Revolution or Renaissance?

Everyone thinks of making a revolution nowadays. The tech revolution, the sexual revolution, the sextech rev. Reminiscent of the Cuban revolution, the Bolshevic or the French revolution. Against which other people had counter-revolutionized, as in reaction — which earned them a nickname such as reactionary. Force and counter-force. Action and resistance. Slippage and friction. What a Newtonian world! Newton’s laws are an expression of karma in nature. Weishaupt, Darwin, Marx and Nietzsche bring them down to society, biology, economy and politics. Karma upon karma of tension and exasperating retribution. Total madness.

Let’s take a little break.

In the history of Europe, the Middle Ages (or Medieval Period) lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. It began with the fall of the Western Roman Empire and merged into the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery. The Middle Ages is the middle period of the three traditional divisions of Western history: classical antiquity, the medieval period, and the modern period. The medieval period is itself subdivided into the Early, High, and Late Middle Ages.

The dark millennium seems milder to the eye, from a considerable distance, than the recent illuminated couple of centuries. Barbarian invasions and bubonic plague have been shadowed by world wars and nuclear bombs.

Between Genesis 1:1

In the beginning of God’s preparing the heavens and the earth —

and Genesis 1:2

the earth hath existed waste and void, and darkness is on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God fluttering on the face of the waters,

there must have been eons upon eons of alien history, pre-Adamic civilizations nuking themselves up, on this planet and/or elsewhere.

This unless the reader is narrow-minded enough to stubbornly insist that 1 John 1:1-4

That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we did behold, and our hands did handle, concerning the Word of the Life —
and the Life was manifested, and we have seen, and do testify, and declare to you the Life, the age-during, which was with the Father, and was manifested to us —
that which we have seen and heard declare we to you, that ye also may have fellowship with us, and our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ;
and these things we write to you, that your joy may be full.

and 1 John 1:5-7

And this is the message that we have heard from Him, and announce to you, that God is light, and darkness in Him is not at all;
if we may say — ‘we have fellowship with Him,’ and in the darkness may walk — we lie, and do not the truth;
and if in the light we may walk, as He is in the light — we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son doth cleanse us from every sin;

is but a philosophical fantasy; that some god made heavens and earth like a super-civilization would engage in cosmic endeavours; that the universe should be infinite ‘enough’ to host all those super-aliens out there.

If you wish to believe all this materialist crap, you may very well stop reading here, as we’re gonna fix ourselves a couple of groovy wings that are about to fly us through the Second Renaissance.

A decent ending to the dark ages, ancient or modern, dawns within the spirit of a new renaissance. It is a mental shift, not natural, not cosmic, not external, but internal, metaphysical, spiritual. The man, the woman, wakes up to realize that God stops by his / her humble abode, to break some bread, to sip the wine together.

The intellectual basis of the Renaissance was its own invented version of humanism, derived from the concept of Roman Humanitas and the rediscovery of classical Greek philosophy, such as that of Protagoras, who said that “Man is the measure of all things.”

Man, as the measure of all things, is a sequence of God because, if left alone by himself, orphaned of Light, man falls back to darkness (to an illusion of illumination, to a false enlightenment), together with all enlightening pretenses of various earthly creatures.

A spirit of Renaissance transgresses societal standards, ethical or moral conduits. Just like the demons of Revolution. While the spirit of Renaissance creates art and literature and music, the demons of Revolution destroy art, burn books and molest music with chaos, anarchy and tyranny.

Daring to toy with history, let’s place Elvis at the daybreak of a new Renaissance. With WW2 over and the first atomic bombs dropped, the dark ages have had reached their pinnacle. Time being ripe for a paradigm shift.

Since the beginning of his career, Elvis Presley has had an extensive cultural impact. According to Rolling Stone, “it was Elvis who made rock ‘n’ roll the international language of pop.” Rolling Stone encyclopedia of Rock and Roll describes Presley as “an American music giant of the 20th century who single-handedly changed the course of music and culture in the mid-1950s.” His recordings, dance moves, attitude and clothing came to be seen as embodiments of rock and roll. His music was heavily influenced by African-American blues, Christian gospel, and Southern country. In a list of the greatest English language singers, as compiled by Q Magazine, Presley was ranked first, and second in the list of greatest singers of 20th century by BBC Radio. Some people claim that Presley created a whole new style of music, “it wasn’t black, wasn’t white, wasn’t pop or wasn’t country- it was different”. He gave teens music to grow up with and listen to, as most singers in his time created music geared for adults.

