Women moderate the social context, men represent points around which the social context bends. How do men and women value? Men value in discrete units, in terms of that which is valued; women value indirectly by equating themselves with values.

Women are the mechanism of self-regulation of society, men are the mechanism of keeping society pointed at values. Like a mathematical function this is interesting because of how the variables cross into each other's territories: men seek values, women seek to become values, therefore men seek women; women seek to stabilize a social climate of valuings, men are that stability qua self-valuing, therefore women seek men. But the self-valuing of a man is not this society, it is not literally social but rather is literally valuing-relational, hard-discrete units in juxtaposition; the man is not the intermediary fluidity substance between different values and holding different values together, that substance is women.

Women are society; women relate as relating itself, whereas men relate as those relatants which are related. For a woman, truth is the social substance, the ratio between values; for a man, truth is those values themselves, directly.

"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." --Parodites

"Between this sky and the faces turned toward it there is nothing on which to hang a mythology, a literature, an ethic, or a religion—only stones, flesh, stars, and those truths the hand can touch." --Camus

"It is a tedious thing to be always beginning life; they live badly who always begin to live." --Seneca

"I kick ass, all these other humans suck balls." --Inmendham

You've indicated this a few years back in a longer essay which blew my mind. This is a very powerful idea, here expressed with lucid simplicity.

I see a little problem with this as it is my observation that, in general, women are becoming more Yang and men are becoming more Yin.

If this trend continues the roles of men and women will be reversed.
