Here is an interesting twist about the role of the female in the church, that just popped into my head. Priests and nuns do not marry. The question becomes what happens if natural instinctive sexual pathways are blocked using the mind and willpower? One way to answer this is picture a stream that is meandering and flowing. I next place a dam and block the flow. The water downstream will dry up (habits broken), while water will start to build up behind the dam (creates potential). When it gets high enough, the water can go around the dam, over the dam, or it can be used for hydroelectric power. The result could be compulsions, sublimations or even directed libido, all which make use of the ancient instinctive potential. The church was trying to fundamentally alter instinct; advance the personality firmware into another bud. Since celibacy does not procreate, positive or negative changes to the instinctive flow cannot be passed on biologically. This does not harm the natural instincts as a whole. However, the things that are learned or displayed can be passed via education. Like any invention, it only takes one inventor yet multitudes can use it based on the mind. The new firmware would have been connected to the mind and would take advantage of the natural potentials to generate the electricity. The role of women played a role in the chosen dams.
