Yeah, I was aware that's not what was being referred to, but I thought it was relevant.
I'm reading the link now.

It is not pleasant to be forced to face something new, but that, quite often is life, and this is just part of its great journey.
Truth, that is. I just suck at life. I eventually learn, but I always complain a lot before I finally get the message. I'm sure I'll wind up there eventually, it will probably take a few more whacks to the head from the life-stick before it sinks in. :P

The internal chemical reactions of the body during sex are similar to the internal chemical reactions when smoking crack.
Anyway-it's pretty interesting.
It is, indeed, bs. Lies and more lies. Good guidelines to know what to expect, but don't rely on them or you'l be in for a big -- and probably unpleasant -- surprise.
The human body is so messed up. We form attachments to inanimate objects and become addicted to just about everything far too easily. Humans, who have no natural weapons, no natural armour, and somehow no natural predators. How we've survived as a species thus far confounds me. The Human Way seems to involve little more than being incapable of learning lessons, and continuing to mindlessly stumble forward until we reach our goal. How will we survive expansion into space? Or will we even make it that far? :P

Acceptance = love looks like a beautiful equation, I just wish I didn't have so many preconceived notions and lies and bullshit and negative emotions and insecurity in the way.
I only hope I learn this before I end up being trapped in, and causing, a life full of unfulfillment and regret.
