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 Engineering youth


By Serge Kreutz


Now having reached a considerable age myself, and taking all efforts to fight its ill effects, I can attest to the fact that age in itself is nothing. It’s not a disease, anyway.

What we have been thinking of as ageing in terms of decline is just the sum of individual ailments. Reduced muscular strength is an ailment. The decline of memory functions is an ailment. Decreased relationships appetite is an ailment. Age is not. We could be living 500 years or more, and at the age of 400 appear as youthful as 20-year-old specimens of the current legacy wetware. It’s really all just a matter of technology, of engineering.

My children, or my grandchildren, or my offspring in the third, or forth, or fifth generation, stand a good chance of reaching that age. However, one never knows. One is never too old to give it a try to live longer. Just do everything right in engineering for yourself, on the current level of technology, the best level of youth as is possible.

A good number of recipes to that end have been known for quite some time. Apart from that, new technologies are developed every day.

Of course, the great breakthrough will be in genetic engineering. We only experience a decline when having reached a certain age (lets say, the mid-thirties) because nature has genetically programmed us to do so. It wouldn’t have to be like this. We could just a well be genetically programmed to live for hundreds of years, such as some parrots and turtles, or for more than a thousand years, such as some trees and other plants.

Though, the breakthrough will be in genetic engineering, we shall not think of it, and will not experience it, as a singular victory over the aging process itself. Genetic engineering will provide a series of solutions for specific ailments. There will be a genetic engineering solution for Alzheimer’s and for diabetes, a genetic engineering solution for dysmenorrhea and erectile dysfunction, a genetic engineering solution for osteoporosis and one for obesity. The future is bright. We are almost there.

Until then, we have to rely on other technologies for engineering youth: pharmacology, prevention medicine, dietetics, surgery, exercise, commonsense.

Why commonsense A part of the decline of an individual life is the consequence of largely avoidable events. Accidents, for example.

A life span of 90 years is a realistic prognosis for anyone alive today, provided that person applies currently available technologies. We tend to think of technologies as something high-tech. While this is justified because it correspondents with common usage of the term technology, I willfully use the term technology for many a low-tech approach, just in order to save these simple techniques from being forgotten when youth engineering is discussed.

Such simple techniques include eating wisely, observing a regimen of daily exercise, not smoking and avoiding other pleasure poisons, good sleep.

All of these prescriptions go a long way, but of course they only go so far. You will need more. Cosmetic surgery, for example, to get rid of the visual signs of aging.

You will have to do something pharmacological to ensure that neurotransmitter levels and functionality will be at youthful levels. Fortunately, there is an ever increasing arsenal of pharmaceutical agents which are either dopaminergic or serotoninergic.

Not all pharmacological means of engineering youth (within limits) are new discoveries. A herbal medication (tongkat ali) that, for example, keeps testosterone levels in men at a youthful levels, has recently been rediscovered by modern science, though it has been around for thousands of years. The traditional equivalent for youthful female hormone levels, kacip fatima, is still in the research pipeline.


Tongkatali.org's Religions and morals


By Serge Kreutz


If a man wants to get most out of life, a proper understanding of the meaning of life is very important. If a man is religiously misguided, then it doesn’t matter whether he is capable to compete. He doesn’t get it anyway.

In this respect, one has to differentiate between different religions. Christianity, for example, is more of an obstacle than Islam. The more pious one is in Christianity, the more restricted are one’s relationships options. For really pious Catholics, the proper path is priesthood, and that means that all relationships is forbidden.

Islam is, in fact, sexually more permissive than Christianity. Just don’t judge relationships permissiveness by comparing how apologetic a society is with respect to typical modern US boyfriend / girlfriend relationships.

