The most important thing I learn about life, in the last two years; that I never really know, before 2013, in terms of innate instinct and intuition; is the fact that humans have the ability to 'hear' the call of the wild and act on it; really no different than any other social animal.

The call of the wild is a really important instinct for social animals and truly basically it means connecting with nature, gaining subsistence, reproducing, and maintaining animal homeostasis and conserving energy at all times for maximum potential in gaining all of the above.

While many of us have an all we can eat assortment of sugars, fats, carbohydrates, proteins and plenty of water to drink out of the faucet and or plastic bottle; this is instant gratification, as a way of life, compared to the evolved human animal for periods of time without food, where challenge and adaptation to challenge in PHYSICAL ways is the name of the game for survival.

In my practice of Martial Arts/Ballet-like Dance Walk; now if I want to sneak up on; say a squirrel; to take a photo in my yard; I can do it at a speed slow enough like a cat in balance, not turning a leave (me at 230LBS) and make the picture before the squirrel scurries.

Before, my lumbering robot walk will scare the squirrel away, well before I get close enough for the photo shoot I want close up..:)

Interestingly, in studying wild animal behavior, as compared to World Noted, Asperger's Expert, Tony Atwood's 'Spot the Aspie' segment that he does in his lectures where he walks with his butt sticking out, and head tilted down toward the floor a few feet ahead; is well, yes, the way I walk before; to much ridicule by others, in life; discomfort even standing still; and truly having to copy my wife walking in total comfort or whomever else is with me in stores, before I turn 53, to even frigging be comfortable in my own skin, part of the way.

And truly this is a major source of human anxiety; NOT TO feel comfortable in one's own skin.

But the issue is, for me at least; is it an innate issue or an environmental issue, from all those gold star academic awards sitting still in lectures; being too timid to play team sports to get all around the field, and yes, after two years I can say with certainty now that other humans are amazed, in empirical terms by what they describe as excellent posture and graceful terrestrial like butterfly walk, where in a way I walk right out of a cocoon of discomfort fostered by a truly insane culture focusing on head thinking, rather than body thinking in feelings and emotions; at least in my case. Yes; Ha! some folks suggest I grow taller, who have not seen me for over a decade; but that's what good posture looks like; taller..:)

And oh, yeah; emotions everywhere, never controlled by me, and a dizzy boy who cannot walk straight with integrated senses before 2013; with mind and body balance now, through the actual practice of Dance Walking a martial arts/ ballet style for 3629 miles, in 21 months, in most all public area stores, by measure of Nike GPS sports watch; all that is under control with the practice of human relative free will; not unlike eastern philosophies that pursue martial arts as a way of life.

But here's the other thing and it is extremely important. The ancestry of human being encoded in our DNA for innate instinct and intuition is the necessity of defending ourselves from physical threats from human beings and other animals. Now of course, walking 'invisibly' helps to escape the predator of other animals; but that just will not work with the predator who is human, as humans stick together and are hard to escape.

So the choice in that is fight or flight. But the thing is, if one never develops skills to defend themselves physically; other than weapons, the only choice is flight, which is an anxious thingy by instinct that one lives with all the time around other folks, if they never learn now to defend themselves comfortable in their own skin, doing it, as well.

And then there is the instinct for reproduction, and for females it is not as strong after bonding for a family as far as sampling what's out there out of the 'cave'; but males, overall, are another story, and to repress that drive has consequences of natural penalties by nature, in ways of deficits in hormones, and strength to get that instinctual job done.

So what to do; play with it; and while that can be taken literally; that's not quite the full hormonal effect of being
around flesh and blood T & A. And it's truly amazing, as when I start going back to the dance clubs to dance, last spring; I am kinda, a little bit like 'Free Willy', before he escapes his water prison.

I am just not as virile, nearly as virile, as I used to be in my 20's, overall, and not just talking about sex; the whole
male package from head to toe in confidence, is more what I am speaking to here. And now after a year of dancing with all the young women; ALL THAT CHANGES, for me, now, big time..:)

But yeah, married and all, in my 30's, back then, now with me fixing to turn 55, there is just too much stress then, with work and all, to even worry about basic animal innate, instinctual, and intuitive call of the wild stuff.

