Porn or a perversion is the Single Idea that both transcends and includes the double-bind on contradictory commandments, both of which can’t be obeys simultaneously. With the erotic or the perversion, you get to keep your cake and eat it too. One can be good and bad simultaneously.
When the mind says no and the body says yes; erotica or perversion is the middle way. When I was watching the movie Spotlight which was about the prevision of the priests I realized that this pervasion was a compulsion that allowed the priest to obey the contradictory commandments simultaneously: Commandment #1 was his vocation, God’s commandment. Be celibate; Commandment #2 was from his nature. Be sexual. One priest said in the movie that he had not sinned because he took no pleasure in the perversion. It reminded me of a Catholic girl who took it in the butt so the could obey the commandment to remain a virgin until marriage.
Where there are two commandments that we must obey, but cannot because they are contradictory, yet mutually dependent, this creates in intolerable tension. The only relief is violence or a creative idea that transcends but includes the opposite commandments. Having sex with young boys was the perverted way of resolving the dilemma. And the institution recognized this, so as an institution it was reluctant to remove the safely vale that kept their priest from blowing themselves up.
The compulsion (which is not a choice really) is created when caught on the horns of an existential dilemma: There must be ONE, but when given two commandments that must be obey, but they are contradictory—Try and be spontaneous—a resolution must be found, and what is found becomes a compulsion. Suicide is a one time compulsion; all over compulsion create a karmic pattern that must be repeated…until some external force stops you.
So….when the dilemma is resolved by the spontaneous rising of a Single Idea, then that idea becomes a compulsion, It is not a choice for sense pleasure. And the priest, I’m sure, sees the compulsion are God’s will because it restores unity to his existence and allows him to function in his vocation, except for these like energy generating side shows.
The Prevision then generates the energy of Unity when it is repeated, as it relives the mind/body civil war that exhausts psychic energy. The perversion changes the battery of those contorted by the double-binding commandments.
This is why people can’t stop compulsive habits, whether perverted or not. it is not a matter of choice, of free will. The Will had locked in a split will, unable to willfully obey the contradictory commandments that MUST be obeyed. So the Will find its unity and freedom in the Single Idea that transcends the opposite commandments, but included both of them so it gets to eat its cake and keep it.
How can the Will quit doing what makes it whole. It can’t return to the split will, which is an impossible situation. Let There Be One…is the commandment of Life itself, of the cosmos itself.
It guess the perversion of the One is the creative of removing the dilemma but with violent effects, which kicks the can down the road. . The Way out of the double-bind is going to be violent (suppressing one of the commandments or projecting it) or creative, the way that includes the contradiction.
Like a battery that holds positive and negative poles, the double-bind generates energy when held together in a Single Idea. Even the perverted Single Idea generates energy when. ritually reenacted. A compulsion becomes a ritual.
Did you see the FALL on Netflix. I just realized what this series was about. A serial killers has created a Single Idea to resolve the inconsistencies in his lower nature that becomes a ritual compulsion.
