  1. very advanced energy practice

    I actually first came across the basic idea in the novel Valley of the Dolls decades ago. It was a simple passage near the very end where the female partner in a romantic relationship realized that her and her partner's breath were completely in sink. It stood out as she was a manipulative drug user who used her nipples as ornamentation beneath see through shirts, and was not a character one expected any spiritual type redemption from. This being said, application is limited.

  10. What is Patriarchy

    @Aetherous wrote that he didn't know what patriarchy was. And both @dawei and @Lakshmi have expressed confusion regarding the definition. These are all people I hold in some esteem, and, as such, when they express confusion I trust that there is honestly confusion. @rideforever and @Patrick Brown also expressed some confusion, although I lean toward the intent being obfuscation and argumentation more than clarity with these individuals regarding this subject. It seems to me the foundation of understanding this wide and at sometimes very convoluted subject matter would be simple definition. Once a solid foundation is laid, then we can build upon it, and eventually address some of the broader issues.

    You mean like this:
