The Five Most Desirable Male Entities Used in Female Pornography, According to Google

by Justin Deschamps, 

An archetype is a term referring to an influence on consciousness that crosses cultural divides. For instance, the fact men and women seek each other out for the purpose of sex, romance, and fellowship is an archetypal human experience—it doesn’t matter where you come from or what you believe, the drive to pair-bond is a human drive. Psychologically, archetypes have an instinctual or biological aspect, wherein certain drives are “hardwired” in the human psyche, such as the desire to survive, to love and be loved, and to seek out joy and play. Within human sexuality, there are ancient drives that influence both men and women.

While there is much to discuss with regard to the nature of men and women, we can claim one thing with a fair degree of certainty: the masculine aspect is a force that creates structure, and order, whereas the feminine aspect nurtures and propagates. What is received by the feminine, through the masculine, ripples out as creation and manifestation. In consciousness, this happens when you choose to be open-minded about something (a masculine active force), which then opens your mind to receive new information (a feminine receptive force), breading new ideas, perspectives, and desires (a child).

Within each of us are both aspects. And in society, as men and women, these aspects playout as well.

Women, by and large, are attracted to men that embody or exemplify certain archetypal traits, such as the successful man, the “bad boy,” the wise father, or the innocent youth.

The following video clip of a Jordan Peterson lecture discusses the influence of archetypes on female sexuality.

Specifically, a group of Google researchers used statistical analysis to pour through pornographic searches of women online. What they discovered matches the psychology of archetypes almost perfectly, that women, again, by and large, are drawn to certain types of male traits.

Having analyzed the psychology of sexual attraction, a few points come to mind to consider.

Women seem to be hardwired, through biology, to seek out competence. They are drawn to men who have proven themselves in some way by grappling with a challenge and gaining status as a result. What decides “success” changes depending on the cultural values at work. But for the most part, a woman determines the potential worth of a male mate based on a social value system.

Psychologists assert that the reason for female drive for competence comes from evolutionary biology. Baring children requires a tremendous time and energy investment on a woman’s part, especially during pregnancy and the first 3 years after birth. While a woman can take a more hands-off approach to raise her children, the research shows again and again that the more nurturing and love a child receives the healthier they’ll become, in almost all respects. This suggests that women need support from those around them to provide optimum parenting support for their children.

What qualities would a man need to demonstrate in order for a woman to feel safe and secure in attaching herself to a man for support, during these trying times of infancy for her children? Whether such a women attaches herself to a man, or a social group, the things she gets insofar as support are effectively equivalent.

The qualities are worldliness, competence, and sagacity—in other words, the ability to make good decisions that are effective and reliable. Whether a woman is a single parent or with a partner, she needs reliable support that actually helps her in her life, and by extension, helps the child. These dependable qualities, from an archetypal viewpoint, are masculine.

Thus, women are hardwired, it seems, to seek out men that can climb the ladder of status, through contests that prove to her he can truly be worldly, competent, and make good decisions.

Generally speaking, whether you’re a man or a woman, the thing that makes you successful is ambition and bravery—the ability to identify something you want, and pursue it, despite the fact you don’t know if you’ll be successful or not.

While women can certainly focus on a goal with all they have, statistically, men are more driven to obsess over something they want. One study showed that only 43% of women are likely to take big risks to advance their careers. This almost obsessive level of focus is what makes men good partners in the childrearing enterprise, because, as history has shown, men will sacrifice almost everything to protect their family, including their own lives.

So what does this have to do with female attraction?

Without citing every point and piece of evidence, I contend that women decide what is valuable and men pursue what women decide so that they can pair-bond with women.

In other words, men are hardwired to build themselves up, gain skill, and climb ladders of social status, so that they are seen as valuable to women. And women, by virtue of the fact they are more social than men, act as the gateways to society and the social world.

Hence, the female attraction archetypes reflected by Google’s study—the billionaire, the pirate, the rebel—are all examples of “beast men”—men who have proven themselves as ambitious and driven but have not been “tamed” by a woman.

A woman, by and large, is hardwired for socialization. Women, in this sense, are the keepers and holders of civilization and society. As such, a man becomes civilized or socialized, in this deeply archetypal sense, by going out into the wilderness, facing the dragon of nature, and coming back to society as an initiated man, a hero. A woman, seeing the hero in a man, seduces him with her female energy, taming his wild soul, and directing his powers of creation for the good of all. The hero is not just the hero for himself anymore, he’s the hero for the tribe, the nation, or the world.

I would argue, this is why most hero stories have a female figure that positively influences the hero, especially when the trial at hand pushes the hero to their limits.

Thus, the power women have to shape society and what men pursue is almost unimaginable. And this is why, I would argue, so much social programming is focused around women (e.g. Disney, romantic comedies, and soap operas.) These influences affect a woman’s sense of what is socially viable, what she thinks everyone else values. Thus, the cost of social programming that invalidates true masculinity, which is what comes from most mass media these days, hinders a woman’s ability to nurture the hero potential within her man, leading to pandemic dissatisfaction of women with men in relationships.

I agree with the notion that nagging is itself a symptom of an internal feminine (whether coming from a man or a woman) that does not know how to nurture the good qualities of another, and so seeks to change another through emotional intimidation and harsh judgment.

In this deeper sense, a woman’s true power of seduction lies not with her physical form, although that plays a major role. Her power is in what she values within a man, at a deeper level. The lost art of female seduction is that when a woman take an interest in a man, in what he pursues and values, she effectively tells him that his value choices are good for her, and by extension, society. This is why, history again shows, the most successful men were supported by women who directed their nurturing feminine energy into the mind of the man. With that cosmic feminine power of creation, all that her light shined on to him grew stronger within him.

