Sure, if all you're after is a quick lay.

Not me. I prefer that they last awhile.

I think about the universe as a giant clock, where everything fits into place, everything has a destiny. I think about humanity, working together over the millenia, not just to survive, not just some brutal mouth to feed, but finding ways to feed their families, working together to help one another. As the universal clock tics, they grow. We are no better than them, and they no better than us, merely different, strange and mysterious.

I think that, if we learn about our ancestors, we can learn about who we are, which to me, are endless wanderers, never at ease, always searching, over plains with minds begun as blank slates, filled with all that we see.

We are built from the land, and always have been, mind and body. It changes us as we grow. It becomes us.

We are an insane people, our minds speeding and leaping about like tree tree frogs with attention deficit disorder, and our insanity is our greatest gift.

The wise folk change themselves to suit the world. The fools try change the world to suit themselves, and we are wonderful fools, who can do impossible things, like for example, flying to the moon, because of our foolishness.

I love thinking about humanity.

I think about how socio-cultural relationships happen. I watch for patterns in society. I'd like to think I'm pretty good at understanding how others think (hopefully). If not I'd like to become that way. I like talking to others about this, but on a much smaller scale, just anything related to why people do things.

That might be spirituality. I am not sure.
You sound like a writer - inspiring! Thank you.
Yeah - that's spirituality, to me!
I like how you try to see other perspectives - I think that's one of the best ways to love others & ourselves.
I think spirituality & psychology (the study of the soul) are so similar.
And I think spirituality is realizing how everything/everyone is interrelated & especially striving for the higher good through the harmony of intellect & intuition.

That's so true (& funny) about our minds being crazily busy speeding & leaping like tree frogs.
Have you read, "Psycho Cybernetics"? It's been around a while, but I only recently discovered it. If you haven't read it, you might like it.

In your profile you mentioned humanism... is that a social & spiritual step beyond psychology?

"Women find atheists more attractive."

Why?

Better debate, I mean conversation?

Has this been your personal experience or is it just what you'd like to think?

If atheists can pleasure women in the here and now, that is very good.

Ha Funny - but goes both ways. It's not so much someone being atheist - (that's as much a limited view as many religions)... it's a question of preferring to relate to someone, not some regurgitated beliefs. Many women, (& probably men) tend to value someone who thinks for themselves, rather than someone who blindly embraces a group's belief package.

Atheists are "Supers." Smarter, better-looking, superior in every way. They also like to refer to themselves as "Brights."
