Divorce Delusion, Marry Reality

Romance is a self-interested bio-urge that spreads diseases and strains our environment via human reproduction.

Love is material or spiritual generosity, philanthropy, volunteerism, educating and learning big ideas, environmentalism, human rights and responsibilities, and informed dissent from destructively delusional crowds.  These exhibit care about all, not just the one we want to use to satiate a biological urge.

And why would you get married to someone you are sexually attracted to?  When sexual attraction wears off, you are left to reconcile personality differences.  Romantic dissipation often results in resentment, fighting, and emotional or physical separation.

“Sexual attraction is an involuntary hormonal response involving an increase in neurotrophins and testosterone.”  – Bones, season 3

Celebrate onanism, not romance.  Romance is a folly of the mind to get what the body wants.  Romance reduces enormous aggregate human potential for environmentalism and grand humanitarianism to just two self-absorbed people.

Fall in love with big ideas instead.

    Of course what the writers of “Bones” are doing is juxtaposing Temperance’s cold sterile accuracy against a warmer more emotional viewpoint. It is a show I often watch.

    I think of the show as the tempering of Temperance.

    Most of the couples I know (of any sexual persuasion) have progressed beyond (only) sexual attraction and become friends and help mate units. I see nothing wrong with that and see benefit. I try to flip my mattress when I change the sheets. Given my body condition it is a daunting task alone.

    Love has different definitions and you make a valiant attempt to define it. I know I would have run in front of a semi to try to save my dog without hesitation.

    I am the poster boy for wanking. That doesn’t mean I reject “family”. And if a lovely sexual dance precedes the part where you help each other do laundry and cook… that’s fine with me.

    To love ideas is not to reject bonds with other people.

      Tried to include a photo of James Marsden from “Enchanted” done up as prince charming but the HTML didn’t take… Oh well.

      So how are your new digs?

    • An good critique and filling in of social and physiological flip sides of my post, Lynden.

      And your Termperance observation elicits a grin.

      My new abode so far seems at the high end of reasonable expectations.
