Perhaps there exist lovers who because they are lovers have the power to read minds, to know what other people are thinking, desiring, planning, colluding---without benefit of traditional verbal communication. Perhaps technocrats can not keep secrets from such mind reading lovers, and so can not hope to successfully manipulate them with secret plans. One of the collusions that technocrats participate in is the collusion that profound mind reading is impossible, because to technocrats the only kind of reliable communication is verbal communication---and especially explicit communication. Technocrats are likely to take note that there are no people engaged in efforts to act in terms of information acquired through such mind reading---and therefore conclude that there is no such mind reading taking place. The conclusion is based upon the false premise that mind reading lovers would act in ways which the technocrats would recognize as being based upon information acquired through such mind reading. Since technocrats are not intimately familiar with mind reading lovers---they can not check out the premise upon which they base their conclusion. The conclusion is thus not very secure. What would mind reading lovers be likely to do? They would be likely to do what the God of Love has traditionally done, seek to set people free by seeking to be in dialogue with them in freedom. They would not seek to violate the technocrats in the ways that technocrats often violate other people. They would offer to accept technocrats as they are, and seek to be in dialogue with them as they are. Such is the nature of lovers. Yet, technocrats are bound to presume that others will behave in a manner which they can understand, in the manner of technocrats who behave according to systematic and logical plans which are understandable in rational ways. Their presumption make the behavior of lovers a mystery--- both because of their being uninformed, and because lovers' behavior has its essentially mysterious aspects. Technocrats would do well to be open to any mind reading lovers who may seek to be in dialogue with them. It could be that a mind boggling dialogue is waiting for them. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
