Something Wonderful: "And I wished to live the life of the body forever...."

What a piece of work is a man!

How noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form, in moving, how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! -- Hamlet Act II. Scene II.

"Man" is the right word. Every potentially neck-breaking action in the video is done by a man. As a woman, it is quite clear to me that women simply do not do these kinds of things nor do we want to. Why? Obviously it is genetic.

I understand that life on this planet may have originated with spores from outer space. I suspect that a bodily memory of a planet with less gravity remains in the male half of the human race. That it is primarily males who explore space and primarily males who want to "levitate" supports this view. I think it's wonderful and I will be happy to accompany whatever man takes me to outer space.

Gloria, it's called "testosterone poisoning". And, we pay for it later in life. Boy, do we pay for it!
