The urges and power instead of love
If something important is missing, the body gives an unconscious, strong impulse to cover this lack. In this way, the drives are also activated via needs, which then become desires.
The sex drive, formerly an animal instinct for the preservation of the species.
Accordingly, the human sexual drive has developed from the former animal instinct to preserve the species, which had the goal of ensuring the continuity of a community. Where, however, the naked drive prevails in humans, who are endowed with a consciousness, sexuality degenerates into a means of power.
Sex as a means of power
This applies to both men and women. On the one hand, women exercise power over men by appealing to their sexual drive. On the other hand, men use their physical and financial superiority to oppress women and consume sexuality.
The power instinct, the formerly animal instinct of self-preservation
The ego, the identity of power and dominance
The instinct of self-preservation has become the ego. It has seized consciousness and wants more and more power, for it is boundlessly greedy and seizes everything it can. Where power rules, love dies.
The Drama of Humanity: Power, Sex and the Death of Love
Thus the dying of love and the abuse of sexuality is the great drama of humanity. This was already reported in the earliest traditions, whose images and contents have been incorporated into the Judeo-Christian tradition. Legends and fairy tales also revolve around these themes.
For love is ultimately the strongest force in the universe. It alone can unite the most extreme opposites and create new reality from them.
