Introspection

A recent Psyche article revealed something unexpected: "67 per cent of the men and 25 per cent of the women opted to intentionally shock themselves, rather than spend a short period of time alone with their thoughts." Hence, introspection is far from common (for men). Apparently, I'm an exception. There are two primal emotions in life: Fear and Love (eg, my 2016...

Why is sex not part of the 7 Belief systems?

Last weekend, I received a question: why is sex not part of my concept of the 7 Belief systems? A very interesting question of which I’m not sure that it crossed my mind in 2015.

Lust

It is not easy writing about this topic. My 1st draft even omitted mentioning the intensity of Lust. Apparently, people still consider Lust as an innocent feature while making love. This topic is not about being horny or randy. This blog is about obsessive behaviour. It is about the Ramsay Bolton (GoT, Wiki) type of Lust. The Lust for killing, torture and...
