Transformation of Intellectualism
The transformation of intellectualism
can be seen in the dialogue of men and
women. There is less of the mind shared
than physical contact which is temporary
and results in self gratification for
one partner, rarely for both.
The natural ability to engage in physical contact
cannot and should not overwhelm the intellectual
contact that should be between men and women first.
Intellectual contact and stimulation lasts longer
than the sexual triumphs of one night stands,
booty calls, hit it and leave it, slap it up,
knock it up, drop it like it hot and leave it
for the next guy to hit.
Intellectualism between men and women has slowly
eroded to the point where both sides secretly
complain about a lacking of mental and
intellectual stimulation, when viewed at the
lifestyles of both men and women what
opportunities are shared that would encourage
a meeting of the minds, a exchange of cerebral
information that brings an orgasm of
psychological intellectualism that is equal
to the physical orgasm of sexual contact?
A mental orgasm will last longer than a physical
one. If you think not then think back on when
you had the best orgasm and with who, then think
back on when you had a great conversation that
moved you mentally, emotionally and even physically.
Which is easier to remember and has a lasting effect?
Maybe the solution is to turn off ESPN, turn
off House Wife’s, turn off the laptop, turn off
the Hip Hop station, turn off the Movie Channel,
HBO, Cinemax, etc. open up a book and read to
each other, share mental stimulation built on
dialogue not the busy insanity of television,
Reality shows that destroy true reality. What
kind of man or women would not want an intelligent
conversation with is wife, lover, friend, and
Men and women are loosing each other because
they are faster to grab the remote than they
are each others hands and have a “conversation.”
Parents are finding it harder to talk to each
other and “talk to their kids,” so the end
result is the imitation of television and
use of sarcasm, bullying words, cursing,
yelling, shouting and satire that they see
This is why people have a television mentality,
a television vocabulary, television sexuality
and a television humanity; Malcolm X.
No wonder children can call their parents
stupid, ignorant, dumb, and other slang
and disrespectful terms because they get
it from the TV, video games, rap music and from
their first source; their parents.
Why is it so hard to nourish your mind and
spirit, why is it easier to just watch the
“Idiot Box” and nourish the insanity of
programmed words, programmed laughter, and
programmed thinking? Sometimes we have to
look at our level of mental degree or
intelligence (Malcolm X) and check to see
if it is higher than the sitcoms we watch.
Do we have a television brain, do we embrace
a television intellect, have we resorted
to not challenging our minds, not exercising
As a father, teacher, blogger/writer I have
tried my best to encourage the intellectualism
of myself, my family, my children and my
students. We must let our children know they
are more than what they see on television, what
they see in video games, they are more than
what they see on a news broadcast, what they
hear on the radio, what they see in a rap
video or a comedy show.
What controls the brain controls the body,
where the mind goes, so goes a person’s
actions, behaviors, attitudes and emotions.
Look at how society is transforming; the
Transformers said it right, at one time
they were a race dedicated to peace and
exploration, but they let their technology
rule them. They became a race of conflicting
information, loosing their ability to judge
right from wrong and accepting anything as
morally and ethically right even if others
were hurt in the process. War became common,
hatred grew and after while no one remembers
how or when the destruction started.
When prayer was taken out of the schools,
religion was not removed, but the intellectual
fiber of rationality, the essence of morality
and the ethical ability to empathize and
relate to our fellow man. It was not the
religious aspect that was lost, but the meshing
of our intellectual abilities to rationalize
our personal relationship to know right from
wrong and the compassion that is based on
EVERY religion to treat each other with respect,
love, patience, and morality.
Our intellectual abilities are not based on a
television series, or a reality show, but our
abilities for men and women to communicate
on a common level of respect and understanding.
Society is loosing this connection and instead
of talking with each other we are yelling at
Listen to Malcolm X and his lecture on
intellectualism and communication for husband
and wives. Listen beyond the religious implications,
listen to the discussion about conversation and
intellectualism between husbands and wives.
This can be applied to any religion when a person
grows beyond their past. Get serious about learning,
get serious about sharing and embracing intellectualism,
do you love your spouse, partner, just for a sexual
gratification or are you yearning for
