Acknowledging Simone (de Beauvoir)
For much of my life, I knew consciousness considered woman as the “Other”. In retrospect, we swim in great singularity.
Whose existence spawned duality?
By nature, duality necessitates conflict. At deep levels, duality births the “Other”.
Whose existence rests in conflict, in opposition to intention?
To oppose is duality’s mantra. Sarte realized that opposition to women would lead consciousness to oppose the earth mother, the eternal feminine. War rages against the “Other”, the Earth. The moneychangers monetize the Earth.
We are at that stage in the now. Do not be fooled. As her children, we all become suspect.