Don’t let the terms man or woman confuse you. Remember, we each possess an internal masculine and feminine, which means we each play the role of nurturer or value pursuer in our own lives, for ourselves and those around us.

In closing, the socializing instincts of women have yet to be fully acknowledged, I would argue.

In today’s world, women have been encouraged, through mass media, to complain and decry that which they don’t value, instead of pouring their nurturing energy into that which is good and valuable for all.

But as the feminine reawakens on earth, more women, and men, are discovering the power of nurturing the principles of goodness, altruism, and honor, the principles of abundance that provide for all.

30 Deep Philosophical Quotes from Alan Watts That Will Help You Make Sense of Your Life

By Mayukh Saha / Truth Theory

There was a time when the West was quite ignorant about the philosophies of the East. The East had only remained as an area to conquer and exploit – that there was a rich Eastern philosophy was something the West never really explored. Until a few Westerners went on an Eastern philosophical journey and shared their thoughts with the wider Western audience. Alan Watts is one such amazing personality. At first, Alan Watts became an Episcopal priest. But later on, he left this route and went to California to join the faculty of the American Academy of Asian Studies.

Alan Watts’ mother was a missionary and she used to teach children from Asia. From a young age, Alan Watts was fascinated by stories and myths circulating all over Asia. They were rich with a taste of Eastern Philosophy. And so, he learned Chinese and dived deep to learn the intricacies of this complex philosophy.

After researching Zen Buddhism rigorously, he published one of his first and most famous books: The Way of Zen. The wisdom in the book fascinated the youth. It was not an insight into any religion, it was more of psychotherapy. From then on, Alan Watts had produced wonderful books ranging from natural history, Western history, cybernetics to sexuality, and semantics, etc. His wisdom can be seen in his words, and in his sayings. They will clear your mind and set a clear path before you.

Here are some of the quotes by Alan Watts that will really clear up your mental blocks:

1. We seldom realize, for example, that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.

2. We cannot be more sensitive to pleasure without being more sensitive to pain.

3. Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.

4. This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.

5. There will always be suffering. But we must not suffer over the suffering.

6. But I’ll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything.

7. Every intelligent individual wants to know what makes him tick, and yet is at once fascinated and frustrated by the fact that oneself is the most difficult of all things to know.

8. The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

9. To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.

10. This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.

11. A scholar tries to learn something everyday; a student of Buddhism tries to unlearn something daily.

12. When you get free from certain fixed concepts of the way the world is, you find it is far more subtle, and far more miraculous, than you thought it was.

13. Try to imagine what it will be like to go to sleep and never wake up… now try to imagine what it was like to wake up having never gone to sleep.

14. You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.

15. Problems that remain persistently insoluble should always be suspected as questions asked in the wrong way.

16. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.

17. The more a thing tends to be permanent, the more it tends to be lifeless.

18. One is a great deal less anxious if one feels perfectly free to be anxious, and the same may be said of guilt.

19. You didn’t come into this world. You came out of it, like a wave from the ocean. You are not a stranger here.

20. When we attempt to exercise power or control over someone else, we cannot avoid giving that person the very same power or control over us.

21. Never pretend to a love which you do not actually feel, for love is not ours to command.

22. There was never a time when the world began, because it goes round and round like a circle, and there is no place on a circle where it begins. Look at my watch, which tells the time; it goes round, and so the world repeats itself again and again.

23. The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.

24. Everyone has love, but it can only come out when he is convinced of the impossibility and the frustration of trying to love himself.

25. The positive cannot exist without the negative.

26. But the attitude of faith is to let go, and become open to truth, whatever it might turn out to be.

27. Words can be communicative only between those who share similar experiences.

28. The greater part of human activity is designed to make permanent those experiences and joys which are only lovable because they are changing.

29. Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun.

30. It’s better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.

So, find your way and clear your mind. Let the wisdom of Alan Watts pave your way to the future.

Study Finds Fans of Dark Humor More Likely To Be Intelligent

By John Vibes / Truth Theory

Are you a fan of dark humor? If so, research has shown that you might be more intelligent on average, and less aggressive as well. According to a 2017 study published in the journal Cognitive Processing, people who enjoy dark humor are more likely to be intelligent, and also less likely to be aggressive.

The experiments took place at the Medical University of Vienna, and involved 156 people from a wide range of different social and educational backgrounds who varied in age, but had an average age of 33. The participants were given a set of intelligence tests, and then monitored while being exposed to cartoons that contained what many would consider dark humor (or black humour, as it is known in the UK, where the study was conducted).

The researchers should not have been very surprised to see the connection between dark humor and intelligence, as other studies in the past have shown that people with high levels of intelligence are more likely to suffer from conditions like depression or anxiety. However, it likely did come as a surprise that the intelligent dark humor fans in the study were actually less prone to aggression than the test subjects who were upset or offended by the material.

The study showed that the people who were most upset by the jokes had average IQ scores, but they were also more prone to aggression in other scenarios as well, and likely had shorter tempers than the other participants in the study.

The authors of the study concluded that:

“Whilst a positive association between black humour processing and intelligence can be shown, aggressiveness and bad mood apparently lead to decreased levels of pleasure when dealing with black humour. Black humour processing is seemingly a complex information-processing task that depends on cognitive and emotional aspects. It can be hypothesized that these cognitive and emotional demands directly influence the mental operations underlying humour processing as they lead to an increased or decreased information-processing capacity but also facilitate the adapting of humour processing strategies in a quick and flexible way as humour processing is dependent on the content and structure of a joke.”

The researchers also noted that differences in things like age and gender did not seem to have any impact on how a participant felt about dark humor, as there was a range of different responses among people of the same background, and many shared responses among those from different backgrounds, although, the study did suggest that levels of education did seem to have an impact on a person’s response to dark humor.
