The Phantom Prepuce Utopianism

Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein are among the most famous philosophers. They invented parallel abstract realms for the pragmatic common sense to marvel at. The modern cults that followed are as undisprovable and authoritarian as monotheistic religion because of the abstractedness of their subjects. In times long ago the abstract god and sexually suppressive simplistic moral of the Abrahamic religions inculcated into the common sense and prepared mentality for these teachings. As a result Marx’s historical materialism, Freud’s psychology and Einstein’s relativities have been easily assimilated into the modern culture. Inconspicuously, they have shaped the contemporary outlook on life.

The world’s most influential minds certainly owe no mean amount of their fame to circumcision. The sexually suppressive religious moral along with the mental effects of circumcision have subjected large masses of humanity including the above mentioned philosophers to sexual frustration and have rendered their minds restless, devoted and susceptible to abstractions. The long-term psychological effects of circumcision have trained both the public and the actors for the abstract play we all perform today.

Circumcision has had a great impact on the history of civilization due to its profound influence on the psyche. It facilitates abstract reasoning and has played a major role in the establishment and wide spreading of the abstract monotheistic religions that worship invisible gods as well as of the unrepresentative physics of the 20th century that reverences an omnipresent probability. The erogenous deficiency that circumcision causes has accentuated the sexual possessiveness and the acquisitiveness that have become stereotypic to circumcising groups. It also preconditioned both the invention and popularization of the historicism that idolizes material plenty and of the psychology that fetishizes sexuality. By all appearances the long-term mental consequences of circumcision have a significant contribution to the thriving of social and scientific utopias of the last centuries.

For millennia circumcision has greatly influenced religious, political and scientific philosophy. It psychological effects have supported the abstract monotheism of Abrahamic religions. The sexual frustration that circumcision causes harmonized with their anti-sex moral. The emotional insecurity stemming from the inability for full gratification stimulated god-fearing, piousness, timidity and reliance on authority. The sensual deficit ensuing from circumcision overdeveloped abstract reasoning and predisposed perception to an invisible almighty. The taste for abstraction that the sensual deficit prompts also habituated thinking to simplified bipolar logic. In the long run this unnecessarily polarized the moral and the value systems and increased religious and social intolerance. The mental effects of circumcision have rendered mentality restless, impatient, insatiable, greedy, intolerant and susceptible to utopias. The dependence and fearfulness fuelled by the emotional insecurity, the black-and-white moral and the impetuous utopianism are the main building blocks of authoritarian religions.

Circumcision causes emotional disaffection that reduces the tolerance to frustrations. It suppresses sexuality and individuality which its psychological compensations attempt to make up for and often overreact. In social perspective the mental effects of circumcision have aided the development of clannishness, moral stagnation, conservatism, possessiveness as well as of their antagonistic tendencies. In mixed societies, for instance, they have stimulated the advent of anti-Semitism. Thus by increasing both social suppression and personal intolerance to it circumcision has continually increased dissatisfaction and discontent, and has urged hasty reforms and revolutions in many spheres.

The effects of circumcision agitate emotions and kick against themselves. This struggle is fascinating but is completely useless. And it does not matter how tolerant or stimulating a needless turmoil is. No earlier than the effects of circumcision turn against their cause will society gain presence of mind and reforms become productive.

Since hoary antiquity the mental effects of circumcision have stirred up emotions and needlessly polarized attitudes. In the long-term, however, it has turned out that the pathos and generalizations that circumcision instigates are ineffective. The ideals born under the pressure of emotional dissatisfaction have turned out to be headlong simplifications. Now social and scientific revolutions inspired by the circumcision-enhanced emotions have proven to be rash and hollow idealizations.

For instance, Marxism assumes that the only obstacle to happiness is greed so restricting it by regulating production relations must resolve everything. Alluring with this unrealistic ideal it inclined to a bold jump into the future without regard of reality. This impatient idealization has а neurotic character and of course its practical results were disastrous. The discontent with poverty is resonant to the sexual dissatisfaction. It rendered people in undeveloped economics such as pre-revolutionary Russia or China well susceptible to the unrealistic promises of Marxism for quick improvement. The radical Marxist ideology turned out to be emotionally contagious to the poor.

