Philosophy – “The Difference Between Beauty and Ugliness” – 2/8/2021

“To the preservation of what has been created, cannot be in sameness of enactment to preserving the deceased. We preserve memories, for flesh will eventually rot. Only through preservation upon living flesh, not its dead form, can beauty be something for protection’s sake.”

– Modern Romanticism

How then, can beauty be a thing of ugliness, if we do not create the latter? We cause the latter, in complete disregard for world’s beauty. It is a differing understanding between order and chaos. That, we can cause a person’s death, out of complete disregard for their life. We can murder the life, into death, because we did not protect it. Out of choice, comes the wish for death. Out of love, comes the heroism in preserving life.

Beauty is thus, on the side of life. Ugliness is thus, on the side of death. As well, beauty is on the side of order, as death is on the side of chaos.

One cannot create chaos, for it is not a creation on its own. Chaos is a causation, upon the creation of order. This is to say that death is impossible to “create”, meaning that only life falls into this category.

As well, it is impossible to “cause” the life to form. We cannot refer to the “cause”, without also referencing chaos. We reference “cause” to chaos, as life references creation. We create life. We cause death.

Beauty is not something of a cause. It is simply something so weak and frail to our eyes, yet to how beautiful we find it to be, we protect it. As a mother protects her child. As an organization will protect an endangered species. As a child will protect the small butterfly from the bully’s stomping foot. We do not wish to see such things turn from order to chaos, from life to death, from beauty to ugliness.

Excerpt – “To Define Protective Instincts” – 8/27/2020

“All love builds the unison that forms a collective of oneness, though only between individuals. It should be said that a person who wields ‘protective instincts’ for each breathing loved one, does so out of that oneness. Instinct relates to the choice of personal aid. Love, itself, voids reason, voids escape, of its responsible enactment. One is no coward in protection. To protect, is the same as destroying the threat to who one loves. As instinct relates to the selfishness of providing only for the self, then to protect a loved one would be the same. We protect out of instinct, due to that oneness of ourselves unified with who we love. For if we lose them, we lose ourselves.”

Quote – “Why Beauty Matters” – Pt. 3 – 8/11/2020

“What is beautiful in this world, is anything protected. Anything beautiful in this world, is everything fragile. For the same reason that a mother would protect her child, or the same reason that an organization protects an endangered speices, all things that have weaknesses are protected.”

– Modern Romanticism

Quote – “Why Love Originates War” – 7/27/2020

“If any human was allowed to wander into privacy without restriction, we’d not be conquerors. Such is never the case when a human will protect what should not be touched by alien hands. For it is not the offense, though the defense, that ignites the war.”

– Modern Romanticism

Quote – “The ‘Object’ of Beauty” – 7/23/2020

“Why would any woman state that she is an ‘object’ of beauty, when no object can be beautiful? It is a contradiction, in such a sense, when to be an object makes a person not a human. Just as the artwork is given life through not its perception, though in its identification to being recognizable as any destructible creation, it is the same.

To be beautiful, means to be recognized, identified, and compared as a human, to another. It means to be viewed just as vulnerable as the flesh of the next person. For if we are human, then we are a creation of an artist. We are truth, because truth is created. Truth cannot be broken down, unless it is a lie. Truth is exposed, like the vulnerability of the nude form.

Beauty has no armor to it. Beauty is always vulnerable and fragile. Then, to be weak, in this sense, means to be human, means to be alike, means to be of the same clay.”

– Modern Romanticism

Quote – “Why Beauty becomes Protected” – 6/15/2020

“We protect beauty as easily as we despise the sting of hurt feelings. We protect our inner selves, shielding ourselves with a mask of toughness. Though, for external protection, in the name of love, we protect because a lover has a need to be heroic. Love is what protects beauty. Love is all that protects beauty. As the mother will protect her child, or as the child will protect the small butterfly from the bully and his foot, love protects the gentlest, the frailest. We protect everything that is beautiful, because love does not want to see it wasted. If a woman is protected by a man, her lover, it is only because he loves her, finds her to be beautiful, and would be devastated were she to die. If a woman names herself to be beautiful, then she should know what beauty entails for all others who believe the same, of her. That, she will be protected, by others who do say the same.”

