Food for thought

Avery Tooley talks about getting busy - not so much the act itself but the whys and wherefores behind it and why, as a friend of his once asked, Why is everything a means to an end? Why does everything have to get you some booty?

My gut reaction is that we do because we're wired that way. Our genes want to make sure they're around for another 20-40 years, so they push us into relationships and marriages and all that. Thing is, people are more than just the meat wrapped around the bones, and that extra something is looking for a connection too. The mind and the soul want a connection just as bad as the meat, and if all you're getting is the sensation in the meat, there's something missing. I'm not doing him justice - go read the whole thing.
