The Foundation for Exploration

Post by philojoe » January 22nd, 2018, 11:54 am

The Foundation is the next big thing in philosophy. Something raw like this has been needed for years. Goonan holds no punches and is not afraid to explore uncomfortable and controversial subjects, that may seem removed from philosophy yet are incredibly important and connected. This is the future of philosophy.

This is from the website for it: www.thefoundationpress.com

"Groundbreaking new understanding of free will, power, the sexual nature of man and woman, and what it takes to bring true happiness to all.

Contents:
Preface- Understanding the necessity of working with subjectivity.

Introduction- The Question: Should I continue to exist? Basis of philosophical thought in creating an existence that allows humanity to thrive.

Section 1: Welcome to Not Nothing- The duality of human nature- rejection and destruction, or acceptance and building given the
inherent structure of existence which is- "We have free will, we are not all powerful, we are not all knowing, and we experience the
universe with a biological framework and consciousness."

Section 2: Destruction and Building- Cultivating power, facing powerlessness. Path of destruction involves a lack of self-control,
courage, wonder, and/or humor, with the person succumbing to powerlessness through either wrath, depression, madness, hedonism, or
ignorance due to the lack. Path of building involves self-control, courage, wonder, and a sense of humor.

Section 3: Power, Biology and Society- Maintaining a strong society (and individual) through a balancing of the pursuance of our
animalistic nature completely with a complete rejection, and a balancing of the desire to obtain all-power and the desire to relinquish
all power from oneself. A society comprised of men and women pursuing an animalistic/hedonistic sexual nature will crumble. The polar
nature of masculinity in men and femininity in women must be upheld.

Section 4: A World Completely Off the Mark- Application of the philosophy into the areas of Government, Politics, Economics,
Agriculture, Environment, Crime and Punishment, Mental Illness, The Media/Entertainment/TV/Internet/Porn/Advertising, Lack of
Freedom/Technology/Overpopulation/Overcomplication/Globalism, and The Exploration of Outer Space. Focus is in creating a society in
which people feel the most power, connection with one another, and connection with the universe."

You wouldn't happen to be Sean Goonan by any chance, would you? Just a hunch.

Explains clearly why people act destructively, how people act destructively, and offers an alternative constructive "path of building". Also extrapolates this personal philosophy into the construction of society, through exploring different areas like economics, the aesthetic of physical existence, the community (or lack of it), and explains the constructive and destructive path in each. Holistically it aims to create a total revolution of the modern consciousness and society.

No, I mean make a statement, present an idea. It creates total revolution? Put in words one of the insights you find so compelling and that you are willing to defend.

I mean, what if I said Marx is the greatest and has important ideas....just go read him? I put the onus on you.

Do tell!

Here's are parts of the framework of the core philosophy towards the beginning of the book. There is also other layers of framework in the middle of the book called the Biological-Aritificial Spectrum and the Power Spectrum which I'll post in another reply.

"Life is completely meaningless and free will allows for people to act on the meaninglessness in different ways, all funneling categorically into the duality: Destruction or Building. The path of building builds the collective conscious and everything necessary to support it to enjoy life and discover Truth, while the path of destruction tears everything down. It is not Wrong for people to decide consciously or unconsciously to ruin what others have built because at the core of why people build, there is no absolute Reason to build in the first place. An absence of absolute Reason does not make destruction automatically Right or building automatically futile.

In the duality something that is wrong is actually something that is destructive. Something that is right is something that builds on top of our meaningless existence for a life worth living and strengthens people against destructiveness.

Fundamental individual destructive tendencies given our free will in a meaningless existence are a lack of self-control, cowardice, a lack of wonder, and a lack of sense of humor. Without courage, self-control, wonder and/or humor the individual and society disintegrates. A lack of those four things leads people to wrath, depression, madness, hedonism, and ignorance. These five major ways that destructiveness occurs greatly diminish the quality of someone’s life and eventually lead to the cessation of life for the individual and humanity.

