If you’ve ever read or heard anything along those lines, I can sum it all up in one succinct word:
Anything that polarizes between male and female regarding capabilities, strengths, tendencies and whatever else (excepting literal physical plumbing and body parts):
It occurred to me, as I was pruning my book collection prior to moving (and tossing out a book that resembled this blogpost’s title), that anything we ever thought we knew or that we were told, even by so-called “experts” and “professionals”, is complete and utter
According to a recent study**, males who were primary caregivers of newborn babies showed significant re-wiring of their brains that came to resemble more of a female caregiver’s brain than males who were not primary caregivers.
The human brain’s incredible adaptability means that this can be extrapolated to introduce the idea that any given male and any given female can develop capabilities, strengths, tendencies and whatever else someone might choose as a consequence of exercising freewill and making requisite efforts to practice those things.
When society programs children to believe that boys are better at math and spatial thinking and point to their scans and studies “proving” such, they completely disregard the fact that children ARE programmed by their environment and caregivers (and thus have their brains wired a certain way) and that girls have often been left out of toys and gameplay that lead to developing those strengths (and thus wiring their brains into a self-fulfilling prophecy of non-competence) while boys are given more ample opportunities and encouragement to develop those points. Later, discriminatorily, a child’s (programmed) experientially-wired brain is used in favor of males and against females and backed up by faulty psuedo-science, as though it were actual truth and not the result of social programming (engineering).
So what does this mean for the future of the human race?
Post-Event, when the so-called “war” between the sexes has been round-filed and the adversarial polarization of Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine energies (which will likely be re-named as those energies are not intrinsic to any given binary gender) is firmly in the past – the future is unimaginably bright and quite unimaginable (though we’ll sure give it a try! 😀 ) because all of the mainstream’s basic “fundamentals” that we’ve been operating off of up to this point were all a product of negative influences – whether directly or indirectly. Once those negative influences are no longer the foundation we build off of, even the sky’s not the limit, any longer.
Break it down to constituent parts and a human is comprised of two parts: Inside and Outside. We try to stuff as much of our Higher Self’s energetic Soulbody into that teeny-tiny physical meatsuit and treat it as though it’s the sum total of human existence and experience. Here’s a tip: we’re bigger on the OUTSIDE of the meatsuit than we are on the INSIDE of it!
Sorry, Doctor – we’re actually NOT ‘Bigger on the inside!”
Some folks even believe that the meatsuit is ALL there is and completely eschew any thought of the existence of their Soulbodies altogether! (How limiting!) Other folks think that the scraps of Soulbody that are stuffed into the meatsuit (like one does with bell peppers) are the sum total of all there is for us, especially since the meatsuit will eventually be discarded like a used-up candy wrapper. And some folks who are a bit further along in enlightenment (but not all the away along) are aware that there is more to our soulbody than can be stuffed (like a pepper) into a meatsuit.
Nope. Nope Nope Nope. And again, NOPE! It goes even farther than that!
“We” (or “I”) and all the Inside AND Outside soulbody bits that coherently make up our “self” (Higher or otherwise) are infinite energy that is, itself, only a scrap of the entirety of the Source Soulbody (aka “God”, “Goddess”, “Higher Power”, etc.) that has spread out to more intimately explore the different facets of itself as incarnated (there’s those meatsuit soul-vehicles+ again!) beings. We ARE Source, I AM Source.
We are, indeed, the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. *
Hence, Source calling itself the great “I AM”. All of us, individually or all put together (including every other form of life that is out there) ARE Source and will someday finish our explorations of Ourselves and will return to Source once again.
* “We believe that the universe itself is conscious in a way that we can never truly understand. It is engaged in a search for meaning. So it breaks itself apart, investing its own consciousness in every form of life. We are the universe trying to understand itself.”
DELENN, Babylon 5, “Passing Through Gethsemane” (1995)
“We are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. And as we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective.”
DELENN, Babylon 5, “A Distant Star” (1994)
+ Actually, considering the fact that all matter is energy anyway, our meatsuits are ALSO bits of that infinite Source energy, too!
