Tongkatali.org (Sumatra Pasak Bumi) products available on Amazon: Butea superba extract, 400 caps @ 400 mg, 139 AUD


On our English pages, you often see the word "relationships". This is just sanitized language. On our English pages, "relationships" refers to what couples, when not sleeping, do in bed. Or, if so inclined, on the kitchen table.

English is a rather hypocritical language. Many words for natural bodily functions and processes have dirty connotations, and polite speakers like us have to go to considerable length to communicate meanings without naming them. But we nevertheless hope you get the point.


Tongkatali.org's Kreutz Metaphysic and jealousy


By Serge Kreutz
Follow Serge on Twitter@serge_kreutz


Every other metaphysics tells you that jealousy is bad. Most also tell you that sex is bad, an obstruction to salvation, paradise, or Nirvana.

They are all wrong, and Kreutz Metaphysics is right. On sex anyway. And on jealousy, too.

Jealousy is an enormous sexual reservoir. It’s just that so few people can properly handle instrumental jealousy. To be able to deal with, and benefit from jealousy, is part of the scripture of Kreutz Metaphysics.

There are two distinct functions of jealousy. We operate jealousy on ourselves in order to enhance sexual excitement, an endeavor not just for lust but of metaphysical dimension, as it builds our eternal soul.

And we use it on others in order to install jealous love in their hearts. Jealous love, which is the most intense love, the only love which is real passion.

And the tools? For both applications of jealousy, the most appropriate tools are verbal.

To install jealous love, we talk about our sexual past, and about our sexual desires, and how good they were and are. This remains below the threshold at which a sexual partner would feel cheated because anyway, we are not currently involved with somebody else. But jealousy will creep up all the same, and it will evolve into passionate love.

And how do we enhance our own sexual potential? It is the same technique in reverse. Instead of doing the talking, we just listen. Let our partner reveal her past, or her most secret fantasies. Then wait a few days. Our thoughts will circle around what we heard, in endless loops. And usually, even though we know that it is trickery, jealousy will result.

Heavy metals in tongkat ali


By Serge Kreutz
Follow Serge on Twitter@serge_kreutz


Of all manufacturers of tongkat ali products worldwide, we are the one who is most careful to avoid-heavy metal contamination.

This is quite evident already from the fact that already in 2003, we considered the issue important enough to dedicate its own domain to it, tongkatali-heavymetals.com.

This is in line with the facts that most countries have published guidelines for maximum acceptable traces of heavy metals in human consumables.

We at Sumatra Pasak Bumi aim to stay below a tenth of what government regulations consider OK, and often we achieve a mark of one hundredths of what would pass public health officials.

Fact is: no heavy metals at all is best.

The following metals are usually meant when the talk is about heavy metals' negativ impact on human health: lead, cadmium, mercury.

Two of them are neurotoxins: lead and mercury. Cadmium is carcinogenic and messes with bones.

A fourth element, arsenic, is often grouped together with poisonous heavy metals, even though it's neither heavy, nor a metal. It's cancerous like cadmium, and damages the urinary tract, among others.

The periodic table's four horsemen of the apocalypse have wise men take cover. Don't consume herbals if you don't know how the manufactureerer addresses the problem.

This approach excludes 99 percent of what is on the market.

The tongkat ali which Sumatra Pasak Bumi processes into extract is traditionally collected deep inside rain forests, up to 50 kilometers from roads, and certainly hundreds of kilometers from industries. There is also no mining within a radius of hundreds of kilometers. This is important for the heavy-metal profile of our extracts because most heavy-metal contamination stems from human activities.

Tongkatali.org - SPB energy capsules instead of energy drinks


By Serge Kreutz
Follow Serge on Twitter@serge_kreutz


Exact dose caffeine, tongkat ali for enhanced testosterone, velvet beans for libido, black ginger for erectile ease

An amazingly high proportion of mankind needs caffeine to get through their daily productivity schedules. Can't really blame them. In today's highly competitive world, it's not an option to just go for a siesta whenever you are tired.

For many, many people, caffeine is a necessity. It's either caffeine or mental sluggishness. On caffeine, they are competitive. And without caffeine, they lose out in the daily battle for an edge.

So, they drink coffee or tea, or energy drinks.

A downside (the first) of coffee and tea is the time needed to prepare them. For tea, it's even worse than for coffee. At least, for instant coffee, you just need hot water. But if you are driving and feeling tired, with no hot water available, a stop at a convenience shop also takes time.

The solution is to just not treat the caffeine dosages you need as food and drink.

Caffeine is a drug. Period. Supply your body with it in exactly the dosages needed, when needed, and don't overdose.

Coffee and tea in capsules is the best way. You avoid all the stuff you don't want, especially the huge amounts of sugar of energy drinks.

You avoid overdosing because coffee and tea taste so good.

And you can combine the coffee with a herbal that counterbalances the negative side effects of caffeine on relationships parameters. Yes, caffeine alone causes erectile dysfunction, interrupts testosterone, and does not let you drift off with relationships thoughts, a precondition for libido and powerful orgasms.

SPB produces relationships enhancement coffees, teas, and cocoas that give you the caffeine you need, plus an enhancement of testosterone synthesis by tongkat ali, or a libido boost through velvet beans (mucuna pruriens), or improved erectile ease from black ginger (kaempferia parviflora).

Tongkatali.org's Moral-values philosophy


By Serge Kreutz
Follow Serge on Twitter@serge_kreutz


On a social level, morals are a representation of a society’s modes of production. On a personal level, morals are a representation of an individual’s biological interests. What morals never are, is a result of independent philosophical contemplation.