All of these reactions influence the collective conscious, which shapes the existence of the individual and humanity. The collective conscious is the always-changing conglomerate of the collective perceptions (feelings, actions, and understandings) of individuals in a group of people, or in the species as a whole. It cannot be specifically defined at any point in time, just as no individual’s being can be defined at any time, but can be felt, recognized, and altered (consciously or unconsciously depending on the person’s level of consciousness in any instance) by anything that any human manifests into existence internally within themself or externally through actions. We are all connected by the collective conscious.

Individuals create the collective conscious and are created by the collective conscious.
Individuals influence the collective conscious and are influenced by the collective conscious.

Society is an entity that binds and directs individuals according to the perceived collective conscious. It is intertwined with the individual and can create destructiveness in the individual. A collective effort is needed in order for humanity to self-actualize and be on the path of building. Society is the vehicle for building.

Individuals create society and are created by society.
Individuals influence society and are influenced by society.

A fundamental way society creates destructiveness in the individual is the creation of powerlessness along with, or due to encouraging the destructive behavior above. Society can destroy individuals by pushing wrath, depression, hedonism, madness, and ignorance onto them, and in turn the collective society is destroyed itself. Everything is connected. An individual may have been courageous and in control and possess humor and wonder if not for the outside force of society pushing the person to be destructive. But remember, an individual may and should always strive to be on the path of building despite all of the wrongness surrounding oneself if the individual chooses life."


"The Five Destructors

Wrath

Existing produces mental and physical suffering. Other people or society as a whole can exacerbate suffering produced by existing. The source of this mental and physical suffering is powerlessness. An individual that feels powerless may reject the conditions that produce the powerlessness and retaliate through wrath as an attempt to gain power. The attempt to gain power through wrath is either the attempt to supersede the powerlessness by trying to obtain all the power one can get (which indirectly creates destructiveness in the individual and society), or the direct destruction of anything that creates powerlessness.

Wrath is destruction and destruction is power.
Wrath is extreme power and extreme power is destruction."

Far too much in your thoughts to address. There are issues in all, though. "Life is meaningless" is a good start. why is life meaningless? Do you mean without meaning altogether? This can't be right right, for meaning is everywhere. Getting dressed in the morning and feeling fresh and ready, how is this not meaningful?; that is, how is it without meaning, when the meaning is so palpably and immediately present?

Free will? Now this is not defensible, unless, of course, you take freedom the way some existentialist does, free, for example, in our nothingness, or free since not determined by causality, not like a stone or a star that has a very different essence.

We are free to act on meaninglessness: I do admit, there is something to this, but you have to elaborate. Are you referring to the future, which is not yet upon one, is empty and unmade, yet impinges on the present by way of dictates of the past? Go into this.

Destruction or Building? Are you saying Buddhists, who construct nothing and indeed spend their time destroying the world, so to speak, miss the the point of life? And also, one person's destruction is another's building. Thus, building the collective conscious(ness): this is a fixed thing, what to build, that is? You know what it is? Of course, your further discussion may address this, but does it do this in a non question begging way?

Maybe the words before the ones I posted will help you understand.

"Preface

In order to understand what I call “the duality of human nature” you must understand the difference between the words Truth and truth, Wrong and wrong, and Right and right. Truth, Wrong, and Right are objective understandings of existence, an impossibility given our current reality. The words truth, wrong, and right are subjective understandings of existence, and they are what we must work off of. All words capitalized in this book when they should not be reflect their objectivity or more closeness to objectivity compared to their lowercase counterparts. Objectivity may be the goal, but it is not the key to achieving that goal; subjectivity is the key. A foundational philosophy based in subjectivity is the key to action. It is how you build and it is how you prevent things from decaying.


