In what we can only imagine was a moment of pure, authentic zen-like calm, a Buddhist monk in Thailand hacked off his penis because he got an erection while he was meditating. He was rushed to hospital where nurses treated the wound but he declined to have it reattached.
The monk claimed he had "abandoned everything" and that's why he didn't want it reattached.
After all, how else will it learn? A lifetime of hormonal imbalance and identity crisis should be enough to get him to the next cycle.