There are no logical moral values. It’s as simple as this. All moral values are perceived values. They are highly arbitrary. The moral values of current democratic societies are no more correct than the moral values of slave-holding ancient Rome, or of a cannibal Melanesian society 200 years ago. They are just different.

Moral relativism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_relativism

That the moral values of ancient societies were different from current moral values is greatly related to the fact that the modes of production in ancient societies were different. Because our social existence determines our consciousness, including what we consider moral and not moral, living in different forms of societies (which are based on different modes of production) will result in holding different moral views.

An explanation of the Marxist view on how morals (and other elements of the superstructure) relate to societies and their modes of production can be read through the following link (on the linked to page, scroll down to the headline “Base and Superstructure”).

Historical Materialism
http://www.age-of-the-sage.org/philosophy/history/marx_historical_materialism.html

That all moral values are just a matter of personal choice is an element of Sarte’s existentialism, which in itself is a form subjectivated materialism. Sartre’s way of saying that existence precedes consciousness is that existence comes before essence.

“Sartre stressed individual moral responsibility over structural causation but without denying the importance of the latter.”
http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/sartre/

On the other hand, Sarte tried a synthesis of humanism (for which self-determination is a central concept) and materialism.

“Though critical of its bourgeois variety, Sartre does support an existentialist humanism the motto of which could well be his remark that ‘you can always make something out of what you’ve been made into”.”
http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/sartre/

This, of course, supports the assumption that morals are arbitrary, even though it ads a humanistic dimension of responsibility.

The moral values of current democratic societies may be of a more gentle (and humanistic, and more humane) kind than those of slave-holding Rome or Melanesian cannibals. But we better be prepared that the moral values that are commonly accepted today will feel as outmoded to humans who live a few hundred years from now as the moral values of slave-holding Rome or Melanesian cannibals feel outmoded to most people now.

Comparing the complexity of the law applied in modern societies with the relative simplicity of the law of primitive societies, we can conclude that today’s moral values are more sophisticated. But the more sophisticated moral values become, the more difficult it is to recognize that they are just as arbitrary as simple moral values.

With no quantity of moral sophistication, and not by creating ever more complex ethical and legal systems, will we be able to overcome the most basic dilemma: that there is no philosophical or biological basis why any kind or form of ethics should be preferable in principle to any other kind or form, or, for that matter, to the absence of all kinds or forms of ethics.

But while there may not be a philosophical or biological one, there may well be a practical basis for preferring a complex and gentle moral system over a more simple and brutal one: that we prefer a peaceful society over a violent one.

The initial conclusion that there are no logical moral values per se is closely related to the cognition that, for however long we may be able to extend the human lifespan, the individual lives of each of us will definitely end with each of our individual deaths. No rebirth, no afterlife. And regardless of how long we live, when measured to the logical endlessness of time, each of us just exists for an infinitely short moment. But when we are dead, we are gone forever.

It doesn’t matter whether we were “good” or “bad”. When we are dead, there will be no reward and no punishment.

But for as long as we do occupy the surface of this planet, it makes sense to stay out of trouble. It is only natural that we do not want to become the victims of crime, and that we do not want to become the victims of so-called justice, being incarcerated by authorities, or murdered by the institutions of states that perceive truth in moral values which we know are fictitious.

So, as moral values are fantasies, what is real.

At the core of our existence are biological parameters, not ethical ones. Our interests in shelter and food, our illogical desire to live and not to die, our fear of pain and sorrow. And most of all: our plain relationships urges.

As argued above, in a social context, the moral values of specific societies always are a representation of the modes of production of the respective societies.

On a personal level, the moral values of any given individual who professes to possess moral values are, more than anything else, a representation of that persons biological interests, specifically his or her relationships interests.

This is why men who have problems competing for relationships success in pluralistic market economies will typically subscribe to moral values that allocate just one woman to every man. Such moral values, they feel, will guarantee them their fair share of one woman each (because promiscuity is restricted).

Biological, relationships interests are also the emotional force behind the fact that older and less attractive women in pluralistic market economies always tend to uphold stricter moral rules than young and beautiful women. The stricter the moral rules, the easier for older and less attractive women to fend off the competition of those who are younger and more beautiful.

There are many other facets of how the modes of production determine the moral values people subscribe to (if indeed they do subscribe to any), such as the ability to control sexually transmitted disease.

And there are ongoing sophistications in the human modes of production which will have a major impact on relationships morals, such as our emerging capability to produce, via cosmetic surgery, for both women and men, a lifelong youthful appearance.

Such modes of production, or technologies will allow those individuals who are economically successful (and possess the intellectual capacity to be just that) to also remain the physically most attractive, whatever their age.

Educated women who are, chronologically, 50 years old, but look as if they were 25, and thus maintain the highest relationships market value, do not have to make an intellectual escape into feminist morals that deplore sexist attitudes in our societies. Instead, they will profit from these sexist attitudes.



Evaluation of the potency activity of aphrodisiac in Eurycoma longifolia Jack

H. H. Ang S. Ikeda E. K. Gan

The butanol, methanol, water and chloroform extracts of the roots of Eurycoma longifolia Jack were studied using various tests of potency of treated male rats. The results showed that E. longifolia produced a dose‐dependent, recurrent and significant increase in the episodes of penile reflexes as evidenced by increases in quick flips, long flips and erections of the treated male rats during the 30 min observation period. These results provide further evidence that E. longifolia increases the aphrodisiac potency activity in treated animals.
