Scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg made a similar discovery about men being totally confounded by women in an amazing experiment. The experiment was amazing because it took place not on earth, but in the Spiritual World!
In his theological book Conjugial Love, Swedenborg observed an experiment between husbands and their wives in the afterlife. He reported that all women emit a sphere of love, which has a profound effect on the psyche of men. The experiment consisted of separating the husbands from their wives, then—from Divine permission—the sphere of love emanating from each wife was removed.
After that, the angelic husbands were reunited with their angelic wives.
Surprisingly, the husbands not only failed to recognize their wives but they no longer had the slightest clue as to what women even were. When the sphere of love was restored to the wives, their husbands’ recognition returned.
You would have to read Swedenborg’s entire book to make sense of this spiritual phenomenon.
However, several years ago I had some fun with this unique spiritual dynamic, reported by Swedenborg. When I was attending seminary in California, a fellow female student who was from another faith-system but quite liberated, was conversing (and complaining) to me about the insensitivity of men.
Recalling Swedenborg’s observation from my memory, I told her the problem was even worse than she could imagine.