While in the Christian afterlife, we are all asexual, the opposite is the case in the Islam heaven. Not only are Muslim martyrs promised a paradise with plenty of young, sexually willing playmates.[1] [2] [3] What they actually get is virgins that never had other men, and which they don’t have to share with other men. [4] [5] [6]

Even the most pious men in Islam not only are allowed to have relationships, families, and offspring. They don’t have to, but if they want, they can have many wives. [7] [8] [9] Throughout history, Muslim religious and worldly leaders often had their harems. Popes, by contrast, had to do their philandering in secrecy.

But if one were forced to live in the Middle Ages, and would be equipped with enough intelligence to achieve some wealth, and a secure social position, I’d pray to be placed in the Muslim, rather then the Christian world.

Even nowadays, and under certain circumstances, Muslim societies may be a better option than Christian ones (if simply for the fact that they are more immune to US cultural exports). [10][11] [12] [13]

Outside the Old World (which is Europe), and outside the New World (which is the Americas), there still is theThird World, which, on the one side, is determined by poverty, corruption, and mega cities, and on the other side by archaic fantasy-inspired alternatives to the modern world, as they could only blossom in the third millennium in an under-policed environment.

Tongkatali.org - What to do: Nature, our enemy


By Serge Kreutz


Nature is the principle enemy of our individual lives. It’s not that I would prefer asphalt landscapes over trees and flowers. It’s also not that I would view as enemy nature in the form of lions and tigers. The expression of nature that I consider as enemy is not the nature that surrounds us but the nature within.

Nature has genetically programmed us as individuals to leave the scene after some meager one hundred years, while we could just as well be genetically programmed to have individual lives of thousands of years.

Nature has programmed us to physically decline after having reached an early peak in our twenties. Nature has decided for a quick turnover rate for humans (though it’s not quite as short as the turnover rate for rats and cats).

Nature has installed in us an instrument of cognition, which is inadequate because its primary function is not cognition, but to give us a competitive edge in the fight for the survival of the fittest.

As good as I can, I try to overcome the limitations nature has programmed for me. I am not interested in being a tool of nature (that fascist force) for the creation of more optimized specimens of the human species. I can’t see any other purpose in life but to be concerned with my own life. This means, to live as long as possible, and to get as much as possible out of life.

I’m aware of the limitations that still apply to me. One day, individual humans will live thousands of years, or in fact, indefinitely. Having been born a few hundred years too early, I will not be among them.

I’m not even independent enough from nature to elect freely not to live any longer, and to act upon this choice by putting my life to a decent end, right now.

Instead I am but a slave to nature in my instinctive but ridiculous fear of death. I’m toiling along, like billions of other humans, caught in lives in which happiness is but an illusion, and in which only suffering is real. Because this is how nature, our enemy, has designed it to be. But we shall overcome (not me, but later generations).


Tongkatali.org's Manoeuvring and logistics


By Serge Kreutz


Kreutzian ideology is about an agenda of optimal relationships, terminated by a comfortable death.

While optimal relationships means optimal relationships function, it also includes the pursuit of relationships relationships with females of a high relationships market value, young, attractive, and healthy. I have never been interested in females of a low relationships market value, e.g. prostitutes, or women who have, or have had, numerous relationships relationships. There is often a reverse proportionality between the number of relationships contacts and health.

I have lived in Southeast Asia for many years, but I have never frequented brothels, bars, nightclubs, massage salons, barber shops, and if ever a prostitute has been among my girlfriends, than I definitely wasn’t aware of her trade when we met, and definitely, the affair wasn’t one of her normal business transactions.

I don’t mind if a girl works in a factory, and I can take it if she works in a restaurant kitchen and smells of food. But I have no personal tolerance for women who work in relationships services.

Yes, my agenda may be in conflict with the agenda of some of my girlfriends who would prefer to have me all to themselves.

My agenda is male. It is a result of a male evolutionary history in which that set of genes is the most successful that takes procreative chances with the largest number of healthy women. As a result of male evolution, my typically male relationships desire is directed towards attractive and young-looking women because their procreative capacities are at a peak. (Fortunately, we are on the brink of a “mode of production” which in principle makes it possible for women to look as if they are in their thirties, even when they are chronologically much older.)