Go to work, go home, watch TV, play a video game, go to bed, get up, for five days; get all the housework related subsistence gathering stuff done on the weekend, and then the rat race continues on for decades, in a maze of culture far removed from the call of the wild, as experienced before marriage, mortgages, and all the complicated stuff of life spent in a head of mechanical cognition; instead of much greater potential physical intelligence to basically be more undomesticated again in mind and body balance with emotions regulated, senses integrated, and much
better cognitive executive functioning by way of focus and short term working memory for REAL SUCCESS!..:)

What I am saying here, is; at least for human beings who go back to nature; even having the opportunity to hear the call of the wild, and act on it; is amazing human potential that can be gained, if one really listens to their inner free warrior and survivor, and makes life an imaginative and creative physical potential, instead of just stuck in a mechanical cognition mindset of work, and the rest of day to day life.

And the greatest thing of all about becoming proficient with a unique style of dance, is one does not have to go to the female dancers; they come on their own, as most all females love nothing better in the bar life than a man who can shake his groove thing. Over 200 photos documented in my blogs tell the tale on that with smiling ear to ear women, with me and the muse of dance I bring.

Now to be clear; not every middle aged guy is cut out to do this stuff; including the leg pressing 930LB thingy with my arms raised in the air slowly and surely on a parallel leg press machine; BUT, FOR all practical intents and purposes, as the last kid picked on sports teams, even behind girls in school; I do not seem to be cut out for it either.

But here is where the real KICKER (930LBS OR SO), comes into play. Epigenetic potential through challenge and adaptation to created environmental challenge is what makes most all this stuff possible for me.

I show photos of me as a teenager here, and I am much more of a weak looking teenager, than most of what I see in the photos of males here.

A major issue on this Internet site freely discussed here is disdain for alpha males; and the sadness that comes with being a weaker male, in terms of reproductive success, acceptance, and success in the work place.

Trust me after being the human archetype

of omega male and alpha male;

Alpha male is much more fun.

And yeah, even in the wild; the omega male can adapt and does move
to the top, as well, with proper physical intelligence challenges.

So what this means is; fuller success in life, in what really
counts; and don't 'fool oneself'; I've been around the block
too many times to fool myself, to Know I am just another
male social animal; with all the potential pitfalls
and successes that comes with that; physical
challenge, adaptation, and growing stronger
in success of male social animal
or moving down the
totem pole
of
the call
of the wild
IS a Real Deal.

Being wild and being able to control it,
to keep a wife, and all of that
through human relative
free will, is the
secret
to what I can
do, epigenetically speaking;
that I have evidenced on this
site time and time again; just to
let other folks know, they do not
have to spend life with their 'tales'
between their legs, shuffling along
in robot walk, looking at the floor
instead of standing tall, with head
faced forward, ready to meet,
any instinctual challenge that
comes in terms of physical
defense, whether or not
it really comes or not;
and I will tell you
this; if you get a
'leg up' on it early;
the way folks are
becoming softer and
softer; YOU WILL have
a huge advantage over
others in success in life.
Nature rules humans; there
is no fooling Mother Nature;
but there are ways to make
'her' work to YOUR ADVANTAGE.

IT'S KINDA LIKE THE VIDEO BELOW;

'Apes Together STRONG'



LIKE Inventor says; I am
no longer a 'hairless
ground ape'; I move
WITH THE CALL OF
THE WILD that
truly is
the
'VOICE' OF
GOD
INSIDE
ME..:)

Truly; not
unlike that
half wolf and
domesticated
dog in the book by Jack
London of the same name.

And yeah, that book brings tears
to my eyes, as a youth reading it;
but truly the tears then
are for me;
as clearly
recognizing
that now;
as just
another
SOCIAL
ANIMAL ON
GOD'S GREAT
GREEN AND
BLUE EARTH;
THAT IS
inseparable
from
God as
Nature
and 'US',
when wild
and
free....

And yeah, there's a theme song
for that, too; smiles, and
again; Apes
Together
STRONG..:)

That's where I live in Florida; assuming you are speaking about the 'Wild One' video.