Introduction

In order for humanity to thrive with people living in true happiness, or for humanity to continue at all, a foundation, or mental and societal structure is necessary. The foundation I have discovered or created is a temporary structure based on the current path and understanding of humanity. It is based off of a single primary question in which everything else is derived off of:

Should I continue to exist?

In which there is no right or wrong answer.

I will argue in this book that if you want to obtain true happiness and have humanity continue to exist:

A. You must accept that your life is meaningless.
B. You must then create a subjective foundational mental structure to build an enjoyable life and to protect yourself from meaninglessness.
C. You must create a strong foundational societal structure to support individuals.
D. You must understand that some things destroy humanity and other things strengthen humanity.
E. What is “right” or “wrong” depends on the strengthening or destructive qualities of the action or thought.
F. You must accept and work with things that are not absolute truths in order to accomplish B, C, D, and E.
G. You must accept things that cannot be changed but not succumb to their negative consequences.
H. You must build upon things that can be changed in order to create a stronger mental and societal structure and create a better life.

This book will be focused on realizing the many ways people consciously and unconsciously destroy the quality of their life and the possibility for continuing their existence and how it is necessary to reduce destructive tendencies and encourage other behavior in order to keep existing and thrive.

In order to survive, function, enjoy and self-actualize you must understand your existence and you must create your existence. In order to understand and to build we must explore.

This is the foundation for exploration.


Section 1: Welcome to Not Nothing

Life is meaningless and absurd. We have free will, we are not all powerful, we are not all knowing, and we experience the universe with a biological framework and consciousness. I have discovered that due to this inherent structure of our perceived existence, we follow two distinct paths. The duality of human nature is this:

Every single human feeling, thought, or action at any level of experience or awareness can be categorized under two equally valid but opposite reactions to the absurdity of the universe. Rejection and destruction or acceptance and building.

Simplistic approximations of the duality are:
The path of destruction is hopelessness and the path of building is hope.
The path of destruction is unrestricted individual freedom and the path of building is discipline.
The path of destruction is ignorance and the path of building seeks to understand life.
The path of destruction leads to extinction and the path of building leads to survival.

Neither reaction to our perceived existence is “better” than the other. It is vital to understand that these reactions are philosophically equal and justified avenues of experience and that these reactions permeate through every moment of our existence. The reactions can have different magnitudes or effects on our lives and the lives of others, but at their core is the same duality, unchanging no matter how miniscule or consequential the instance.

These infinitesimal reactions can be viewed on a polar spectrum with complete destruction or building at either end and everything at a certain level of one or the other between, but they can also be viewed as two distinct paths when viewed over a longer period of time. Changing paths from building to destruction can be done in an instant with a powerful thought or action, but leaving the path of destruction for the path of building takes much longer, requires tremendous effort, and the path of building must always be upheld and maintained. The path of destruction can simply end in you killing yourself, while the path of building means living a deep life of creation, searching and experiencing what life has to offer. Remember that even if you are on the path of destruction, it is always possible to fight out of it and get on the path of building, although the deeper you are in destruction, the harder it is to get out of.

You can accept the meaninglessness of life and go down either path. You can be at the highest philosophical understanding of the universe and go down either path. It is impossible to articulate perfectly why someone should choose to accept life rather than reject it, but I will explain my personal decision. Always remember that the power of choice always rests on you. In order to determine if you want to go on the path of destruction or building, you have to first ask yourself if life is worth living. Destructive thinking, which is not the only option, may cloud one’s judgment on the worth of life. I will explain what going down each path entails, and if you choose life, I will explain how you can prosper."

And here is the continuation of the section on "Wrath".


"A loss of self-control is the primary reason for acting in wrath, but deficiencies in courage, wonder, and humor play major roles as well. People may consciously or unconsciously be wrathful.

Wrath is not anger. Anger is a powerful tool and emotion that should be used in the path of building. Anger becomes wrath and becomes destructive when one loses control, loses focus, and steps outside of what is productive and necessary for the preservation of society and life.

