Participants in an orgy are inclined to hold worship services --- rather than inclined to be of service to others with real problems. Often it is difficult to helpfully criticize orgies ---because that which participants affirm is an essential aspect of the lives of real persons seeking to help others solve their real problems. Some persons attempt to control other's orgies --- by themselves participating in legal orgies; i.e., idolizing techniques of legalistic full control. It is probably more helpful to offer for others' consideration plain-talk descriptions of the orgies in which we participate, in order to bring into our states of consciousness a mutual awareness of the collusions which facilitate participation in orgies of all sorts and finally lead to indifference and boredom. In common parlance the term orgy is usually associated only with excessive expressions of the normal human needs for food and sexual union. Since these are primitive instinctual needs, it is only natural that orgies with them as focal points occurred first in human history and --- have become refined by technocrats during the course of history. Food and sexuality are not, however, the only basic elements of normal human life which may serve as the idols in the worship services of idolaters seeking hopelessly for fulfillment in orgies. In the context of a highly developed technocratic society---there exists a rich variety of basic elements of normal human life which may serve as the idols in worship services of idolaters who are seeking hopelessly for fulfillment in orgies. Consider: diversionary research, isolated graduate school programs, our legal "system", total electric homes, energy-happy living, our computer programmed society, theological fixes, militaristic orgies called wars, political conventions, professional society meetings, peace rallies, and innumerable other corporate activities. Each to a greater or lesser extent participates in the essential characteristics of an orgy. The ultimate orgy is to participate in the orgy of never participating in an orgy. There are a few who "successfully" fulfill this impossible dream in their own eyes, yet in reality it is never realized, not even through a miracle. (c) 1999 by Paul A.
