The Heart Symbol : Rare Facts


The heart has long been used as the symbol of  love and passion. 14th February, the Valentine’s Day, sees millions of cards, letters, balloons etc., with the spectacular red colored heart symbol. There maybe millions of ways to impress your partner but this simple red curve can beat any symbol of  love.  But ever wondered what the heart-symbol actually means? Or how the symbol originated? Well don’t get too surprised but the truth is in this post.

First of all we all know it is nowhere near the shape of the real heart, which has a ugly fist shape. Then we think why would the ancestors think about such an organ of our body which we never see in our lifetime.  So the best option available is that the symbol of heart represents a stylisation of the vagina or the inverted head of a male penis.

A perfect heart?

   

Inverted Penis

Yes, the heart symbol seems to have first represented lust before it became associated with love.  One thing that lays the base of this weird theory is the myth about the silphium drug, an ancient contraceptive. There are reports that its seed was perfectly heart shaped. The plant was considered so important during the Roman Empire that it was imprinted on the coins. The plant was ‘used up’ to extinction. Another fact that shoots up the importance of this theory, Silphium has similarities to the word Sylph – meaning slender and desirable young woman – a virgin.

Silphium Coin

Now the question, how come the word ‘heart’ got associated it with the symbol. For that we have a brittle explanation. Like the word heartwood is linked with the inner part of a tree, same way there are citations that ‘heart’ could mean ‘virginity’ in older times. Another example that proves the fact is the symbol of the cupid, a heart “pierced” by an arrow with tiny droplets of blood. The droplets of blood represent the breaking of the hymen and the loss of virginity. The arrow is also the definitive phallic component of the Male symbol – Mars – the erect arrow.  In plain language it is a vagina penetrated by a penis.

So, this theory is yet standing on wooden sticks, but it has some truth behind it. So next time you send a heart symbol to your lover remember you are giving an invitation for an intercourse! We’ll leave you with this quote while you think about this :-

“Love is just a system for getting someone to call you darling after sex” Julian Barnes

Oh me! Oh Life! by Walt Whitman


Oh me! O life! of the questions of these recurring,
Of the endless traines of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the
foolish,
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish
than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the
struggle ever renew’d
Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I
see around me,
Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me
intertwined,
The question, O me! so sad, recurring–What good amid these,
O me, O life?
Answer.
That you are here–that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.



By-Walt Whitman

Baseless Dreams


“One fine day my son will be the king”,

smiled the beggar as she kissed her little one,

and the big dreamy eyes of the child,

saw himself as the owner of the throne.

“Baseless dreams”,

said the old man pointing his stick,

laughing and crying at the same time,

“Child,be the king before I become too sick”

these baseless dreams were dreamed by many mothers,

but this mother-son pair was unique,

for them dreams were not baseless,

they believed in the myths of the Greek.

the king of their lands was a mighty person once,

but light of power made him mad,

his sword swayed his mind and heart,

everybody said “The kings is bad”

and this little kid grew,

with a crown on his head(dreaming),

he worshipped his dream,

his bond with it was amazing.

He grew and joined the king’s warmen,

and seeing his special skills,

the majesty himself trained him,

to slit the throats,

to ascend the tall grills.

The boy made him win many conquests,

he was trained just as the king,

and one day to the depressed soldiers he told,

he told them everything.

“I will be your new king people”,

and he said that with his eyes full of gleam,

cruelty of this cruel king will end,

but the soldiers laughed “baseless dreams”

this time the boy was really hurt,

“this is it,the time is here”,

he entered the kingdom’s decision room,

and he was welcome with cheers.

“ask my son,ask for whatever you want”,

and this king shall give it to you,

“all I want my Lord, is a fight,

and my Lord I want that fight against you”

“Promise me as a true king”,

“promise me that whoever wins the battle,

shall be the true ruler of people,

and the other shall shatter”

The king had no choice but to agree,

for the boy had made him promise,

both the warriors made their swords alive,

and flattered the weapon with a kiss.

they fought and the public watched,

“Baseless dreams”, said the norpals,

the fight was fierce, swords were loud,

people watched the show, there was a stir in the crowd.

In the end he won,

he who deserved it,

the one who had the power to dream,

the boy with the true grit.

the king wasnt killed,

rather he just faced death,

as he lied under the pointed sword,

the bravery of the boy made him melt.

the boy was made the next king,

and the news rushed through the town,

the boy became the new king,

he bore the emperor’s crown.

he called a counsel for li’l kids,

all with big dreamy eyes,

one day all of you will rule,

one fine day all of you will rise.

remember no dream is worthless,

no dream is too big,

there is no such thing in this world as,

“BASELESS DREAMS”!

Man, the social “animal”


God made us all with the same earth, the same water and the same sun. For quite some time everything was good and dull, till some intellectuals (these were called the leaders )found a way to distribute(a way of dividing)and then some smart guys distributed unevenly and the others(the gr8 common man) with the same old “walk in the herd” (we are social animals…lol)mentality drove us into these divisions. These smart guys were a fad. Somebody somewhere in this world spends all of his life to create something to augment human growth as a social animal(though we are animal 1st and then social) these devils find the other way of using it, to hamper this growth and some of us follow them finding it cool(though its the society that shivers).
Basically we humans are animals with the over developed brains ,ever strong aspirations , ever growing demands ,and something called arrogance(an attribute that fools invented). We are animals socialized with force and a compulsion!
The self imposing human is a weak animal(this is our compulsion).We are scared of dark(we don’t have glowing eyes),heights and find me one man who can fight a tiger with his nails(our natural equivalent of claws) and another fear that came after we socialized and that was the fear of loneliness .
The word Society is complex . It binds every human with its laws, rules and dogma. Ironically these laws which are made and meant for humans aren’t so human .They have loop holes waiting to be exploited .But one thing that really makes this society work is a very intimate bond between people who are not alike .
Well when people came together as a society some people made sections of it. They divided everything from food to land. Once these partitions flourished in their own shell we started to divide everything. Humans divided everything they laid their eyes on. They divided on color, they divided the land , and even their god. Then came the itch!
The natural human nature(exclusive to it) “I am superior” gave birth to wars(the human fetish),grudges and never ending conflicts. Though these things made life more occupying and exciting it also made it more time consuming and complex.
And once more the great common man(the maker) suffered and gave a new reason to the superior breed to molest it and suppress it.
He once his search of redemption ended in more deterioration.
And my dream turned dark!!!!!
