    I met his wife in Eugene last year actually, he brought her along to meet up with me for coffee at Barry's Espresso, probably cause he was meeting an internet stranger for the first time and wanted back up, lol.

    But yeah this thread is hilariously farcical keep it up everyone

    Historically, it is based on commitment so that a woman is not left alone to take care of the offspring.

    In its most utilitarian form, marriage offers security. Traditionally, marriage secured dynastic wealth and power; it served as a vanguard for social stratification, where each class sought to preserve and strengthen its position in society. Even more anciently, in the hero tradition, and as echoed in the more modern incarnation of chivalric knights, romantic love represented a force for transformation. Only when faced with extreme adversity and near-death, did the knight purify himself and enter into the presence of a woman; such presence always mirrored an immortal state, which culminates in the creation of new life, both literally in the sense of a child, and also spiritually through rebirth into something greater.

    In Parzival, Sir Gawain first endures his lover Orgeluse's insults, representative of the internal struggle, which culminates in her attempted murder of the Gawain. Orgeluse leads Gawain to his death in a tumultuous ford, but even after learning of the plot, Gawain voluntarily risks death and crosses the ford on his horse. He fails, but then he tries again. He succeeds and triumphs over Nature. He must then avenge the murder of Oregeluse's former suitor, and he again faces death, but this time he overcomes another champion much like himself. In the end, he marries Orgeluse; he enters into her presence after he conquers his trials.

    In Dante's Inferno, Dante Cagliari travels through Hell and confronts each incarnation of his own sins along his way, such as representations of lust, greed, gluttony and so on. As he destroys the external manifestations of his own sins, he descends deeper into Hell. As he enters into Hell's lower levels, fire and intense heat burns the level's residents; fire here represents a force of purification, that which amplifies in intensity respective to increasingly egregious sins. In Hell's lower levels, filled with perpetrators of fraud and betrayal, fire (the potential for redemption) vanishes, replaced by darkness and then ice. Dante betrayed his oath to his lover, Bertrude, which means "shining light" (virtue). He cannot purify himself from his gravest sins through external means, and so he ventures further into the lowest level of Hell and faces Lucifer, which translates to "bringer of light," whose fallen nature similarly reflects Dante's fall away from the light (Bertrude). Dante kills Lucifer, and in doing so redeems himself; he reclaims his lost light, leaves the darkness of Hell and ascends into Paradise, where he reunites with the light (Bertrude).

    The same kind of symbolism appears in The Illiad. After victory in battle, Achilles gains Briseïs as a prize. Briseïs can also be translated to Hippodamia, which means, "she who masters horses." Horses have always been associated with elemental forces, such as water. Remember that Sir Gawain tried to cross the ford on his horse, where he rides the horse over the water, or in other words, holds mastery over nature, which allows him to overcome it. The Greek god Poseidon holds dominion over the sea, earthquakes and horses, all symbolic of Nature's unrestrained power. Fathered by the hero Peleus, which translates to "muddy," and the sea nymph Thetis, Achilles embodies qualities from the fusion of earth and water, both elemental forces of Nature. Thetis desires Achilles ascension to Mount Olympus, a place elevated above the earth and sea, or in other words, a place above the elemental forces of Nature. Zeus rules Mount Olympus as the God of sky and thunder, representative of an elevation above the domains of Nature's forces. To immortalize the Achilles, Thetis dips him into the River Styx, which represents a purging of mortality through confrontation with death, where the River Styx contains the souls in Hades. In another version of the story, Thetis anoints Achilles in ambrosia, the "nectar of the gods," which represents a divine substance. Thetis then lights Achilles on fire. Like in Dante, fire again represents a force of purification, which burns away the shackles of mortality (sin). Achilles cannot finish the transformation, however; Thetis dips all of Achilles into the River Styx save for his heel, which represents some retention of mortality, specifically that endowed onto Achilles by his parent, the sea nymph (water). In the other version, Peleus prevents Thetis' purification of Achilles by fire; in this case the "muddy" earth obstructs Achilles obtainment of immortality.

    When Achilles' king, Agamemnon steals Briseïs, Achilles loses his lover (wife) and withdraws from battle. He loses "she who masters horses," and cannot contain the unrestrained forces of Nature. He experiences wild emotion (rage) and refuses to fight for Agamemnon. In doing so, he loses his friend Patroclus, which translates into "glory." Without mastery over Nature, Achilles cannot obtain the glory of a legendary warrior. Only after Agamemnon returns Briseïs does Achilles return to the fight, but to keep her, he must conquer the greatest warrior alive: Hektor. Hektor translates to "restraint;" Achilles must overcome his emotions and channel his mastery over Nature against an opposing equal demarcated as a force of restraint. Achilles kills Hektor, and in doing so, he destroys his unrestrained self, gains the greatest glory, retains his lover Briseïs and descends into Elysium, the paradise of heroes.

    I'm confused. Why does he attack marriage and yet has a wife? I suppose he doesn't like the idea behind it but finds out that he's monogamous anyways? The more I see of him the more absurd he gets.

    Don't carry the "is it Peat approved" logic too far, lol. Having a wife/girlfriend can be very therapeutic for various reasons. If for some reason the relationship with her turned out bad, don't blame the idea, but rather your selection skills. Some people are simply not meant to jibe well with other certain peoples. But in a healthy relationship having a wife can considerably increase dopamine levels.

    I would guess that his reply concerning marriage is taken out of context. This is how rumors begin. If you find him absurd, then I think that you have not read or listened to him extensively.

    It depends on whether or not you believe that holding contradictory ideas at the same time is a sign of absurdity or intelligence

    Bad relationships and big stressful families can contribute to the state of learned helplessness. Quality over quantity it's best when it comes to relationships, I'm a minimalist in that sense because people can be a total drag, nothing more stressful than the presence of someone you don't like. In the other hand if you are with someone that understands you, that gets your life style and diet choices it's a great way to grow and better yourselves

    If I may, adjusting perspective on what you said, removes the inanimate thing as the detriment. So, if you say:
    "Marriage to the wrong person was the single worst mistake I ever made..."
    I think is a lot more accurate. Marriage isn't good or bad, it's the relationship itself.

    I’ve always assumed and believe Dr. Peat is married.

    Marriage can be fantastic.

    I’ve come across texts that refer to higher level thinking as that which involves rules, and exceptions to the rule. The person adapts to or accepts the exceptions and makes room for alternatives to the rule when they themselves are capable of higher level thinking. In this situation, ray may be critical of the property mentality and how it influences Love relationships, but may subscribe to marriage in his own personal life because he sees the good in it and it works for his particular situation. So, to some he may be a hypocrite; to others he may be flexible and adaptable. I would say it depends how you look at it.

    Marriage works for some people. Most importantly, raising kids and doing couple stuff.
