In the Sex 1.0 era, human sexuality operated on only one plane (or dimension if you prefer) defined by the word “natural”.
Like all of the other 8.7 million species of creatures occupying this beautiful planet, we lived in harmony with our sexual nature.
Then something happened.
Picture this. Visualise a single beermat or a drinks coaster on the table in front of you.
If you actually have one, place it to your left hand side. If you don’t, just imagine it there or just use something else. A glass, cup, saucer or whatever.
This represents a plane of human sexuality defined by the word “natural”. In Sex 1.0 this is all we had. This is all we needed.
Back then we operated, sexually, just like every other species on the planet. We just followed our sexual nature.
We shook nature by the hand, smiled and we went along with it. Sure, we competed, we even fought in times of scarcity but we were in tune with nature.
When we moved from Sex 1.0 to Sex 2.0 however a fundamental schism was created. A split whereby human sexually began to operate on two planes at the same time.
Now picture or place another beermat or drinks coaster, or what you are using, in front of you and to your right hand side.
This represents the newly introduced plane of human sexuality in Sex 2.0 defined by the word “normal”.
The Sex 2.0 Schism
So you so now you have one on your left and one on your right representing the two planes of human sexuality in a Sex 2.0 world. The one on the left is the “natural” sexual plane and the one on the right is the “normal” sexual plane.
The word ‘natural’ simply means “in accordance with nature” or “in agreement with nature”. It does not mean anything else. It is defined by nature alone and is and not defined by society.
Whereas the word “normal” is defined by society as, of course, you have the concept of the “societal norm” and it is not defined by nature.
This an important concept and worth repeating.
Natural = defined by nature and not by society
Normal = defined by society and not by nature
Under Sex 2.0, for the first time in human history, it became possible to have something that is completely 100% “normal” and is, at the same time, totally “un-natural” like hmmmmmm, let me think ….. like ….. marriage, for example.
Marriage is totally normal. It is also completely un-natural as human beings are not, by nature, monogamous whereas marriage requires you to be monogamous.
When there is widespread, worldwide adoption of a practice, it does not make it any more natural at all. It just makes it more normal.
Marriage is completely 100% normal and you will have likely grown up in a society your entire life where, not only is it normal, but it is expected of you under relationship duress.
The shift from Sex 1.0 to Sex 2.0 did not change the underlying “nature” of human sexuality at all. We did not suddenly change to become sexually monogamous. We were just expected to behave as such.
Nor did it change the physical act of sex at all.
It simply changed what society expected and insisted as acceptable sexual long term relationships.
This simple change however created this amazing shift between operating sexually in accordance with our nature, as every other species on the planet still does today, and not only going against our nature, but being obliged to go against our nature under relationship duress.
The split from operating on one sexual plane – natural – to two sexual planes at the same time – natural and normal – is the root cause of pretty much all of the confusion in modern human sexuality.
Once the “normal” sexual plane is introduced, something very interesting happened and something very interesting did not happen.
The interesting thing that happened is that, once the normal sexual plane is thrown out there, relationship duress was introduced to cajole, pressurise and otherwise oblige and force people to choose it.
The interesting thing that did not happen is that human sexual nature did not change. Not even one tiny little bit.
Contrary to the popular saying, repeating a lie often enough does not make it the truth.
