I am not a proper archaeologist nor an anthropologist nor an ethnologist. I am no "scholar" of any sort. But I am very grateful to scholars for their sound work. I have found hints, suggestions for what I say here in all kinds of scholarly books, from the Yoga and Plato and St. John the Evangel and the early Greek philosophers like Herakleitos down to Fraser and his ...more

This was a curious book; a strange mixture of faux-science, spirituality, nature-worship, and the sexist "separation of spheres/male-female natures" fairly typical of the day. Its chief value is obviously in providing an interesting window into Lawrence's opinions of life, the universe, and everything, which are as far-flung as they are extensive.

Much of the sensibilities in this book are dated, especially in regards to gender identity and roles, but still, Lawrence's writing and enthusiasm is lively and engaging. His brilliant mind and skills as an essayist and philosopher shine through, and his analogies are always thought provoking. The mores of the time however did make me wince on more than one occasion. But, if you approach it from the mindset of it being a period piece representing the thoughts of a bygone era, there is much to ...more

“On revient toujours a son premier amour." It sounds like a cynicism to-day. As if we really meant: "On ne revient jamais a son premier amour." But as a matter of fact, a man never leaves his first love, once the love is established. He may leave his first attempt at love. Once a man establishes a full dynamic communication at the deeper and higher centers, with a woman, this can never be broken. But sex in the head breaks down, and half circuits break down. Once the full circuit is established, however, this can never break.” 9 likes
