There are lots of stuff out there explaining that reason has limitation and that it fails to comprehend reality.
Yes, but that mostly comes from people who are too afraid to even begin to think about anything – especially what is real.
We tend to oppose intellect/reason to emotions /impulse while emotions tend to amplify any abstract idea.
The emotions are most popular amongst the herd, as it is through the emotions they gain their greatest happiness. If you’re an individual (even ever so slightly) life live through the emotions is simply not enough. It is rationality that allows you to flourish both intellectually and spiritually – and imaginatively, because of the greater range of thought a person has at their command.
I mean I don't think humans will act or progress only based on empty words/ideas/principles/codes/rules...... those principles should have some resonance to push us to move.....
I agree. Religions, academic philosophy and science all operate on “empty words/ideas/principles/codes/rules” – and our animal nature remains mostly intact. To progress at all you need to have a strong attachment to wanting to understand what is real.
but what about instincts ?
We’re an animal, so instinct is part of us, but we more importantly have consciousness and with it we can override those instinctual urges that aren’t necessary or advantageous for our development towards greater rationality.
For instance if we consider male with inbuilt resistance and that in modern society males have to take shyte to merge with society ( society = book of women) any form of verbal agression, mockery, provocation he will have to internalize it wich result in self destruction because anger, frustation, abuse is taken inwardly......which push men to become feminized ( women with their tendencies to surender do well in society) and let go of their inbuild resistance...
Without this inner tendency to resist they naturally get contaminated.
Yes, it’s true that men take a lot of shit from women – shit
that they’d never take from other men. They’ll take the girlfriend’s moods swings: “I love you / I hate you / I love...” or the wife’s nagging: “Don’t ask me where your keys are, you’re a grown man, you should...” - but they'll take all this shit because women give them the emotional hits they crave. And all that anger and frustration they experience isn’t because they don’t want to be involved with woman, quite the opposite, they suffer because they know (even if it is only intuitively) that they can't live without woman.
But to not get contaminated we must locate where is the truth .
Isolation has been proposed.
Men are “contaminated” by woman from a very early age. First he craves his mother’s love and attention, and then when he has grown up he looks to replace those same emotional pleasures through relationships with other women. It is therefore a natural thing to want to be involved with women, and if you are young and still developing your mind a relationship with a woman can be useful – even if it is only to experience suffering on a deeper scale.
