This must not be construed as prescriptive. Taking this to heart in modern times is a great way to end up incel. It is also distinct from the modern Gamma male sexual instincts seen in anime and sci-fi, though there are enough overlaps that I think they are related.
Thal men are hunter-gatherers and trade specialists. Hunting is a group activity learned in childhood (20, <50). During childhood, a boy is taught a variety of life skills and observed for aptitudes. At a certain age (20 or so), they leave the main cluster of homes to live like hermits on the outskirts of society, practicing a specialized trade except when the males of the tribe gang up for routine hunts. They generally remain asexual and solitary unless the female social group picks them out for breeding. Because they are on the outskirts of town and are each intimately familiar with their “backyards”, they serve triple-duty as watchmen who can spot danger and communicate herd migrations. The space between tribal centers is a no-man's land of these territorial hermits.
Thal women are cattle herders, socialites, artists, and child-rearers. They accomplish most of these things at the same time because it's not difficult to watch the cows, gossip, assign age-appropriate chores to the kids, and play the occasional tune on a flute or idly sketch something funny and cutesy or craft some doo-dads for decorating the house. This gossip is how most of the important stuff gets decided, like who would make a cute couple and which males are so creepy that they need to be watched and maybe sent packing by the other males. If one of the girls has her eye on one of the eligible bachelors, she will generally wait for her group to notice her interest, approve it, and then force her to go talk to him.
A thal female never enters a thal male's backyard unless she is alone, with the intention of initiating courtship. I can't say how important it is for her to have the approval of the other females, but it seems to be so important that they developed the instinct of waiting to be pushed into a relationship by their peers (and also pushing their peers). At this point, it is the male thal's job to accept this overture by pursuing and initiating sexual contact, which is the main thing distinguishing this from modern Gamma instincts (where the girl basically throws herself vagina-first onto his dick, or slips and falls onto it by accident). Once they produce a child, they leave the outskirts and move back into polite society.
This post is also inspired a dream I had the other night (apparently this is a thing for me now). It may have been inspired by my background material from rdos and Tex (please read), but I doubt it was caused by these because this is not a topic I ever think about. Plus, it “feels” inspired and that seems to be my best (and only) guide nowadays.
Anyway, in this dream I was reading a book, sitting a bit removed from my social group. It was this book actually, and I remember which section it was even if I couldn’t read any distinct words (which has only happened in two dreams that I recall). There was a group of three girls with whom I was only vaguely acquainted, who were chattering away.
One of them broke from the group, sat next to me, and interrupted my reading. She asked a couple of questions with a big cheerful smile, just making small talk, and I engaged with the sort of shell-shock that you would expect from somebody who’s just been yanked out of their inner universe by a pleasant surprise. After about five seconds, I realized that she was talking to me because she was attracted to me. With perfect dream logic, I reasoned that there is zero reason an unrelated, perfectly fertile woman would enter my comfort zone and talk to me, unless she has decided to marry me. I instinctively understood that it was my job to validate this by making a move within a very brief time window, so after another five seconds I dove in and kissed her. If I had missed this brief time window, it would be tantamount to rejecting her blatant advances.
(I suspect I had this dream because I’m nearing the end of neanderthal adolescence, as a way of alerting me that I’m now an eligible bachelor. Or maybe this is all nuts.)
Later in the dream, after a great deal of time away from each other, I saw this girl in a group of women and kids. I was filled with happiness at the thought of talking to her and made a beeline to strike up a conversation. It seemed like the most natural thing in the world that we were a pair-bond connected by perfect trust in each other, even if we spent most of our time apart. It also seemed natural that I was no longer acting like a hermit, or de facto segregated from the community of women and children.