Poem – “A Dying Father on the Back of a Wounded Woman” – Romanticism – 5/18/2020

Who do you grieve for,
When the night has no stars?

When the ice of the silent universe
Encompasses the space in your mouth,
For whom do you scream?

He died
To your satisfaction.
He bled
For your wounds.

He left,
With the wetness of your appetite,
Still remaining to dine.

I once was trapped in the four walls of a womb,
As I am trapped in the four walls of a house.
Blood smears the walls as I can barely breathe,
Let alone see
What a monster you've turned yourself.

Do you love yourself?
You will not forgive yourself
Without the cunning for a million more matters
Used to silence me.

We are brittle beings
Needing protection.
As I am a petal
Offered a thorn.

Philosophy – “Why does a Man Desire to Protect a Woman?” – 2/16/2020

In olden times, a man protected a woman out of knowledge that if a woman is protected, then all of humans are protected. In today’s time, we are merely arrogant and comfortable enough to believe that each person can live like aristocrats, and not have a shred of worry. Therefore, because of this false belief in ease, we do not dare to think on what might happen, should all of this “comfort” come tumbling down.

Should it ever come tumbling down, we are back to barbaric and survivalist ways. We are, as well, back to protecting a woman and a child, from dangers that would result, if women were to be diseased, in the end of all Mankind. “Mankind” is a term that describes “what Man creates”, being His own kind, being a woman and a child. However, we’ve become, in recent times, arrogant enough to state that this should be changed to “humankind”, further expressing our obsession with comfort and ease. We deny it ever possible that we could recede back to a survivalist time.

Even among the “comfort” and the “ease”, there is enough arrogance displayed to state that a man needn’t protect a woman, any longer. However, despite the fact that we’ve merely changed the “color” of the jungle around us, turning a vine-hanging tree into a skyscraper, such an instinct to protect a woman, by a man, does not leave. In today’s time, we “force” the diverse set of things, and we force the diversity out of the same arrogance that we can “choose”, rather than be confined to our biological selves.

We have had Science-Fiction tales in the 1950’s and 1960’s about “human augmentation”, and even an entire movement titled “Beyond Human”. However, such a change would only do one thing, and that is, it would bury all of humanity down, further and further, though would not kill it. Our humanity would merely show up to surprise us, and whether such a stupid dream does exist to make us beyond our mere fleshly selves, we must possess a human trait. No human can be a pure machine, and we will learn by that knowledge, that humanity cannot die, nor be erased.

This is to relate to a man’s instinct, by knowing that those ancient things cannot simply be forgotten, or omitted from the mind of a man, by simply “changing” how society functions. One can only add a different color, though in the realest of realities, what will surprise us the most is that nothing has truly changed.

“Mankind” refers to Man who made a woman and a child. Then, if such is the case, what would a woman make? It is then correct to know that a woman makes a man’s strength, his courage, and his purpose in being loyal. For if a man cannot dig deep enough to find what is truly to be treasured, everyone will only focus on the surface as our shallow selves. We find, around us, in today’s time, many upon many people, focusing on the “change” of others. What that results in, is the endlessness “self-focus”, and never the bravery of trust, that, even if the trust is blind, would result in the wisdom gained from making a mistake. We loathe mistakes, further cling to our desire to be beyond human, vainly push our ancient instincts back under the soil, and the only thing we accomplish is making ourselves weaker and weaker. When a man cannot “reach” into what he knows is best for the world around him, we have what we have, in today’s world. One cannot deny that what we have, is an intolerance towards trust, a belief that one can stand alone, and an Atheistic mindset that says that “faith” only results in division, as the last example is indeed a contradiction.

A man protects a woman, because she is the one who makes him who he is. That instinct will not be erased. It is most likely as ancient as the universe and the stars, and most likely as old as love, itself. It is most likely as old as the universe, being the void of everything lost, and the chosen star among the stars, being the treasure that the universe would notice.