But yes, it is lower down; however, the Sugar White Beaches and Emerald
Green Gulf still beats the Everglades/Miami; hands down; smiles.

Interestingly, if you ever see the movie Contact;
which I will provide the relevant clip below;

The "Paradise" at the end of the movie
is identified as a holographic
model of Pensacola Beach.

Carl Sagan inspires the
movie; and the bottom
line is the human
connection is
the meaning
of it all that
makes life worth living;

When I am ill and watch
the clip; i no longer feel
THAT and recognize how
lost I am; easily then;
All back now; plus TG!

And yes; on a moonlit
night with diatoms
shining in the
gulflit night;
swimming
with a beautiful
naked girl in ages
of Youth; and wife
to come; there is
NO PARADISE LIKE
Navarre Beach, a
little to the
East; settled
by my family
elders; early 1900's.

The beautiful girl is
my second cousin;
my wife comes later;
for full disclosure;
I have nothing
to hide; why;
Paradise is
always
now
for me..;)

I am not sure what I do to deserve it;
but never the less; it is an irrefutable
FACT..SMILES..REALLY.. BIG SMILES..:)

P.S.; My second cousin becomes a
'Stripper' too; in that regard;
I am a very late
BLOOMER!..;)

And to be clear;

Yes; 'our' 'relativeness'
is all Platonic; but
never the less;
she does have
a gorgeous
body;
definitely,
worth looking
at; but nothing
compared to the
wife who comes later; Katrina.

Honestly though; considering
all of this; it should not be too
surprising I equate GOD with
Nature; the evidence of IT IS
OVERWHELMING IN MY LIFE;
Well beyond refute for me,

at
least..:)

The 'Contact' clip below,
does not come close
to serving the
Paradise
where I
live;
JUSTICE..:)

There are more
variables involved
for me; many more;
No surprise tHere; huh..;)

That the best technology and smarts available cannot "spontaneously" produce any of organic life's chemical necessities is some kind of vindication of the supposition that mere random accident can...???

It would take much more than a merely excited imagination to claim that a big chunk of gooey black tar and the tiniest amounts of the simplest amino acids represents a "primordial soup". That the goo required a cleverly contrived apparatus to produce it wouldn't matter at all to anyone not constrained by reality.

For once David I tend to agree with you as do many origin of life scientists. There are many, many issues with the primordial soup hypothesis that tend to suggest it is not how life started. What is looking far more likely are deep thermal vents, and even life forming inside minerals. Deep thermal vents have much going for them as they remove many of the obstacles thrown up by the conditions on the surface of the earth at the time. But no doubt, in your grand wisdom you are going to say this is all nonsense nonscience, thought up by the religion of materialism yada yada yada.

Thing is David your intransigence regarding life only originating via a supernatural creator, teaches us nothing about what the reality might actually be. Sure you could be right, but so far creationists (although they deludedly refuse to admit it) have been proven wrong time and time again.

I do however have an interest in the thread title, one that goes beyond your simplistic agenda. And I am grappling with what does actually constitute life. One Author I have read suggests we all over simplify it, as in, "its something that replicates", "or something that metabolises", or "has a cell" etc. He sees it as a long, gradual, transition from organic chemistry to biology and there might not be an actual defining point.

Yes. The cellular definition of life has worked so well for so long that it's hard to conceptualize anything other than it. Viruses put a real challenge to that. If you declare them to be alive, there are counterarguments to why they aren't -no metabolism whatsoever. If you declare them not alive, there are again counter arguments. They have genetic material and they attach to cells and inject that genetic material. That this injection happens mechanically rather than through any actual action on their part just adds to the confusion.

I like batch the most; as a b***h or a botch, can make the beach so pleasing after experiencing THAT..:)

Truly that's the meaning of life; appreciating the whole dam batch; light, dark, and all the hues and shades and colors of 50 trillion or more; shades of grey...:)

Life is '50 shades of Grey'.

And yes, there is more

to that movie,

than 'grey'; as well..:)

There's 'Christian Grey'..;)

and much, much more..:)
