men's creations

As we watch this world burn,  a simple truth, so hard to learn. When things go wrong, it’s hard to see. It’s not just you, but also me. I will burn this world to the ground, I will burn it all down. Some men find creation in destruction. Others just want to watch the world burn.  (x)

We all know this government would never acknowledge the first human birth in 18 years from a fugee. A wanted fugee. Why don’t we explain to Mr. Faron what they do to immigrants in this country?

Children of Men (2006), Dir. Alfonso Cuarón | DoP Emmanuel Lubezki 

THIS is what God Said to Each of The Zodiac Signs!

And it was morning as God stood before his twelve children and into each of them planted the seed of human life. One by one each child stepped forward to receive his appointed gift

To you Aries I give the seed first that you might have the honor of planting it. That for every seed you plant one million more will multiply in your hand. You will not have time to see the seed grow, for everything you plant creates more that must be planted. You will be the first to penetrate the soil of people’s minds with My Idea. But it is not your job to nourish the Idea, nor to question it. Your life is action, and the only action I ascribe to you is to begin making men aware of My Creation. For your good work I give you the virtue of Self-Esteem.

To you Taurus I give the power to build the seed into substance. Your job is a great one requiring patience, for you must finish all that has been started, or the seeds will be wasted to the wind. You are not to question nor change your mind in the middle, nor to depend on others for what I ask you to do. For this I give you the gift of Strength. Use it wisely.

To you Gemini I give the questions without the answers, so that you may bring to all an understanding of what people see around them. You will never know why people speak or listen, but in your quest for the answer you will find my gift of Knowledge.

To you Cancer I ascribe the task of teaching people about emotion. My Idea is for you to cause them laughter and tears so that all they see and think develops fullness from inside. For this I give you the gift of Family that your fullness may multiply.

To you Leo I give the job of displaying my Creation in all its brilliance to the world. But you must be careful of pride and always remember that it is My Creation, not yours. For if you forget this, people will scorn you. There is much joy in the job I give you if you but do it well. For this you are to have the gift of Honor.

To you Virgo I ask for an examination of all that humankind has done with my Creation. You are to scrutinize their ways sharply and remind them of their errors, so that through them my Creation may be perfected. For doing this I give you the gift of Purity of Thought.

To you Libra I give the mission of service, that humans will be mindful of their duties to others. That they may learn cooperation, as well as the ability to reflect on the other side of their actions. I will put you everywhere there is discord, and for your efforts I will give you the gift of Love.

To you Scorpio I give a very difficult task. You will have the ability to know the minds of the other people, but I do not permit you to speak about what you learn. Many times you will be pained by what you see, and in your pain you will turn away from Me and forget that it is not I, but the perversion of My Idea, that is causing your pain. You will see so much of humankind that you will come to know them as animals, and will wrestle so much with the animal instincts in yourself that you will lose your way; but when you finally come back to Me, Scorpio, I have for you the supreme gift of Purpose.

To Sagittarius I ask that you make people laugh, for amidst their misunderstanding of My Idea they become bitter. Through laughter you are to give people hope, and through hope trun their eyes back to Me. You will touch many lives if but for a moment, and you will know the restlessness in every life you touch. To you Sagittarius I give the gift of Infinite Abundance that you may spread wide enough to reach every corner of darkness and bring it Light.

To you Capricorn I ask the toil of your brow, that you might teach people to work. Your task is not an easy one, for you will feel all of humankind’s labors on your shoulders; but the yoke of your burdens contains the Responsibility of your Brothers and Sisters, which I put into your hands.

To you Aquarius give the concept of the future that people might see other possibilities. You will have the pain of loneliness, for I do not allow you to personalize My Love. But for turning people’s eyes to new possibilities I give the gift of Freedom that in your liberty you may continue to serve humankind wherever they need you.

To you Pisces I give the most difficult task of all. I ask you to collect all the world’s sorrows and return them to Me. Your tears are to be ultimately My Tears. The sorrow you will absorb is the effect of people’s misunderstanding of My Idea, but you are to give them compassion that they may try again. For this the most difficult task of all, I give you the greatest gift of all. You will be the only one of my twelve Children to understand Me. This gift of Understanding is for you, Pisces, for when you try to spread it to humankind they will not listen.

A painting of Nahui Quiyahuitl, Four Rain, which was the Third Sun or era. In this era, the Sun was ruled by Tlaloc, Teotl of rain. This was the Sun of Fire, and on a day Four Rain, the earth was destroyed by a rain of fire. The men of this creation who were not destroyed in fire were turned into turkeys, the ancient symbol of the nobility. Here, Tlaloc descends and destroys the Third Creation.

Una pintura de Nahui Quiyahuitl, Cuatro Lluvia, que fue el Tercer Sol o era. En esta era, el Sol fue gobernado por Tlaloc, Teotl de lluvia. Este fue el Sol de Fuego, y en un día Cuatro Lluvia, la tierra fue destruida por una lluvia de fuego. Los hombres de esta creación que no fueron destruidos en el fuego se convirtieron en pavos, el antiguo símbolo de la nobleza. Aquí, Tlaloc desciende y destruye la Tercera Creación.

captain america was created by jack kirby and joe simon, two jewish men. the creation of captain america was consciously political. in an environment where nazi sympathizers in the united states were mainstream and vocal, kirby and simon wanted to have their say, too, and encourage people to open their eyes to the moral crisis of allowing nazi germany to continue its actions. they received so many death threats and hate letters that they had to have police protection. we need to continue to remember this, especially in light of marvel’s current efforts to de-politicize at every turn while still reaping the benefits of kirby and simons’s inherently political creation, not to mention their downright erasure of jewish presence in their universe.

In the beginning there were 3 character classes.  Humans could pick any class, dwarves always were fighting-men limited to level 6, and hobbits were fighting-men up to level 4.  An elf could switch between fighting-man and magic-user between adventures, limited to level 4 and 8 respectively.  Or you could ignore all of that completely:

When Alexander declared that, “in spite of Miss Schuyler’s eyes,” he still had room in his heart “for the public” and for John Laurens, he envisaged that his love for his wife, his love for his male friend, and his love for the republic would work together in a triangular symbiosis, sustaining rather than competing with each other.

Originally she was smiling.

The apparent analogy of a seed being planted in furrowed soil to a male’s “planting” of semen in the vulva of a female led to the conclusion that men provide the seed of new life and women constitute the soil in which that seed grows. This metaphor is a central part of what was the most consequential and far-reaching mistake in human history: the idea that men are solely responsible for procreate… (it) continues to plague us today, centuries after we learned for sure that it is an error. The seed metaphor reversed the apparent positions of the sexes in regard to procreative power. What had always appeared to be principally female power was transformed into an entirely male power…men now claimed to be reproducers, while women were reduced from the seeming creators to the soil in which men’s creation grow: not to put too fine a point on it, women were equated with DIRT. Women were left with all the work of procreation, but men now took all the credit.
