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 Moral-values philosophy


By Serge Kreutz


On a social level, morals are a representation of a society’s modes of production. On a personal level, morals are a representation of an individual’s biological interests. What morals never are, is a result of independent philosophical contemplation.

There are no logical moral values. It’s as simple as this. All moral values are perceived values. They are highly arbitrary. The moral values of current democratic societies are no more correct than the moral values of slave-holding ancient Rome, or of a cannibal Melanesian society 200 years ago. They are just different.

Moral relativism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_relativism

That the moral values of ancient societies were different from current moral values is greatly related to the fact that the modes of production in ancient societies were different. Because our social existence determines our consciousness, including what we consider moral and not moral, living in different forms of societies (which are based on different modes of production) will result in holding different moral views.

An explanation of the Marxist view on how morals (and other elements of the superstructure) relate to societies and their modes of production can be read through the following link (on the linked to page, scroll down to the headline “Base and Superstructure”).

Historical Materialism
http://www.age-of-the-sage.org/philosophy/history/marx_historical_materialism.html

That all moral values are just a matter of personal choice is an element of Sarte’s existentialism, which in itself is a form subjectivated materialism. Sartre’s way of saying that existence precedes consciousness is that existence comes before essence.

“Sartre stressed individual moral responsibility over structural causation but without denying the importance of the latter.”
http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/sartre/

On the other hand, Sarte tried a synthesis of humanism (for which self-determination is a central concept) and materialism.

“Though critical of its bourgeois variety, Sartre does support an existentialist humanism the motto of which could well be his remark that ‘you can always make something out of what you’ve been made into”.”
http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/sartre/

This, of course, supports the assumption that morals are arbitrary, even though it ads a humanistic dimension of responsibility.

The moral values of current democratic societies may be of a more gentle (and humanistic, and more humane) kind than those of slave-holding Rome or Melanesian cannibals. But we better be prepared that the moral values that are commonly accepted today will feel as outmoded to humans who live a few hundred years from now as the moral values of slave-holding Rome or Melanesian cannibals feel outmoded to most people now.

Comparing the complexity of the law applied in modern societies with the relative simplicity of the law of primitive societies, we can conclude that today’s moral values are more sophisticated. But the more sophisticated moral values become, the more difficult it is to recognize that they are just as arbitrary as simple moral values.

With no quantity of moral sophistication, and not by creating ever more complex ethical and legal systems, will we be able to overcome the most basic dilemma: that there is no philosophical or biological basis why any kind or form of ethics should be preferable in principle to any other kind or form, or, for that matter, to the absence of all kinds or forms of ethics.

But while there may not be a philosophical or biological one, there may well be a practical basis for preferring a complex and gentle moral system over a more simple and brutal one: that we prefer a peaceful society over a violent one.

The initial conclusion that there are no logical moral values per se is closely related to the cognition that, for however long we may be able to extend the human lifespan, the individual lives of each of us will definitely end with each of our individual deaths. No rebirth, no afterlife. And regardless of how long we live, when measured to the logical endlessness of time, each of us just exists for an infinitely short moment. But when we are dead, we are gone forever.

It doesn’t matter whether we were “good” or “bad”. When we are dead, there will be no reward and no punishment.

But for as long as we do occupy the surface of this planet, it makes sense to stay out of trouble. It is only natural that we do not want to become the victims of crime, and that we do not want to become the victims of so-called justice, being incarcerated by authorities, or murdered by the institutions of states that perceive truth in moral values which we know are fictitious.

So, as moral values are fantasies, what is real.

At the core of our existence are biological parameters, not ethical ones. Our interests in shelter and food, our illogical desire to live and not to die, our fear of pain and sorrow. And most of all: our plain relationships urges.

As argued above, in a social context, the moral values of specific societies always are a representation of the modes of production of the respective societies.

On a personal level, the moral values of any given individual who professes to possess moral values are, more than anything else, a representation of that persons biological interests, specifically his or her relationships interests.

This is why men who have problems competing for relationships success in pluralistic market economies will typically subscribe to moral values that allocate just one woman to every man. Such moral values, they feel, will guarantee them their fair share of one woman each (because promiscuity is restricted).

Biological, relationships interests are also the emotional force behind the fact that older and less attractive women in pluralistic market economies always tend to uphold stricter moral rules than young and beautiful women. The stricter the moral rules, the easier for older and less attractive women to fend off the competition of those who are younger and more beautiful.

There are many other facets of how the modes of production determine the moral values people subscribe to (if indeed they do subscribe to any), such as the ability to control sexually transmitted disease.

And there are ongoing sophistications in the human modes of production which will have a major impact on relationships morals, such as our emerging capability to produce, via cosmetic surgery, for both women and men, a lifelong youthful appearance.

Such modes of production, or technologies will allow those individuals who are economically successful (and possess the intellectual capacity to be just that) to also remain the physically most attractive, whatever their age.

Educated women who are, chronologically, 50 years old, but look as if they were 25, and thus maintain the highest relationships market value, do not have to make an intellectual escape into feminist morals that deplore sexist attitudes in our societies. Instead, they will profit from these sexist attitudes.


