On our English pages, you often see the word "relationships". This is just sanitized language. On our English pages, "relationships" refers to what couples, when not sleeping, do in bed. Or, if so inclined, on the kitchen table.

English is a rather hypocritical language. Many words for natural bodily functions and processes have dirty connotations, and polite speakers like us have to go to considerable length to communicate meanings without naming them. But we nevertheless hope you get the point.

Tongkatali.org's Alternatives


By Serge Kreutz


Alternatives to a violent future are not very likely to succeed. But widespread drug use could be of help. Marijuana can make peaceful because of its potential to induce mild paranoia. Paranoid people seek emotional shelter. There is a historical antecedent in the 1960s and 1970s. Furthermore, social losers on opiates are quite happy with their fate as long as they are supplied with their drugs. And overall, in drug-consuming communities, relationships market value is less important. Highly successful individuals could derive benefits through personal freedom if fewer laws restrict them. Then there would be less incentive to bank on destruction.

Tongkatali.org - Tongkat ali for a healthy prostate and higher testosterone levels


By Serge Kreutz


Testosterone replacement therapy makes prostate cancer definitely worse, and it has even been suspected that testosterone replacement therapy may cause prostate cancer in the first place.

Even when a men suffers from a non-cancerous prostate enlargement (benign prostate hypertrophy) many physicians hesitate to prescribe testostetone patches.

So, how about tongkat ali? Anyway, numerous studies have shown that tongkat ali increases testosterone.

So, is there a danger that tongkat ali may worsen prostate conditions?

Surprisingly, the opposite seems to be true. While tongkat ali hasn't been processed yet into a prostate medication or a prostate cancer cure, a string of recent studies has shown the effectiveness of tongkat ali against cancer cells.

And human studies have shown promising results for a possible treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia.

And all of this in spite of tongkat ali causing elevated testosterone.

Tongkatali.org - Ideology: A materialistic perspective (if we understand the material causes for sweet love and outrageously good relationships, then we can engineer both of it)


By Serge Kreutz


Kreutz Ideology advocates a materialistic approach to understanding of the world. “Materialistic”, in this context, does not mean: driven by concerns for material benefit.

The materialism I refer to is a philosophical concept, built on the conviction that for everything that happens in the world, even in the realm of love and relationships, there is a cause in the material world, and this cause can maybe be investigated and maybe be understood. This is what science is about.

If causes have been investigated and understood, such causes can be reenacted, or created. This is when we take the step from science to technology, and engineering.

Science and technology are applicable to the emotion of missing a loved person no less than they are to bridging the Mississippi. Which is why the first series of articles I ever wrote on love and relationships was headlined “Engineering love”.

The opposite of philosophical materialism is philosophical idealism. Now, this idealism doesn’t refer to us being idealistic in that we try to build a better world, or, on a lower scale, a working long-term love relationship. Philosophical idealism refers to the idea that there is something outside the material world, on which the material world depends.

“Idealism is the doctrine that ideas, or thought, make up either the whole or an indispensable aspect of any full reality, so that a world of material objects containing no thought either could not exist as it is experienced, or would not be fully “real.” Idealism is often contrasted with materialism, both belonging to the class of monist as opposed to dualist or pluralist ontologies. (Note that this contrast between idealism and materialism has to do with the question of the nature of reality as such. It has nothing to do with advocating high moral standards, or the like.)”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idealism

I am not a philosophical idealist. I am a philosophical materialist. I understand that humans, though not all of them, can understand, to a certain degree, what happens in the world.

As they say: the proof of the pudding is in eating it. Or, the proof of our understanding is that we can make it. This applies equally to constructing bridges and to constructing optimal relationships of love and relationships.

However, there is an important twist to all of this. It is not just that, in as much as we understand the world, we can create it, but that, whether we understand the world or not, it always also creates us. When Darwin summarized the emerging knowledge on the origin of species, and when, subsequently, humans developed the knowledge of genetic engineering, it wasn’t just that we got better in shaping our world. Our new technologies also reflected back on us in no small dimension. Idealism took a major blow. And again, idealism will take another blow when medical science will have advanced to a stage, as it surely will, when in principle, it can afford humans an indefinite life span.

Alas, we are not quite there yet.

But regardless of when our technologies will have sufficiently evolved for this exciting prospect, the fact remains that it is our technologies, or (to use an older, and wider, designation) our modes of production that shape our opinions, and that only with sufficient cognition, we can see beyond this.

Just as our knowledge on the origin of species has important roots in 19th century philosophy, so does our understanding of the manner in which our modes of production reflect back on our minds.

The following is quoted from the preface of Karl Marx’ “A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy”, written in 1859:

“The general conclusion at which I arrived and which, once reached, became the guiding principle of my studies can be summarized as follows. In the social production of their existence, men inevitably enter into definite relations, which are independent of their will, namely relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of their material forces of production. The totality of these relations of production constitutes the economic structure of society, the real foundation, on which arises a legal and political superstructure and to which correspond definite forms of social consciousness. The mode of production of material life conditions the general process of social, political and intellectual life. It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.”

http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1859/critique-pol-economy/preface.htm

In the original German version, the above quote reads like this: “Das allgemeine Resultat, das sich mir ergab und, einmal gewonnen, meinen Studien zum Leitfaden diente, kann kurz so formuliert werden: In der gesellschaftlichen Produktion ihres Lebens gehen die Menschen bestimmte, notwendige, von ihrem Willen unabhaengige Verhaeltnisse ein, Produktionsverhaeltnisse, die einer bestimmten Entwicklungsstufe ihrer materiellen Produktivkraefte entsprechen. Die Gesamtheit dieser Produktionsverhaeltnisse bildet die oekonomische Struktur der Gesellschaft, die reale Basis, worauf sich ein juristischer und politischer Ueberbau erhebt und welcher bestimmte gesellschaftliche Bewuusstseinsformen entsprechen. Die Produktionsweise des materiellen Lebens bedingt den sozialen, politischen und geistigen Lebensprozess ueberhaupt. Es ist nicht das Bewusstsein der Menschen, das ihr Sein, sondern umgekehrt ihr gesellschaftliches Sein, das ihr Bewusstsein bestimmt.”

Society and Mind in Marxian Philosophy

http://www.marxists.org/archive/pannekoe/society-mind/ch01.htm

To conclude that our minds mirror our modes of production is good science. But there is an anachronism in Marx’ thought. If anyway the modes of production determine ideologies, then the interference of Communist revolutionaries would be obsolete.

But Marx himself was a child of his times, when socialism among intellectuals was a fashionable idea.

Furthermore, his analysis of everybody belonging to a social class, the interests of which are reflected in his consciousness and ideologies, had more appeal in the 19th century but is less applicable to the more pluralistic and globalized present times. Nevertheless, it remains true that while on a social level, everybody’s consciousness and ideology is a representation of the modes of production, this consciousness and ideology is, on an individual level, a representation, or simply a rationalization, of a person’s interests.

I myself, of course, cannot escape the fact that my own ideology, too, is a representation of both, current technologies and my individual interests. However, I have at least some awareness of this interdependence.