If wrath occurs naturally in someone when exploring the true nature of their existence, or if it occurs naturally in someone due to outside influences from society and other people, why not be wrathful? One must resist being wrathful because being wrathful is being destructive towards life. Wrath is destructive because it deteriorates the mind, destroys bonds between people, destroys the bond between the individual and the universe that makes life worth living, destroys ideas that preserve and provide a foundation for an enjoyable life, and it directly inflicts unnecessary damage on other people and society. There are consequences for all thoughts, all states of being, and all actions. These internalities and externalitites, or things that occur, influence the collective and subjective planes of existence, which are in constant change. Wrath produces negative consequences for the planes of existence.

When feeling powerless, the choice can be made to relinquish all self-control and act in wrath. This path is chosen to alleviate the suffering because the individual feels backed into a corner with no other options. Any attempt to bargain with others or oneself about the situation is seen as digging oneself further into weakness and despair. Wrath is seen as necessary, Right, effective, and a cathartic release of built up pressure and rage. The danger and destructiveness of wrath is its absoluteness, insatiability, and extremeness.

People are naturally averse to powerlessness. The form of this aversion determines if the individual is in a state of building or destruction. Building is remaining in control of the anger, determining its source, and taking controlled action in deconstructing the source of powerlessness if necessary. The wrathful person loses control over the anger and unleashes destruction. The wrathful individual begins to develop a sense of absoluteness and insatiability in eradicating the powerlessness. The individual may be completely justified in feeling angry and may be justified in venturing a little into a wrathful state, but if that person allows that wrath to take hold then they are down the path of destruction. A person must manage their anger in the initial short term and take short and long term steps in alleviating their suffering. There is no future in wrath.

An individual will naturally feel angry towards feelings of powerlessness, but it is how the individual then deals with the scenario after the feeling of anger that determines if they are destructive or building.

Some forms of powerlessness are natural and unchanging.
The individual must recognize and understand the nature of this powerlessness.
Attempts to eradicate this form of powerlessness are completely useless and instead it must be worked with.
Some forms of powerlessness are non-existent or blown out of proportion and therefore incorrectly perceived by a person that is hostile towards their feeling of powerlessness.
The individual must seek to understand the situation better.
Attempts to eradicate this powerlessness are completely or partially misguided and destructive and may upset power structures. The individual is excessively hostile towards the powerlessness and is automatically wrathful.
Some forms of powerlessness are unnatural and destructive and perceived correctly for what they are in form and magnitude.
Action must be taken against this powerlessness, but it must be done in a controlled manner or else the individual is wrathful.

The individual must have courage in facing adversity both natural and unnatural, and must have self-control when trying to perceive and eradicate powerlessness.

As opposed to anger, wrath is absolute. Absoluteness rejects the nuances of any situation and opens up the individual to deterioration if the individual cannot reason, control, or view things with a broad long-term perspective. Wrath is all or nothing in the attempt to eradicate powerlessness. With absoluteness the wrathful individual completely disregards the nuances of power and life, and completely disregards everything external to the self. Everything external to the self is seen as a threat to the individual’s power and therefore must be subjugated to the individual’s power in retaliation. When an individual is locked into wrathful thinking and acting, the desire to alleviate their suffering becomes insatiable. This leads to extreme behavior.

The insatiability of wrath deteriorates the mind and the individual clashes destructively with the external. The mind that is insatiable for power is a mind of constant suffering with the individual incapable of enjoying life. It is a one-track mind hell bent on destruction. There is no wonder or humor in this mind. The value of life, of both the self and others, plummets. With this plummeting of value with regard to life, the individual is ripe for acting destructively in extreme ways. The insatiability forces the individual to act extremely in the quest for eradicating powerlessness and obtaining power. There is seemingly no other way to handle the situation.

