MooPig Plato Department :: "Split-a-Parts"

Continue Searching, or, Doing Nothing

The following makes many assumptions. First it asks you to accept that there are gods, people, and animals all living to support each other in, on, and, around Earth. Then it assumes that you will accept that the gods tamper with people, because people are a rabble and need to be disciplined. Ouch! The animals, well, they get sacrificed.

Tampering with people turns out to be random, and based on whim of the gods. People also try to imitate the gods, while also trying to get to the gods in their "realms."

It would be nice if we had a photo of the gods and the people from 12,000 years ago, but pictures are now only reaching their apogees on the Internet, as pictures are digitally realized, copied, tampered with... culminating in a porn media outburst. You think porn is limited to naked sex videos? Think again...

Porn is defined as anything that tantalizes the emotions, or causes arousal. Today we have translations of what was said at Plato's symposium, which mirrors our current state of affairs. The internet is an explosion of porn at all levels. Volumes of opinions and facts tear away the disguises of modern life. However, 2350 years ago, one concept is the idea presented by Aristophanes, a story about soul mates. His theory makes people into sad, sorry, searching, split-apart humans.

The Internet is, some say, 60% porn. If the Internet is porn driven, and I agree it is, it will continue that way irregardless of who says what. But Plato held a Symposium back in the day -- symposiums are drinking parties; he had speakers step up, like Aristophanes, and explain the nature of things. The TED talks of 350 BC. The speeches were tantalizing.

" ... The first ever written reference to each person having a destined mate was given from the ancient Greek philosopher, Plato's [symposium]. His theory was that each human being is part of one soul, in which they only have half of. The idea is that the soul was “split-apart” and separated from each other– and the two halves would forever long for one another. When the two find each other, there would be an unspoken understanding of one another. ( LAURYN on December 16, 2013. LINK)

" ... According to Plato the man was so like this Apple, perfect. It was enough to Himself and was happy. There were no distinctions between men and women. There were only These individuals perfect and happy, Only That One day Zeus who was jealous of Their perfection ... ... and from on That Day, the man Began to desperately seek Their Own half alone Because it felt incomplete and unhappy. Just how many times did he could not ever find the ITS midpoint. And still does not, Because it is practically impossible to find half and Their Recognize it. It would take a miracle. ( Translated by Bing ) ."

Original TEXT -- Italian

Secondo Platone, l'uomo che una volta era così, come questa mela, perfetto. E 'stato sufficiente a se stesso ed era felice. Non c'erano distinzioni tra uomini e donne. C'erano solo questi individui perfetti e felici, solo che un giorno che Zeus era geloso della loro perfezione ... zac ... e da quel giorno l'uomo ha iniziato a cercare disperatamente propria metà campo solo perché si sentiva incompleto e infelice. Ma per quanti tentativi si riusciva mai a trovare la sua metà esatta. E ancora non rende, perché è praticamente impossibile da trovare e riconoscere la propria meta 'campo. Ci vorrebbe un miracolo.

But din my luck split
what I find me Missy Miss:
She took best care of us
I called her my Pony X-spress

We caught three trains
All the way to Milwaukee
Pony, she got real sick
In our boxcar trip
... couldn't walk it

One night
... couldn't hear her breathe
After she’d gone to sleep
Now I got
... too many promises
That I can’t keep

I got no money
No town is mine
Only this mouth harp
And I is blind

I will tell you this:
Every town I gwane tho’
I has a witness, ya’ know
Someone always there

Allus’ helps me around
One was my Pi’ony X-spress
Yep, one in every town ...
z'ares somm'ere a princess
I giv'in you a witness
... in every rapturous town
[from "Only Thing Left to Do..." by Pat Darnell]

While you dear reader air out these theories, you might look at the nature of media today. Media today pretty much just completes the Platonic era of boastful rhetoric, circa 350 BC. Is there really nothing new under the sun?

No wonder humans act like they are hard up. Split-apart from any factual state of being, we have to continue searching, or, doing nothing. Not much of a choice, is it?
