The human psyche can be thought of in a dualistic way. But at the end of the day it is a whole. A worthy goal in life is to get the spaghetti to merge with the waffle and to taste good on the same plate. The waffle is like a categorical structure like Kant's invocation of Plato's theory of Innate Ideas.

What:

"Normally, disincarnation (physical death) should occur in old age. The human body is like a flower or a fruit: It is born, grows, blooms, and withers. When it withers, it ceases to be useful to the spirit. The one natural, spontaneous, wise solution therefore would be disincarnation. Only in exceptional instances may disincarnation take place, without loss to the spirit, before man has completed the four stages of earthly existence. For instance, when a spirit belongs to a higher class than the 17th and incarnates on a special mission to awaken mankind or to contribute to moral changes designed to hasten the rhythm of evolution on this planet.

Man As Machine Metaphor????

a: human body ~
b: bunch of car parts

What:

"Any kind of joint pain, bone pain or bone arthritis has a cause. It's not just that things wear out, and anyone who says the human body is like a bunch of car parts is using the wrong metaphor. They are flat-out incorrect, and they do not understand how the human body really works. Car parts wear out the more you use them because you have gears rubbing on gears, which creates friction and the breakdown of metal, and, eventually, you end up with a gear that's worn out. That does not happen in the human body. You don't have bone rubbing on bone in a healthy human body. The more you use your body, in fact, the healthier your body gets."

Of course this new life takes root only gradually, but as Lewis explained, the entry of Christ into a human heart is like the landing of the Marines on the strategic part of an enemy-occupied island. Once the Marines establish their beachhead, the expulsion of the enemy from the rest of the island is only a matter of time. "

What:

"When it comes to keeping focused on the mission, the human heart is like a car that is severely out of alignment. The moment you take your hands off of the wheel, the car drifts quickly toward the ditch of "social ministry." Social ministry is easy and non-controversial. As pastors, we have to continually pull people back to evangelism. We are committed to blessing the city and meeting her social felt needs, but our primary purpose is bringin people to Jesus."

a: human heart ~

What:

"Detachment from material things is essential for attachment to God. According to Sheen, the human heart is like a stream that loses its depth as it divides its waters of affection into many channels. A patriot cannot serve more than one country, and a truly religious person cannot serve both God and Mammon. This is the choice that the designer religion has failed to make. "

What:

"The world is filled with despair, injustice and suffering. Humanity is remote from God, and cannot approach God because the human heart is like the black pit of Tehran, foul and filled with vermin. This nightmarish hell arising from the evil promptings of the human heart leaves humanity with a sense of hopelessness and sorrow. But the Light of God can illumine the darkest dungeon. Our only hope is to draw nearer to God, to become more like God, and this we cannot do except to draw ever closer to the Manifestation of God, in fervent prayer and meditation. "

"You can have everything but don't let it control you. You have to know when to be satisfied. The human heart is like a snake that wants to swallow an elephant. When people have too much, they become greedy. When too little, they steal. Observe yourself. Don't worry about past lives; just work on the present. The more you worry, the more you add weight to your tail. It's like scratching your own wound. "

This information comes to it through a sophisticated system of sensory neurons that connect the brain to organs like the eye, ear, nose, and mouth."

You see the same pattern in TV shows and commercials as of late. There is a lot of super saturated coloring to evoke in the viewer the desired emotional state .