Extreme behavior is behavior that is outside of what is productive and necessary for the preservation of society and life. This extreme behavior comes in many forms, all destructive, which I will discuss later. The wrathful individual lashes out at everything- the external, or even the internal. This individual does not care about the consequences of their actions. Control is discarded, and more or all behaviors are acceptable, no matter how their consequences are played out into the planes of existence. Time ceases to exist. The past is forgotten, the future is irrelevant, the only time is now, the only thing that exists is the individual. Any attempt to regain control over a powerless situation that is not a forceful attempt to quickly remedy the situation is perceived by the individual as dragging themself deeper into weakness, fueling the wrathful individual to seek power faster and more forcibly. After a certain point if the individual perceives that all attempts to gain power are futile, the individual turns to destroying everything that has made them feel the way they do. In the final form of the pursuance of wrath, the destruction of things external to the self and the destruction of the self are intertwined in a complete loss of self-control and rejection of life. If not destruction through wrath, the individual gives up completely on life and destroys themself through depression.

Wrath is on a spectrum, with some level of control and lower magnitude on one end and a complete loss of control and extremeness on the other. Wrath fuels wrath, only control takes a person out of a wrathful state, so a person existing in a low state of wrath will naturally delve deeper and move to the other side of the spectrum. There is a spectrum of wrathfulness in the seeking of extreme power, in the seeking of direct destruction, and in a combination of both. A wrathful individual may easily overlap wrath through the attempt to gain excessive power with wrath by destroying. An individual tends to first seek all of the power they can get and then realize any futility and seek to destroy, but they are intertwined.


Wrath as Power-Seeking:

Wrath through power seeking is on a spectrum of destructiveness. Some inconsequential power seeking through wrath is not that destructive, while other extreme forms of wrathful power seeking are highly destructive. Inconsequential power seeking through wrath leads the individual more easily to highly consequential wrathful power seeking.

Wrath does not have to be a violent destructive physical act done in one instance. It can be a long drawn out affair in setting out to control and dominate others over a lifetime. Power and control come in many forms. Examples of the power an individual seeks excessively may be monetary power, political power, or the power to shape people’s thoughts and actions with or without them knowing it. The wrathful person seeks extreme monetary power, political power, or influential power because of the control over other people that becomes possible with it. The wrathful person uses these forms of power to obtain more power, and they use the more power to obtain more power. Wrathful people do not use the power they have in influencing people to help those people self-actualize, they only use their power to increase their power even further at the expense of others and to control others for the sake of their own power. The excessive power-seeking in one person is the suffering in another.

Greed is a form of power seeking and insulation from the world and others. Greed and power seeking both neglect anything external to the individual, whether it is other people or ideas that bring people together, in the attempt to gain power over the given situation. The wrathful greedy person disregards others, exploits others, and hoards their power. This person feels that if they hoard enough power they can gain control over their powerless state of being, yet no matter how much power an individual attains, it is never enough power to compensate for the objective meaninglessness of existence. Hoarding and excessive power-seeking are not the remedy to objective meaninglessness. Due to their ignorance, the wrathful individual still continues their pursuit of power to no end. Living a life of frugality and cooperation aligns a person with the path in attaining happiness in meaninglessness, as you will see later.

Attempting to gain all power leads the individual to power by direct destruction. Power hungry individuals are very likely to be externally and self-destructive individuals in the first place. This is because these two scenarios are of the same nature, wrath. Power-hungry individuals may destroy in order to further their power or they may discard seeking power in control by seeking power in the relinquishing of control and acting in pure destructive wrath. Excessive power-seekers lack a real sense of self, and lack the necessary type of power in order to be happy, so they delve in self-destruction. Wrath always leads to a lower value of life and a lower value of life leads to more wrath. This is where the individual relinquishes all self-control and seeks only to destroy.


Wrath as Destruction:

Wrath is practically synonymous with destruction. An individual may react to a feeling of powerlessness by wildly seeking to destroy. The source and facilitator of all feelings of powerlessness is the framework of existence; human beings are not all-powerful. Something that exacerbates and “creates” the individual’s feeling of powerlessness in any situation may not be known, which creates a scenario that is ripe for the individual to lash out in wrath. If an individual has no understanding in how to direct their anger in any concrete direction in order to alleviate the problem, they will devolve into wrath and destroy anything.

