Circumcision Can Suck My D!ck

Of all the things that I’ve written about which I find unacceptable in the world this is one of the most distasteful and disgraceful. I can’t believe that I even have to take a stand against the involuntary genital mutilation of anyone at any age, let alone a newborn baby. It upsets me greatly that I live in a world where I have to say for the record that mutilating a newborn baby’s genitals is wrong.

If you are an adult and you want to modify your penis then by all means go right ahead. Who am I to stop you? It’s your penis do whatever you want with it. Split it down the middle and tie it in a knot for all I care. But as far as I’m concerned infant circumcision is a human rights violation. End of story!

However, this is just the beginning so strap in. This is going to be a long article because it addresses the topics of religious nonsense, the medical industry’s greed, and society’s overall insanity. Let us begin…

The menu is not the meal

alan

“The menu is not the meal”. This is the great Alan Watts’ way of re-stating Alfred korzybski’s famous quote “the map is not the territory”.

As humans, everything we know of the external world comes to us through our nervous systems. Our senses interpret the data coming in from the outside world, and we then create a world in our minds based on that information.

The words that we have in our minds which label things in the external world such as “chair”, or “apple”, or “god” are just that, they are in words in our head. They are how we internally represent external objects and events.

Words are like maps, in that maps are representations which by their very nature have to generalize, and distort, and delete information. A truly accurate and detailed map of Los Angeles would have to literally be the size of Los Angeles, with every detail of Los Angeles included within it. It would in fact have to be Los Angeles itself.

Simply put, words are not the objects they describe. The miracle of language is an abstraction, a construct, that tends to get mistaken for reality itself.

Melioristic Teleology

mind-blown

(The following is a letter that I wrote in 2011 to Rodney Mullen, skateboarding pioneer, and all-around genius. I was fortunate enough to have him recommend several books to me once upon a time. Those books were How Is Quantum Field Theory Possible? by Sunny Y. Auyang, The Anthropic Cosmological Principle by John D. Barrow and Frank D. Tippler, and A Mind Awake by C.S. Lewis.

WARNING! What you are about to read is verbose to say the least. The two scientific books are highly technical and had many words in them that I had to look up. I have used some of those big words in my writing below. Perhaps as you read this you will have fun learning some new words yourself. This letter started off simply as a book report but became a detailed description of my philosophy of personal spirituality.)

As you know…

There are a number of remarkably unlikely structural coincidences, large dimensionless ratios in combinations of micro/macrophysical parameters, curious tokens of divine artifice, and/or accidents of physics and astronomy, upon which our own existence crucially hangs.
