If self praises no other, then thereby self is pointing to its presumption of transcendence. If self's parent praised no other, then self becomes the victim of the child's recordings of parent's presumptions; parent becomes as a god and haunts self in later years. Self's focus of worship is inappropriate. If as a child, self correctly perceived parent as lesser than self as child, then in later years self is haunted with the recording of self's arrogant presumption of transcendence, and self's children in their later years may be haunted by their memory of the behavior which flowed from the haunting memory of that arrogance. The sins of the parents are visited upon their children unto the fifth and the sixth generation. Sin as estrangement flows from a basic lack of honesty within self's self-image. Un-helpful behavior flows from that lack of integrity---because a basic dishonesty about self is an inadequate foundation for mutual awareness and mutual understanding. Finite humans can not behave intelligently so long as they deny their finitude---rather than deal with finitude honestly. Self may deny finitude either overtly or covertly. Failure to praise that which transcends self constitutes a covert denial of finitude, for a habitual failure leaves self with the impression that that which transcends self is not real. That which self fully understands does not merit self's praise, for self transcends it. That which is approached as object and analyzed into its component elements --- can not in its objective reality be the focus of true praise. The self that approaches all realities as if they are only objects, or are not; finds naught to merit praise --- for those realities which truly merit praise are defined as unreal. Thus the self fails to praise --- and falls into the trap of unrealistic self- images with the generations of natural consequences which flow from them. Worship is essential to life. Scientists because of their dominant objective self- images are in greater danger of presumptuousness and arrogance than are non-scientists. Any science education effort which does not explicitly deal with these realities of life will fail humane testing. (c) 1999 by Paul A.
