This part is written several months after the previous parts. I haven't been so much concerned with the theory of engineering love for the past few months, but rather did my best to practice what I preach, or, so to say, to put my deeds were my words are.
I am writing this addition, and more additions to come, to add what I have overlooked when I wrote the first ten chapters, or to set the perspective right on some matters.
I believe that the only real measurement for success in life is the "body count". People whom we conquer and colonize by making them love us, and surrendering themselves to become our sexual play ground.
This sounds archaic and uncivilized, but it's deeply biological. The rules have been refined, but the game is still the same.
The only real (biological) measurement of our value is how much we count on the stock exchange for partners in sexual play. Think of it as a composite index of each person's value. The index is derived from factors such as physical attractiveness, power, social respect, wealth, intellect, potential for faithfulness. Taking all these aspects into the count, we can, theoretically, for each society arrange a rather linear hierarchy... or rather two, one for males and one for females.
Of course, we have to be aware that for each male, the hierarchy of attractiveness of females is different (and for each female, the hierarchy of attractiveness of males). Somewhat different. In specific societies, the evaluation of males given by different females may slightly vary, but by and large is surprisingly similar.
Only very few subjects in a particular society will find obesity more attractive than an athletic built, and stupidity is seldom considered more attractive than intelligence when women have to arrange men in a hierarchy of sexual attractiveness.
While the above explanations may sound terribly theoretical, there are important practical implications. We have to be aware of these factors in order to apply them to our task of "engineering love".
I don't have a mechanical view of the world, but I do want to understand the mechanics that are part of human love interaction.
While I am aware of the stock exchange of sexual attractiveness, and the composite index that applies to me and all people around me, I also believe that this index is not the sole determinant of how we fare, of how successful we are... or of each person's "body count".
It's not the richest man who gets the most and the most beautiful girls. It's also not the most powerful one, who necessarily fares best. And a person who may be in the top one percent of the sexual attractiveness scale will most probably not be the one with the best "body count" (the one who gains the highest number of best-quality sexual partners).
In my opinion, that man will fare best who knows best to play the tricks of the trade. It is necessary to be a good liar. It's probably even essential. Honesty may not be the best policy. However, you want others believe that you think that "honesty is the best policy." Therefore, do repeat often that you do believe that honesty is the best policy. Only then can you be a perfect liar.
It's essential to lie if you want to improve your body count. You want to be loved by as many attractive women as possible, and you want to be loved as deeply as possible.
But most women are not that stupid. If they notice that you're just the type who wants to consume them, they will be reluctant to love you deeply, and they may not even grant you playing rights for their bodies. Most women are not willing to invest much emotion into men who just regard them as temporary play things.
And a good number of women are prepared to make concessions with regard to the physical attractiveness of men, if only he seems to be sufficiently serious.
"Seriousness", at the end of the day, comes down to the willingness to marry her. And to still be her husband when she is old and no longer attractive at all.
You don't want that. You want to be a youthful lover to the end of your days, with a new genuine love affair at least every few weeks, or rather, a good number of parallel love affairs at all times.
To be honest of your intentions will, in most societies, get you nowhere. That's not where you want to go. You want to land in bed with her, and you want her to agree to that because she loves you. Hookers do not count in the "body count".
In many societies, it won't be the most attractive men, and not the most powerful ones who will score the best "body count". A marriage impostor whom nobody suspects to be one will most likely win the trophy. So much for the tricks of the trade.
