The Nostalgia of the Sublime and the Radiant Materialism

Rihanna jellyfishBy Rosario Gómez (UOC)
It is common to see the fact that the media (MCO) are echoing the nostalgia of contemporary man for the suprasensitive and transcendent dimensions of life that religions once managed. Analyzing the sociocultural context of our time, we can affirm that this nostalgia is reflected not only in the cinema, but also in sports, art and advertising. We attended what I would describe, with a certain irony, as a phenomenon of "radiant materialism", since we are talking about commerce, mostly mediated by the light of the omnipresent screen that "illuminates" us.

Several authors agree that during this period, equality between the sexes is justified by several indications. The male was not aware of his participation in human reproduction to which a mysterious origin was attributed.

Neolithic times and settlements brought great changes in the destinies of humanity and once man's participation in the dynamics of reproduction was assumed, he began to impose his criteria.

Sexuality in Prehistory

By Rosario Gómez
In lower lines, I echo the discoveries that the Atapuerca Foundation has published about the so-called Sex of Stone and some considerations of the Doctor in philosophy Georges Feuerstein.
From the oldest sculptures such as the Venus of Willendorf, the representations of sexual relations of the Hindu temples of Suria and Kahjuraho, to the discovered murals of the ruins of Pompeii, which highlight an infinity of erotic scenes, from Giovanni Boccacio and Bernini to violence Sade's eroticism, human sexuality has continually been imposed, confronting the repressed sexual energy. In ancient societies multiple representations of explicit sex are appreciated, which far from causing shame and scandal, were signs of power and admiration. Already during the Paleolithic we find images of penises and vulvas strongly linked to fertility and procreation. Between the 9000 and the 7000 BC the first copulation represented: the stone of Ain Sakhri, found in the Judean desert.