With a similar breadth of vision Freudianism postulates that sex-drive is at the core of any problem and believes that its proper restriction can fix any psychological or civilizational crisis. This fetishizing of sexuality exhibits the symptoms of sexual frustration. A psychology standing on it by necessity has biased views on sexuality. The sex-driven psychology was actually invented by sexual frustration. It shows the relation of sexuality to crime but its view is one-sided. It sees that unrepressed sexuality can motivate crime but omits that physical suppression of sexuality is a crime in itself. It points to the criminogenic role of sexuality but is blind to the criminogenic role of circumcision and religious moral. It tends to extenuate the guilt of sex offenders and completely frees circumcision from guilt.

Desensitized thinkers and scientists unintentionally disseminate circumcision neuroses through their doctrines. Circumcised are unappreciative of the mental effects of the circumcision but persistently put them in action. The cerebral occupations to which neonatal circumcision disposes have yielded the sex-driven psychology and increased the quota and influence of circumcision neuroses in medicine. This has impeded the scientific recognition of the mental effect of circumcision and concealed the ethnic character of many sciences including psychology and medicine which are actually bound by duty to expose them.

Phantom Prepuce Utopianism

The Circumcision Complex tends to cause unreasonable development of abstract reasoning

The long-term psychological consequences of circumcision are still in full sway today. The compensations of the Circumcision Complex and circumcision neuroses can be found in a vast number of branches of abstract thought since ancient times until modernity. They inspire a variety of abstract doctrines. Especially potent in this seem to be the mental effects of neonatal circumcision. As a result besides religious fanaticism now we enjoy the full gamut of philosophical extremisms.

A boom of new theologies in the form of philosophical or political sciences has in recent centuries unfolded in democratic societies. It has filled the gaps left open in the religious discipline of Christianity. A dissatisfaction that is allowed to find its ways to satisfaction is the motive force of social progress. It stirs into action and helps overcome mental and social stagnation. However, a dissatisfaction that is induced by damaging the bodily ability to feel pleasure results in insatiable hungers and utopianisms. A dissatisfaction that is continually inflicted by physical deficiency is felt as a thorn in one’s flesh. The constant irritation overexcites. It needlessly inflames passions and obsesses with the desire for alleviation. It inclines to hasty conclusions, radical escapes and unrealistic immediate salvations. The chronic frustration tends to transform science into religion and the social scene into a corrida.

  1. The idea that circumcision furthers the ability to think abstractly is absurd, nor is there anything especially abstract about Freud, Marx or Einstein’s major theories and discoveries. This piece “Phantom prepuce utopianism” is illiterate and anti-Semitic. Circumcision limits pleasure, and in that respect is effective; it is not sucessful ultimately in disabling individual intelectual development; it is the primitive left;over of an attempt to dominate and control, the remnant of a sacrificial cult. It ought to be eliminated, a piece such as “Phantom prepuce utopianism” will only have the opposite effect.

