Sex, Biology Account Unless The Culture FláVio Gikovate
Sex, biology account unless the culture :: Flávio Gikovate:: I write with caution, trying to communicate exactly what I have been able to think about the weight of biology in our way of being. I know the genetic relationship we have with the higher mammals. I also know that our brain was capable of producing a sophisticated language and, thanks to her, started in the magic of thinking. We become aware of our mortal condition, we make judgments, we construct rules for living together. We plan the future and imagine nonexistent situations. We come to have a soul (mind, reason): the result of brain activity is so distanced from their chemical reactions that we feel that we think independently. It does not matter here discuss whether the soul survive the body, it is not our theme. However, while living, we feel that we have this immaterial entity responsible for our thoughts and also the communication we have established with each other. No animal has nothing that resembles our soul. The brain, to be able to generate thoughts and radical departure from our biological ancestors. I think that we are more "
sons of God"
cousins of monkeys"
(I think that even if God does not exist!). So do not consider the zoologists as nominees to talk to us. There is a gap in quality that distinguishes the most sophisticated monkeys. Of course we are influenced by our biological properties, as they interfere with the process of thinking that happens in the brain (which is under the influence of hormones and all that goes in the body). However, I do not think we are slaves of such properties. They set trends and should not be construed as orders: I have a sexual desire triggered by the sight of a beautiful female body, but I have to go after him and attractions it at any cost. I want to beat someone weaker, and that offended me, but I am not obliged to do so. Am I right and discretion to decide whether I - or not - follow my natural impulses. Treating our biological drives as orders in the service of the worst causes. Supports the argument that the male sexual infidelity is at the service of the perpetuation of the genes of the strongest, that in society the most gifted - intellectually or physically - have a right to massacre and oppress the weak and everything else you want to validate. Prioritize biology implies disregard for our reason and strength. This supports the idea that immature people - and have no control over their emotions and feelings - are they right and is the capstone of our species. Deny the power and force of reason is to deny our capacity for self-management, we can be masters of ourselves. Fortunately, the truth is not that. Even the secular cultural standards are periodically reviewed with our reason always active. The planet we inhabit is not the same as monkeys and we who build it (for better or for worse). We changed the planet and we have taken the news that we invent. In the 40 years I have been working, I saw several unexpected changes in the sexual history of our species. I mention two: the abrupt and unexpected end of what was called the taboo of virginity and the emergence of "
. The financial emancipation of women (initially derived from the fact that men are the military front during the Second World War) and more the invention of birth control pills caused in a few years a dramatic change in the centuries-old cultural standard that required women to maintain virgins until marriage. The "
, invented by teenagers, has made boys and girls the same age and same social-cultural finding themselves sexually without any future commitment, because unexpected even by those who, like me, were aware of the possibilities change. Thus, it is not responsible or biology and even the traditional cultural patterns for our inaction. We can not change the world, but we are free to change our lives. I suggest to begin with two changes: 1. That boys are more emotionally well-trained and morally can stop envying flirtatious professionals, those who replace the qualitative experiences with partners chosen by related by an endless series of erotic conquest based on lies seductive. They are what's worse: the first relationship (where everyone is a little awkward) and the desire of people to disappear once the desire is sated - since he was the only factor of attraction. 2. that girls are more mature and more discreet not to let themselves be enslaved by showing off as the taste of those who often use their powers to obtain benefits of all kinds. Two suggestions are easy to implement and that are in clear opposition to all standards of the current culture, based on consumerism (and the profits of big business) more than our happiness. They are only the first of a long list of suggestions that still intend to do, all of them able to be implemented immediately by people of good will and are suffering from an active reason. We can not change the world, but we can, yes, change our destiny. <br />
