem for those engaged in perverted games (like computer/video simulations of sexual contacts or even self-abusers' games with vibrators) is that they become more and more dependant on that anti-natural technology.

Essentially, I'm not an eco-freak, nonetheless I believe that the importance of technology should not replace the importance of mental/emotional health in a human individual's life. That people like the rich princes of certain countries (Saudi Arabia etc) degenerate emotionally is a consequence of a life in technological comfort which does not allow the individual to develop mental/emotional strategies to be master of a emotionally critical situation.
Why should technology support sexual lusts if there are enough normal sexually potent men for reproduction of humankind in the 3rd world? Frequent sexual activities make the brain numb and the body exhausted. Old men get heartattacks during intercourse with the support of technology while they could have done a healthy activity.

rare stuff,

What are the consequence of games humans play?

AC Dropout,

be sure that the atmosphere should not be determined by the technology the freaks use. Dependance on technology in intimate actions is a sign of the decay not only of public morals, but also public health. It is very morbid when people glorify intimate dependance on technology.

The game of an ape has not that bad consequences like the game of a perverted human.

rare stuff,

Taoism is the hippies of asia. This guy promotes the use of mind alterning drug.

I'm not too sure about his sexual teaching though.

Now you're pimping your dogs. What kinda Madame are you? And please don't play with your food on my body. Cleanliness is next to godliness.

Nietzsche was a first rate women hater. Father left. Raised by Sister, Mother, and Aunt. Women he loved ran off with his best friend. Got Syphillis from a prostitute.

He just vented in his philosophy that's all.

Is the french from Nietzsche Good and Evil Book. I'm not familiar with quote. I keep getting a picture of a extremely large woman crushing her lover when I read that phrase.

Oh, almost forgot to address your 'entrapment' concern.

You were the one who had the hilarious holographic 3D vision of putting whip cream in your eyeballs and your ears. How the heck would I know where your erogenous zones are? I am merely following up on the suggested areas of sexual preference (wierd ones too!) and giving you possible scenarios. Of course, the other possible scenario would be a thorough licking from my two dogs, who do a wonderful job, by the way...two for the price of one, and at a cost that wouldn't be ruinous to your financial health. :)

No entrapment intended, none desired. Just teasing you a little. You can handle that, can't you?

Hey, he's pretty good! Once I got past the first half, which really was dry, it got much more interesting. I'm into the re-reading part now, which means I have to go back over some of the wackier parts, and read reeeeaaaaallllyyyy ssllooooowwwwllyyy to understand more clearly what he means. When I get stuck, I'll ask you...actually, I do have something for you.

"...Man wants woman to be peaceful--but woman is essentially unpeaceful like the cat, however well she may have trained herself to present an appearance of peace." & "...When a woman has scholarly inclinations there is usually something wrong with her sexuality."

What a bunch of hooey!!! I am a peaceful person, no? And there is absolutely nothing wrong with my sexuality even though I like to learn stuff! :)

Oh, and another one.

"Dans le veritable amour c'est l'ame, qui enveloppe le corps". Maybe I should share this quote with Rare Stuff, he would appreciate its meaning more than you would.

AC Dropout,

you have mentioned yin/yang theory of Taoism. As far as I know this has also to do with the thesis that the most simple way is the best. So according to Taoism "alternative" sex with technologies is already too complicated to have benefits.

Having no sex is just the most simple way to me. I don't to know how it would be like if I used to have regularly.
rare stuff    Thursday, July 18, 2002 at 16:18:55 (PDT)

I'm sure you would be pleasantly surprised by what I can and cannot afford. But my my that is quite an indecent proposal. I smell entrapment in the air.

You might need to drop some ice cubes down your skirt to cool yourself off. hehehe.

How's your reading of Nietzche coming along. Discover your will to power yet? Ready to discard Socratic thinking yet?