    1. Any sensorial deprivation especially that which occurs during infancy inevitably fosters a guessing attitude which is in essence abstract reasoning. The simple reason for this is that the brain is plastic and replaces the missing information. The cortical reorganization following loss of sensorial input is a scientifically established fact. A section of our site is devoted to this.
    2. We agree that the theories of Marx, Freud and Einstein are major in the sense they are dominant and grandiose. But we consider them quite abstract, intuitive and dogmatic, and many will agree with this. With a few exceptions their discoveries are entirely speculative and impractical instead of factual and pragmatic. We substantiate our opinion on this in the “Modern Reincarnations of an abstract Deity” section.
    3. We have never claimed that circumcision “disables individual intellectual development” as you impute to us. We state that it stimulates imagination and alters mental disposition. If circumcision takes away something, for instance, exactitude or concreteness it gives intuition and inspiration in return. And there is nothing anti-Semitic in this statement because the Jewish holy writs assert approximately the same, namely, that circumcision refines man and makes him love god.
    So those who deny the mental effects of circumcision must be the true anti-Semites.
    4. What we insist on is that the mental effects of circumcision are scrutinized and brought to light. And our motivation is neither Semitic nor anti-Semitic. It is humanitarian. It is for the sake of objectivity and understanding. It will be better for all the unobvious effects of the practice to be exposed. Then they can be safely utilized without generating social tensions. And without introducing ethnic bias into science.
    As any other human activity religion, science and politics have ethnic components. We know from history that they lead to no good. Denying their existence is dangerous and antidemocratic. Denying them is also anti-Semitic as long as Jews live in democratic societies. We feel obliged to expose the ethnic modes in science and their relation to the practice of neonatal circumcision. And we try to be as impartial as possible.
    5. Perhaps, you imply that circumcision must be disconnected from religion in order for it to be discontinued without infringing the religious rights. But this separation is impossible because circumcision is a requirement of conservative religions. And circumcision is rightfully identified with them because it facilitates them.
    Physical limitation of pleasure inevitably alters the quality of mentality and that is why religion requires it. Not only rabies but ordinary Jews, Muslims and circumcised gentiles have the right to know this in order to be able to decide on it. Keeping this knowledge secret is anti-Semitic and antihuman.
    Circumcision is not simply a leftover that can be eradicated because it is a factor of ethnic identity. Abolishment of circumcision is secondary to its thorough understanding. The main factor that preserves the practice is keeping people misinformed and ignorant of its effects. Undoubtedly, Jewish individuals will be most favored by an abolishment of circumcision but they have to be aware of it first. Hopefully, we do not look Semitic to you now.
    Pragmatism and Idealism can cooperate with each other given that their potential is known. Otherwise they tend to displace each other using the political situation in order to get the upper hand. We are not against circumcision by itself but against concealing its effects. Of course, we denounce pedocircumcision as it is coercive. But it cannot be banned without narrowing religious freedom. However, once the actual effects of pedocircumcision are recognized it will soon die out naturally without infringing upon anyone’s rights, we hope.

    A STATEMENT TO THE EFFECT THAT THE WORK OF FREUD MARC AND EINSTEIN IS “we consider them quite abstract, intuitive and dogmatic,” IS ALSO UTTER NONSENSE. MOST OF FREUDS FUNDAMENTAL TENETS CAN ALSO BE PROVED MATERIALISTICALLY, FOR THOSE WHO UNDERSTAND MIND ONLY IN THAT FASHION, “It’s the economy, stupid” this little Clintonian refrain suffices to prove that we are all Marxists now, nothing abstruse about the fact that poverty impoverishes brain development… most of Marx subcategoris i.e. commodity fetishism, alienation, have become common place observations. What in god’s name is abstract about the “theory of relativity” , which has been proved, both specifically and in general?
    Sorry folks. we are in agreement on some deleterious consequences of circumcision, but you are accusing the procedure of so much that you make fools of yourselves. x michael roloff

