  1. Also it's a bit naive to think that trade routes consist of someone sailing half way across the world. A more realistic model would be someone in South America trades with North Americans who trade with Greenland - who trade with Iceland - who trade with Ireland, who trade with Britain - who trade with Spain - who trade with North Africa - who trade with Egypt. Thus products find themselves half way across the world. Not saying this happened - just that its more believable.
  2. Its usually put down to contamination from Victorian Egyptologists.

    Used to be loads of immortals in the old days - but now the whole things died out.
  4. Obviously I would counsel patience with your partner. I do think this is something you'll have to sort out with her sooner or later - but it needs to be when she is ready. I know from personal experience how life changing having a baby can be - and the work/care involved can be overwhelming. Has she got mom/family nearby who can help out?
  5. Until you are a unified being (which is quite an advanced achievement) different parts of your organism will act/react to the world in different ways. Primal drives which are basically food and sex are indiscriminate - that is our snake or reptile brain/mind just wants to gratify itself and so whatever or whoever attracts it. This is normally inhibited by both social conditioning (civilising process) and more importantly our own heart, as we wish to be compassionate loving beings and also our ethics. So there's a kind of battle between our base energy and our 'higher' mind. Just lifting the lid off the lower mind is not good as it will lead to indiscriminate self indulgence but on the other hand repression will lead to psychological problems. You need to place yourself as the observer of the whole process and see it as an education about the true nature of your being. The lustful energy itself is neutral or more than that essential to life - but it gets locked into objects which it sees as potential gratification i.e. women - but actually what it really wants/needs is a kind of reflexion back onto itself. Hope this makes sense
  6. Has she consulted a doctor about this?

    You would miss me.
  8. May I ask - what does your partner think about this - is she happy about the no-sex and more so is she happy generally? Big hormone changes are a massive thing and can knock you for six.
  9. I agree - you can't get enough of ice cream.

    The thing is guys - every system I know of says that if you find someone annoying then keep them close and treat them as a teacher because that way you learn a lot very quickly.