The most obvious form of wrath is acute rage involving physical or verbal aggression and destruction. Wrath is an all encompassing feeling and state of being. Violence, murder, outbursts of extreme physical and verbal rage- these things come when a person’s anger, which has turned into wrath, has reached a pitch. In extreme wrath a rising of tense energy that originates in the front center of the body flows up the spine to the base of the skull. The heart begins to beat at an extreme rate, the nerves of the body fire, and the person becomes extremely on edge. The eyes bulge and look crazed. A person does not have to experience this exact feeling in order to be physically wrathful, as wrathful destruction is wrathful for many reasons spoken about before. Though if an individual is in that state of feeling it is certain that they are in a wrathful state.

Physical violence in itself does not automatically mean an individual is wrathful. The reason for the violence, and state of being and feeling of the individual determine the nature of the violence.

If a person exists in a state of rage and does not act on it they are still on the path of destruction. By constantly being in a state of rage ready to boil over, eventually the person will act on it externally, and if not, it will eat away at the person inside. All internalities have consequences and play out into the mind of the individual and the external world.

Maliciously destroying ideas or societal structures that aim to lift humanity up out of absurdity to create and maintain an enjoyable life is a form of wrath, whether it is destroying those ideas within oneself or among others. When a person gives up and physically destroys, they are at the same time destroying the ideas of self-control and courage in the collective conscious. Ideas that build a society may be targeted in wrath because they represent all that the wrathful person consciously or subconsciously is against or does not care about. The wrathful person seeks disorder and chaos. With no regard for life, the wrathful person seeks to destroy themself, which is the true underlying nature of all wrath; a giving up on life. Wrath is always self-destructive and is the antithesis of building a meaningful and enjoyable existence out of nothingness.

Wrath leads to the cessation of life.


What if society or specific people are currently pushing destruction or pushing destructive tendencies and/or instilling helplessness in yourself or other individuals? Society or other people may act in a destructive manner that may not be directed at a specific person, but may directly or indirectly affect the person nonetheless. Wrath aimed to combat a perceived destructive society may achieve something, but it is always destructive and will be less effective than fighting for a belief with self-control. Wrathful actions always leave irreversible damage to the collective conscious and should be avoided at all costs even if the outcome is the elimination of the original destruction.

An individual that wants to change a destructive system that inflicts powerlessness and suffering must not destroy the system in uncontrollable wrath, the individual must use ANGER to DECONSTRUCT the system to get rid of it and pave the way for a better system.

The individual must have complete understanding of the destructive situation and then take the necessary steps in order to remedy it. This may involve organizing many individuals to combat society-wide problems. Notice the key word being “organizing” as collective organization is a key to building. A lone wolf individual will never be able to personally eradicate societal-wide destructiveness.

These individuals must not organize to act in violence if violence has not been taken against them. Violence, while much braver than doing nothing at all, is the courageous, but messy and destructive way out. The courage needed to take violent action is admirable and is the opposite of choosing to remain content with suffering and weakness, but it is misguided. Controlled and organized violence or physical usurpation of power may be made as a very very last resort if people are subjugated to acute non-physical destructiveness and there is absolutely no hope for any change to be made without violence being needed. If people are pushed too far then organized physical force in order to subdue the destructor may be considered. Organizing people right into physical revolution is not the answer. The true rule of building is to take aggressive non-violent controlled ACTION against destructiveness. Controlled action is the key to building and stopping destruction, doing little or nothing in these areas is the worst of all.

Oppressive societies and individuals that use physical force must be retaliated against with physical force in to order preserve the individual and fight against annihilation. Oppressive and destructive individuals who use physical force against a person must be met with physical force if words do not suffice. Pacifism is not the answer in these situations.

The individual or group must always be ready to defend themselves physically, especially if it is highly likely that they will be attacked against physically in the near future due to the defender’s actions taken in order to eliminate the powerlessness or not. A bold non-violent statement may entice the destructive entity to retaliate with physical violence. Making a statement and hoping that a destructive entity will simply comply is naïve. The defenders must be ready to push the limits and defend against annihilation.


After saying that individuals must not pursue extreme power, it is very important to say that an individual must seek and have power, not for the sake of gaining more and more power, but for many reasons. The individual must obtain power and knowledge in order to form a strong self. It is on the extreme end of the spectrum where power seeking leads to wrath and self-destruction. You will see why power is needed in the next section.

Building is all about obtaining power in non-destructive ways. A great way to obtain power is to build relationships with other people. With those relationships the individuals have the power to accomplish more, along with the power of enjoyment and solidarity. The ultimate and greatest form of obtaining power is to seek the power of understanding. The truth-seeker and truth-obtainer carries the most power in our meaningless existence.


In the next section I will talk about depression. Depression and wrath are of the same nature; a reaction to powerlessness. They are heavily intertwined in an individual and may be present at the same time if not oscillating."

This is the beginning of another section further on:


"Section 3: Power, Biology and Society

Maintaining a strong society is vital for the success of the human race.

Society is an application of the collective conscious for the organization of individuals.

Society has created beings that are different and more than just animals, but we still retain an underlying animalistic nature.

Society is full of individuals that interact with one another. Each of these individuals must have a degree of autonomy and individual power in order to be on the path of building, but as one individual gains more power, others may lose it, and can fall into destructiveness through wrath and especially despair. Society provides guidelines for social interactions and the allocation of power.

Considering these two important components of human nature (Underlying Animal/ Underlying Power) in relation to society:

1. A strong society is based in balancing the pursuance of our biological nature completely and the rejection of our biological nature.
2. A strong society is based in balancing the desire to obtain all power and the desire to relinquish all power from ourselves.

These are the Biological-Artificial Spectrum and the Power Spectrum."


and later on...

"Animalistic nature is not limited to violence- it applies to sexuality. A society comprised of people that follow a completely animalistic sexual nature is destructive. The consequences of following this nature are far-reaching. A hedonistic nature and an animalistic sexual nature are intertwined, although are not the same thing.

Complete animalistic sexual behavior in men is characterized by the pursuance of having sex with many women with disregard for choosing a single mate to create a family with.

Complete animalistic sexual behavior in women is characterized by the pursuance of a man or many men for only their high sexual prowess with disregard for the creation of a strong family due to:
A. The woman’s direct desire to put off raising a family in this pursuit, which also contributes to a long-term negative effect in the creation of a family in section C.
B. The unlikelihood that a man with high sexual prowess will settle down and raise a child with the particular woman given the fact that he has many other options and may be animalistic himself.
C. The elimination of the possibility of raising a strong family with a man who has less sexual prowess than any man the woman has had sex with before. The reason for this is that a woman will only remain submissive and desire to be with the man who is the top alpha male in her sexual past. The alpha male creates in the woman feelings and pleasure that is unmatched by others, and is the only man that can truly command respect from the woman in a relationship. A man who remains in a relationship with a woman in which he has no possibility for becoming the top alpha male in her sexual history is a beta and therefore weaker and inferior to the actual alpha male from the perspective of the woman and her feelings. If the woman disregards her sexual hierarchy and starts a family with a beta male, the partnership is doomed to be weak and they will fail in remaining together and fail to create strong offspring. The woman may have chosen the beta for his provider status because of her inability to hold down an alpha male. The beta is a provider of both monetary and emotional support for the woman. The woman is the dominant person in the relationship with the beta male because she holds the locus of power in the relationship- her sexual feelings and needs that are not being met."

Any thoughts?

No one wants to take a jab at this?
