Why can I watch porn no problem, but get shy at scenes of affectional sex in movies?

Can philosophers help resolve the real problems that people have in their lives?

the cause of all problems is self-cherishing, which is both a realization and a teaching.
This is especially true when one teaches the Bible by cheri-picking the topics from it.

As a self-realization, did you, Walker, not pick your own cherry, before someone else also had the opportunity to pick yours? This seems to be the pattern for all humans' sex education of modern times in western (and likely, in eastern) societies. As well as in southern and northern societies.

Maybe this is what you meant by "problem" when you talked about self-realization and self-teaching in the self-cheri department.
A problem is anything you consider to be a problem.

For instance, what's your problem?
If you can name it, the cause of its existence as a problem, is self-cherishing.

I get your point now.

It is sort of a circular point; if something says something is a problem, then it can't be but a problem. A sort of self-fulfilling definition.

It actually applies to everything else, as well. It's your love if you say and feel it's your love. It's a toothache, as soon as you realize and perhaps verbalize it's a toothache. It's a good meal if you think it's a good meal. It's a world if you think of it as a world.

Yours is a philosophy. It is what it is.

What are its useful applications? I wonder.

This is quite a spectacle. The man who can't be understood meets the man who thinks he understands him.

Is 'affectional' sex the sex you have while in a confessional? It must be priest 'locker-room talk'.

Sounds like a time saver. You perform the confession and the sin simultaneously. I would imagine it takes some practice to maintain a steady voice while confessing.

I don't think a steady voice would be a requirement in this spiritual/physical experience. It's the thought alone that counts.

Spectacles abound freely in nature. "When the student is ready, the teacher appears. Also, when the teacher is ready, a student shows up for class. Education is a symbiotic relationship, when things only happen to mutually reacting agents when they are in sync."

Are you and Walker the same person?

No, we are not. But I'm convinced that you and a spineless person with no good upbringing, with a bad attitude, and with an unbecoming personality are the same person.
