    But, you keep talking about the mother, what about the father?  You ignore the father. I'm not purposely ignoring the father. I'm concentrating on the mother because that's the most critical issue. The mother is primary the primal matrix. The word matrix and mother are of the same root as you know.  Matrix means the source of the material from which life springs, that's the mother. Fathers are by and large secondary.  At best they are poor substitutes for the primary.  They can be in emergency but it's a poor substitute, it's compensation.  Our problem today is the loss of the mother.  The species is losing the mother.
