Mating is Nature’s way for sexual species to reproduce. For humans, mating has become mixed up with pleasure, emotion, relationships, social restrictions, religion, and laws. When mating, a merging occurs on physical, emotional and mental levels, and the effects are permanent. If we have thoughts, desires or imagination about others, it affects them. Souls that inhabit bodies are not created by the body or by the minds or souls of the parents. Everyone has a right to refuse to mate in a given situation, and to set conditions. Nature encourages monogamy. When procreation occurs, both parents have responsibility for the child. To heal the collective split between male and female, we need to value truth and virtue over ego, pride and possessiveness. By merging and separating, Creation is fulfilled.

The content of these presentations has been garnered through observation, contemplation, hopefully insight, and, most importantly, experience. Ideas and assertions are simply presented for consideration. The effort is not to prove or convince, but rather to present ideas for one’s own thought, research, innate common sense, and experience.
References are included only if information is specific and may not be generally known. No offense whatsoever is taken at any disagreement or counter-assertion. Many disagreements are due to semantics. Take whatever is useful and ignore the rest. If something fits and is useful, wonderful!

Deep gratitude is expressed to developers and everyone who has assisted in making open-source software available to all. These presentations have been made possible by LibreOffice (Open Office), Audacity, SimpleScreenRecorder, RecordMyDesktop, Glimpse, Gimp, Inkscape, ImageMagick, Pitivi, ffmpeg, OpenClipart, PublicDomainVectors, and Linux. Appreciation is also expressed to FreeThesaurus.com. In addition, gratitude is expressed to all the wonderful artists who have made their work available, for pictures speak to the soul. Gratitude is also expressed to people who have contributed comments that have helped to improve these presentations, and for the expert advice of Sweetwater, which made possible the quality of these recordings and the continued sanity of the editor.

The brilliant spectrum in the banner is the closest representation of the absolute joy of a realm of which I have memory since childhood. No one owns the spectrum. It is used here because of its joy.
In case it seems that it took a lot of work to create these multi-media presentations, it was negligible compared to acquiring the inner-standing required to write the content.