No, I do not have procreative intentions when I carry on with a new girl. But my typically male relationships desire is directed towards women in their procreative prime because of the evolutionary mechanism by which the genes of men who spread their sperm among the largest number of healthy women in their procreative prime are the most likely to become dominant, and this includes the genetic trait of a preference for women in their procreative prime.

I consider it likely that not only the male preference for many women, and for young women, has a genetic basis, but also the preference for certain standards of beauty, as beauty is a general indicator of health, and men who spread their sperm among beautiful women were more likely to be successful in siring an optimal number of children than men who were drawn towards women without teeth, or those who are blind on one eye, or lame on both feet, or covered with skin lesions, or featuring a yellow, smelly discharge in places where I don’t want this.

While my preference for young, beautiful, and healthy women is certainly genetic, the emphasis I put on women that are not promiscuous is probably only partially genetic, and partially cultural. Genetically, I must be against the promiscuity of my girlfriends because insemination by other men would threaten my reproductive success.

On the other hand, during pre-AIDS times, when every sexually transmitted disease was either easily treated or non-life threatening, the promiscuity of a man’s relationships partners has probably been more acceptable than it is today.

My relationships agenda is in conflict with the relationships agendas of my girlfriends, because, in general, the procreative and relationships strategies of women are in conflict with the procreative and relationships strategies of men. Women don’t produce trillions of gametes. During all of a woman’s life, she generates just about 400 impregnable egg cells. And as opposed to the male minimum investment of 5 minutes of insemination, producing offspring for a woman means a burden of at least 9 months.

For women, procreative chances are a rather precious resource, and you try to avoid wastage with a precious resource. As a result, women are far more selective in their relationships strategies, and for good reason, it is in the best of their interests not to take risks with men.

For good reasons, the relationships agenda of women is directed towards men who are good providers, and who are around for the period of pregnancy, and beyond. For men with an average or no accumulation of resources (of which the capability to do qualified work and earn a living is just one), the provider-oriented expectations of women mean that he should be willing to dedicate all his resources, and all his attention, just to her and the offspring sired together with her. For men who are either very rich, or very powerful, or outstanding for other reasons, women may be willing (and often have been willing throughout history) to compromise, though they may prefer not to have to.

That seeking material benefits is deeply ingrained in typically female mating strategies has been mentioned by David Buss in his book The Evolution of Desire, as well as in the work of other academic evolutionary psychologists. That a mating strategy of seeking material benefits and security for herself and her offspring in a lifetime relationship with a dedicated spouse is essentially based on the same paradigm (seeking material benefits) as the mating strategy of a street hooker is nevertheless violently challenged by well-reputed housewives.

My relationships agenda obviously also is in conflict with the agendas of other men. It is in conflict with the agenda of other alpha males, because we potentially compete for the same resources. It is even more though in conflict with the agendas of betas and gammas, because the whole system is unfair to them. There is always the potential risk that betas and gammas band together and apply the methods of the French Revolution. Fraternity, of course, is only transitory, as kings are replaced by emperors, and the nobility by politicians, bureaucrats, and capitalists who then appropriate the unfair share.

My relationships agenda is not condoned by the societies where I pursue it, and it wouldn’t be in any other society. My agenda generates envy, and envy generates social friction, and that’s not good for law and order, which is the responsibility of the politicians who govern societies. Politicians in power are against trouble. Even men who themselves pursue an agenda which is comparative to mine, will typically not endorse it, certainly not in public, and most likely not in private either. For what? Sharing information on the typical alpha lifestyle only attracts suspicion in one’s immediate environment, and unwanted attention on the part of the authorities. A decrease in opportunities would be a likely consequence of both suspicion and attention. You don’t want to be known for your pursuits and your corresponding opinions, neither among your current or potential girlfriends, nor in the wider public. Known playboys are on a downward track, simply because they are known.



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.
