For a female it is more natural to become part of a couple than to remain single. For a male, on the other hand, it is more sensible to remain single than to become part of a couple – as a rule, the lesser part. Indeed, it could be said that we males have a kind of God-given right to resist the blandishments and encroachments of females.
When females become part of a couple they usually do so in the interests of reproduction. When males become part of a couple they generally do so for purposes of coupling.
It may be, in an adult sense, sex that distinguishes the men from the boys, but in the case of females it can only be kids that distinguish the women from the girls.
If the female elects to dance in freely somatic vein, the chances are that the male or, more correctly in this context, the pseudo-male will go into a pseudo-trance, thereby playing ‘second fiddle’ to the female. If, by contrast, the male elects to go into a freely psychic trance, the chances are that the female or, rather, the pseudo-female will become obliged to pseudo-dance in pseudo-bound somatic vein, thereby playing ‘second fiddle’ to the male.
You can’t really have it both ways. Either space rules pseudo-time in the case of free females and pseudo-bound males, or time leads pseudo-space in the case of the free male and pseudo-bound female. The one couple is alpha and pseudo-omega; the other … omega and pseudo-alpha.