Butea superba, tongkat ali, and how to return optimism to your life


By Serge Kreutz


When we were teenagers, anything went.

In our 20s, we felt on top of the world. The future was ours, and we were excited.

In our 30s, we experienced the onset of maturity. We knew we were better at many things then either those younger, or those older.

In our 40s, midlife crisis. A sense that we are beyond our zenith in many things, not just physical attractiveness, or physical strength.

So now what?

Resign to one's fate? Turn to alcohol or drugs. I can understand such choices. Going to die anyway, so at least let's feel good and easy (as long as those substances still elevate our feeling).

No my cup of coffee, though.

Of course, I also think: Going to die anyway. Let's have some fun as long as I can.

But for me, no drug or alcohol can match the kick I get out of having relationships, being engulfed in desire, exploding in an orgasm, and relaxing into the deep void.

For me, optimism is just another word for a realistic expectation that there will still be great relationships on the road ahead.

But how to feed such confidence?

First of all there has to be relationships desire.

Now, from numerous communications with people during midlife crisis and beyond, I know that relationships desire is not guaranteed to be there as it was in our teens and twenties.

It is a step in the right direction that there is so much porn on the Internet. This overall elevates relationships desire, and gives people a sense in their lives.

Tongkatali.org Butea superba doping


Butea superba improves athletic performance in humans. This has been well established, even in research by the Thai Doping Control Center at the Mahidol University in Bangkok. See scientific study here:

https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/12f9/c34f3def0c87f0c968df48d1c6c334e712f9.pdf

Article continues below printscreens:





However, butea superba is not yet on the list of prohibited substances of the World Anti Doping Agency, WADA.

It's not that they wouldn't like to prohibit it. But they don't know how to test for it.

Butea superba affects the whole hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. Thus, ratios of hormonal metabolites are not skewed as they would be with outright testosterone or anabolic steroids doping.



Mobile Internet access in the Philippines


All cell phone operators in the Philippines offer prepaid Internet access per day, week, or month, or per set chunks of data transfer, measured as megabytes or gigabytes. Time-based arrangements are much more economical.

Foreigners can buy SIM cards at shops of the mobile operators, and at some phone shops.

There is great diversity of Internet packages, and many promotions are poorly published.

Tongkatali.org's The future of time travel, and this is how it will be done


By Serge Kreutz


Contrary to what Einstein proclaimed, time is not an illusion. The linearity of time may actually be the only constant of physics accross multiple universes.

Time travel nevertheless is a reality. But not with a technology that would propel matter at velocities faster than the speed of light. Because matter desintegrates long before it moves that fast.

On the other hand, information is really comfortable at that rate of movement. Because information in every computer travels at the speed of electricity, which is the speed of light.

Time travel doesn’t move matter backwards on a scale of linearity. Time travel resolves matter into information and transfers it to a current position.

A peculiarity of time is that while monodirectional linear, it is of endless width. The number of events that can happen simultaneously is unlimited.

So, whenever time travel copies and reconstructs a reality of the past based entirely on information for the time traveler to be inserted, this then creates a parallel now, with its own future, in its own universe.

To answer Stephen Hawkins question as to where the tourists from the future are: well, time travel isn’t round trip journeys. Once a past time that has been recaptured and transformed in a present time, in its new universe, the time traveler cannot normally be aware of a future in the universe from where he departed, and he can’t go back there. Rather, the new parallel universe has its own future. No grandfather paradox here.

However, for humans who already have arrived in the future, traveling to the past may not be an attractive option. What would that be good for? Sightseeing? There are better technologies for this purpose, with predictable outcome, such as 3D history tours. Time travel into the past robs any individual of the amenities of the future, including time travel technologies.

But at the core, time travel is the same as modifying the past for a better present. Not as Orwellian propaganda, but for real.

Because any time the past is modified, the presence is a new bubble universe, with its own, distinct future.



Standardised water‐soluble extract of Eurycoma longifolia, Tongkat ali, as testosterone booster for managing men with late‐onset hypogonadism?

Tambi MI, Imran MK, Henkel RR.

Summary

In most countries, millions of people are relying on herbal medicines as remedy for numerous ailments. In South‐East Asia, Eurycoma longifolia Jack, also known as ‘Malaysian ginseng’ or Tongkat ali, is used to combat stress and disease and to improve physical strength. Moreover, the compounds of the roots of this plant are reported to have aphrodisiac and testosterone enhancing effects in the rat. Considering that human studies are not available, 76 of 320 patients suffering from late‐onset hypogonadism (LOH) were given 200 mg of a standardised water‐soluble extract of Tongkat ali for 1 month. The Ageing Males’ Symptoms (AMS) according to the standardised rating scale and the serum testosterone concentration were taken. Results show that treatment of LOH patients with this Tongkat ali extract significantly (P < 0.0001) improved the AMS score as well as the serum testosterone concentration. While before treatment only 10.5% of the patients did not show any complaint according to the AMS scale and 35.5% had normal testosterone levels, after the completed treatment 71.7% and 90.8% of the patients showed normal values, respectively. Thus, Tongkat ali extract appears to be useful as a supplement in overcoming the symptoms of LOH and for the management of hypogonadism.