    1. About the absurd
    Of course, the guessing attitude we talk about develops later in life. Here we discuss the long-term psychological effects of sensorial deprivation, and not the immediate ones due to trauma or pain caused by the operation. The development of the guessing attitude due to sensorial deprivation that you find absurd is not our invention at all. It is a scientifically established fact. Its mechanism is similar to the way blind people develop compensatory abilities.
    It is known that people lacking some sense may develop extraordinary abilities. It was believed that this is a result of the sharpening of the other senses. However, in the last decades this thesis has been experimentally disproved. Now it is known that compensatory abilities are result of brain reorganization, and not of a sharpened sensitivity of the intact organs of sense. For instance, the visual cortex in blind people is not idle. It operates in the same way as in seeing people and creates mental pictures of their surroundings. The brain of blind people creates images of reality using the information of the intact senses. Seeing is brain-generated, it is rather in the ability of the brain to form perception than in the eyes while the organs of sense are merely instruments of the visual brain that it uses to form mental images. When there is no proper instrument the brain uses the available substitute senses to create what it is designed to do.
    Daniel Kish: Blind Vision: “What really happens is in the brain. Seeing is in the brain. … The visual cortex sees. It wants to see. It is designed to see. It doesn’t much care what the inputs are.”
    Any perception is partly invented by the brain. But the invented part of perception is greater and the perception is more subjective in sensory deprived people due to imperfection of the substitute senses. Therefore, blind people have more general, less detailed or more abstract idea of their surroundings than seeing people. In other words, sensorial deficit fosters abstract reasoning. It takes much more time for the blind people to orient. Compared to the seeing people they are preoccupied with seeing. Therefore the abstract reasoning that sensorial deficit fosters is obsessive.
    Generally the same but to a smaller extent applies to the sensorial deficit caused by circumcision. Of course, the effect is much smaller and subtler because the erogenous sensitivity is neither of vital importance to immediate adjustments nor is it totally removed by circumcision. It is the subtlety of the mental effects of circumcision that empowers them and spreads them. They concern mainly spirituality. They affect the type of thinking, the attitudes to sexuality and security and only secondarily manifest themselves in practice. For that reason the long term-effects of pleasure deficit are most evident in historical trends, ethnic stereotypes and intellectual tradition.
    Foreskin cortex (that is considerably larger than you will find in most textbooks) actually functions as a pleasure cortex. It is designed to feel pleasure and it does so whatever the genital state is. When there is no foreskin (for a long time) the foreskin cortex constructs pleasure from the remaining erogenous sensitivity and from other senses. Non-pleasure information begins to feed the pleasure cortex and to bring satisfaction to those who are circumcised.
    Circumcised men have more general, less detailed or more abstract idea of sexual pleasure. They use more brain and emotional resources to satisfy their cravings. Compared to naturals they are preoccupied with achieving gratification. Circumcision fosters a type of pleasure-seeking abstract reasoning. Or it facilitates the formation of abstractions that gravitate towards sensual paradises or material plenty.
    2. Irrationality of Freud
    Jews are renowned for their intellectual and spiritual talents. Their special aptitude to non-productive spheres betrays a special ability for abstract thinking. Freud attributed the intellectual advance of Jews to their abstract god. Thinking about the invisible deity required intellectual effort, he deemed, and developed their imagination. But what their fascination with the impalpable god had been a result of he didn’t specify. Thus he took the surmising aptitude, the abstract mental attitudes of Jews as a causeless fact. Or as a dogma resembling the by-name Chosen people.
    But thanks to the advance of neurophysiology now we are able to understand the intellectual aptitudes of Jews are a result of the sensory deprivation caused by neonatal circumcision. In this way modern science can reconfirm the truth contained in the Jewish holy writs. Freud couldn’t do this because circumcision is the blind spot of his psychology.
    According to Freud the castration complex stems from inherited irrational fears deposited in the unconscious during the cruel ancient times. But a transfer of traits or attitudes through countless generations without a material carrier such as gene is unacceptable to modern science. No matter how logical the castration complex appears its base is irrational. And this, of course, makes Freudian theory conjectural and abstract. It is based on an insinuation, and is supported by a myth similarly to the Original Sin doctrine. Adam was disobedient and God punished him: since then all men have been sinners. Similarly Freud mythologizes that fathers were once cruel and castrated their sons (but not all of them) so today all of us fear castration. The Circumcision complex, however, rectifies this irrationality at a low price. It alters causality and changes the scope of the concepts of Freudian theory but gives it a rational physical base that is consistent with modern neurobiology. Those who admire Freud must be glad instead of irritated by the addition of a concrete, rational and pragmatic basis to his theory.
    Thinking a step ahead we may also say that the Circumcision complex reconciles the circumcising religions with natural rationalism. In this way, instead of stubbornly asserting their rights at any cost the circumcising religions could eventually cooperate with reason so as to limit or eradicate this practice.
