Art Noble is a dear friend of mine who spreads his unique views on the phenomenon of love…and here are his views on an ugly subject that most of us would rather avoid, but which we should investigate in order to be aware and informed of its evil ramifications…
The word “pedophilia” is the combination of two Greek words meaning love of children. From Psychology Today, “Pedophilia is considered a paraphilia, a condition in which a person’s sexual arousal and gratification depend on fantasizing about and engaging in sexual behavior that is atypical and extreme. Pedophilia is defined as the fantasy or act of sexual activity with children who are generally age 13 years or younger.” “The term paraphilia refers to intense sexual attraction to any objects or people outside of genital stimulation with consenting adult partners. A paraphilia is considered a disorder when the paraphilia is causing distress or threatens to harm someone else.” The translation from Greek of “philia” is brotherly love. Perhaps a better word for this “disorder” is “Pedosexualis,” as a sub-disorder of “Parasexualis.” Even that falls short of this activity.
The next thing that bothers me is the philosophical definition of love, or the “Nature of Love.” …

“An empty bottle of whiskey, a pair of fake breasts, a pair of tattered blue jeans, a toaster, an axe, and a stack of Brazilian Playboy magazines. These are some of the artifacts displayed at the Museum of Broken Relationships…” thank you for sharing, Alk3r!
How are you? I asked a friend in Manhattan. Oh, I’m just FINE, he said with a laugh—then proceeded to inform me that FINE was an anagram for Fuddled, Insecure, Neurotic and Egocentric. (Actually he used two hyphenated words for the ‘f,’ but I think I’ll leave what they are to your rich imagination.)
The fact is that almost every one of us is (or has been) fraught by a million insecurities—and who could blame us? Consider the world wars our species has endured, the concentration camps and gulags, the ugliness of misogyny and patriarchy that plague so many, in a nutshell, man’s inhumanity to man—all of which leave scars on the collective human psyche. Above all, consider our ephemeral nature, as fragile as a snowflake melting under a hot sun. No matter how big we are in the world, nothing can protect us from old age, sickness and death; yes, when Yama , Lord of Death throws his deadly noose around our necks to remove us from this plane of existence, no power on earth can stop him.

Dr. Gabor Maté: “When The Body Says No: Exploring The Stress-Disease Connection”…. A physician of great repute, Maté has seen in his clinic so many examples of the mind’s influence on the body (both in the cause of illness AND in its subsequent healing) that even to speak of the “mind-body link” is a false dichotomy.
The mind IS the body. The body IS the mind. He calls it mindbody unity. Thanks for a great post, Dan Sainsbury!
I am currently devouring an EXCEPTIONAL book by the wonderful physician Dr. Gabor Maté, called “When The Body Says No: Exploring The Stress-Disease Connection”. A physician of great repute, Maté has seen in his clinic so many examples of the mind’s influence on the body (both in the cause of illness AND in its subsequent healing) that even to speak of the “mind-body link” is a false dichotomy.
The mind IS the body. The body IS the mind. He calls it mindbody unity.
The premise of the book is that when WE as adults are not able to say no to others as an endemic character trait, or we are not able to get “on top” of a life-situation (with the resultant experiences of prolonged stress), then our body will say No for us, in the form of autoimmune diseases such as cancer, ALS, Crohn’s, and so on.
The theme that…