Too bad the slang of the epoch is geared towards the false friend term ‘revolution’ as mental inertia still drifts today. But if you agree that a revolution is destructive and maleficent, while a renaissance is creative and beneficial, then we’re on the topic here.

Revolution usually breaks with the past, dismissing it as ‘ballast,’ while Renaissance is defined by embracing the past, enhancing its beauties up to a new perspective.

Social Sex during the Second Renaissance

Is sex meant only for procreation? Like a precise and limited bodily function? Like legs are for walking and hands for grabbing, or both for climbing, running, working, etc.

Turns out that most of our limbs, organs and body parts, from the head (eyes, ears, nose, mouth) down to our toes, are meant for quite a lot of purposes, besides the apparent ones.

A robot, or a droid, has been made to fulfil a given number of tasks with a given limb. A human is not a robot, nor exactly a droid.

Learning to make the difference between good and evil, humans can do good, or bad, with their limbs, and other body parts. This does not mean that the only good thing one may put his/her genitals at work is reproduction. As a matter of fact, reproduction can be bad, so bad that strict laws have been enforced through history to prevent unfortunate genetic mutations caused by it.

Sex is a form of communication. Like literature, like music, arts or math. A language.

Other forms of communication are gestures such as: spraying graffiti on a wall, stealing gnomes from open gardens, vandalizing shops, a hold up, throwing a rock (or many rocks), firing a gun (or a missile). Everything from scratching a paper note to starting a war sends a message, like a form of language, sophisticated or rudimentary.

Having sex in the dark, in secret, is hiding the message.

If the sex you’re having is right or wrong, that’s another matter, because what really matters is seeing sex like a dialog and thus your desire to express sex, to make a statement by the sex you’re having.

Any statement can be right or wrong, or partially right and partially wrong. These are the operators we’ve been given to deal with.

Sure, you don’t need the whole PornHUB to watch you having sex — only if you feel like it. But sharing an opening with your better half, in act or in word, or sharing thoughts and fantasies with friends, or perfect strangers, should benefit you (especially if you hide your location). Sharing is adding value to yourself. Loving others is loving yourself.

Promiscuity is the threshold for disease.

Indulge yourself in too many sticky fluids and deal with a higher risk of disability and death. These are only statistics. Not much in stopping the curious explorer from, well, exploring. David Livingstone knew about the risks before embarking for Africa.

It’s all up to you. If you enjoy the thrill of playing the sex equivalent of the Russian Roulette then –by all means– go for it. Don’t allow shame to mute your spirit. Even if the dare could break your body. What matters is letting your soul express herself. What matters most is communication. How else could we learn something new if living in shame and fear. Besides, how can you function in fear?

The Sextech Alternative

Sextech is an ingenious alternative to skip the risk of disease altogether. Because when you replace fooling around with watching/doing porn, with vibrant toys and little dolphins remote controlled by smart phone, then you make sure to wash them well and store them dry. No germs and no viruses.

The only health risk is mental. Your psyche may –and will– get fooled by your desires reflecting in the machine (screen, dildo, etc.). Men and women have had idols all through history. Sextech makes modern moving, rotating, screwing idols.

Sarcasm and parody, coupled with a healthy sense of humour, may prove to be good helpers in keeping your psyche up on the vertical. And yes, feed your soul by reading books, staying fit, yoga poses (not only the sexual ones), and reading at least one chapter of the Bible on a daily basis.

Just to keep you balanced.

Make sure that you are above, and beyond, of what you do. Escape the thing. Keep an eagle eye over your lesser-self. Yes! There’s more than one ‘self’ within your persona.

Will this Second Renaissance dramatically end under a Skynet-type rebellion of the machines?
Like in the Terminator movies.

Will the bad guys in power crush the love-of-beauty under their ugly plans for the next war?
Like in the Independence Day movies.

Will our deluded minds encase our aging bodies on comfy chairs, allowing material fake avatars to walk the streets instead of us?
Like in the Surrogates movie.

Who can tell?

There’s no piece of technology higher than the human body.
There’s no piece of software higher than the human soul.

What really matters, at the end of the day, is for a human to communicate with another human. Not a robot, not a book of shame, not a hall of fame.

Remember that quote: the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery.

This is the conduit of any Renaissance.

Yet, before flashing up to the stars, let’s take the time to listen to a Second Renaissance man.
Here and now.
