If someone is indifferent to you they will not care about being in your presence or attend to communications sent to them. Even if they are in your presence they are unlikely to notice you or care about your cares. People who hate each other communicate more than do those who are indifferent to each other. Thus indifference is more fully at the opposite extreme from love, than is hate; Love being the Power that unconditionally promotes communication. Indifference and its associate apathy are difficult to deal with precisely because they block communication. Those who are indifferent and apathetic are nearly beyond meaningful communication, they can barely be reached-- despite the appearance of communication in formal/conventional exchanges. Such exchanges are how they are---according to formula/conventions that they convey no real meaning---they merely fulfill expectations. The fulfillment of expectations without novelty conveys little, if any, real meaning. Indifferent/apathetic people behave in very predictable ways--conforming to meaningless conventional behavior patterns with regards to: politics, dress, work, religion, business, social life, education, philosophy, home building, marriage, sexual behavior, child rearing, etc. Such behavior may be conventionally studied with the tools of statistical predictive sciences---because the behavior is so predictable and devoid of unique behavior and people. Averages and standard deviations may readily be computed. Lovers find indifference a source of frustration when a loved one responds with indifference rather than with openness to more intimate communication. Coping with indifference is akin to punching a large half inflated balloon--absorbing all your effort but not relating to you in any meaningful way. Indifference can wear you out unless you have infinite energy and time. Thus, in the end, finite creatures may be worn down by indifference and become indifferent themselves--and perpetuate the disease by seeking to be at-ease in a superficial way. Only the Power of Love can find the way, energy, and time to defend against entrenched indifference. God is Love. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
