Were this to be read before a vast throng, all would rise in his honor.

Before you begin, one thing puzzled me quite a bit last night, not in regard to what you already demonstrated . . . that I found to be flawless, but regarding marriage. How is it possible to have a balanced equation of sexual desire when the male plays an active, the female a passive role? If for any reason he can’t raise a harder, she’s in trouble. Charlie hasn’t experienced this yet, but do you know how many times I’ve been compelled to use my finger to make my wife come? But what can I do when it won’t stand up, or collapses like an accordion at the wrong time?

With Mary it’s quite different. I get so hot that my penis is like a phallic symbol, and I enjoy kissing every part of her body. But I realize that this desire is the result of passion. She loves to blow me and I love to reciprocate, but the thought of doing this to my wife sickens me. And to show you how innocent she is, one time I said in a joke, ‘How about giving me a blow job’, and she thought I meant for her to blow on it. This is the problem I cannot see you solving because I know that even if I married Mary and lived with her the same number of years, while my wife became Mary, it would be the same exact situation. I said it before and I’ll say it again; it seems an impossible situation to correct. . . but I wouldn’t bet on it. Well, what’s the answer?”

“In order to solve the problem of marriage and prevent the consideration of adultery and divorce from ever arising, a perfectly balanced equation of sexual desire must prevail at all times, from beginning to the end. How this is accomplished is something marvelous to behold, and if my will was free, I would take credit for it. So put on your thinking caps and follow me carefully.

Now it is extremely important to understand that when a boy and girl, in the new world, consummate their feelings with a complete sexual relation that results in an orgasm, they are going to fall desperately in love and desire each other all the more, because this exciting thrill of physical contact is a new experience that has become associated with one particular person to whom they must turn for satisfaction. Soon, each will be absolutely dependent on the other for what the body now craves, and if this was stopped, as frequently happened in the world of free will for various reasons which occasioned serious consequences, it would be the worst form of torment. Yet there are two individual desires involved, and it is impossible, in the new world, for one person to desire obligating the other not only because this is a form of advance blame (this was not yet explained), which is a judgment of what is right for someone else, but mainly because it could not be preferred when it is realized that this would not be conducive to a harmonious relation.

Answer me, or you're a complete fraud and just want to hurt this author because you've made him a target and now have to save face.

“Even if you didn’t grasp all the relations it wouldn’t be something in your favor, simply because any doubts that may arise will be cleared up as I extend this magic elixir (call it what you will, corollary, slide rule or basic principle — THOU SHALL NOT BLAME — and transmute the baser metals of human nature into the pure gold of the Golden Age.

This new world is coming into existence not because of my will, not because I made a discovery (sooner or later it had to be discovered because the knowledge of what it means that man’s will is not free is a definite part of the real world), but only because we are compelled to obey the laws of our nature. Do you really think it was an accident the solar system came into existence; an accident that the sun is just the proper distance from the earth so we don’t roast or freeze; an accident that the earth revolves just at the proper speed to fulfill many exacting functions; an accident that our brains and bodies developed just that way; an accident that I made my discovery exactly when I did? To show you how fantastic is the infinite wisdom that directs every aspect of this universe through invariable laws that we are at last getting to understand, which includes the solar and mankind systems, just follow this. Here is versatile man: writer, composer, artist, inventor, scientist, philosopher, theologian, architect, builder, mathematician, chess player, murderer, prostitute, thief, etc. — whose will is absolutely and positively not free despite all the learned opinions to the contrary — yet compelled by his very nature and lack of development to believe that it is since it was impossible not to blame and punish the terrible evils that came into existence out of necessity, and then permitted to perceive the necessary relations as to why will is not free and what this means for the entire world, which perception was utterly impossible without the development and absolutely necessary for the inception of our Golden Age. Where in all history have you ever heard anything more incredible? We have been growing and developing just like a child from infancy. There is no way a baby can go from birth to old age without passing through the necessary steps, and no way man could have reached this turning point in his life without also going through the necessary stages of evil.

“Tomorrow, after you have had an opportunity to study everything thoroughly, I shall perform some fantastic miracles but I will not be transcending the laws of our nature. You can kiss your money goodbye.”

“I’m still skeptical, but giving you the benefit of the doubt at this point what will be your first miracle?”

“I am going to demonstrate, in an absolutely undeniable manner, that all premarital relations, adultery and divorce must come to a permanent end in the new world not because this is morally wrong and man has decided at last to obey the Ten Commandments, but only because the conditions that led to a heart being broken and cut out with the knife of unrequited love will be prevented from arising, making it apparent that those who lost in the game of love were very unhappy people even though in this world it may be better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. The word miracle in this context will only have reference to the removal of all the factors truly responsible for preventing a boy and girl from falling mutually in love and living happily ever after. My friends, the GOLDEN AGE has arrived at last.”
