Masturbating your way to reality. Good luck.


Would you say that a heroin addict coming down from a high and experiencing the desultory crash is experiencing reality?

Of course not. He is going through just as a distorted experience as that which he experienced when he was high on heroin.

Which is one of the reasons he will turn back to the drug.

Now it's been scientifically proven that pornography releases chemicals in the brain either equally as addictive or more addictive than heroin.

Would you say the person coming down from that high is going to experience anything like real reality in the crash?

And what is the viewer of porn going to do about it? That's right, turn to more porn - and more explicit and evil forms of it.

So, according to the "thought experiment" of this CNA article, a person should continue in his evil habit in order to experience the desultory crash of the heroin addict that makes him turn further to the drug.

Yeah. Real smart.

Why, of course! Masturbate your way to reality! Now why didn't I think of that?

Because I'm not deep enough. I don't reach after the "deeper" issues.

Problem with me is I just don't know how to go "deep enough".

Yeah. Because pornography has something deep about it. Well, I suppose hell's abysses are deep.

I just don't have enough "thought experiments".

Of course, one does not need porn to masturbate. I cannot speak to the addictive quality of the former but the latter was a major problem most of my adult life.

If C.West another others are actually telling men (or women) to masturbate they are more a whack job (my pardon) than I had imagined. Bl. JPii must be having conniption fits that his opus is so abused.
