Lack of happiness receptors catapults into paradise
Circumcision causes an erogenous deficit. It invokes the sense of pleasure shortage. It produces spiritual hunger and compels actions aiming at satisfaction. Sensorial deprivation prompts peeping beyond sensory limits. Circumcision forcefully sublimates the sexual impulse or spiritualizes animal drives. Its power to facilitate development of guessing attitude and piousness is much stronger than purely intellectual quests that are not driven by physical and sexual imperatives.
The sense of loss infers existence. The feeling of insufficiency surmises future supply, a possible completion after some delay. And the sense of shortage involves pleasure which only adds urgency. The feeling of suspended pleasure builds up expectations of its resumption. The urge of the circumcised to seek fulfilment in excess is as normal as is the great interest of amputees in obtaining prosthesis.
Pedocircumcision renders idle the foreskin area in the somatosensory cortex that is eventually utilized by neighbouring areas. The missing sensitivity fills the existing one with desires. Longing mixes with realization. The unattainable superimposes the attainable. The world of dreams and reality overlap into one in the perception of the pedocircumcised. The cortical reorganisation following circumcision mixes the feeling of interrupted joy with the promise of its continuation. As a consequence wishes become fulfilled in imagination. Gradually, what’s desired becomes subjective reality.
Those who were circumcised as infants have potential to develop the profoundest psychological compensations and to undergo the most substantial cortical reorganization. They vaguely feel that the complete sensual gratification is elusive. Like a mirage, the idea of satisfaction exists in the mind but is too blurred to see what it contains. Satisfaction has motivational power but in the case of pedocircumcision its essence is elusive and indefinite. The fact that Jews practiced polygyny prior to their being forced to abolish it in Europe during the 11th century shows that their abstract reasoning wasn’t completely disconnected from sexuality and sexual possessiveness. The sexual obsessions of Jewish leading psychologists artists attest the same.
Those who were circumcised as boys have a modest potential to cortical reorganization. Their faith is less abstract, more related to sexuality. Their paradise must contain more concrete sexual lures. Their faith is more combative as their interests are more tangible and more personal. The parallel world of pleasure that their later desensitisation requires is more lifelike and experience-like. Their dreamland is decorated with more realistic sexual scenes. Muslim paradise exemplifies this well. The age at which pedocircumcision is performed seems proportional to the erogenous contents of the paradise that is waiting for the circumcised men.
Religiousness of pedocircumcised proves they are sane
As strivings penetrate the rational mind awareness becomes a dreamland. The state of maximal pleasure that men are biologically prepared to experience is unachievable to pedocircumcised because they lack the needed receptors. Deeply, those who were circumcised as minors feel as if the earthly bliss is refused to them. They feel as if they are expelled from the Garden of Eden. The pleasure deprivation caused by pedocircumcision with the help of the brain’s plasticity inspires spiritual quests.
Circumcision renders the completeness of satisfaction abstract and invokes the feeling of the existence of a parallel reality of full gratification. Without this subconscious conjecture senses must be felt to not make sense. Believing in what one feels is normal and wise. The circumcision-induced divination proves that those who were circumcised as minors are sensible and neurologically normal. The religiousness of the pedocircumcised attests that they are sane. Religion is the rationality of those who are pedocircumcised.
Dissatisfaction creates subconscious expectations of possible completion in the future. The inability for the gratification to be complete in the here and now suggests that another world where this takes place exists. And the happier realm is substantiated in perception due to the plasticity of the brain. It is up to a belief system to utilize it.
The idea of a more contented afterlife inevitably materializes in the minds of those who are chronically dissatisfied. It is deficiency that pledges abundance. It is the feeling of captivity that shapes the idea of freedom. Paradise is like the happy hunting ground to those who are half-staving. It is not made by dreams but by unhappiness and deprivation. Paradise is not a place for idealists but for materialists.
People hoard out of deficit. The tears in their eyes urge them to prepare for an endless succession of rainy days. And the operation that removes receptors of happiness must be especially helpful to systems of belief that promise eternal bliss. Paradise seems to be built on frustration. Paradise is the place where desensitized people are emotionally imprisoned by necessity. Like the communist ideal is prison for the poor paradise is prison for the dissatisfied souls.
The Circumcision complex is a natural neuropsychological reaction to the removal of erogenous sensitivity. The nervous system of the pedocircumcised is robbed of important pleasure-producing receptors. Their preoccupation with pleasure expectations and belief in the invisible realities where they are realized may be considered normal to their psychosomatic state.
It is a neurophysiological law that makes the forbidden fruit tastier. It is the lack of imagination and the lack of free will that conceive paradise.
