(The Complete Karmasutra)
The Karmasutra is an ancient Indian text written in Sanskrit in the seventh century B.C. It is part of a trilogy of work concerning the aims of life: the Kama Shastra (original name), Artha Shastra and the Dharma Shastra. The following quote illustrates the ancient Indians' understanding of the three necessities or aims of life;
Life necessitates three kinds of activity: to assure its survival, its means of existence, and its nourishment; to realise its reproduction according to forms of activity generally connected with sexuality; and, lastly, to establish rules of behaviour that allow different individuals to perform their roles within the framework of the species. In human society, this is represented as three necessities, three aims of life: material goods (artha) assure survival; erotic practice (kama) assures the transmission of life; and rules of behaviour, a moral nature (dharma), assure the cohesion and duration of the species. (The Complete Karmasutra, translated by Alain Danielou, Parker Street Press 1994)
The Karmasutra is the study of erotic practice (kama). The erotic practice is not confined to sexual positions but encourages exploration of power, intimacy, creativity, attention to detail (of senses, mood, atmosphere, clothing, timing, music) between loving couples. As confirmed by Alain Danielou; The Kamasutra is not a pornographic work. First and foremost, it is a picture of the art of living for the civilised and refined citizen, completing in the sphere of love, eroticism and the pleasures of life. (The Complete Karmasutra, 1994)
Although the Karmasutra was written many centuries ago, many couples today could benefit from selected reading and practices of the Karmasutra. Many believe that a couple has no need to learn the erotic arts, and that nature will teach them everything. Those who believe that, on reaching middle age, become unhappy and desperate. Often they lose trust in one another. (The Complete Karmasutra, 1994)
The modern western world is a busy stressful place. It takes time and effort to cultivate a beautiful, sensual environment and sense of self. Many people (particularly women) do not have the fulfilling sexual relationship they desire. The Karmasutra, known as the Art or Book of Love, is a guide towards deeper intimacy within, with other people and the universe. With intimacy comes less inhibitions, freedom and sharing of power.
While not always relevant or politically correct, the Karmasutra is most often amusing and enlightening. According to the Karmasutra, males and females fit into three different categories due to the size and depth of their genitals. These are Shash (rabbit), Vrish (bull) and Ashva (horse) for the males and Mrigi (doe), Badava (cow) and Hastini (she-elephant) for the females.
Interestingly, the Karmasutra scriptures forbid the practice of oral sex. During intercourse the mouth of a woman is seen as an extremely holy and sacred place. 'No penis in the mouth!' (Na mukhe meheta). One is defiled by the contact of sex with the face. It is contrary to sound morals and is not a civilised practice. (Vatsyayana, The Complete Karmasutra, 1994).
The different techniques for fellatio and cunnilingus in
the Karmasutra are to be used by eunuchs (those that are disguised as males,
and those that are disguised as females).
And now, fired by passion, she takes your penis deep into her mouth pulling upon it and sucking as vigorously as though she were stripping clean a mango-stone: this is Amrachushita (Sucking a Mango) (Karmasutra, translation by Indra Sinha)

Physics (and thus all human knowledge) evolved from Newton's concepts of particles and forces in Space and Time, which assumes the existence of four separate things. This causes many problems for Humanity because the necessary connection between these things is unknown. Einstein failed to solve this with his unified field theory of matter which describes reality in terms of matter-energy (fields) in space-time. The Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) solves these problems by describing Reality in terms of One thing, Space, existing with the Properties of a Wave Medium. Matter is formed from Spherical Standing Waves in Space which cause the 'particle' effect at their Wave Center. Time is due to the Wave Motion (activity) of Space. Forces / fields are caused by the interaction of the Spherical In and Out Waves with other matter in Space which changes the wave velocity and thus location of the Wave-Center (and which we 'see' as a 'force accelerating a particle').

Geoff and Karene
(George Berkeley, 1710) Nothing seems of more importance, towards erecting a firm system of sound and real knowledge, which may be proof against the assaults of skepticism, than to lay the beginning in a distinct explication of what is meant by thing, reality, existence: for in vain shall we dispute concerning the real existence of things, or pretend to any knowledge thereof, so long as we have not fixed the meaning of those words.
