social, psychological and spiritual needs, just as pornography addresses the
deepest, most basic drive of the human psyche. It should not be surprising

at many things in life one can find similarities and needs - there's only a
limited amount of human behaviour after all.

dark desires of human nature, so what? The problem, as always, is proving
that those desires caused the events and that the events did not actually
happen on some, physical or even interdimensional, level.

desire in the human psyche to be in touch with mother earth and by believing
they were thrusting hands into the soil of her body, gardeners were merely
expressing connections to our planet.
